LinkedIn Groups - My Secret Marketing Weapon!

7 replies
Hello Fellow Warriors,

Did you know LinkedIn has groups? Everything from A to Z as far as topics go. And I should know - I use it to market piano lessons of all things.

But the real beauty of using LinkedIn groups for marketing is that you can post to as many groups as you want at the same time with one click using the LinkedIn plugin. It's available on any 'Share' button.

What I do is post my own press releases from PRlog to stimulate conversation. Does it work? I'm pretty much the number one contributor for many of the groups I've joined.

Will this get you noticed among influencers in your area of expertise? Absolutely. But you have to make it interesting enough so others will respond and contribute. I do this via press releases.

P.S. You can do this with articles too!

  • I was wondering when someone was going to get to this.

    LinkedIn groups are pretty interesting, well worth a look.

    (There's an official Fiverr group there, too.)

    Yes LinkedIn can be a good source of traffic but you know while using plugins we cant get enough of the groups unless we make posts to the most relevant groups and the good thing is that the post stays on the group main page.

      Linkedin is a business to business network and you have to be careful in what you do. Blatant self promotion does not work, you have to contribute and engage in discussions and groups.
      I have generated leads and business out of Linkedin but more importantly I have built a network of business people who now know and recognise my name and brand.
      I have joined lots of related groups and made contributions and promoted my services in a subtle and unobtrusive way.

      Linked in is a great place to do business if you use it the right way. If you look at my sig link I have put up a post about this that goes into it in some depth

    It's not really a plugin. Just look for LinkedIn on any 'Share' button or app that lets you share to LinkedIn. The point is, unlike Facebook, you can share to as many groups as you belong to with one click.

    Works great!
