Tip 4/50: Share Your Google+ Posts on Other Social Media
If you are struggling to get the engagement you wish for by sharing publicly or to your circles, cast the net further and tap into your existing audiences.

For many of you, Google+ won't be the first social media platform you have used and therefore you will have friends, connections and followers on the likes of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc. Did you know there is a simple way to tap into these existing audiences and share your Google+ content which could get you more +1s, comments etc?

Simply place your cursor over the top-right corner of the post you wish to share, click the downward arrow and from the drop-down list click "Link to post". This will give you a unique URL which you can post on Facebook/Twitter etc.

In addition to getting you more visibility on your posts through cross-pollination, it will help grow the G+ community by introducing more outsiders (on other social media) to this brilliant platform...which can only be a good thing right?

NOTE Non-Google+'ers will be able to see posts you share on ther social networks as long as they are public.

► You can set up automated re-posting to your favourite social media profiles using tools such as +IFTTT or +Friends+Me which can save you a tonne of time (just beware sometimes the re-postings won't render as perfectly as if you did them manually). 
► You can also embed posts on webpages such as your blog for extra exposure and engagement.
► Don't forget to say why you are sharing the Google+ link in your post, perhaps in conjunction with an inviting call to action 
► *BEWARE* this will only work for public posts. Any posts shared to circles or individuals cannot be seen by outsiders.
