Linkedin Engagement Group

Hi everybody, welcome to this Linkedin Engagement Group.
My name is Vyasa, and I’ll help to moderate this group.
We will use WhatsApp as a means to connect with each other.
  1. Benefit for the post creator – To increase the organic reach of our posts/articles, by means of commenting or liking the post. Working alone, it creates fewer likes, and lower reach.
  2. Benefit for the commenter – as you post comments and/or likes – your reach also naturally increases, as your activities are shown on your network, boosting your personal reach.
As a guide – here is an article on the science behind how a group like this can create more engagement for each other, and more traction for posts. –
How it works
After you have created a post in Linkedin, share the Linkedin post link with the WhatsApp group – where the rest of the group can help to like or comment on the linkedin post, to generate engagement. This will increase your Linkedin reach by 5 to 10 times, compared to if you just post it on our own.
Ground rules in the WhatsApp group
  1. As everyone here is quite busy – let’s try to keep it only about work or business. Which means no ‘good morning’ greetings, motivational posts, or ‘one to one’ discussions on this group. No politics, race based or anything that can incite. We are bigger than this.
  2. Let’s not have expectations of business or referrals with each other, to keep this light and easy. (But I’m sure, some will happen naturally, as we get to know each other’s business better)
  3. Posting guidelines : not more than 4-5 articles/posts a week, and also max of 1 article/post a day
How to make this group effective for yourself
  1.  In the group, there will be some people we know, and some we don’t , do add them to your network, so that you could comment and like. Better still get to know them through their linkedin profile.
  2. Try to post something related to what you are interested in, at least once a week. Better still if it’s regarding some of your work, or even your thoughts – in an article.  Posting a few times a week would be even better.
  3. Take time to comment on the post/ article shared by the group. The first one hour is important as linked in treats the engagement during the first hour very highly in their algorithm to spread out your post. So if you are very busy – try to at least like the post first.
  4. Share the link of your post with our group in WhatsApp – and give a brief note about the link.
  5. The members in this group are all influencers in their own right – Business owners, speakers, trainers, coaches, etc.
  6. To make it interesting and create more engagement, we can ask simple questions as comments to the post to create a bit of interaction, which leads to more engagement when the post owner answers – The linkedin algorithm likes banter or interaction.
  7.  If you don’t have time, just hit like first, and try to comment later. Within the first one hour, is best. the algorithm uses the first 1 hour to test if the article is of use.
