What’s the secret behind getting more Google+ followers?

Getting Google+ followers is much like building a pyramid. Except you don’t have a limitless supply of slaves. What you do have is bricks. And you have to lay them one at a time.

How long does it take? A day. Then another day. Then another.

How long does it take? A day. Then another day. Then another.

Every time I put someone into my contact/address book, I put them into my Google+ network. I try to also say something nice to them on Google+, or pass around something that’s already up on their feed. No matter what social media platform I’m on, I always try to do one or two nice things for whoever I’m coming in contact with. Gotta Good Samaritan-up! So, if I send out five Google+ invitations a day, it would take me less than two years to have 3000 followers.

Plus, there’s some very cool people on Google+, and I like the visual nature of it. And now that’s where I go to store most of my pictures. Essentially Google+ has become my picture cloud. Plus they have great vines that make themselves automatically, when you input sequential pictures.

One warning though, if you don’t want everyone to see the pictures you’re taking on your Smartphone that are being automatically uploaded onto Google+, make sure you click the box that says you want them to be private, until you release them to the public. I took a compromising picture a few years ago in aseedy bathroom and Alaska that somehow made it out onto the World Wide Web. Luckily, I was able to nip it in the bud.

But in terms of building Google+, Facebook, Twitter, any of that stuff, we can all learn something very valuable from the recovering alcoholics. One day at a time!
