I’ve been on Google Plus for a while now. And to be honest I haven’t been that active on it. My social network of choice is Twitter. I did however finally have a chance to check out the Hangouts feature yesterday while having a conference video chat with mortgage industry associates from across Canada that I had only previously had conversations with over Twitter or voice calls.
Google Hangouts finally allowed me to put a face and voice to the Twitter names of Jackson Middleton (@KiltedBroker), Rob Campbell (@therobcampbell) and Mike Cameron (@axiommike). It was an insightful discussion on our industry, marketing and social media with mortgage brokers across Canada and it felt as if we were almost in the same room.
There is always the talk of ROI with Social Media and just having the opportunity to talk for an hour with these three insightful brokers was a great return on investment in my eyes.
Google Hangouts really proved to be a simple and easy way to connect and collaborate in real time and I look forward to more with other industry peers.
