Monetizing Googleplus Hangoutsonair

by Saul Fleischman on October 31, 2012

Featuring the Chris Lang video, “How To Monetize Google Plus Hangouts On Air

Googleplus Hangouts On Air are a suite of powerful interview and content creation tools. But no one wants to watch your hour long video that is often the result of an authority interview.  Here is how to cure that problem the fast and easy way:

Todd Hartley, CEO of, shows us in this short video how to use Google+ Hangouts to create great question and answer driven videos that lead to exactly the question they are looking for.

Short, concise and to the point videos do very well on YouTube and YouTube is your back end to Hangouts On Air.
Watch this 3 minute video from a YouTube pro that has generated almost 6 million views on his channel showing us how it’s done.

Be sure to get your Hangoutonair seen – even by those unconnected to you (yet).

Put Hashtags to work.  But what do you do if you only know your topics, not your hashtags?

Don’t already know which hashtags to engage on?  And before you “create” one, you now want to see if and how it might already be in play?

Where do you go to learn which hashtags are best for the social networks and content sharing sites you use for business? is a social media tool for learning about hashtags related to a word, hashtag or text string and provides insights into these hashtags for numerous social networks and content sharing platforms.  RiteTag is still in private beta, but already filling a library of free reports with rich details on numerous useful hashtags.  RiteTag reports contain data on

  • when hashtags related to your searched term have been used
  • which accounts are using each related hashtag (and how many times)
  • content that contains a tag related to a report (query-based).

      Many thanks, @011Bojan:disqus. Far less interaction, since I can’t really build out RiteTag and spend the day commenting on blogs, but, keeping it up, yes, with guest articles coming… One just yesterday, in fact. And I do get good sharing, mainly to Twitter, SU, and G+.

        Your Social Media presence is awesome. I believe you just aren’t blessed by Google, hence you’ve got less traffic than I get.
