I recently returned from Social Media Marketing World 2015, the largest social media marketing conference, which takes place in San Diego. Although I had my own speaking session this year on “how to build LinkedIn influence” at the conference, I really went back to school sitting in on a couple of terrific content marketing sessions.
LinkedIn is opening up its publishing platform to ALL members, not just the list of 500 or so LinkedIn Influencers. This means that anyone who has a LinkedIn profile (277 million members) will be able to publish long-form content (blog posts) on the site.
The best advice I can give you is that random tactics don’t work with social media. Rather, you need a plan, a strategy, and a framework that you can work within to create your own formula for success.
With over 1.5 million LinkedIn Groups, it can be difficult to find relevant groups and determine which ones might be the best for you to join. It is also important to find groups that are well-managed. Unfortunately there are many LinkedIn groups that are not.
