How to Create a Highly Visible Presence on Google+ – Adventures in Visibility with Stephan Hovnanian

Stephan Hovnanian on How to Create a Highly Visible Presence on Google+After a rocky start with a major technical gremlin, in this episode of Adventures in Visibility, I talked with my colleague and friend, Stephan Hovnanian of Shovi Websites.

Our topic of the day was how to create more visibility on Google+, not so coincidentally the title of Stephan’s latest ebook in his Google+ Pro Tips series. We also discovered the answer to the question: Introvert or Extrovert as well as Stephan’s most memorable adventure (at 41:37 in the video below).

Stephan Hovnanian owns Shovi Websites, a web design and marketing firm located outside Boston, Massachusetts. Stephan has always stressed the importance of strategy and intent when building and managing the web presences of his clients, and Google+ is no different. 

Stephan is a real-life example of a personal brand that uses Google+ for networking and marketing. His strategies have increased his web traffic and search ranking; opened up opportunities for speaking gigs and webinars; and brought in contributions to high-profile blogs such as MarketingProfs and 12 Most.

On the Hangout we discussed how to create a highly visible presence on Google+:

  • Why you are now a television channel (5:02)
  • Posting strategies (7:27)
  • Commenting strategies (15:18)
  • The best way to engage with influencers in your niche (25:05)

    Thanks for sharing this great video presentation, Denise. The attachment of Google’s own Social Media platform to it’s ranking system was always going to be important, but it’s vital to know what you should – and shouldn’t – be doing.
