Have you created a niche for yourself on Google+?
Are you ready to engage with other leaders in your space?
Part of building a strong community of people around you on Google+ is forming alliances with other leaders whose work is similar to but not the same as yours.
In this article you’ll discover how to develop alliances with community leaders on Google+.
Why Build Alliances on Google+?
Google+ isn’t yet as crowded as other social media platforms, and that means it’s easier for you to establish yourself as the authority in your niche. It’s your authority status that makes you valuable to other community leaders you want as allies.
As your relationship with a leader deepens into an alliance, your name will stay top of mind when people ask questions that relate to your area of expertise. You’ll be the one they recommend!
Ready to get started? Here’s how to build alliances on Google+.
#1: Share People’s Posts
First you need to recognize the difference between tribe members (your core community of followers) and community leaders. While tribe members participate in the conversations you host, community leaders host their own conversations within Google+ as well as on Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms.
Just as on other social media platforms, one of the best ways to get on another community leader’s radar is to share their posts on your profile. The difference with sharing on Google+ is that people may not be feeling as much love as they do elsewhere.
Share your potential ally’s posts consistently without going overboard and you’ll really stand out from the rest of their tribe. They’ll take notice and see the value in forming an alliance with you.
