"It fits with the lifestyle of our clients. They can stay in their offices or conference rooms and share a virtual wall with our team" says Brian Mattocks, founder and principal business coach at RentASmartGuy.com. Mattocks adds, "We also get access to clients that aren't located near our home office, and those who have travel restrictions and disabilities. This lets us provide great results for clients locally and internationally."
Google+'s features include a service called hangouts. Hangouts let multiple people share video and voice feeds. RentASmartGuy.com uses hangouts to deliver coaching services. "We also are extending the hangouts by having regularly scheduled co-working sessions" says Mattocks. "Co-working let's people have the experience of working with colleagues without sharing the same office."
The growth of social media tools is a boon to businesses like RentASmartGuy.com that can see the value and advantages they bring to the market. Services like Google+ and hangouts create a space for businesses to both create and receive value.
