How to create interaction and engagement on LinkedIn [reading time: 60 sec]

LinkedIn-Tip-LinkedIn Powertip-Petra-Fisher-LinkedIn-Training-TrainerJust start a discussion in a LinkedIn group and Bob’s your uncle. Right? Wrong! You’d think people will respond to interesting discussions, but most of the time they don’t.

What makes that YOU respond to a discussion? Or and update? Or just to click the ‘like’ button? I am guessing you are more likely to respond when a question is asked or a thought provoking statement is made. Or maybe … maybe there were some people that already commented and this got your attention.

Embrace the first response to your discussion

Or to speak with Ted Sivers: “The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader”. That is exactly what you need! Not being perceived as a voice crying out in the wilderness but as a  ‘thought leader’.
