I am a Google+ user and I love it! With the many social platforms online, G+ is my number one choice. Why? Well, apart from it being a FREE tool, it is so simple to use, and you have the ability to connect to a huge number of people around the world. But there’s more…
Here are more reasons why I love Google+:
It is a Learning Tool
If you are using G+, you will agree with me that this social platform provides a wealth of knowledge and information to its users every single day. Being on the right circle is like being enrolled in a veritable learning institution.
Easy to Find Connections of the Same Interest
True, G+ is interest-driven network. Hence building a relationship with other users is really effortless. Since you already belong to a group or a community who share the same interest, you will find this platform fun and a lucrative place to promote your niche.
Build Followers Fast
Since you can easily connect to thousands of people around the globe of the same interest, it wouldn’t be impossible for “Google Plussers” to easily build followers. More so, they have over 300 million active users and very engaging and dedicated audience.
Varied Formatting Options
Formatting options are varied. Therefore, you can easily add your own style into your post. Not only that, you can also write longer posts compared to other social platforms. This feature can be very helpful if you want to create posts that are valuable to your audience.
There are actually more features you’ll love about Google+ and not just what I have mentioned above. You will learn about it once you give it a try. For the meantime, let me show you how you can get started or how you can improve your existing account.
5 Easy Steps on How to Get Started with Google+:
1. Creating Your G+ Profile
Make sure that you have uploaded a nice photo of yourself or a logo of your business. Your header is also as important as your photo, so create attention-grabbing header. Most of all, provide as much information about yourself or business. Don’t forget to go to the “Contributor’s” area to add important links like your blog. Adding your blog to the contributor’s area will automatically link your profile to it.
2. Start Circling People
If you are signed in to your Gmail account, you will notice that Google+ provides suggestions of people based on your profile, friends and location. Start from there and then move to a wider audience later on.
3. Join Communities of Your Interest
Join communities that you will find enjoyable and fun. This will stimulate your interest to be active and interactive with other Google users.
4. Use #Hashtags
Hashtags are as effective in G+ as they are in Twitter, so don’t ignore the importance of using it on your posts.
5. Use Events and Hangouts Features
Using the Events and Hangouts feature of Google+ let you promote just about anything or get connected with your contacts anywhere and anytime, hassle-free. And since most users of G+ have also linked their profile to their mobile phones, sending event invites to them will instantly go directly to their phone agenda. You can even use this feature as an instant messaging app. How cool is that, right?
Remember Google + is FREE and 100% public, so creating your profile using this particular platform is a win-win for you. You have nothing to lose but more to gain, so why not give it a try!
