For those who want to have a quality network or quality audience. LinkedIn is the perfect platform to get connected with professionals who are like you.
How do you stand out from a noisy and large crowd? In fact, how do you attract the correct group of people’s attention?
The keyword is “sharing”.
In LinkedIn, I would share technology news, productivity ideas and lifehacks that I find interesting.
I would use a tool called Buffer to schedule my postings. This tool helps me to stay engaged with my audience, especially on days where I am busy and could not do any postings.
Lately, I have participated in LinkedIn’s Daily Rundown. The editors share a daily writeup that made up of three pieces of news and a quote from a business leader.
I would take part in the discussion and share comments that I believe I can contribute to the writeup. I have been contributing to the writeup for four days.
The result is obvious. The number of views of my profile increased by 25%. I have also gained two new connections.
Does the increase in views and connections bring me immediate rewards? Probably not. However, by keeping myself relevant and taking part in the discussion, it helps me to keep studying and stay relevant to the industry.
If I never needed help or contact. I know I can to rely on my LinkedIn connections.
Does sharing work outside of LinkedIn? Yes! The act of sharing is the greatest gift. You can share your time by helping out at the local community hall. You can share your expertise on Quora. You can share knowledge with colleagues or classmates.
Through sharing, you know your knowledge gaps and you can improve on it.
The world does not owe anyone anything. We have to fight for what we want. Before we can receive what we want. We got to share it. Through sharing, we get recognition. We become the go-to person. By being the go-to person, opportunities will come our way.
See the world in abundance, and you will receive far more than you gave.
