Oh, you mean we have to be social?
Welcome to your fourth bonus tip from the Free Guide for Google+ Page Managers.
How do you like these so far? Are they helpful? Hit reply and let me know.
Engagement is one of the keys to growing your follower base and gaining traction on your own Google+ Page. Not just engaging with the comments on your own posts, though; no, you have to get out there and stick your nose into lots of conversations, which gets you noticed, and eventually followed. Do this every day:
Search a relevant hashtag and leave at least 5 comments on other people’s posts. Try to go beyond “great job!” and add some insights, or ask questions.
Go into your communities and welcome newcomers on their introduction posts. Ask a question, learn more about them.
Respond to all mentions. All of them. Yes, all of them.
Pro tip: Create a private message you can use to reach out to new people who follow you, or who pique your interest through engagement on your posts or others. Something to get the conversation started, not a pitch. Here’s the best way to write a private post.
I have a third routine coming your way next, this time about circle management. Stay tuned, and let me know if you have any questions!
