Have you seen these newer features?
I attended a webinar yesterday about using LinkedIn for business growth and I learned about a couple of newer features that may or may not be available for you. They are something for which you will want to be on the look-out. Who knows, you may already be using them!
Newer Feature #1 – Ring my bell!
How many of you thought of the Anita Ward Song – Ring My Bell? LinkedIn has a relatively new feature that allows you to click on a bell on a company profile or a personal profile and you will get that news in your feed right away. You need to either follow or be connected with the person to see the bell. You can see all posts or tops posts depending upon whether it is marked or solid. You won’t be able to see it on your own profile.
This is not 100% effective. You should see in your notifications the posts from the people / companies you choose to ring their bell. It is recommended by other experts to keep it to 10 bells to avoid too much clutter.
Newer Feature #2 – Schedule Posts in LinkedIn
My team uses a scheduler tool to help us plan our week of posts for our clients. These are allowed by LinkedIn where lead generation tools are disallowed and you may lose your profile. LinkedIn now allows you to schedule a post natively inside of LinkedIn. If you need to schedule from your phone while you are out on the fly, this is available on the top right corner of my Android phone.
