Right now it is easier to find and connect with local prospects on Google Plus than Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter – but it won’t be long before the window of opportunity closes. So what are you waiting for?
A powerful way to find locals on Google Plus is to use free Google Plus search tools created by third party developers. The advantage is that there are more refined and advanced search options, like employee or location based search, compared to the regular Google Plus search.
This is my favorite way to find locals on Google Plus. I call it “mimic and follow” and all you need to do is find a popular local personality, influencer or page and follow all the locals who follow that person or page.
