Amazing is what it is! But it’s not for the faint of heart! Nope! And quite honestly, not everyone will want to do it. But those that do…look out…what a difference it makes!
What am I talking about? Well, to be frank…it’s called article posts. And they’re available right on LinkedIn. These are not your typical 160 character posts that you might see on Twitter or Facebook. Nah, these are hopefully well thought out, scripted, multi-paragraphed compelling pieces of literary copy. Or not!
Here’s how to get started…
Under your profile (that’s mine below), click the pencil icon and blame-o…you are taken to a screen that you can add a title and content for your post. Then add video, pictures, links and special formatting.
Regardless, of your thoughts on how people write or share their stories…this option of longer postings can increase views to your profile and add new fans, friends and followers into your funnel.
And, spreading your influence through social interaction is how you build trust and eventually make sales.
So, are you going to try it? Why not? It’s easy. Just write a few paragraphs! Let people know what you think and how it could help them. Isn’t it worth possibly gaining a few new clients?
Anyway, if I can help you spread your influence using social media…give me a shout out. This is what I do.
