Guy Kawasaki is the co-founder of and a founding partner at Garage Technology Ventures. He is also the author of ten books including Enchantment, Rules for Revolutionaries and the just-released What the Plus!: Google+ for the Rest of Us (affiliate links).

Guy’s new book is packed with tips on how to use Google+ to build your brand and drive visits to your website. It includes information on how to get started, how to master Circles, how to achieve trustworthiness and how to get more followers.

I sat down with Guy to discuss some of the tools and techniques he discusses in the book. Appropriately, we conducted the interview via a Google+ Hangout, which enable us to chat from our offices respectively located in Silicon Valley and Atlanta.

Guy gives us some insights on using Google+ which can be seen in the interview below (or on the 60 Second Marketer YouTube Channel). We concluded the interview with Guy’s suggestions for three Chrome Extensions that you can use to supercharge your Google+ experience:

  1. Do Share: Which allows Google+ users to schedule their posts in advance;
  2. Nuke Comments: Which gives you the ability to block and delete certain followers;
  3. Replies and More: Which gives you easy ways to reply to posts and mute others.

Guy offers plenty of other tips in his interview below. Be sure to check it out. And come back soon for more interviews with other social and mobile thought-leaders.
