post to G+ and YouTube, and I don't have a website. With my global following, I simply cannot follow the chart's suggested time to post on this platform. For example, I recently posted at 11:00pm EST and the post made it to the Hot List, while I was asleep.
For me, the key to being successful on here is to post creative, compelling and relevant content
. In addition, develop some sort of niche 'campaign' (in my case, it was a #healthyeating
8 week campaign) and get users to opt-in by using a permission-based marketing strategy.
Once folks have opted in, place them in a special circle, let them know that the circle will be re-shared publicly and the content you'll be posting will be going to them, as well as public, so they can feel free to reshare the content. This works because they get people following them when the circle gets shared and my content gets shared by the people in that circle; thereby quickly making it to the Hot List. This is a win-win
formula for all involved.
So you need to put in a little more work to get and reach your audience, than just finding the right time to post. Hope this helps:)
