Do you have something to say? Did you just attend an amazing event like SXSW and want to share your key takeaways with your professional network? Or are you seeing trends in your industry that you want to talk about? The list of topics where you might want to share your two cents goes on and on.
Now what are you going to do about it? Answer: sharing your experiences in a blog post.
But how, you might ask? Your company doesn’t have a blog already set up and you don’t have the time to invest in creating your own blog – plus, how would you even get people to read it?
LinkedIn Pulse is your solution. LinkedIn’s publishing platform allows you to post blogs that will then be shared with the LinkedIn community. Most professionals have already invested a lot of time and energy into their LinkedIn profile and have an established network of contacts. Therefore, posting your blog on LinkedIn Pulse is a great way to leverage the professional network you’ve already built versus starting from scratch – developing a separate blog site and trying to drive people to it. Your audience is already gathered for you on LinkedIn Pulse.
