Mastering Google Hangouts with Renae Christine


We’re delighted to share this exclusive vlog post with our readers! 

Join us for Renae’s webinar at Social Buzz U on Thursday, February 27, 2014! Details are here… and it’s free!

Main points from the video

1. Free traffic

Your video is not only shown on the main on air Google hangouts page.

Your video’s get serious SEO juice on both the Google search engine and YouTube for the keywords you put into the title of your Google hangout.

This is a temporary jump that lasts for about a day so the more Google hangouts the better.

2. The “smooth” setting

This one setting makes everyone instantly look 20 years younger.

It can build your self confidence instantly.

So no more excuses about not going live.

3. No editing

Google does all the work for you.

So you can have guests, do product reviews or live tutorials or even chat live with your audience.

Your audience won’t mind any tiny mistakes and blunders because they appreciate the fact that it’s live and they can interact with you.

4. Download your hangout as an mp4 after processing.

Holy downloads Batman!

Yes, simply go to your video manager then click the arrow next to the live episode you want to download

5. Add your Google hangout to an itunes podcast effortlessly.

All you need to do this is the mp4 you just finished downloading, a wordpress blog and the wordpress plugin called powerpress.

6. Use Google hangouts to host your next public webinar

You no longer need to have registrations for your webinars and you can now host your webinars right inside your website or blog or even an email … or Facebook page … or Twitter … or … wherever.

Your Google Hangout On Air can be embedded anywhere that accepts html.

I’ll show you how to do this later.

7. Use Google hangouts to host your next private webinar

But wait Renae, I thought we could only add a limited number of people to a private webinar via Google hangouts?


Simply create a separate YouTube channel that no one knows about, broadcast the webinar from that channel but embed it into whatever website, blog post you like and give people the appropriate passcodes for that site.

Sound complicated?

Then join me at my Social Buzz Club webinar called Mastering Google Hangouts where we will go through all the complicatedness of Google Hangouts and dumb it down making it as easy as eating strawberry rhubarb pie

I love strawberry rhubarb pie

Thumbs up this video if you love pie!

Remember… The Social Buzz Club Webinar will air on February 27th at 11 am pst. Register NOW to attend free!

Love you all.

Peace out yo!
