    This is a terrific analysis. You seem to have cracked the code. However, you are still only getting a few comments/likes on your posts but that is more a a function of the weak large audience on Linkedin. And there is still the problem of Pulse having it's algorithm shut down. BUZZ ON! @John White, MBA

    You know, Sandra, content is still king. You can throw enough crap against the wall to get some of it to stick once in a while, but that does not build durable results. But if one starts with superlative content and bolsters its chances to be exposed and noticed, well, that is the path, I think, to success. But I'm pretty sure you get that already. Cheers!

    #2 LinkedIn's API is weak but convoluted. As seems to be the general case for APIs, it's documentation is horrid.

    The LinkedIn module is still in the "what, exactly, will we use it for" phase. For the general membership, I think we will just stick with posting updates. Again, we need to determine the "why" and "when." At least, we finally figured out the "how."

    There's also a multinational that wants LI data-mining capability. That will likely be a completely separate web property from myTweetPack.

    The @ and #, are tricks Mr Guy Kawasaki have been preaching in his book and are used by performing bloggers. It helps #LinkedIn to dispatch your content to #list #hashtags and to targeted people with a @xxxxx mention. The emotion put in the content helps a lot to get a reaction by viewers, like eye catching written visual in a flow of updates. If you have found a format that performs, then applying the recipe found is the key !

    This dovetails nicely with my findings, @Sandra Smith. So much so, that we are now building a LinkedIn module to https://www.myTweetPack.com . It will specifically address this issue and increase LinkedIn activity/visibility.

    Status Updates work better than Article Posts, with or without a link. Also, and this is counter-intuitive, updates with images perform much worse than straight text. I see little difference between updates with a link and those without.

    Since LinkedIn requires a lower posting frequency and allows for longer text, myTweetPack will use a completely different, LinkedIn-specific back end. Our original intent was simply to circumvent IFTTT for LI updates. Now, we decided to build an entire module to store and schedule updates.

    #21 I used the one line paragraph approach in a status update and without an image. I also added the link/URL to the first comment. Four hours later views are up to 425 which is a lot higher than usual for this type of post. There is a lot of sense in one line paragraphs; I'm getting a lot of success with it in emails.

    At this point, I also want to say that one should not have to use a million time-consuming workarounds to get their content viewed. Content should be visible to connections and followers....period. Not even posting in groups works as members are not notified of new content and in many instances, announcements no longer work. They work in 1 of my 6 groups.

    Status Updates:

    - List Post: 8 Ways to Generate Revenue from Team Building - 301 views & 3 likes in 24 hours
    - Text Only + Link: Team Building: 3 Ways to Get More Bang for Your Buck - 470 Views, 6 likes & 2 comments in 2 days

    Publisher Post:

    - Team Building: 3 Ways to Get more Bank for your Buck - 46 views, 5 re-shares, 6 comments, 15 Likes - a total waste of time

    All of this activity generated 18 hits to my website. I have 129 hits with no referring links so if I am optimistic, perhaps some of those were generated by LinkedIn. If I am pessimistic (or realistic) perhaps it just too much work for too little return.

    Identical post on beBee:

    A 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/PCmissinglettr

    I 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.

    Prospects are unrevealed targets in marketnsegments that will be processed through funneling (succession of workflows) up to a purchase act.mThat applies to my way to doing marketing. Which might differ to others marketers when they market products or themselves. I also consider a former customer a prospect with respect, because we must work hard to deserve the renewal of his/her trust for the next purchase act. 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.

    #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:

    #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.

    Very 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.

    Thanks for this astute analysis, Jo. It's unfortunate for LinkedIn users that the site appears to be too little, too late -- as online video first emerged over 20 years ago, with YouTube coming on the scene in 2005. So what the heck took them so long? Also, why doesn't LI offer a live streaming mobile app, like beBee?

    Great Article. I have been a member of LinkedIn for a number of years and over a 1000 connections. I have found that LI Pulse has become more of a dumpsite like MySpace did. About 8 months ago, I joined beBee and slowly began transferring my articles to the Hive. I notice that my highest visit rate on LI is my lowest on beBee. I have tried many platforms, yet none of my content every began to go viral until I joined the hive. So I thank @Javier 🐝 beBee and all you fellow bees.
    I did not change anything on my part. I always promote, comment, and share others first. The difference is the community in the Hive was the first to respond in such a positive way. We all help each other, we will all read are goals.

    Excellent points, as usual, Jim. I strongly echo your sentiments having shared a very similar experience myself. I would just reiterate that one of the great aspects of how beBee promotes user engagement -- rather than tramples on it like LI -- is that beBee blog posts are shared with everyone in a user's network. Moreover, users are also able to share their posts on three separate hives to maximize engagement. Some of the nearly 30,000 hives have upward of 100,000 members and more worldwide. Thus, if someone is still relying on LI Pulse they will never know how much organic reach and engagement they are truly missing. Put simply, beBee Producer beats other publishing platforms hands down. Thus, it's should be a "no brainer" decision for writers/bloggers who want to amplify their message and maximize their reach: just remember this simple equation: beBee = Better Buzz!

    #23 Jim, are you talking about the difference between posting an "article" on the publishing platform (Pulse?) vs. posting an "update" in the main feed? If so, I agree that often posting updates in the feed gets you more response than articles on the publishing platform. And I have suspected for a long time that is because Pulse distribution is choked down by the algorithm, while the general feed is less restricted. And I think that opinion is consistent with the observations of major online marketers like @Candice 🐝 Galek. Cheers!

    I had problems similar to yours on LinkedIn and worse when I questioned the help team the answer I received is that I was not welcome to the network because many people did not like it because I had an opinion, ie the more you dislike the opinion of others Interesting to the network you are. What's more interesting is that some of my LinkedIn claims included hacking into my operating systems, the answer could not have been more stupid: the problem is yours; if you invaded your operating system (Windows - Microsoft) it is because it is not safe. Then there was the doubt, if Microsoft bought LinkedIn and told me that the operating system was not secure, and they were the creators and owners of that system, then I do not care about being another user on a network that is not reliable. Who lost? LinkedIn, because after my departure I have not lost any followers of my networks, very contrary, I doubled the followers, because I discovered here in BeBee honest people who have opinions, but above all are respectful.

    It is important to differentiate sponsored content from pure ads placements. Don't get it wrong. Sponsored content requires a mix of numerous talents of creation, this is why Izea call users CREATORS. and not limited to writers. Writers a writing books, bloggers are publishing posts or short formated articles. Creators are strategists that are multitalented in various discipline. Not only in writing.

    #16 With all due respect, Stephan, since you imply there is something wrong with my questioning you about IZEA, this is why I am uncomfortable with what you've said and not said.

    1) This is a direct quote from my IZEA account (yes, I have an IZEA account already) --

    "Refer Your Friends
    Recruit other Creators and Marketers and earn a commission on their earnings or Opportunity spendings."

    https://app.izea.com/creator

    I do not question your entrepreneurial activities, but It seems to me you should disclose that you are building up earnings or potential earnings by getting writers on beBee to sign up. Could this be why you want everyone to sign up before sharing any of the further details?

    2) On the Payments tab on the Finances page it says:

    "Deposit money from PayPal to cover plan fees, incidentals, or fund campaigns. PayPal deposits are not recurring and are subject to PayPal’s terms of use. You will be taken to PayPal to complete the transaction."

    https://app.izea.com/user/finances

    This is confirmed on the Earned vs Deposited Balance page, where it says,

    "Your Earned balance will reflect all the money you have earned within the platform. These are the funds that are available for you to cash out toΒ your PayPal account. If you are on a Basic or Pro plan, and you have funds in your Earned balance, your plan subscription fees will be removed from this balance even if you have a credit card on file or funds in your Deposited balance."

    https://app.izea.com/user/finances

    3) Contrary to what you seem to be saying, the "Marketplace" is the ONLY forum in "Marketers" and "Creators" can meet to negotiate "Opportunities. If you can show it is otherwise, please do.

    4) I have not named other freelance writers' markets -- most of which I've found to be useless come-ons that say they are free to sign up, but then charge various fees before you can bid on jobs or earn "certifications" to make yourself more attractive to their (phantom) cl

    I Have been doing pretty well this past 28 years because of one gift (at birth ?) : I AM A PART OF THE SOLUTION, NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM. If you have other issues, but you don't seem to intend to use IZEA through what i witness. Be welcome to private message me, i will be most happy to redirect your claims from outside the Platform to IZEA, but frankly why would they assign a resource to someone who is not a user ?
    Sorry you couldn't signed-up because you didn't find any data (though available everywhere if you search).
    I cannot help you if you do not want to be helped.
    Have a great journey on the Writer's path ( a creator too) !

    The Team expands every hours, not only on beBee, but Facebook, Twitter, followers lists, we will reach the 1K+ by tomorrow. Why, because we worked for that team to beBee beautiful and nobody forced anyone making up his/her mind an disgn up. I am currently helping each of them that gently and respectfully asked for help from USA to UK to India to anywhere in the world. So far, those who signed up, have a better insight (inside) view of what i does, how it works and what EFFORTS that have to accomplish to complete all the Izea recommended business process. I am even preparing tools and posts to leverage tools and methods to maximize the inputs that are required by the platform.

    So to conclude: There is no charge for THE CREATOR unless this one wants paid services in extra.
    I suggest strongly to use this site for commenting : https://www.yelp.com works fine, and the Brand manager will take care of any unsatisfactory feelings, if Izea suscribed to.

    There are dozen ways to monetize any CREATORS (including writers) Talents. One is to negotiate directly with CMOs, Brand managers, community and engagement managers. And what they will do first as in any selection they will try to assess the risk to work with such or such CREATORS by running a background check and internet screening, to define behaviors and compartmental aspects of their future collaborators.
    The marketplace is different, the CREATORS are users so any creator can sign up for free, stay, prosper or fail and leave. That is the law of the market.
    And in a market, marketplaces that do not pay anyone , have troubles with the brands that pay 50 000 $ per campaign and the creators that did the job. But of course SCAMS exist...so PLEASE: SHOW US Who they were ( because they closed by now) and who are still in Progress (meaning they actually dont pay anaybody) by the time we speak.

    @🐝 Fatima G. Williams As far as i am concerned and due to all elements i gathered and have on linkedin, my data are safe, LinkedIn is still fine and has it use. I have built an automated environment around it, so i can plan, schedule, and be completely independant from it. If they shut down all platform for any reasons, the collateral damage would be an absolute zero. Other players can replace them....but i feel bad for the recruiting community..what an awesome database in hands of hackers now.
    I think we talk to much of linkedin, we advertise them with our claims..let them evoluate or slowly die in piece, they have been business useful, now they are reinventing the wheel of google forms with their own. How can it be more cheaper than free...LOL.each time you mention linkedin in a post, its another hit in statistic, the more we compare and grow, the more we sustain them.
    Now one thing that can be done, is titleing our post with 3 keywords Taggin the same functions or benefits, then do a head to head benchmark and post statitics....the blue icon versus the Orange icon. What would still be on your smart devices favorite apps ?
    LinkedIn is for recruiter...let them screen us with their favorite HR***tool.
