You’d just have to check out the tweets being sent out this week about Google+ Pages to see how companies are already announcing their presence on this new platform, as well as useful tips & tricks for getting started with G+ pages, etc, etc.

I got an email this evening which announced the roll out of Google+ badges to get your audience following you on Google+.

Today, we’re beginning our roll out of Google+ badges by making them available to you, the Google+ Platform Preview Group. Featuring both an ‘add to circle’ and a ‘+1’ button, the Google + badge helps you grow your audience on Google+ while also showing more recommendations on Google+.
