Our very own Google launched its own social networking site called as Google+. Google+ is an accumulation of all the services that we already use in all other social networking sites. Although Google+ is presently not as popular as Facebook or Twitter, but still it has its own charm and effect. Google+ helps to make services better and make it available to us in an easier and a funnier manner. In this post, I will tell you how you can expand your Google plus social network. Let’s check out some basic tips on how we can do it.
Complete your Profile:
The most important thing that you should do to expand your Google plus social network is to complete your profile page. This is the first introductory thing that others will see, others refers to those who wish to become a part of their network. Fill your profile with complete information so that people can know you better. It’s not the information that is important, rather how you present it is important. Add an impressive profile pic to increase the level of personalization. Don’t bore people with some unwanted information. Keep it attractive and engaging. Inclusion of photos can help you do so. From a business point of view, convey your company’s information as much as you can. Tell them that you offer a product/service.
Share beautiful content:
Sharing interesting and amazing content is one of the easiest ways to expand your Google plus social network. Share videos, pictures, infographics, animated images etc. with your followers. It’s not very important to share only unique content, you can re-share some posts and content that you think will interests your followers. Make sure you always share content that belongs to your niche. Business experts can share informative and valuable blog posts that relates to their offered products. This practice not only expands your network but also, convinces your followers to buy your product.
Circles are similar to groups or followers in Facebook and Twitter respectively. Do not expect people to just circle you. Instead, circle others. This will make your presence stronger and will help you to connect with more and more people. Well, it is not mandatory to connect with each and every other person. Circle people that either belongs to your niche target market or who themselves are followed by people in your target market.
Ask friends to re-share:
It is a good practice to ask your friends to re-share your post. But make sure that the content in that post is worth re-sharing. Do not ask them to re-share a picnic pic. Provide informatory content to attract others. Ask your friends to re-share those. Your task does not end here. Appreciate them by writing a “Thank you” comment. Such kinds of gestures create a good impression.
Popularize your Google+ profile:
Move outside your Google+ profile and popularize it on other social networks, on your blogs, and on your company website. Google+ buttons are similar to Facebook and Twitter buttons and you can install them as you have installed others. Inform your friends on other social networks about your Google+ profile. You can also embed this button in your e-mail signatures. It helps people to easily add you in their circle and vice-versa.
Simply adding people to your circle is not enough. You have to keep them interested so that they come back again and again to your profile page. The best way to keep them engaged is by getting into discussions with them. Take up some serious matters, preferably matters/problems in your niche market. Discuss it with your circle members. You should not only enhance the richness of your circle, but also find people who share common interests with you.
I would say this is the toughest and the easiest way to get involved in others’ circle. Help out people and people will repay their debt by calling you into their circles. By helping your circles, you are letting know others know about your capability. Believe me, people want help and they want it in every aspect. Getting a tag as a “helper” or a “problem solver” will definitely increase your social media presence.
Allow people to comment:
Always allow people to comment on the posts you share. This is because their comments would be visible to the members in their circles. As such more and more people will come to know of you and depending on the content you share, they can add you in their circles.
These were some of the basic tips to enhance your Google plus social network.. Follow them and enhance your Google+ visibility.
