Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - How I Use LinkedIn Content for Intelligence

« Is the Customer Finally in Charge? | Main | Leading an Industry: Mayo Clinic Rolls out Center for Social Media »


As a blogger, it is important to consider what you want to get out of Linkedin. I've found that starting conversations in other relevant groups effective at driving QUALITY (not quantity) traffic to our blog, as well as meeting industry leaders. On the other side, our Linkedin group (The Transumer) has not driven traffic "home". What I realized is that people joining there are doing it "post-blog-visit" and less as an entry point. Has anyone else experienced this?


It's all in execution. If your questions are fleshed out and asked properly, they can show you've prepared and are interested in extending the conversation. The same applies to answers -- are you just throwing in a link and talking about your product, or are you providing insights? I know people who have received invitations to do media interviews, provide expert commentary and gotten opportunities to interview with companies on the basis of their LinkedIn participation (without having a blog). Does this help?

Nice post with really good intriguing information.
I have a question.How can we do blogging on LinkedIn by asking questions and answering other questions.
