How to Benefit from the LinkedIn Publishing Platform | | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it

Did you know you can publish your articles on the LinkedIn publishing platform?

 

Do you want to build more authority in your niche?

 

LinkedIn is opening up its publishing platform to all 277 million+ members!

 

In this article, I’ll show you how high-quality content creators and bloggers can use LinkedIn’s publishing platform to build their influence....

22 LinkedIn Secrets LinkedIn Won't Tell You

22 LinkedIn Secrets LinkedIn Won't Tell You | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it
LinkedIn can be the best tool for building your brand. If you incorporate these seemingly counterintuitive techniques into your LinkedIn strategy, you will build a stellar profile, be visible to decision makers and be skilled at using LinkedIn as a career-management tool.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I found this article actually on Scoop.it.  I guess one of the few mildly inconvenient things about SI is that when you see a post served up to you as something you might want to curate, you really have no way of knowing until you read it. 

 

Personally, I prefer not to 'scoop' things unless I really think they're interesting but, on the other hand, I'd be more than happy to give credit to the person who originally scooped it.  But it's not easy to do on Scoop.it.

 

Anyway....here it is.  Anything about LinkedIn is worth at least reviewing.  This would also be a great article to 'spin'....like, if you've got some kind of blog of your own.

A Rabble-Rouser’s Rules for Writing Kick-Ass Closing Paragraphs - Copyblogger

A Rabble-Rouser’s Rules for Writing Kick-Ass Closing Paragraphs - Copyblogger | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it

You don’t want your post to fizzle out with a few drab sentences. But how can you come up with something truly inspirational?

 

... Your job as a blogger is not simply to write tutorials.

 

Your job is not to share tips and facts and advice.

 

A useful tip that’s not implemented is like a riveting book that’s never opened. It’s forgotten and useless.You’re not simply a blogger. You’re a mentor for your readers, a chief of your village, a leader of your tribe.

 

Come on. Fire up your tribe. Jump-start their actions.

How Klout Is Poised To Clean LinkedIn’s Content Clock - Business 2 Community

How Klout Is Poised To Clean LinkedIn’s Content Clock - Business 2 Community | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it

Late last week Klout announced its intent to empower its users with the ability to view and share curated content that is custom-tailored according to the social graph of the user and the user’s audience. This is a throwback to early last year when LinkedIn actually did something similar — when its content was still useful. However, since curation is based on an individual user’s social graph and what actually resonates with their audience, this looks to be potentially better.

 

Klout describes it this way:

“The ‘Create’ tab helps you find great articles and posts worth sharing with your audience. Unlike most apps that suggest content for your personal consumption, Klout intelligently recommends content that will strike a chord with your unique set of friends, fans and followers. Helpful tags highlight fresh content that is starting to trend as well as items that closely match the interests of your audience members and are likely to resonate with them.”


Via Jeff Domansky
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Interesting news.  I've gotten the impression that LI is getting a big case of the 'stuck-ups' with the way they've been treating their customers lately.  I do know that Klout is an easy to use site....even if I never was certain that it had any real benefit.

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, February 12, 6:04 AM

Klout launchers a content marketing and curation offensive against LinkedIn. It looks like a winner and is definitely worth checking out.

Google HelpOuts... one more step forward

Google HelpOuts... one more step forward | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I do think this is BIG but...I also don't think it's any surprise.  It's been pretty obvious that this is the way that the internet was evolving.

 

Considering that one of the fundamental essences of the internet is that it's just a way of connecting 2 or more humans, it only makes sense that anything people can do together (intellectually anyway) should be able to be done on the internet.

 

This obviously includes teaching.  After all, all teaching is is the human equivalent of 'data transfer', right?  One of the biggest limitations has been the size of the screens that people have in their computer set-ups and also the strength of their video connections.

 

I'm thinking especially of how improvements in these two factors (screen size and band width) relate to teaching things like dancing.  This sales pages mentions somebody using Google HelpOuts to teach Yoga but, in my view, that's somewhat similar.

 

But I'll guarantee you that there's going to be gold rush of people getting into using this kind of technology to teach and consult. For one thing, I think that if a person could really learn this....it's going to creat a boatload of opportunity for language teachers (especially when you incorporate the multiple participant features of Google Hangouts).

 

This kind of technology is going to radically effect the 'seminar' business too.  I suspect that to really 'max' it out, a person will need to incorporate Google+ (and various Google+ "Pages"), and know a little bit about SEO. 

 

And probably, in using HelpOuts to market, it would also be a good idea to incorporate YouTube and some astute video SEO too. 

 

But anyway you slice it, I think the opportunities presented by Goodle HelpOuts, and the way of thinking that goes along with it, are awesome.  I've got this product on my 'buy soon' list.

A Beginner’s Guide to LinkedIn Showcase Pages

A Beginner’s Guide to LinkedIn Showcase Pages | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it

Learn how to use LinkedIn Showcase Pages to generate leads.

 

Having more than one buyer persona is a balancing act. If they're very different, you may feel like you're constantly in danger of not giving one enough attention, or confusing your personas with untargeted content. Add the problem of keeping all your content grouped together on one social media page, and you're really lost. 

 

Some brands have found a way to fix this issue on LinkedIn, specifically, by creating something called Showcase Pages. Let's take Gap as an example -- they've got a page for Old Navy, Banana Republic, Gap, and Gap Inc. But those pages aren't all connected or centralized around Gap Inc. Showcase Pages, however, fix this problem....

How To Say “This Is Crap” In Different Cultures

How To Say “This Is Crap” In Different Cultures | Building a Web Presence | Scoop.it

...Managers in different parts of the world are conditioned to give feedback in drastically different ways. The Chinese manager learns never to criticize a colleague openly or in front of others, while the Dutch manager learns always to be honest and to give the message straight. Americans are trained to wrap positive messages around negative ones, while the French are trained to criticize passionately and provide positive feedback sparingly.

 

One way to begin gauging how a culture handles negative feedback is by listening to the types of words people use. More direct cultures tend to use what linguists call upgraders, words preceding or following negative feedback that make it feel stronger, such as absolutely, totally, or strongly: “This is absolutely inappropriate,” or “This is totally unprofessional.”

 

By contrast, more indirect cultures use more downgraders, words that soften the criticism, such askind of, sort of, a little, a bit, maybe, and slightly. Another type of downgrader is a deliberate understatement, such as “We are not quite there yet” when you really mean “This is nowhere close to complete.” The British are masters at it.  The “Anglo-Dutch Translation Guide”, which has been circulating in various versions on the Internet, illustrates the miscommunication that can result....
