LinkedIn Brings Endorsements to Mobile

LinkedIn Brings Endorsements to Mobile | Social Media News | Scoop.it
With today's update, LinkedIn members can now view their top skill endorsements on their mobile profile, as well as accept and grant endorsements from and for other members.

Randy Hilarski's insight:

Do you use endorsements? I do but have not quite seen the value in it yet.

Mike Allton's curator insight, September 5, 2013 11:06 AM

Are LinkedIn Endorsements Spam?

LinkedIn Endorsements are not going away any time soon. While many have criticized LinkedIn and complained about the crowdsourced social signals, LinkedIn has forged ahead and has now added Skills & Expertise support to their mobile app, allowing us to view, approve and submit skill endorsements from anywhere.

But are they really as bad as people say?

No one has ever tried to endorse me for a skill that was inappropriate or even inaccurate. And whenever LinkedIn has recommended that I endorse one of my connections for a skill, they've always appeared to make sense.

And I can honestly report that I have received positive feedback from potential clients and connections who viewed my profile, saw my Skills & Expertise and endorsements, and commented that they were impressed. While I would never hire or expect to be hired on the basis of these endorsements, they seem to provide some value, and no harm.

And there's always the Secret benefit to LinkedIn Endorsements that I've written about before and mention in the article.

So what about you? Do you accept and give out endorsements? Do you think they add any value at all to your profile? If not, what about them is detracting from your professional LinkedIn image?

Thanks for your comments!

How Micro-Influencers Can Increase Your Sales

How Micro-Influencers Can Increase Your Sales | Social Media News | Scoop.it
Micro-influencers may have less followers than their celebrity influencer counterparts, but they can produce considerably higher engagement rates

janlgordon's curator insight, November 29, 2016 8:27 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Shane Barker because it provides insight on how to connect with micro-influencers for more sales.

 

You don't need to know a celebrity to attract more customers to your business online.

 

Understand How to Effectively Reach Your Leads

 

In order to attract more customers for your brand you need trusted recommendations. I agree that you can accomplish this by building relationships with those who have a strong following and higher engagement rates.

 

Barker goes over how micro-influencers can help improve your marketing strategy.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • A customer will be more like to trust a micro-influencer than a regular connection on social media. Building a relationship with them can help increase your conversion rates.

 

  • Mid-level leaders are perceived to be more knowledgable. Your product recommendations can go a lot farther when they mention your brand.

 

  • An increase in the number of followers can cause a decrease in the number of likes for posts on Facebook. Fewer, high-quality connections are better for engagement.

This Star Wars Trailer Will Blow Your Marketing Mind

This Star Wars Trailer Will Blow Your Marketing Mind

I know you're as excited as I am for the new Star Wars film to be released. And, like me, you probably needed an oxygen mask after watching the trailers.

As I thought about the third trailer, in particular, I began to notice some production elements that really spoke to me. Not just as a Star Wars fan, but as a blogger and marketer. I also became keenly aware of how the trailers have progressed over time, referring both to the three trailers for the latest film, Episode VII, but also the trailers for the original trilogy and prequels.

I thought it was worth spending some time digging into them and exploring how they've changed, and how the third trailer was actually an incredibly brilliant piece of marketing content.

You, too, must learn the ways of J.J. Abrams if you are to become a Jedi.

Mike Allton's curator insight, October 2, 2015 11:34 AM
 
Do you keep old, bad, blog ideas around?

A couple of years ago, I had an idea for a blog post. I wanted to point out all of the things that bloggers sometimes do wrong with their blogs, a kind of What Not To Do post, but I thought I could frame it like a Dear John letter.

Dear Mr. Blogger. I'm breaking up with you and your blog today because...

And then go on and list the reasons. Sounds neat, right?

It sucked.

I just could not, for the life of me, make that thing work. It probably boils down to the fact that in a Dear John letter, you're not going to go into depth on the criticisms and offer suggestions, you'd just list what's wrong and move on.

But here's the thing. Since I use Evernote and wrote the post as a note within my Blog notebook, I saw it. Daily. Over and over. 

I kept revisiting that post in my mind, months after I'd already decided it was rubbish.

So the question is, have you ever had an idea or even partial post like that? And if so, what did you do? Did you keep trying to make it work, or did you trash it?

What I did: http://www.sitesell.com/blog/2015/10/when-to-kill-those-old-blog-post-ideas.html ;

And note that wasn't my only failed blog idea!

Have a great weekend! And here's to all the ideas that never make it to the published state. :)

Marketing Your Business: It Isn’t All About Facebook

Marketing Your Business: It Isn’t All About Facebook | Social Media News | Scoop.it
Having a business development strategy that incorporates Facebook, and other social networks, in your small business marketing plan makes sense in our online world.

However, having recognized the opportunity afforded by social media, be careful you don’t fall into the trap of thinking that marketing today is all about Facebook, or social media.
