Tip 1/50: Create A Killer Hovercard
The first tip of the series is an important one so spend some time playing around and getting it right

A hovercard is the little box that pops up when you place your cursor over someone's name which shows you a little bit more about them and their personality.

It is from this hovercard that many people decide whether to follow that person or not which is why it is so important to craft a compelling, interesting and intriguing hovercard and "sell" yourself as someone worth following.

How? Your hovercard contains 6 elements of which, 3 can be edited and optimised including:

► Cover Photo - show creativity and personality
► Profile Image - use a real photo, not an avatar
► Tagline - in around 45-55 characters, what should people expect from you and your posts?

It is also recommended to include your location (which might entice users nearby to follow you) and your current place of work/education. Both of these can be edited in your "About" section (details from +Virante Marketing here: http://bit.ly/KfGqwv).

This tip was inspired by +Stephan Hovnanian's excellently thorough post found here: http://bit.ly/1bxtnvQ
