In this article I’ll share five ways to cultivate Google+ relationships.
#1: Identify Industry Influencers Fast
I truly love to use NOD3x with my Google+ account. NOD3x is Ripples on steroids with a magnifying glass. It brings you right to the doorstep of people you want to meet.
We’re all looking to build connections with the right people. To show you how NOD3x simplifies that task, go to the site and type in the phrase “relationship marketing” and within five seconds the tool lists all of the influencers posting about that phrase.
Just like that, you have new people to check out and add to circles so you can follow them and start the relationship process.

This article will explain why Google+ should be considered and show you how to get started.
Google+ has quickly become a rival social network to Facebook.
People who like Google+ say they like the clean, non-cluttered presentation of their information. They like how easy Google makes it to protect their privacy. (It may not be any less invasive than Facebook, but at least Google makes it seem easy to get back all of your information.)
Google+ has had a growth rate much faster than that of Facebook or Twitter. More importantly, where Facebook and Twitter try to get you to be on their site, many millions of people are already on Google’s sites: Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Reader and YouTube to name a few.
