Tips for New Members:Become familiar with the Community Guidelines policy.smhangout.com
We’ve outlined some simple rules to maintain a safe space to connect with other businesses. We didn't come to these rules on a whim. These are after using Google+ for nearly five years, while running these communities for two. The rules are based on marketing best practices - to help our community have the highest level quality while also helping you maximize your own engagement. Take the posting lessons you learn from the guidelines here - and apply them to your posts in other places - and you'll see engagement steadily increase.Check in regularly and share valuable content when needed.
Sharing of course is not the best way to engage members here. There are great discussions popping up in the community every day. Stop by regularly, chime in, and engage with other members' discussions in order to build trust and authority on a subject.Search or Browse for posts that interest you.
Use the community search feature on your computers and larger tablets (for now, browse categories using your iPhone or Android Google+ app). There are many posts from the past that will aid you in your marketing strategy greatly. Before you post - be sure to search or browse the community to be sure no one has posted something similar.Don't be discouraged if your post is moderated.
There are many reasons a post may be moderated, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to contact us http://smhangout.com/contact
- We will be happy to explain. In order to expedite your help request - be sure to include a direct link to the post in question (if you delete it, we can't tell you why).
Posts that are moderated are not always meant as a judgement call on the quality of the content being linked, but due to either lack of interaction with the rest of the community, a poorly described or framed Google+ post, or because we have had a large number of posts on the same subject in a short period of time. Again, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us (or me, personally).Follow and Join Our Tribe!http://triberr.com/pages/tribe-overview.php?tid=53077Additional +Social Media Strategy Community Links:Google Plus Page: plus.smhangout.comCommunity Board on Pinterest: pinterest.smhangout.com@smhangouts on Twitter: twitter.smhangout.comFacebook Page: facebook.smhangout.com+Social Media Hangout HOA Series: episodes.smhangout.comon YouTube: youtube.smhangout.comon iTunes: itunes.smhangout.comon SoundCloud: soundcloud.smhangout.comon Stitcher: stitcher.smhangout.comon IMDB: imdb.smhangout.comHave you watched +Social Media Hangout before?
