The What-NOT-To-Do List for Google+

Small Business folks frequently ask how they can use Google+ to promote their business. This is a long term proposition that does not involve any straight lines.

One of the most important things to remember is to be a good G+ citizen, so that people come to like you and appreciate and trust what you have to say. Being aware of the pitfalls that can put you on the "naughty" (or ignored ) list instead of the 'nice" one is a big help.

+Mike Allton of the +The Social Media Hat presents some of the common mistakes people make on G+ - and how to avoid them.

Here are some of my favorites...

1. Sharing links without any commentary - This is one of my biggest pet peeves.  Whether it's your own post or someone else's, take the time to tell enough about it to make someone want to read it. (KInda like I'm doing now :)

2. Never [or rarely] sharing other people's posts. - You'd be amazed how promoting others reflects well on you.

3. Forgetting to Plus mention people - Either to give them credit as the originator of a post, to thank them for sharing it previously, or to leave a comment. It's  much appreciated and also creates a notification that they receive so they know you shared something of theirs or directed a comment to them.

Read the full post to learn Mike's  6 other no-no's ,  along with the recommended practices to ensure you're a good G+ citizen.  Keeping courtesy in mind makes a big difference!

Thank you +Mike Allton for these timely reminders.
