The Power of LinkedIn Posts

by scott pickard

I’m exploring and experimenting with this new world of writing and posting short- to medium- length content on LinkedIn. I like the way LinkedIn quantifies the responses to my posts. I definitely don’t want to waste anybody’s time and I want to give my audience (contacts) something useful. The feedback gives me incentive to write regularly and see if I can better match my topic selection to my audience to improve page views, likes, and comments.  Posting your writing on LinkedIn helps you more deeply connect with and understand the interests and priorities of your audience on an ongoing basis.  I like this!
