Are you using Google+ to promote your brand or content?
Do you want to find Google+ fans who love what you do and will share it with others?
When people share your stories, campaigns or products with their friends, they’re giving it their stamp of approval and their friends take notice.
This word-of-mouth marketing is invaluable, but how do you find these super-fans?
In this article, I’ll show you how to use Google+ to find the evangelists who want to tell the world about you.
How Do You Find Your Best Fans?
As a marketer, you want to find people who engage with your message and amplify it, spreading it on to others. These loyal fans, your brand evangelists, fall in love with your company and tell the world.
Google+ can help you find and engage with your evangelists, and lead you to a wider pool of potential clients. The process includes finding potential candidates, seeing which of those actually engage with your campaigns, and finally, those who share your campaigns with others (your true evangelists).
Prepare for Your Search
Before you start your search, create three empty Google+ circles to help you keep track of your evangelist candidates.

Are you looking for ways to improve your Google+ engagement?
Well look no further.
In this article I’ll share five ways you can improve your Google+ experience.
Because Google+ isn’t just a social network–it’s part of a powerful social platform that integrates with key capabilities like Google Docs, chat, hangouts, email and more.
For that reason alone, Google+ is a high-value opportunity worth investing time and resources to cultivate.
A common misconception is that Google+ is a ghost town. In reality, Google+ is home to vibrant, active communities that foster deep engagement. The trick is learning how to find and take advantage of these communities to build long-lasting relationships with your core audiences.
Here are five effective strategies that will take your engagement on Google+ to a whole new level.

A great blogging tool I discovered a few months ago is InboxQ. I like it because it helps me come up with better blog topics. This tool helps you find questions people are asking on Twitter.
InboxQ lets you create campaigns with different keywords. Usually the best thing to do is to create campaigns with keywords from topics you specialize in. So when someone asks a question with those keywords, you will be updated about it and you can answer the question.
You can work on these questions and come up with better blog topics in your area of specialty. For example, I have two campaigns: one on white papers with keywords like white paper, whitepaper, etc., and the other on social media with keywords like social media, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.
