I've been using Google+ for more than a year now, but I know I'm not getting the most out of it yet. Lynette Young's new book is chock full of practical, actionable information. I bought the book this morning, did my first run through, and found myself repeatedly saying "I've got to do that!" I will be going back over it as a "Google+ instruction manual this weekend and making lots of changes in how I'm using Google+.

This is the best $10 investment a small business owner can make to prepare for the new year. I will be recommending it to friends and clients! -- Chuck Hall

Lynette Young has written the guide that any small business owner needs to quickly ramp up their Google+ participation and marketing efforts.

Few of us feel like we need yet another social network to join, but this book does a great job of explaining the how, what, and why of how you can benefit from Google's social network.

The book starts with the nuts and bolts of what you can do in Google+ (like posting, commenting, sharing, +1s, circles, Hangouts, etc.) and then goes through how best to use it, too.

You can tell that Lynette really "gets" the network, as well as the needs of small business owners. Why? Because she has over 1,500,000+ followers on G+ and is a small business owner herself! Her advice on how to use Google+'s profiles, pages, circles, and hangouts for your business is based on personal experience.

I particularly liked the book's focus on realistic tasks for small business owners. She walks you through planning your time, how to use the network for lead generation and PR, how to keep your customers happy, and a step by step one month action plan that can get even novices up and running quickly.

A quick and practical read that can add value to your business.

Excellent short book. The author's goal is to help you to realize that "Google + makes it easy for the small business owner with limited resources to be on an "even playing ground" with large corporations that have seemingly unlimited budgets." Google + is more than a social media network: it's the platform by the online search and advertising giant that owns the two most used search engines in the world, Google and YouTube. So visibility for your small company is at your fingertip.

Start with the end of the book: Your "One-Month Action Plan."
Browse through Lynette's "One-Month Action Plan" to realize that leveraging Google+ for your small business is not an insurmountable endeavor. "By taking 15- 30 minutes a day for one month, you can build a solid Google + presence and plan. At the end of one month, you will have circled 100 people and left comments on almost that many pieces of content. You can build a solid following and a library of content both available in Google + and via search on the Internet if you follow this plan. By focusing on a handful of tasks at a time and building on progress you've made the days before, you will come to the end of the Action Plan with a stronger understanding of Google + and the start of a community."
 Now, read the book...

One hour or so of good reading
Lynette doesn't drown you under tons of marketing hoops and loops, and instead walks you through the basics of Google+ in six chapters (plus the last one) that describe the platform's main features, provide ideas to promote and support your business, increase your leads, enhance your support, or organize events with your customers and leads.
