How to Use Google+ to Easily Record a Video Blog

Google+ for author platform buildingBy Marcy Kennedy (@MarcyKennedy)

When someone talks about the advantages of video blogging for your author platform does your heart start to race with that how-am-I-going-to-find-time-to-learn-another-new-thing feeling? First you’d have to figure out what technology you need, then you’d have to buy it, and then you’d have to learn how to use it.

Or you could just sign up for Google+.

Google+ offers what they call Hangouts and Hangouts on Air, also known as “video options for the tech challenged.”

You can read the rest of this post on the Author Media blog, where I’m guest posting again about Google+.

If you’re tired of hearing about Google+, have no fear. This is my last post on the topic for the foreseeable future (i.e., probably for the rest of the year).

If you want to know more about Google+, make sure you register for my 90-minute webinar on Saturday, June 15. A Crash Course to Using Google+ to Build Your Author Platform ($35) covers how to effectively set up your profile, what to do about circles and communities, other ways to use hangouts and hangouts on air, and more. Even if you can’t attend the live event, the webinar will be recorded and sent to all registrants. Click here to register!
