Get More People to Circle You on Google+

Want more people to connect with you on Google+? Here are some suggestions. (Okay, to be honest, I stole these from my blog post about how to get Twitter followers, but guess what? They apply HERE!)

Ways to Get More Followers

1.) Post unique information and insights 3-4 times a day.
2.) Comment on other people’s posts with relevant and non-spammy replies.
3.) Occasionally post something way off-topic (for whatever reason, this works marvelously).
4.) Reply 10-20 times a day (maybe more).
5.) Look for great weekly chats or hangouts.
6.) Have a great avatar photo (not an icon or logo), and a succinct bio.
7.) Search Google+ for people talking about your passions, and connect with those people.
8.) Devote 20 minutes a day (maybe more) to sharing up-and-coming people’s interesting posts.
9.) Consider hosting a Hangout yourself.

Things to do Less or Not at All

1.) Never once mention (or think about, or worry about) your Klout score.
2.) Never once think much about following “influencers.” Follow people who seem interesting.
3.) Don’t worry about resharing the big guys. They have plenty of exposure already.
4.) Don’t buy into software or other inorganic methods to help you follow more people.
5.) Don’t waste two to four hours a day on Google+ and call it lead generation. It’s the same as watching soap operas.
6.) Don’t assume no response means anything.
7.) Don’t worry about who doesn’t follow you. Worry about creating interesting value.
8.) Don’t tell people they’re doing it wrong. (Get the irony here?)
See? Most of that applies to Google+, doesn't it?
