LinkedIn groups can be very spammy and some can just be like a traffic-less ghost town. That’s because too many group members just leave their links in there and go. What i prefer doing is syndicaticating my posts on LinkedIn and then sharing those syndicated posts in LinkedIn groups. These syndicated posts receive a lot more traction in the groups than external links and you also gain engagement in LinkedIn Pulse.
Sales and marketing are about building relationships. People don’t buy from companies. They buy from people they know, like and trust. It takes time to develop these. Your company may have the perfect solution to my problem, but if I don’t like you, I’m not buying. While this strategy may take longer, your hit rate will be much higher.
Consumers of an MLM company’s products/services can, in theory, be merely end-user retail consumers. End-user retail consumers are non-participants of the MLM company, with their relationship to the MLM company being nothing more than in a capacity of consumers. In actual practice, however, the overwhelmingly majority of consumers of MLM products/services are the participants. They are the very “salespeople” within the MLM who had been recruited by a fellow participant positioned above them in the MLM pyramid structure.

A member of the public wore a shoelace as a necklace and tweeted a pic, it went viral. Engagement was at 310K and the story was picked up by the press. Whilst not directly promoting Nike, it brought huge interest @Nike. Strangely, Nike did not engage with the tweet.
Make sure to connect your Twitter account to LinkedIn. Others talk about why this is bad because a lot of your messaging won’t be targeted for your LinkedIn audience (especially when you use “@” symbols and hashtags), but for the most part, my message is staying at the top of mind for my connections on LinkedIn and for me that’s a powerful thing. Want to clean things up? Just use the #in with a Twitter update and it will sync to your LinkedIn account when there is a specific message you want members to see.

The tweetathon took place on Monday, June 13, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET, seven days before World Refugee Day, and it featured a number of social-savvy “Blue Key Champions” tweeting via their personal Twitter accounts for at least an hour each, while supporting tweets originating from the official @UNRefugeeAgency Twitter handle.

Thanks for more great tips, now I just need to go back and figure out how to get my video to automatically play and it would be nice if I could move it to the top. Outside of that it looks like I still have a lot to learn about LinkedIn, I’m excited about it.
Our strategy involves standing out on Linkedin by positioning our company as a leader and an expert source of information for purchase makers, market influencers and other stakeholders. When customers are ready to make buying decisions, we hope they will already be familiar with our company.
I love the telephone verified leads and recomend them to all my new enrollees. The fact that you know they just asked for information from a live person gives new people the confidence to talk with posture. Thank you Ron –
Pinterest also announced today that it’s giving test access to the ads API with several technology partners and brands. The company isn’t releasing details about features or participants but the general concept is the same content publishing API, except for Promoted Pins.
A true Bostonian with a knack for killer marketing tips, Mike Troiano brings a love of coffee, writing, and food trucks to the Twitter feed. @miketrap is an entrepreneur at heart, so he’s always looking out for the little guy even though he eats at the VC table on occasion.
It turns out that a social media platform designed to bring together employees and employers can do much more than that when used wisely by an expert in lead generation. This is, after all, a social media platform for educated professionals, presumably with a great deal to say and perhaps even a great deal of money to spend. The trick is finding the most effective ways to leverage the knowledge and experiences of the LinkedIn users while also giving them back a bit of something in return.
“Be a go-giver, not go-getter on LinkedIn. Use LinkedIn to add value to others. Spend quality time to connect with the influencers. Start a blog, build audience and boost your online exposure. That’s how you make most out of LinkedIn.”

Pinterest started testing Promoted Video last August with brands including General Mills, Kate Spade New York and Universal Pictures. Since then, it has moved to autoplay, a format brought into the mainstream by Facebook, and began placing video ads within search results and feeds.
Some members of your audience may only be interested in a specific brand or initiative, and that’s okay. Showcase Pages allow you to give your various audiences exactly what they want without overloading them with content.
Cornwell stressed that creating a targeted campaign on Twitter, instead of targeting a wider audience, gave appbackr the most bang for its buck. “LSATMax lends itself to a targeted campaign. We were able to focus on people on Twitter searching for relevant keywords — LSAT, law school, etc. — to let them know this app was available as a study tool.”
Today, content marketing has become a powerful model for marketers. Storytelling is part of it, and they must convey the companies’ messages or goal to their desired audience without pushing them to just buy the product or service.
Customers have a natural curiosity about where their products come from, and you can use Instagram to show them their whole lifecycle. This is especially relevant for companies that sell environmentally friendly or FairTrade products. Source images to demonstrate how products are made – from the base material, production and distribution.
These are some great LinkedIn tips. I am admittedly a new user and am trying to find out how to best leverage it for success. Do you know of anyone that has used it to secure business loans for small business or do most people use it simply for employment?

Whenever we’re asked where one can learn PPC on their own, we direct them to the AdHawk Academy. If for some reason they want more resources, we say Perry Marshall is your guy. Although most of us probably can’t afford a consulting session with him, Marshall provides a ton of free content that helps PPC marketers stay in the loop with what’s going on in the crazy world of digital advertising.
A February 10, 2011 article stated “It can be very difficult, if not impossible, for most individuals to make a lot of money through the direct sale of products to consumers. And big money is what recruiters often allude to in their pitches.”
When she’s not professing over lectures at NYU, Heidi manages the Actionable Marketing Guide blog. Unlike many marketing professionals, Heidi drives content towards measuring marketing ROI rather than simple content creation. Her article on making your social media marketing measurable (linked above) is one of our favorites. It outlines the riddle we are trying to solve at AdHawk; very few businesses are capable of tracking lead generation, marketing ROI, and attributed revenue across social media platforms.
“Given a valuable enough incentive, users will complete several registration steps for entry. The requirement to share a specific tweet and hashtag to an entrants own social network is what drove the success of this promotion, especially given that it wasn’t heavily supported by other media channels. In the future, we’d probably require that users take fewer steps for entry in order to increase the total number of entrants. Including a specific and unique hashtag was essential for tracking purposes.”
Every marketer, whether you’re new to the game or an experienced veteran, can definitely gain expert knowledge from following Handley.

Asking questions is an effective way to to interact with your audience, bring readers into the conversation, and understand people’s opinions. Tweet open-ended questions or use Twitter polls to survey on specific responses.
The paid shout-out is for those with a bigger budget as it’s essentially an influencer campaign. This usually involves paying a brand (or influencer) with a much larger following to promote your product or service. It’s a great way to gain a large number of new followers quickly, providing that you create a strong call to action and the influencer’s audience is genuine.
Like all content marketers, you want readers to get the most out of your content. But creating and distributing high-quality content across the increasing number of channels you’re expected to manage takes a lot of time and resources.
Share of voice (SOV) is the number of times a brand has been talked versus its competitors (conversations). Outside the digital world, SOV stands for the space and frequency a brand advertisement is placed on traditional media.
With Sponsored Updates, businesses pay to push their post onto an individual’s LinkedIn feed. This “pay-per-click” or “pay-per-1,000” impression feature offers demographics similar to other social platforms (location, gender and age), but one key differentiation is the ability to customize based on company name, job title, job function, skills, schools and groups. Users can target interested industries, without competing against the noise of other irrelevant companies and messages. A sponsored update can be an excellent way to promote thought-leadership content useful primarily to the targeted audience with a strong call to action. People don’t want to see pure advertising anymore and want something useful for free. By promoting a firm’s content (white paper, guide, etc.) through a LinkedIn Sponsored Update, a firm can target a niche audience, increase website visitors and, if the content is compelling enough, generate sales leads. — Jeremy Durant

After switching to fair trade produce, Ben and Jerry’s launched a clever Twitter campaign to help drive awareness. They created an easy to use tool that allowed consumers to send tweets from their website and if the tweet did not use the full 140 characters, any space remaining was used by Ben and Jerry’s to add a message about Fair Trade produce.
7. Twileshare. Sharing text, photos and videos on Twitter is easy, but what about those files that don’t fit the mold? That’s where Twileshare comes in. Tweeters who use Twitter for business accounts love this app because it lets them share everything from excel spreadsheets to PDF files.
