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?

Millennials reported that user-generated content (UGC) is 20% more influential on their purchase decisions than other media. 
Organizations are having their Social Moment and realizing that the reach, engagement and influence of their employees is crucial to the future success of the organization, not simply the social business strategy.Discovering social value in employee relationships requires an investment in the skills, knowledge and understanding of the employees. The investment must also be authentic, transparent and personal with no expectation of reciprocity.Som...

URL shorteners don't save space on #Twitter. Yet another myth busted!

Thx to +Adrian Jock
 
Twitter Myth: URL Shorteners Save Space - Busted!

A shorter URL has fewer characters than a longer one. So it makes sense to say that URL shorteners save space. But is that true when we move from theory to practice?

Social media myth: one of the reasons to shorten a URL is to avoid exceeding Twitter's 140 character limit. Busted!

If you are like me, attending conferences can be hit or miss. As much as I'd like to attend, sometimes life gets in the way. Whether it's lack of money or lack of time, there are times when you just can't go.

But, should that prevent you from gaining value? No.

Check out this week's podcast episode/blog post and discover how you can still enjoy a conference even if you aren't there in person.

I run a blog called Do All The Good You Can. This blog focuses on how to make the world a better place. I write posts on nonprofits, social issues and concerns (e.g. cancer, homelessness, recycling), random acts of kindness, to name a few things. I have created a Random Acts of Kindness “event”. For the week of May 11- May 17th, I will perform as many random acts of kindness as I can. I am encouraging others to join me in this week of positivity.

The charity is hoping to tap into people’s conscience and allow them to get things off their chest. It asks people to post a confession of something they haven’t told their mum along with the hashtag #Sozmum.
