An Introduction to Dr. Charles Payet and Google+
I started on Google+ in the beta stage and was one of the first dentists to have a Brand Page. Google+ is my favorite social media platform, and during this Google Hangout On Air Series we will be covering the basics of how Google+ is different from other platforms, and why you need to be different here and what can you expect for your practice, and over what time. Through this series, my goal is to give the viewers and fellow Dentists a deeper understanding of Google+ and a solid foundation to get started on the platform.
Each week will feature a different Google+ expert [Sept 6th – Nov 8th]. For the full line up, please go here ➤http://bit.ly/GPlusLineUp
