Different people take advantage of social networking sites for different reasons. Some use them for staying connected with family and friends, while others make them part of their marketing. These days, a new one called Google Plus is on the rise. Once you already got an account there, the next step would be getting more followers on Google Plus.
One of the easiest ways to do so is by going to your homepage and clicking “Circle” located on the top section. Click “Find and Invite” and a listing of your Gmail contacts will be displayed. There are a few circles below the list. All you got to do is drop the person to the circle of your choice.
You may also create new circles other than “Friends”, “Family”, “Acquaintances” and “Following” that are already there. Simply drag a friend to the leftmost circle that’s gray in color. Click “Add a new person” option if you wish to add people who are not on the list.
Allow your friends from your other social networking accounts that you have just set up yours on this new one. Let everyone know about it and place a link to your profile. Those who also got accounts there may click on it so they may add you to their circle. Some of your contacts may not be aware of it yet. Simply tell them that anyone who wants to get an invitation simply have to send you their e-mail addresses via private messaging.
When a popular person comes up with an account, add him or her to your circle. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pop artist, movie actor, poet, painter or a pro-athlete. Be an active participant and engage in discussions on the celebrity’s account. There are also people there looking for more followers, so chances are they’ll add you when they run into your posts.
Come up with attention-grabbing posts – original quotes, snapshots you have taken yourself, doodles, video clips, etc. Make sure it’s something worth sharing to others. Also, make sure that you select “Public” or “Extended Circles” when posting them so the friends of your friends will also be seeing your posts. If your posts are really good enough, it can go viral and win you tons of instant followers.
Making sensible comments on the post of your friends also helps in getting more followers on Google Plus. When taking part in discussions, see to it that you leave comments that make sense. When friends of friends run into your comments, they may get interested with you. This will lead to viewing of your profile and adding you to their circles.
