How to Appreciate and Engage with Your Google+ Audience
So, you have started getting +1’s and shares on Google+, but there is still something you need to being doing to engage with your new audience on Google+
. Here are my favorite tips for keeping (and growing) your followers by engaging and interacting with them!
Now that you are getting comments, shares, mentions, and +1’s, you need to respond to them so people know that you are paying attention and care about what others have to say! Replying to people also shows that you appreciate them reading your content and following you, which encourages great relationships. But how do you do this?1. Comment back.
When you receive a comment on one of your posts, comment back! Make sure that you mention the person by name so that they get a notification and they can see they have been mentioned. Acknowledge what they are saying, answer questions, and thank them for reading!2. Spark conversation.
Furthermore, don’t let the comments section be just a place for your readers to interact. Join in the conversation or discussion if there is one, and if there isn’t, spark one by asking a question or agreeing/disagreeing. Don’t be afraid to make your point known, but do it politely. 3. Share your knowledge.
If someone brings up something in the comments section that you have knowledge on or pertains to your field of expertise, speak up. Share links, facts, and wisdom with your followers. They will realize that you care about helping and giving information beyond just the formal content and posts you publish.4. Pay a favor.
As you keep posting content on Google+, you may notice that some of the same people consistently comment or share your content. This probably means that they are fans of your work, and that’s awesome! Take 5 minutes out of your day and check out their profile to see if they have any content that you may like, or you may even want to add them to your circle. This small favor goes a long way and shows people that you are willing to create relationships and partnerships on Google+
