It’s no secret that Linkedin isn’t just a CV catalogue anymore. Everyone from your Sales Managers to HR team aren’t just prospecting, they’re sharing. Getting all the latest and greatest tips, tricks, news, articles and discussions. However gathering all of this can be a bit of a chore. In this blog we are going to show you how to get the most from your Linkedin news feed.
So it’s not exactly rocket science but the first step is to have appropriate contacts. Your Linkedin feed is filled with irrelevant updates, because you have irrelevant contacts. Therefore step 1 is to clean up, and make real connections. You can do this by having a contact exodus or change the way you make connections. Check out our blog that shows you how to make real Linkedin connections.
Richard Branson and Alan Sugar probably aren’t going to connect with you on Linkedin. But don’t worry, you can still “follow” them as “influencers”. All of the articles or status’ they post will then appear on your news feed. Learn how the influencers are influencing your field.
Maybe it’s not individuals that directly influence your line of work; perhaps it’s companies. Have an important distributor or competitor? Follow their Linkedin company page and their updates will be added to your news feed.
Trade shows and events are no longer the only way to meet likeminded professionals. Whether you’re a Graphic designer, blogger, IT consultant or developer, there is a Linkedin group for you.
