The World According to Guy: Stop Pimping and Start Growing Your G+ Circles

Best-selling author Guy Kawasaki believes Google+ will ultimately win the social networking game. “This is Google, after all,” he said on BlogTalkRadio University earlier this week, noting that we shouldn’t underestimate the power of the No. 1 search engine.

Guy shared ready-to-apply tips from his book with the BTR community. Select the image above to listen to the podcast.

Guy’s chat with us was not only informative — he answered a bunch of BTR listener and host questions — but also super entertaining. At one point, he likened himself to the Pope! Listen to the full interview for a fun breakdown of this important social networking tool.

OUR BURNING GOOGLE+ QUESTIONS

Besides buying his new book (on Amazon as both softcover and ebook versions, in the iBooks store, at Barnes & Noble as both Nook and softcover versions), we asked Guy the best way our BTR community can get started on G+.

Q: Should our hosts create a personal page or a branded page?

Guy: Branded pages have limitations because the person has to follow you before you can follow that person back. Your hosts are people first, brands second. If you’re representing Boeing or Porsche or Procter & Gamble, then yes, create a brand page. But for most solo practitioners, create a personal page.

Q: What sets Google+ apart from Twitter and Facebook?

Guy: Twitter is about gaining perspective, such as how long the line is at Starbucks, there’s an earthquake in Peru, etc. And Facebook is for pre-existing friends — people you know enough to care about their baby, their cat rolling over, etc. — you’re connected by blood or history. Google+ is about passions. For instance, very few of my Facebook friends share my passion for photography, so I can share those posts on Google+, which is for finding people you don’t know yet who share a common interest with you.

Q: Can you talk about the power of Google behind G+?

Guy: No one knows search like Google. Let’s say you’re interested in SXSW but can’t go this year, so during it, you want to know what’s happening. If type SXSW into Google, you’ll see standard coverage by the New York Times, Mashable, CNet, etc. All the journalistic entities. But if you type the same keyword into Google+, you’ll see posts by people you know — insider posts that are remarkably different from, say, the Christian Science Monitor‘s posts on it. Google+ gives you more personalized results.

Q: Since many of our BTR hosts have shows on topics they’re passionate about, what’s the simplest way to grow their audience on G+?

[Guy’s answer to this one was short and smart. Listen to the interview online to find out this simple-yet-powerful tip.]

Google+ is one of the most powerful ways BTR hosts can grow their listening audience.

Q: What’s the best way to use G+ for self-promotion?

Guy: I use what I call The NPR Model: NPR provides good content 365 days a year. Every so often, they run the telethons to fundraise. We tolerate them because we feel a sense of obligation. So what you should do is become a sector expert and promote good content all the time, so that when you want to promote your stuff, people won’t be offended. The community doesn’t tolerate pimping all the time.

[Listen to the full interview for a real-life example on how to market your local business.]

Q: How often should we post?

Guy: I post 10 times a day, 365 days a year. But that’s what works for me. 10 times a day is only too much if you post crap. I don’t post crap. I post between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. PT, the prime time for posting. I use tools for scheduling posts. [To find out which ones, listen in.]

Q: Should we make all our posts public?

Guy: 100% of my posts are completely public. I understand the utility of posting to a specific circle, but I’m trying to post to my followers. Every post goes to my closest 2.8 million friends.

‘WDKK Radio’ Host Darryl Williams: Got a Job—and Couldn’t Ask for a Better One

Whether you’re a soul enthusiast, funk aficionado or R&B devotee, Darryl Williams is the man for you. As host of WDKK Radio, he regularly sits down with legends in each genre for in-depth discussions that cover everything from their creative inspiration to career peaks (and valleys). Darryl’s guests in the past year alone have included Billy Paul, Jeffrey Osborne, The Ohio Players, The Brothers Johnson, Otis Williams of The Temptations, Gil Saunders of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and Kathy Sledge of Sister Sledge. And if it seems that Darryl, who makes his home in Dayton, Ohio—and serves as chief visionary officer for radio-station management company Full Cirkle Media Group there—has an inside track on the music biz, that’s because he does. His dad, Kae Williams Sr., was a broadcasting pioneer who not only worked the Philly radio circuit, but also managed The Silhouettes—and wrote the doo-wop group’s No. 1 hit, Get a Job. And on that note (Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip), we give you this week’s SoundBits subject, Darryl “The Soul Man” Williams…

Give us a 15-second pitch for your show—why should listeners tune in?

WDKK features the absolute finest in legacy artists. Not only do you hear the stories behind these great performers, but you get up close and personal with them, while getting their advice for aspiring talent. Scattered in between are history lessons in music and broadcasting that you just won’t find anywhere else in radio.

Darryl: Keeping the family legacy alive on BTR.

Darryl: Keeping his musical heritage alive on BlogTalkRadio.

Tell us two things listeners would be surprised to learn about you?

(1) I am a second-generation broadcaster. I grew up in and around the music industry, which has given me a unique perspective on the radio and recording industries.

(2) The late Solomon Burke was my godfather. He acknowledged during one my shows that I was the first Internet radio interview he had done—just as my father was the first traditional radio personality to play his records on the air. What an incredible honor. Continue reading

cinch3Mobile podcasting just got a lot easier for Android smartphone users.

Now recording audio on the go with is a snap, to say nothing of sharing it via Facebook, Twitter and CinchCast.com.

But don’t take our word for it. ReadWriteWeb gives the app two thumbs up.

“I marvel, every time, at the fact that I can publish my thoughts so effortlessly in audio out to the world now, from wherever I am,” writes Continue reading
