A Catch-up

Welcome to this weeks dose of all things LinkedIn. I've struggled through the heatwave that has hit the UK this week to bring you this episode, I hope you appreciate it!

LinkedIn Post Analysis

I asked listeners if they would be prepared to have me critically appraise their LinkedIn posts...Funnily enough, I didn't get many volunteers but all credit to Patrick Twitchett for being brave enough to give it a go. In this episode, I take a look at four recent posts, two that did well and two that somewhat bombed!

Driving LinkedIn Group Engagement

We know LinkedIn groups aren't what they should be and that LinkedIn have left the functionality woefully short of Facebook groups but that doesn't mean that we can't make them work for us. It's time start taking responsibility ourselves and stop waiting for LinkedIn to pull their socks up. Dylan Jones is doing just that!


Communication & Listening
