LinkedIn Tips, The Missing Glove, And O.J. Simpson

“The glove doesn’t fit.” – O.J. Simpson

How would you like to be in 5 places at once.  Many of us feel like our to-do list is longer than hours in the day.  Lots of people struggle to fit blogging into their regular routine because they simply don’t know how to make the most of their time doing it.

Squeeze the juice out of your blog, and let it work for you.

“Were you on LinkedIn yesterday at 930pm O.J.?”  
“No, I wasn’t there.”
“I’d like to believe you but I saw you posting in 5 different groups Mr. Juice.”

If you follow the steps below, you’ll find out he was actually telling the truth…

There is more than one way to prove you were not in a location that claiming that bloody glove doesn’t fit…jokes aside, let’s dive in here.

I’m going to share a strategy that will allow you to share your blog in 5+ groups on LinkedIn

Without showing up and investing hours in the groups…

Without showing up in one group.

Without even going to LinkedIn.com

When someone asks, “were you on LinkedIn today” – you can honestly tell them, “NO” – the glove doesn’t fit…I wasn’t there.

The way you make the most of blog is to use online tools to your advantage.  The tool I’m talking about today is a plugin for wordpress called DiggDigg.  This is a social sharing plugin that you can see….

if you look to your left [if on mobile the floating bar may not show up]

What you want to do is look for the LinkedIn share button there

 

The idea is that after you write a blog post, you visit your own article, and click this LinkedIn share button.

Next, this window pops up…and you’ll basically do 5 quick things

 

check the box to “Post to groups”

Enter the groups you want to share to, you can enter as many as you want…just make sure the content you are posting would be of value to those in the group.

Enter a great title or question and details about what you are posting…as you can see it includes a link with an image also

What I wrote here was something like “I just wrote this article, if you have any extra tips I’ll add them, give you credit, with a link and all that jazz [which I actually do fulfill on]

Last step, click “Share”

And you’ll see this fancy confirmation box come up…and you are done.

 

You’ve successfully posted your article in 5, 10, 20 or 30 groups at one time…with a few clicks.

And you were never at the scene of the “time wasting crime” of wasting too much time on LinkedIn.  Now I do recommend you take time to go into the groups and engage with the members…hopefully you did some of that first.

Now you know how to post in 5 places at once, without even going there

Where are you going to drive that white Ford Bronco around with all that extra time you have…ok, enough OJ jokes.

I squeezed enough “Juice” out of that one.

If this was helpful for you, look to your left and click on the LinkedIn share button and try sharing this post with a few of your LinkedIn groups now…try it out. Just tell them “Just found out about this cool way to share great stuff on LinkedIn, check it out”
