Team building is the key...I am because we are! And younar not alone.......27/07/2017 #16 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorDo anyone remember that Hiring is a process of elimination, a numbers game, LI is not for SMBs, so build a plan, use like in Aikido the energy of the opposition to your advantage. linkedin users spend 10 minutes daily.mWhat do you want to do with that, you are not their absolute center of interest. What is in you that is wirth for them. Just try the exercise. Once found, communicate only on that, and that only, n any languages, all posssible advertising technique with creative strategies. But dont do that alone.27/07/2017 #15 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorLinkedIn is very simple concept, put all candidate at one place to simplify hiring managers processs for 10 000+ employees multinational...and its is according to their own stats 47% of the users (remember to apply 23% of relative MAU). Th deception consist at making any other potential candidate that they will find their next big job thru there. Mission accomlished. 430 M regustration for 105 M+ active.27/07/2017 #14 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI love @Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA artcle because she showcases what these LI should have at least attempt to test, writing about the benefits and drawbacks, then asked users about their choices.Because now you must spend time on testing tricks instead of focusing on quality content. The focus was transfered to the views grapowth techbiques instead of being creative and stunning with richmedia feature, development of the ribbon menu .....haha 3 buttons...even video insert fails regularily.27/07/2017 #13 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorBulld relationships with like minded, share together experiences, try things, but seriously,mwhat is best for you? Tram building and go forward with innovative initiative that have a simple workflow map that anyone can replicate or apply recipes on LI that will work a day and not the others because of developpers without vision thought it would be easier, fester and cheaper to modify for the worst the code without any further consideration of your need.27/07/2017 #11 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorStrategic move, budget constrains, or simply coders for coding with no vision of UX and what cloud infrastructures means for workload balancing. Why do you think you have downtimes, Personal Information hacking and mass stealing with huge securiy breaches...LI used to be, and we should be grateful for that, we learned a lot.27/07/2017 #10 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorThe decline aiming at an early obsolescence versus any form of competition is arising, modifications accross the months show a lack of vision for social media UX, this isnwhat hapens when the obsolete Top to Bottom design approach is performed. You see clearly in UI and features the shift to a mobile app developpers only team.27/07/2017 #9 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#7 Acurate remark, YP with a mix of WP. my consern is the abscence of users concertation at large scale when they want to attempt a new development. So they even try polls or focus groups? I missed the part were they would conduct users surveys, and then have beta testers.27/07/2017 #7 Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA#3 Yes I made a similar comment in part 1 of this series. One should not have to resort to all kinds of experiments to figure out how to show up on a platform. It's ridiculous. I've called out their editors a couple of times too.
LinkedIn can be useful for peer-to-peer discussions but that use is declining due to the demise of groups. For business owners, It's pretty much a glorified Yellow Pages to find people to target off-line.27/07/2017 #5 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassadoroh btw, users engagement in my book is busines conversion, not views or back and forth comments...which is good but not putting bacon on the table. Keep Linkedin your next hiring manager need tonscreen you, meanwhile explore facebook, pinterest and twitter for business. They are bringing x 3 exposure and 100 x more opportunity.

GrinbergAnne, I try to cross-channel pollinate as much as possible, including on LinkedIn. I have likewise found that sharing blog posts from other sites (like beBee) as an update tends to generate a lot of views and engagement -- especially compared to the pathetic level of engagement by publishing on LinkedIn Pulse.

- 26/07/2017LOOKING FOR INPUT/OPINIONS:
It's no secret that simple status updates outperform long-form articles on LinkedIn. Could one support the other? Could status updates drive traffic to blogs?
How do you use LinkedIn status updates (those straight text things)?
How would you like to use them?
Would you like them to auto-populate from blog posts/RSS/ATOM feeds?
Would you like to schedule them out for occasional re-posts?
Would you prefer to set a certain number of re-posts then have it disappear by itself?
Would you like to support other people's updates?
Anything on your wish list for status updates?
We will try to implement whatever suggestions are possible to implement in the new LinkedIn functions on myTweetPack.com.
Comments27/07/2017 #9 David B. GrinbergExcellent questions, Paul. I'm not a tech geek -- although I'd like to BEE. However, I have noticed that sharing updates on LinkedIn actually generates much more engagement than by writing/posting on the LI Pulse publishing platform. Here's the latest example: I published an article on Medium about why CEOs should fire "monster managers" (as I call them). This article was previously published via beBee Producer and received 12,000 views https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/memo-to-ceos-fire-monster-managers-now
Unfortunately, the engagement on Medium is usually very low, especially if you don't post on a Medium-based mini-publication, like Thrive Global used to be (it has since moved off Medium, for all practical purposes, and exists as a stand-alone site). Thus, I no longer publish articles on Thrive via Medium. My aforementioned post on Medium only received about 400 views and 13 "recommends" (the equivalent of a "Like" or "Relevant"). https://medium.com/@DBGrinberg/memo-to-ceos-fire-monster-managers-82ab551285bb
Yet when I posted the article on LinkedIn as an update it received well over 3,000 views, a dozen comments and was shared several times. The same can apply with beBee blog posts or updates. Just cross-post to LinkedIn and see how much additional engagement it registers. Cross-channel pollination (marketing) is key to spreading the buzz as broadly as possible. This strategy likewise applies to cross-posting on Facebook, Twitter and other big platforms.26/07/2017 #2 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI have tested many techniques, while content is king and will remain. Newsletters to registered personal acquaintances, followers or business contacts &clients are effective on LinkedIn. The Audience is outside the network L1-L2.

Comments27/07/2017 #32 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#14 reverse engineering a platform is fascinating, the team has to put themselves in the shoes of the several generation of solutions architects,mprojects managers and coders who made LI evolved from its initial state. It appear that users enegagement caanot be all monitored, because your audience is not entirely made of followers. Making it a metric makes nonsense say former LI collaborators. The most important metric on LI is the conversion of suers into clients to calculate ROI.24/07/2017 #30 Sandra Smith#23 #27 #29 Thanks, guys, I really appreciate the encouragement. Jerry, thank you, that us a huge compliment to me! @Phil Friedman raises a good point -- i didnt do this for vanity metrics alone. 10 new followers since publishing on Li and one client referral. I believe content marketing does work although agree again with phil you have to be consistent. That's something that i struggle with but get inspired by you'all to do better. Cheers 😊24/07/2017 #28 Phil FriedmanBTW, @Sandra Smith, you've also pointed out, albeit quietly, that one of the most important, if not the most important metric of Engagement is the number of followers you pick up as a direct result of the post in question. Ironically, it is not a metric that is tracked by any of the major social media platforms. Cheers!24/07/2017 #27 Jerry FletcherSandra, Great job. I especially like the demonstrations and results.

LinkedIn is a landing plaform where users can turn the communication switch towards you...there again limited by LinkedIn inmail LOL.23/07/2017 #16 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI think new tool for social media and digital marketing analysis, automation and proactive workflows are the next avenue. You cannot change FB, LI or twitter or any platforms, but you can perform an autopsy to analyze the causes: LOL ...pick your choice: a) death 2) dysfunctions & disease 3) the workflows etc...
Affordable, not apps, but web servers S.a.a.S, are the key to override issues and master these platforms. Today these platforms decide of your fate....tomorrow you can have technology serving your goals, not theirs. And that time is coming sooner that you think. And it doesn't rely on API management always. My humble opinion..i am not debating here... Just because performance relies on quality content and affinity propagation.23/07/2017 #15 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#14 LOL thanks for the compliment, but i doubt so. \\\\\\\\\\\\\All the programming they do at LI as a specific purpose, l imitating users was a demographic growth issue they knew they would hit at some point. The conception itself wasn't affinity oriented, which is the core advantage of beBee. LI was initially created for 10 000+ employers that needed a global reach HR tool for funneling competition's candidate, then they aimed to democratized towards SMBs, then make individual think they need to be in the database...and they succeed: 430 M+ jumped, including me. Not being on LinkedIn is like refusing to learn english and code your program only with Olmeque's language.23/07/2017 #13 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI was thinking of....reverse engineering LinkedIn to better understand the LI mind set, and the inner secrets of its coding, if it does make a sense and what that sense could be? Everything works for a reasons and the opposite too, the journey is about tp find how, and not why...human factor was probably there when compiling code with or without a master solution architects and with what the manage the core project management. I wouldn't be surprised to discover wonderful gems of mismanagement and lack of prospective vision. It is not because it is big that it wasn't done with common sense. Behind the scenes views and hints reveals always good things to know. After you just feel like Simon Pegg in a comedy....Not surprised but caught in dire straights. LOL.
- Producer16/07/2017Branches of WisdomMy exchange of comments lately with the thoughtful Tricia Mitchell led to the writing of this buzz. Tricia wrote "Dearest @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you are too kind. I have greater breadth than depth, where my knowledge is concerned...
Comments22/07/2017 #48 Yogesh SukalThank you @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for appreciating my comment. Continuing to the point of turning information to knowledge and knowledge into wisdom.what if information we have is not enough. does this lmiting our wisdom.
One of philosophy group, someone posted "when nothing is sure everything is possible".
I guess most wisest approach to keep mind curious and open.
hence the some of few examples in academics trying some laws from one field to another field and it works.
So in my opinion branching out with curiosity and with open to all possibilities while branching out towards wisdom.18/07/2017 #45 Tricia Mitchell#25 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you mentioned if the trees could talk I know of people who purport to communicate with animals. I know what I am able to do in the non-physical realms, so I looked for a tree communicator. I don't know who authentic this man is or isn't, but I have heard of others who claim they are able to understand what trees are communicating. Here's a short clip of Jim Conroy talking about helping trees to be healthy, internally, then supporting them to be in synch - in groups, based on community and categorisation, then "balances the ecosystem" Never heard of him before until I searched online this evening https://youtu.be/UElnvKgOovY (under 4 minute video)18/07/2017 #43 Tricia Mitchell#36 love your comment, Jean Serio, so many people prefer to remain in their comfort zone, enduring the discomfort of the familiar, than taking risks. Growing up (depending on which era you belong to), we are told to go for the 'safe bet' not to risk everything that we have worked for. To be grateful for what we have accomplished (even if it has made us miserable in the process). I have met accountants, who joined the family business, because their parents were accountants. They didn't question whether if what they wanted to do was at variance with what was expected of them. Then, sometimes, they wake up one day in their 40s and question whose life they're living, as it's certainly not one of their choosing... Then begins the search to uncover who they truly are and their desires, when they're not looking to seek approval from their parents.18/07/2017 #42 Tricia Mitchell#38 Indeed dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee one of my buzzes in the making is of a woman who is preparing for exams. She is worried that she will not pass the assessment. Reaching out for assistance in a social media group, everyone suggested strategies. As I l tend to go against the grain, I asked her a veiled question: "Supposing you didn't have test anxiety?" What I meant was, "What is the benefit of this fear you've created?" Instantly, she got the awareness: fear of failure and money constriction. The tuition had cost a lot and she couldn't afford to fail. Yet, rather than choosing to change her belief pattern, she chose strategies (which work, but on a clean slate are far more effective). So, yes, fear does have a function - protection, including protecting us from failure, if we exhibit perfectionist traits. It's amazing how false assumptions can restrict our lives and choices.17/07/2017 #39 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#37 surely you are a born poet dear @Tausif Mundrawala. Yes we make false assumptions. It is onlt recently that science found the intricate relatioship between trees and fungi. Who knows if there is a hidden relationship between weeds and trees. Love the clarity with which you express yourself.17/07/2017 #37 Tausif MundrawalaSometimes we think that a weed like branch which had grown without our permission should be axed as soon as possible. But we may not know that the weed like branch would flourish one day and would become the rising star in the entire body of a tree. Getting rid of branches won't help because we may channelize our energy in trimming and manicuring it to look it's best. We don't know the fact that the most uncertain shapes and sizes of branches would make it an artist's delight when we see through through the lens of one. In the difficult time of grief which I am going through right now have allowed me to channelize my energy into more reading and reflecting on certain subjects and topics. Let these branches flourish to it's best level and allow it to bear fruits in future. Am glad that you shared this with us and am thankful for all your support, Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee17/07/2017 #36 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAThank you Ali Anani for another thought-provoking post. This particular post reminds me that often people don't branch out because they feel comfortable in the position they're currently in. Perhaps this is not the best position for them, nor will it provide them the salary or benefits required to better support their family; nor stimulate passion or a sincere feeling of accomplishment. In short they generally fear 'branching out'.
An interesting article in Psychology Today, by Mary C. Lamia PhD - 'Why You Should Fear Failure' - Dr. Lamia states it succinctly - "Many of the professionally successful people I’ve studied—both procrastinators and non-procrastinators alike—tend to fear failure. Some of them worry that a fear of failure might jeopardize their careers, especially those who tend to procrastinate as well." Here's a link to the full article - http://bit.ly/2uv5ppI17/07/2017 #30 Harvey Lloyd#13 What a transformative comment. Thank you for your thoughts and your words. Not meaning to hijack @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeePost but to extend the metaphor of the "slime", i would add:
If Proverbs 3 offers the end game then Proverbs 2 provides the path. The path being discernment.
Wisdom without understanding is merely an encyclopedia.
Discernment would imply that we need to see the Slime and discern wisdom and understanding in application of living within humanity.
I was struck by your thoughts concerning the dynamic vs binary. If I have discerned correctly the binary would state wisdom is within the parts where dynamic is the trust of the whole tree of life. I believe you have described faith here.
Through discernment we can look at the parts and develop a trust in either our own wisdom or grow the trust of understanding the whole, dynamic.
Please accept my apologies here if i have taken to much liberty with your comment, @CityVP Manjit

Comments22/07/2017 #5 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorI see LinkedIn as the collective transport bus..useful to carry ideas, but not here for perfomance unless you are elected by a non-controlled editors committee, they have 3 categories 1) they like you they push you on the stage 2) they don't like you...oblivion 3) They ignore you...its okay they have an agenda and you are not part of it.
People that are your proactive audience will engage with you in a funnel that will lead to business conversion...and you will prosper.
Scarcity but good distribution and automated marketing workflows works for me fine, I hammer the same topic and do not try to cover several to help people. Story telling and not self promotion...22/07/2017 #4 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorHello Anne ! We have approximately the same numbers of followers on this LI restricted communication tool. Good old times are gone, whatever some authors (if they write things, let's call them this way)...At least Li keeps open the freedom of speech, so let's celebrate that. In my humble opinion, followers base is not as important as it was...Many ways to use linkedin for what people call social selling, but physical social networking in events is way more efficient, Linkedin became a PR channel as the others are, but conversion is so low for the price or the efforts pourred in. On that KPI twiiter or facebook are more effective.
What strikes me is the 3rd layer contacts or better know as the (real) effective audience : Updates are locked and that is for the good of LI. As many users i stopped paying them because the value wasn't worth the investment, too many mistakes, downtime have taken down LINKEDIN personal brand. Customer loyalty is something fragile..beware...beware.

@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian I will give the #buzzBeBee hashtag on Twitter a try.20/07/2017 #15 Philip CalvertA great post - thank you. For what it's worth, I have been using a tool called Missinglettr which creates LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook status posts from a blog that you have written elsewhere. In short, you write a blog on your website (it needs an RSS feed) and Missinglettr will create up to twelve short posts from your content, which it drips onto LinkedIn over the course of a year. This is getting a lot more engagements than posting full articles on LinkedIn, but a side effect is that the number of people wanting to connect with me on LinkedIn has shot up dramatically. You may well find this of use to you too. Here's my link to Misslinglettr http://bit.ly/PCmissinglettr20/07/2017 #14 David B. GrinbergI agree with you, Anne, that status updates and/or discussion-related posts, and/or curating content results in higher engagement on LI than writing anything of Pulse. I know a lot of us here like to cross-channel pollinate by posting beBee buzz as status updates on LI. This seems to be working fairly well.

Many competitors consider their customers their property, and that is good for me...because customer loyalty is the hardest thing ever to keep alive and not to conquer.20/07/2017 #12 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#11 I agree with your disagreement, it is the Concordia, remember what applies to one doesn't to the other...we are all unique ..i mentionned that i was expressing my opinion, and my opinion only...I don't have the prentention to apply what i express to al cases.19/07/2017 #11 Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA#9 Well I am going to disagree with you on this point "Followers ain't your prospects. They are friends, competitors, passing by who pressed a button." If I want to engage with friends and family, I do that in person or on my personal Twitter and Facebook accounts, not from my business accounts. I expressed my feelings about this here:

Because talent must not be stopped because of budget limitation.19/07/2017 #9 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#8 in fact, to my own opinion, followers base does not matter, your customers are rarely a watching crowd. Audience on the other hand are anonymous ones that matters a lot, and you needs to address to them on a million scale basis. Funneling is important and mass marketing techniques and tools can help to convert them. Most people get confused when you have to qualify a prospect base. Followers ain't your prospects. They are friends, competitors, passing by who pressed a button.19/07/2017 #8 Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA#7 My pleasure. @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador for sure pay to play does improve impact but there are some members who are able to rack up 10s of thousands of followers, get featured regularly on Publishing channels, and generate thousands of views of their content with little effort.19/07/2017 #6 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorVery good piece! Every obsevation is true. However everyone must recall that linkedIn is a , a)recruiting tool biggest database in the world b) made for 10 000 + employees firms c) a paid-per-promotion website.
Do the maths, most is all about self centered promotions personal or corporate, some beleive the branding is free, while in fact you must pay. Social sellng doesnt come for free. LI is a cash machine. Money matters first. A global SM strategy brings results based on affinities and not only on beBee.
