So what does this have to do with you?
Well, if you are trying to promote yourself or your company, social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and the like are critical for any and all self promotion efforts.
900,543 groups means on LinkedIn there are groups for EVERYTHING!
So you join a group- now what?
Participate in ways that add value to the group. This brings credibility to you. The more credibility you have in the group, the more likely it is that when you post something about what you do, or what you sell, more people will take the time to look at it.
If all you do is post stuff about what you do and sell, few if any will pay attention.
Join a new group on LinkedIn this week and participate. Or, look at some of the groups you are already in, and add more value to those.
Get involved! This will get you noticed....
