If you want to hurt your brand page and start getting uncircled fast, here are some killer ways to manage your Google+ page:
1. Only post about your brand
A great way to get uncircled is to just to link to yourself exclusively. Never share other people’s content. Never talk about anything other than your brand. Every post should be about what your company is doing.
2. Disable comments
Don’t allow anyone to talk with you, so make sure you disable comments on your posts. Besides, your Google+ page is about you, not about engaging with others.
3. Lock your posts
Don’t let anyone share your content. If people want to read what you write, they need to make the effort to visit your page to see what you’ve written. You’re worth the attention.
4. Always force people to click to your blog or site
Make sure people need to click on a link to go to your page to read what you have to say. This is your opportunity to get more site traffic. Never post a complete message within Google+.
5. Stay top-of-mind by clogging the stream with your content
If you want visibility and more clicks to your site, you should be posting sales content as much as possible. The goal is to clog the stream of people that circle you with your content. Keep your brand top of mind literally.
6. Post pictures and funny animated gifs all the time
People love pictures in their stream, so make a habit of always posting funny pictures and/or animated gifs along with your update. They’ll love it.
7. Don’t complete your “About” section
People should already know who you are — and only need a link to our website. They don’t need to know who is managing your page or how to contact you.
8. Always be marketing
Every post should be selling something. Always have a call-to-action to drive someone to your website to buy or do something that will help your business. After all, this is why they circled you — so they can buy more from you.
9. Don’t be personal
Nobody likes a brand that tries to be friendly. You’re a company – so act like it. Talk in the third person and use every post as a press release.
10. Don’t comment on other people’s posts
Never go into the streams and comment on people’s posts about you or your industry. Look, you’ve got more important things to be doing than talking back to people who are referencing you in their posts. Don’t give them the time of day.
11. Never circle people back
People who circle you might have other motives, so don’t worry yourself with circling people back. You’ve got better things to do than to acknowledge people by circling them back.
12. Don’t share other people’s content
Even if the content is about you, don’t share other people’s content. The last thing you want to do is promote another page or person on your wall. Remember, this page is just about promoting you exclusively.
If you want to see subscribers drop like flies, just follow the above advice to stop engagement and any relationship with your brand.
