In his book, Dan Schwabel shows job seekers and professionals how to leverage the power of digital media to manage their personal brand. So you can see why the content can quickly become obsolete.

How to Get Started with Google+ Hangouts On Air

I've been using Google+ hangouts for some time now for virtual meetings; they're great, just like Skype but without the cumbersome email and downloading Skype to my computer. With the click of a button within Google+, I can chat live using both audio and video components with up to 10 people.

Google's taken this concept another step further by launching its Hangouts On Air which is being gradually released in beta to users. Hangouts On Air allows any Google+ user to stream live video to the whole world. It will also record the video and save it to your YouTube Channel.

My lucky day was when I met Suzanne Hull at a local coffee shop for one of her no-charge Office Hours sessions. I told her my social media failures and frustrations as well as what my vision was for how this could be a part of my marketing. Suzanne put together a step-by-step action plan on paper for my business. Since that day several months ago, going at a pace I could manage, Suzanne has coached me in how to use Twitter, Facebook, my Blog, LinkedIn and an E-newsletter to further my business. I have seen measureable, positive results in new customers finding my business and with how my business is positioned in my target market. I feel confident I can use the tools Suzanne has shown me to keep my Social Media presence positive and growing.
