I constantly go on about the basic things can do even if you are on the free version of LinkedIn – ie not the upgraded “pro” version.
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
Recently I’ve been doing more video content for TLD as a personal challenge. And I’ve tried, with a couple of them, to go beyond Instagram and Instagram stories, and post the videos onto LinkedIn.
I guess the counter-question for this is: Why would the majority of businesses today either be doing something about social media, or otherwise mortifyingly aware that they aren’t doing it right/enough/effectively?
True, it’s often a waste of time.
My old views
I used to adamantly believe that everyone can learn how to do social media themselves, and should do some of it themselves for at least a month so that they can be more responsible if they outsource it. By doing so, they will be able to understand better what works and what doesn’t. I’d seen so many people hiring in interns and their teenage relatives, and with very little information imparted about their business, handing over the keys and the passwords to their social profiles.
Believe it or not, another three months have passed since our last coverage round up! It’s been a busy summer here at Top Left Design and we have received plenty of press coverage this quarter. Let’s take a look at the highlights.
We recently launched a website for yet another superstar client – Dan from Trader Trading Hub. And it got me thinking. The team love working with Dan, and we want more clients like him. We want to copy+paste him!
And we’re lucky. We have many of these favourite clients and on the horizon, I am feeling that more seem to be coming our way!
The algorithm is going to get you
Our playing field is perhaps not levelled when it comes to digital marketing, but if you’re willing to put the time and effort, you can get meaningful results. And, we’re here to help look over your shoulder if you feel stuck.
Make a page for your event
This is the landing page that can describe the event and allows people to sign up. I like Eventbrite, though it takes a commission it’s really easy to use and people can book themselves in. You don’t have to manage a spreadsheet of attendees, it takes care of payment online, and it sends reminders a day before the event to those who have signed up. It also lets you modify the URL of the event so you can use this when sharing the event on social media, in emails, and in your email signature.
One of my big goals a year ago was to get myself into speaking at Soho House! They regularly run events, and I have been a member for 4 years.
Bravely, I put myself out there, and on the 3rd June 2016 I did one of their “Lunchtime Talks” on the subject “Extreme Twitter”
Want to help a colleague/client with sharing things on LinkedIn? That’s good!
But finding their latest posts isn’t as easy on LinkedIn as it is on Twitter, Facebook, or Google Plus.
