Obviously you are using other Social Networking Sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Just link your G+ Link with that profiles. Moreover you can share your Google+ profile with your friends on other networks.
Follow Others and Your Followers
This is pretty simple. Follow others, they will follow you back. This is very important when you have few followers in your list. But do it wisely. Don’t follow randomly. Try to follow people with similar interests. It also helps you to get more exposure in your niche. And I am sure you’ll get some followers even if you don’t follow them.
Don’t forget to follow your followers to keep you in their circle.
As I said, FOLLOW me, I will follow you 🙂

Get Google Authorship
Getting Google Plus authorship is must for a blogger or online marketer. It confirms that there is a person (not bot) behind any posts or articles. It shows Google+ profile picture in Google Search results with profile URL. It also makes Google Search listing attractive.
Join Google Plus Communities
Recently Google+ has launched Google Plus Community. It’s similar to Facebook Group. I found it more useful and appealing then FB groups. G+ Community allows you to share your thoughts, posts and starting hangouts with group members.
I think joining G+ community is a good idea if you want to engage with more people with similar interest. To find and join Google Plus Community, Click on the Communities icon in the left bar of your Google Plus . There you’ll find a list of groups where your friend have joined. You can also search for Groups with your interest.
BTW You can join my community Blogging Plus to share your posts. It is a Community for Bloggers to learn and share everything about blogging.
Place G+ Profile Link
Place your Google plus profile in different places like in your forum signature, in your authorbox, in your about page etc.
This will surely help you to connect with more people.
Buy Google+ Followers
Update: Google Plus is integrated with Search Results and it has a good value in Author Rank. So I think one shouldn’t spam G+ Profile. This tip is not recommended.
There are a lot of websites that offer buying or exchanging Google+ follower. But the problem is most of the sites provide fraud or fake user’s follow. You can try Vingler to get some Google+ follower.
