The ever growing site is showing tremendous potential and this means you should understand that cashing in on trends early is one of the best way to make money online.
Making money on Google+ is very similar to making money on Facebook and Twitter but at the same time there is also going to be a difference. While Google+ is considered as another Social network site, the way you approach it may differ because of the innovations that Google+ is making. Read on to find out more on how you can use Google+ for the benefits of your online business.
Sign up to Google+
It used to be a headache to get in Google+ because initially when Google+ was just launched, you have to get an invite to get in. Google wanted it to be an exclusive club so they were controlling the people who got in. However, Google has finally decided to open it up to the public. All you need to do is go to their rain website and sign up.
Choosing a Name.
A great way to choose a name is to choose a first and last name that is closely related to your niche. For example, if you are in the Forex niche, you can choose a catchy name that people would be interested in such as Forex Tips or Forex Expert to help you get the attention that you want. If you wish to use your own name (branding yourself), that is fine as well.
A Picture tells a thousand words. And in the digital world, a picture is all you have to help you connect and give your users a good first impression. Hence choose a relevant picture that can impact viewers emotionally. Be sure not to place a picture of an affiliate product or a product cover because this might turn people off thinking that you are trying to sell them something. As with most social marketing strategies, you should not be trying to hard sell to your audience up front. Instead, you should be trying to get connected you your target market and get them to trust you first before trying to monetize the traffic.
Your pictures should look professional and you should always try to put a picture with captions on it because captions get read 4 times more than other normal texts. Hence it is time to bring out that picture editor, polish it and start editing your images for a better attention grabbing image.
Search for Google+ profiles related to your niche.
This is where you start getting followers. In many ways, getting followers on social networks is like building a list. Although followers are not as valuable as a list, you can turn your followers into your subscribers. From there monetizing your list should be easy.
In Google+ you have to follow and wait to be followed. It is a lot like twitter so be sure to follow people who might have a keen interest in what you have to offer. This is where you start your targeting so make sure to do your homework and understand who your target market is. Expert claims that the typical rate of people following you back is around 20% give and take so if you want 100 followers you should expect to follow around 500 people before you can see results. That might seem like a lot at first but do not worry because it will get easier from here because the more people you have been following you, your post will start to help you get the attention from your follower’s follower and things could go viral.
When your followers are coming in steadily, you can now consider placing a link on your status update. Let it be a free gift to those who follows you and that’s when you will start building your list. It is always a good idea to load your autoresponders with a set of newsletters to help communicate and build a relationship with your list. Statistics have it that a typical visitor will only purchase after getting exposed to what you have to offer for 7 times.
Therefore, if you already have a brand awareness going on than your autoresponder messages will help you get more people to buy from you with ease. Always tweak your autoresponder messages accordingly and pay your attention to the questions that might arise. From the questions that you get you might want to create an F.A.Q list and place it somewhere near the end of your set of your newsletter.
Rinse and Repeat.
First, you need to only focus on one niche. Get the followers going and let it grow. At the first sign of the campaign going on auto pilot with just constant posting, you can move on to another niche. The key here is automation. If you are too busy to get followers or to post constant information regarding your niche, consider outsourcing the work. The great thing about outsourcing these days online is that it is very readily available and it cost very little. Be sure to choose the right people to get the job done because this might be the determining factor to your Google+ success.
