If you are following the right tactics, your posts on Google+ will get shared by more people. In this blog post, I will share with you 5 tactics that will allow you to get more shares for your Google+ posts.
- Post the content that people will want to share. If the posts are noteworthy, people will share them. Make sure your are only posting quality content on Google+ that is very likely to get shared by your followers. Sharing quality blog posts is better than sharing a blog post with a typo.

- Post inspirational quotes. Whether you are on Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, or any other social network, inspirational quotes reel in the shares. I recommend having 5-10% of your posts you send out on a daily basis be inspirational quotes.
- Host a giveaway. A giveaway will encourage more people to share a post and follow you at the same time! Hosting giveaways exclusively on Google+ will make more people pay attention to your Google+ posts.
