Note from Denise: I LOVE Google+ and I’ve met many smart, generous people on the social network. Stephan Hovnanian is one of them. I’ve hosted three Hangouts with Stephan to introduce you to his brilliance and to the power of the G+ community.  After you study Stephan’s infographic, scroll to the end to learn about two training webinars I’m presenting to help you get started on Google Plus.

UPDATE: Stephan has published several Kindle ebooks on Google+ Pro Tips, including one on How to Get More Visibility on Google+.

Stephan HovnanianTen Visibility Tips for Google Plus

You joined Google+ because everyone is telling you what an amazing platform it is to make an impact, to stand out and be recognized for the authority you have (or are building) in your field of expertise.

So you’ve filled out your profile and are rocking a killer cover photo, now what? Google+ will suggest people for you to follow, maybe you added some, joined a few communities, and started posting links to your blog. Is it working? Are you getting people to notice you?
If not, don’t fret. One of the hardest parts with any new platform (although everybody likes to point the finger at Google+) is finding the right circles to hang out in. Getting the right mix of people to notice you, take you under their wing, and start to recognize you for the authority that you are. So, here is an infographic that gives you 10 ways to boost your visibility on Google+ and get the attention you deserve.
 (Aside: it’s kind of interesting how “finding the right circles to hang out in” comes so naturally, and yet Google+ uses both Circles and Hangouts as features of their platform. That is definitely not by chance)

10 Tips for More Visibility on Google+
  1. Understand Your Audience Reach
  2. “Hand out” your hovercard (it shows up more than you think)
  3. Engage in Comments first
  4. Reimagine your content (here are 12 creative ways)
  5. Use Social Listening techniques (here’s a real life example)
  6. Use citations and attribution (it’s like a blog trackback)
  7. Hop into “What’s Hot”
  8. Ask Questions
  9. Be Yourself! Be Genuine! (Jaana Nyström says it best here)
  10. Take time to understand the platform
Using these techniques will help you grow the reach of your profile. Be sure to put a focus on post quality so people always expect your name (and comments) to be synonymous with excellence. It’s a tall order, and of course you can let your hair down once in a while, but you came to Google+ to use it as a platform to make an impact, and these tips will help you on your way.
