With such a high volume of users and traffic, Google+ and Google in its entirety have proven time and time again that it is the future of social. For those of us in the United States, we have a significant advantage. When using Google, we are putting ourselves in the majority with having roughly 65% of all the United States queries.
This makes Google an essential online tool, if not the most important. Here are three steps to get you started towards the future of social. 🙂
1) Set up your Google + profile
Set up your profile with all portions of your online profile completed. With starting your page, you get access to YouTube, Google Analytics, Gmail, and more. Once you have set up your profile, make sure you have appealing photos and a biography that draws the potential follower in. Next is the content.
2) Post Often.
It is recommended to post an average of one to two times per day to stay fresh in your followers’ minds. Any more than that can become somewhat bothersome and will cause some people to unfollow or remove you from their circles. Media-rich content such as images, charts, and videos attract far more attention and interaction than plain text-based content and posts. Remember, be active and be appealing. That is the key.
3) Find a quality audience
If you can build an influential audience of your own, or if significant influencers in your market space +1 or share the content, this can get you a lot of exposure to your target market.
A significant part of Google+ is that it provides users with the accessibility to assemble an audience from all over the world that is not on other platforms. To execute this, you should search and join a list of other successful Google Plus pages in your community. To connect with them, find those pages and view the users who are commenting on and sharing the page’s posts. Connect with those folks, and you’re on the right track to gaining a more significant “circle” in your community.
