LinkedIn – 15 Minute Networking

Do this often.

Why?

Because it’s like sowing seeds. There are 3 main types:

  • Seed 1. People who can become your clients

  • Seed 2. Non-competitors who seek the same people as you

  • Seed 3. People that resonate with you who will see your posts because you build an algorithmic bond

Step 1 – 4 Second Networking

The first IMPORTANT way to find them is 4 second networking – that is, typing the current Linked Online hashtag into your own LinkedIn posts.

That way, people will find you too.

That’s easy:

Hashtag your posts so they are found by the rest of your Linked Online community – both in your WhatsApp group and the others.

If it is before the 15th of the month it is the current month hashtag. After the 15th, it is for the next month to fit in with our post writing competition

For example:

Before 15th November: #R11Nov20

After 15th November (For December): #R11Dec20

Step 2: Simply visit the hashtag for the current month.

Spend 15 minutes browsing through the posts. Look for those 3 seeds and comment.

Why This Makes A Difference – The Non-Technical Explanation Of The LinkedIn Algorithm…

LinkedIn is like a newspaper editor. It wants to make its advertisers happy by showing stories it thinks it’s readers will appreciate.

There’s a slight difference. It’s not a real person. Instead it uses an algorithm to decide which posts to show you in the newsfeed.

But because it’s not human, it doesn’t know what you like.

So it simply follows the behaviour of others – it shows posts that people like and comment on most in the newsfeed.

BUT it also depends on your past behaviour.

If you have commented or liked posts from a certain person before, you will see more of those in your newsfeed.

And vice versa.

Commenting on posts draws attention to you from the author. They are more likely to visit your profile. Then bam!

There’s an algorithmic bond.

Those interactions are recorded to decide which posts to show you:

Have you ever read a comment from somebody on your post?

Then visited their profile?

Have you noticed that if they are actively posting you suddenly start seeing them in the newsfeed?

The Linked Online community is how. You can find your tribe – all those seeds – by making a regular “trip” to visit the hashtags.

Every seed you see, sow it.

With a comment and a like.

Create those algorithmic bonds. Bring those people closer to you.

But how?

Simple. Search for those hashtags:
