Comments

Valeria,

Related to Linkedin, you reminded that Linkedin, like most networks, delivers on what you put into it. The Question/Answer section always delivers a high return in terms of value.

But beyond the post, you are generous in reminding people that the question you ask is just as important, if not more important, than the answers provided. Online or offline.

Best,
Rich

Very interesting analysis. I agree about lack of context. Hard to help people when you have insufficient information. Maybe it would be easier if people could ask questions via audio or video? I suspect you'd get more back story that way.

Valeria,

Great stuff, and thanks for creating this post.

Answering questions can be one of the best ways to build your expertise online, and if done the correct way can turn into major opportunities for you or your company.

One guy "I know" answered my question perfectly one time, and didn't give me a pitch (he did it the right way). I later asked him what type of benefit he was receiving from answering questions on LinkedIn... and he said by adding value to so many (without pitching anything) he was naturally bringing in clients because they knew he was sincere.

He told me he was getting about 3-5 new clients a month from this, generating some great extra revenue.

Just thought I would share, thanks again Valeria
