This week for our Google Plus Friday video lesson, we discuss the recent launch of Google Plus Community Badges. Actually, Google Plus completely redesigned all their badges to provide more options in size and appearance (check out examples in the sidebar). A part of that redesign was the ability to now create Google Plus Community Badges.
This is a huge win for community managers. I own the Insurance Inbound Marketing community, a very active community of insurance professionals helping each other grow online. Up until now, the only way to attract new members was traditional links inside of blog posts.
With the addition of Google Plus Community Badges I can now add a badge to my digital insurance marketing blog in the sidebar to help grow that community faster without having to directly mention it in a blog post.
