    Getting Started With Google Plus

    In this module I want to show you how to get started with Google plus. And the first step in doing

    that is just setting up your own personal Google plus account and profile. And to do that just go to

    google.com and see this gray strip at the top which is what is called the Google bar.

    And you see plus here on the top left. Just click that and thats how to get to the Google plus

    page. And there are feed up and options and things here going on. But all we have to do here now

    is click on create an account and enter your current email address, password, another password,

    keep you singed in and enable web history. You turn it off if you want.

    Then you go to some basic profile information here. Your date of birth, where youre from,

    captcha code and agree to the terms and service. So Im just gonna enter some domain

    information here to create a test account coz I already have my proper one. Its pretty

    straightforward so we can see, its like signing up for anything really so Ill do it quickly and show

    you around. And I accept create my account at the bottom just click that. Account creation

    information so itll send a verification email which I will get and when I get that note then Ill come

    back. And actually Google has taken me to verify my account page.

    So you could get it by your text message or voice call so you can choose your option that you

    want. So I wanna go for text message once so Ill do that now. And just click send verification

    code. I should get that to my phone now. Yeah it has arrived so Ive got a verification code to my

    phone now so Im gonna type that to verify my new account. And click verify. Its quite similar to

    the Facebook verification thing. So here now I have the option to sign up for the actual Google

    plus account itself or the profile.

    So click Join at the bottom once youve got in your name and your gender. And there we go.

    Were now signed up. Weve got a new Google plus profile. And the first off you can see an option

    is to add people you know into your circles main menu and I think they post all these from your

    email or whatever but Im going to skip this for the moment. Some famous people here youve got

    an option to add those into your circles to follow them as well. This part is almost like twitter so in

    a way Google plus is trying to meld Facebook and Twitter together and combine them into a new

    improved system. Im gonna skip for now and continue anyway.

    As you can see you can plan your personal profile information your school, where you work,

    where you live. You dont have to add these if you dont want. So well leave it blank for now. So

    this is my profile its now saved successfully. Here we are. The standard basic profile. Now this is

    basically like a Facebook profile not to be confused with Facebook page. So this is like your Google

    plus profile and not to be confused with the Google plus page.

    They both look quite similar but as we go on in the course Im gonna show you how to tell them

    apart quite easily and also make sure you dont inadvertently start posting things as yourself on

    your mentally edited page and things that got there. So everything is quite simple and the whole

    set up Im sure is really great. Just follow the steps and everything will be opened on pretty

    quickly. On the top here weve got the different sections I showed in Module One.

    We have the Stream, we have Photos. So this will show my own photos or ones from my friends

    and circles but as this is just a new account I just made this is blank for now. And this my profile

    here that appears when someone comes to the page. This got lots of spaces here for information

    which Im gonna leave blank for now. And then we could the stuff like Posts, About me, Photos,

    Videos, and Plus one. So any pages I plus one which is just like a Facebook like theyre gonna

    appear here. So you can see theres a lot of similarities but I think the Google Plus One is making

    big strides to improving than a lot of the other social media system that are there at the moment.

    Which is why I want to make this course. At the top here is the of circles.

    This is gonna be a very important one in your business pages which I will show later. But this is

    your organizer contacts so lets say you have 200 friends. Most will be Facebook friends and some

    of them are acquaintances, some of them are business people. This lets you drop the name form

    here into the circle r create a new circle.

    So Ill just create a new circle called IM meaning internet marketing and create a circle. So here

    we go now. So lets say Ive added a few of you guys of my customers. I will drag you down here

    in my IM circle and I could connect directly with you. This is very powerful a very powerful feature

    and in particular its gonna be very powerful for the business pages and its one of the big selling

    points I want to, I want to get across to you so you can sell the services yourself to your

    businesses. And then which got a lot of games section as well if you have some free time.

    Theres a lot of games in Google plus. Okay guys, so that concludes the set up of your own

    personal Google plus account. You can search and share you content here as normal and thats

    about it. Youve got everything in one place here so the real power of the system is for business.

    It comes with the business pages. So this is just step one of many.
