#4 LinkedIn – 6 Part Social Media Series -Cross Posting
Cross posting does not seem to be much of an issue that I can find in LinkedIn. I found in my account that Twitter was the only other social site that I allowed to post on LI. Now I may find more sites that could cause a cross posting issue the more I work with it, but for now, it’s not a problem.
Professional Social Media
LI will suggest people for you to connect with after they get an idea of who you are and what you do. Don’t connect with people just to increase your numbers, connect because you have common interests. If you accept a connection, send them a short message but NEVER try to send a link or push your opportunity on them. Get to know people, like you would want them to take an interest in you.
The Real LinkedIn
BEWARE and FOREWARNED
If you are banned or removed from a group because of spamming or non-professional behavior, you will be BANNED in ALL of the groups on LinkedIn; no questions asked, you are DONE!
In your groups, be active, ask questions and answer questions if you can. You want to be known as an active member who provides valuable information in every post you make and it WILL be noticed. You are then able to connect with people who are in the same groups that you are in. With a free account you are allowed to email members once a week through the LI system.
If you enjoyed this post and found it helpful to you, please comment and share on the social networks with everyone and let me know how I’m doing.
