Guy Kawasaki on why Google+ is relevant and how to use it to your advantage


In a recent webinar with SmartBrief, Guy Kawasaki (you may have heard of him) gave some advice on how to use Google+ effectively. He shows how Google+ is a way of sharing your passions with new, interesting people. To do so effectively, he offers a few pieces of advice. For example:

Comments are key. Responding to posts and engaging with commenters is the heart of Google+ networking. Respond to everyone who comments on your posts and give Plus Mentions to all your commenters. Comment on the posts of people you find interesting as a way of introducing yourself—but be sure to do so in a way that cuts to the chase and adds value. The plugin “Replies and More for Google+” can make this much easier. Don’t get sucked into long arguments with negative commenters. Respond three times and then move on.
