Google Plus 1 Contacts
Your contacts can be organized into “circles”. Your G+ circles are probably going to be pretty empty to start with, but there are several resources you can use to create bigger “circles”.
G+ 1 now has many directories. You can search through them to find people who may be interested in your particular niche, or who are looking for the service you can provide. Of course, you need to add yourself to the directory and create your profile. Think of this as another social network resource and you won’t go far wrong!
Just as you are looking for thousands of G+1 users – they are also looking for you!
Here is a popular directory link for you: Plus 1 Directory 1
All you have to do is copy and paste your account ID (this is a set of numbers that represent your Google + account) into the directory page and you will be added immediately – it is as simple as that.
You can also go here: Directory 2.
Did you know that this site already has 1 million users? It is still growing at quite a pace so be sure to add your Google+ profile page to this directory as soon as possible, if you want to increase traffic to your web page or blog posts. There are several search footprints you can use to find people. The best thing is to go there and “play”.
Try this one also: Directory 3.
Here you can search for people by using tags and categories so that you can carry out targeted searches rather than simply look for gender and location, etc. It’s a great way to find people who are looking for what you offer. This is another reason why you must have your G+ profile looking as professional as your sales letters.
Using Forums For Promotion
Many people like to use forums to promote their services. All you need to do is paste your account ID profile link into your forum signature with a short note to call them to action by adding you for more information. Use it much in the same way that you ask people to add themselves to your Facebook page through Twitter.
You can use this G+ Link to shorten your profile link. Also add this to your Facebook, Twitter and other social network profile pages that you have. Add it to your own blog and even as your link page when you comment on other blog posts. Get your profile link “out there” so that you are more likely to rank for the keywords in your G+ 1 profile headline.
Importing Your Facebook Contacts
If you have a healthy FB following, you will want to add them to your Google Circles. Here is how to do this very quickly without having to ask each follower or fan to add themselves, one by one. Use Yahoo to do it!
Yahoo mail has a very useful tool that can be used to import your FB fans and followers directly into G+ 1
If you do not have one already, then sign up for a Yahoo email account: http://www.mail.yahoo.com. Please note that if this is a new account you will have to wait 14 days to be able to use this tool. If you have a Yahoo email account already, then great, use it here.
Log in to your Yahoo email account and then click the “contacts” tab (top of screen). You will then click on the button to import contacts (next to the FB sign). You will then be able to select where you want to import your new contacts from. Select the FB logo and log in to FB through this Yahoo email account. It may take a few minutes to complete the import, when you will see just how many FB contacts have now been imported.
Google Circles – Find and Invite
Now log in to your +1 account and click on your “Circles” tab. You can now go to the “Find and Invite” link and click on the Yahoo sign. You will get a pop-up asking you to agree to the request. When you click on “Agree” you give Google the permission to import all your contacts from Yahoo, which, of course, are all your FB contacts.
Just remember, if you have to sign up for a new account with Yahoo, that you must wait 14 days before you are able to import contacts – but there is no faster or easier way to import thousands of followers into your +1 account, with a few simple clicks!
