10 Ways to Share a Post with Gusto within the +Social Media 4 Good Community on Google+

To improve the sharing quality of your content within any Google+ Community, please consider these tips to ensure that your post achieves its intended longevity.

1. Complete Your Profile: I know it's fundamental, but plussers prefer to engage with real people and pages. Not a blue head. Take the time to fill in your profile details. After all, this is a networking community too.

2. Relevance Is Important: Carefully consider if your post is relevant to the Community. Sharing off-topic posts unrelated to the nature of the community will surely get your post removed. Repeat offenses will most likely get you banned.

3. Use Google+ Formatting: You can bold your magnetic post title and italicize any areas of emphasis as you write 2 to 4 sentences about your post. https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1053549?hl=en

4. Provide a Brief Narrative: Explain the nature of your link and what people can expect to find when they click. Your post should stimulate dialog and interaction within the Community.

5. Categorize Your Post: Be sure to share your post within the appropriate sub-category to help keep the Community organized. It makes it easier for new and existing members to find the information they need.

6. Credit Your Sources: When sharing other people's content, give credit where it is due by +mentioning the creator or h/t the +person or +page who you originally discovered it through. It's only right.

7. Use Full URLs: Refrain from using link shortening services to maintain the authenticity of what you are sharing. In most cases, this allows members to determine if your link is true and correct to the post description.

8. Be Responsive: Check your notification settings to ensure that you will receive an alert upon engagement from the posts you share. When people engage your content, it's important to answer any questions, provide additional reference, or simply say 'Thank you'.

9. Use Hashtags: Google+ does a pretty good job of establishing hashtags for your post, depending on your settings. Feel free to use a couple of hashtag related to your content at the very bottom of your post.

10. Be An Amazing Social Citizen: Engage with other members by plussing, sharing, and commenting on their content. This will increase your likelihood to connect with new plussers, establish yourself as a SME, and cause reciprocity upon your posts.

I recently wrote a journey article on Google+ for Your Nonprofit Marketing Mix: Profile, Page, & Community which applies to anyone across this vibrant social platform. Feel free to check it out for additional insights.

I hope you found this post informative and inspiring. Did I miss anything? Which points stand out for you the most?

Do You Want To Drive More Traffic To Your Website From Pinterest?

Pinterest has proven to be an excellent tool for driving traffic to your blog or website but unfortunately many users don’t yet know how to properly apply SEO tactics within Pinterest to drive the large volumes of traffic they are looking for.

Isn’t the whole point of having a website to attract visitors?

Prospective customers find you during their searches online by typing keywords into their search bars.  You want your Pinterest page and or web page to come up on the first page of the organic search results.

According to Michael Lopp, head of engineering at Pinterest, claimed that the company was looking to redefine how consumers find goods online, according to Business Insider. “If you don’t have a keyword though, you’re out of luck and if you want to browse, search engines are the wrong tool. We call this the discovery problem. There’s a big opportunity to help people browse and discover ideas and projects before they’re ready for search phase.”

Lopp stated that there are 30 billion pinned posts on the social network with that number growing by an average of 25 per cent every quarter. With those kinds of numbers you want to do all you can as a business to rank high on Pinterest’s search engine.
Visual content marketing expert outlines 5 areas on a Pinterest page where you can apply your keywords and SEO tactics. The 5 areas are:

“Epicness” means you get to immerse into a culture of awesome practices, diverse personalities, random acts of coolness, and experiencing camaraderie at its finest. Altruistic as it sounds but the growing population testifies that the positive culture is generating strong values of belief, passion, people, innovation and integrity.
