Many things have changed in the last 12-24 months. Google is extending and has widely extended its services.
As many news already have summarized: 2010 will be the year of Google.
So why shouldn’t we create a new job profile, a new job specialization?
Somebody, who knows all the services and solutions of Google and thus can advice and implement in this broad area of Google. Starting with some kind of SEO, selecting useful Google Apps, building an development environment with the Google App Engine, developing some apps, introducing ChromeOS, Chrome, Mail, Calendar, choosing and selecting helpful Chrome extensions, extending company channels with Android and so on and so forth…
Much more than SEO with Google was in the past – comparable to the SAP consultant or other specialists in similar tech areas.
And if you believe such a new job profile makes sense, then you should also think about professional Google education and consultancies.
I believe, especially for small and mid size companies, it might be an interesting model to rely on the many (cloud) services and solutions of Google and these, of course, need advice how to profit from these.
And last but not least: Google Consultant somehow sounds sexy…
