Share your page with friends, family and current customers. Send them an email with a link to your new page, and ask them to follow and +1 it. Link to your page. Post a link to your page everywhere you have a presence on the web. This might include your website, blog or other social networks. You should also add a link to your page in the footer of your emails—this is a super effective way of getting followers. Get the Google+ badge. The Google+ badge connects your website and your Google+ page, making it easier for customers to follow and +1 your business. After installing the badge on your website people can add your page to their circles directly from your site. The badge also helps Google consolidate +1’s from your site and your page. The more +1’s you get the better! To get your badge all you have to do is add a snippet of code to your website. Click here to install the badge and learn more. Now that your page is properly set up, it’s time to tell your followers and customers about it. Individuals on Google+ must follow a Google+ page before a page can add them to their circles. This means it’s super important to get as many people as possible to follow your page. Once a person follows your page, you can add them to your circles and push your posts to their stream for maximum visibility. Complete these simple steps and you’ll have a following in no time: Helpful Tip: +1 helps people discover relevant content—a website, a Google search result, an ad, your business—from the people they already know and trust. The +1 button appears on Google search, websites and ads. Adding the +1 button to your website lets users recommend your content, knowing that their friends and contacts will see their recommendation when it’s most relevant—in the context of Google search results.

In your store, on fliers, business cards, receipts, shopping bags and everywhere else you do offline advertising for your business. Follow other Google+ pages. A Google+ page can add other pages to circles at anytime—no need for them to add you first. Follow businesses that interest and inspire you and businesses with similar customers to yours. The more you engage with these pages, re-sharing and commenting on posts, the more visibility you will get in the streams of their followers. After all, their followers could be your next customers. Turn on social extensions. If you use AdWords to promote your business, this an essential step. Social Extensions combine +1’s from your ads, Google+ page, and site and increases the likelihood of social annotations showing on your ads. Search ads with social annotations show a 5-10% increase in click-through rate (CTR). By adding the power of recommendations, Google+ can improve the marketing you do with Google. To learn more about turning on Social Extensions click here. Engage your following. Share cool content regularly and show interest in and comment on your followers posts. Commenting on others’ posts will make you visible to the people in their circles, and visibility increases your chances of getting followed.

It sounds obvious, but the key to keeping your following engaged is posting interesting content, regularly. Each time you post it shows up in your followers streams, and keeps your business top of mind. Every time someone reaches your page they should be able to learn something new. We recommend posting at least every other day—and don’t forget weekends! Target your posts. Once people add your business to their circles you can add them to circles of your own, and segment your audience. You can segment by geography, gender, age— whatever is most relevant for your business. This allows you to only deliver content that is interesting to each customer. Try reaching out to your most valued customers with an exclusive event just for them. Use rich media. Rich media such as photos, videos or graphs will catch people’s attention and make them more likely to comment on, share, and learn from your page. Whenever you post, try to add an image or video to illustrate your point. Host Hangouts. A Hangout is a multi-person video chat that lets you chat face-to-face-’to-face’ with up to nine people at a time. Share your expertise, get customer feedback, announce a new product, show behind the scenes footage, and much more—so get creative!

If someone comments on your post, make sure to respond in a timely fashion. Even just a few words are enough to keep the conversation going. And don’t forget to thank your followers for their comments by ‘+mentioning’ them in a post. For example “Thank you +John Smith for your feedback on our new cake! So glad you like it. Let us know how you like this weeks special!” Ask questions. The best way to get lots of people to comment on your posts is by asking questions. When posing a question, it’s important to make it clear that you want to hear from your audience. For example, “What kind of post do you most like seeing on our page? Please tell us!” Poll your audience. Try asking customers and followers to +1 the picture, link, or post they like the best. For example, you could post an album of different product designs then ask, “Which design do like the best? +1 your favorite!” Share insider content. Provide your customers and followers with content they can’t find anywhere else. Announce new products, give a behind-the-scenes tour of your business, and invite people to exclusive events, just for Google+ followers. Run exclusive promotions. Make customers feel like insiders with special discounts. For example, post promotions on Google+ such as, 20% off if you use the code ‘G+Page’ and only have that code available in a post on Google+. Make sure to let your customers know that you are offering exclusive deals on Google+ by posting signs in your store, on your website or by sending an email to existing customers. Create episodic content. Generate sustained interest and keep customers coming back for more. Try hosting weekly Hangouts on a certain topic or hold customer service sessions on a Hangout at a specific time each week, so your customers can pop in to ask questions and get support. Perhaps post a video every few days documenting the creation of a new product. Or run a weekly competition in your store or on your website, then announce the winners on your page. Learn from others. Follow other pages on Google+ that are active and have a large following. See what they are doing and how people respond to their posts. Get ideas and adapt them for your business.

Make all of your posts pubic so the world can see what your business has to say. This makes your content searchable and helps people interested in your content find you. Enlist current customers. Try reaching out to your followers on Google+, other social media, customers on your website or in your store. Explicitly ask them to follow your page and recommend it to their friends and followers. Then encourage them to +1, comment on and reshare your posts. This gives your page visibility in the streams of their followers—your potential new customers. Thank your supporters. Give the followers who recommend you a big ‘thank you,’ publicly in your stream by +mentioning them in a comment or post. For example, “Huge thank you to +John Smith for recommending +King Arther Flour”. Showing your appreciation is great for your brand and encourages people to keep spreading the word about your business. Add the Google+ badge to your site. The Google+ badge connects your website and your Google+ page, making it easier for your customers to follow and +1 your page. After installing the badge on your site people can add your page to their circles directly from your website. The badge also helps Google consolidate +1’s from your site and your Google+ page.

Adding the +1 button to content on your website lets users recommend your content, knowing that their friends and contacts will see their recommendation when it’s most relevant—in the context of Google search results. If a user wants to share your content right away, they can also use the +1 button to add a comment, pick the right circles, and post to Google+ where people can discuss it with friends and reshare it with their own social circles—all without leaving your site. Follow other Google+ Pages. A Google+ page can add other pages to circles at anytime—no need for them to add you first. Follow businesses that interest and inspire you and businesses with similar customers to yours. The more you engage with these pages, re-sharing and commenting on posts, the more visibility you will get in the streams of their followers. After all, their followers could be your next customers. Turn on social extensions. If you use AdWords to promote your business, this an essential step. Social Extensions combine +1’s from your ads, Google+ page, and site and increases the likelihood of social annotations showing on your ads. Search ads with personal recommendations show a 5-10% increase in click-through rate (CTR). By adding the power of recommendations, Google+ can improve the marketing you do with Google. To learn more about turning on Social Extensions click here. Add your page to AdWords Sitelinks. The sitelinks ad extension lets you show links to pages beneath the text of your ads. You should add your Google+ page as a sitelink so when people search for your business, your page will be more visible. You can activate sitelinks by logging into your AdWords account, selecting campaign settings, then clicking the “Ad extensions” tab. Then edit your link text and URLs to include your page.

Make sure all of your employees or colleagues have set up a personal Google+ profile so that you can connect, share and get closer to your team. For more information on setting up a personal profile click here. Share responsibility. Add colleagues as managers of your new page so they can post and share on behalf of your business too. To add managers click on the page name in the very top right corner of the screen. Then click “Managers” and enter the email addresses of the people you would like to contribute to the page.

With circles, you can share some things with colleagues, others with partners, and whatever you like with close friends and family. Create a circle dedicated to your internal team so that you can easily share work-related content with them. Pop into meetings. Whether you’re at home, the office or even the beach, Hangouts let you meet with your team any time from any where. You can share screens or open a new or existing Google doc and work on it together-all in real time. Train your team. Use angouts to hold training sessions for team members in different locations. Think of it as a remote classroom. You can also record these Hangouts and re-share the videos so colleagues that weren’t able to make it can learn from the session at their own convenience.
