If you are a Gmail user, growing your connections on Google+ is as easy as opening an email. Users can add connections to their Circles easily by looking for the “Add to circles” icon on the right rail of the Gmail platform every time they visit their inbox. If one of your email connections is active on Google+, most times their photo will appear next to this button as well.
Wondering why you should invest your already stretched thin time on Google+? Google+ is a Google product and Google loves itself. Any content you post on Google+ can rank higher in search results than your website or blog in some instances. As you grow your connection on Google+ it is wise to take a few minutes every day to visit the site to read, comment and “plus one” things to spread your brand and interact with your Circles. Accessing Google+ from Gmail is a simple as clicking your name with the “+” next to it in the top area of your Gmail inbox.
