After all, you are involved in conversations across LinkedIn day after day…especially if you’re getting results.
That’s why LinkedIn makes it easy for you to start those conversations, share knowledge with other LinkedIn members and ultimately increase your visibility.
How does it work?
It works similar to FaceBook mentions. Here are the 3 easy steps to mention a contact or company on LinkedIn and increase your visibility:
1. Begin by typing the name of a connection or a company in your status update box or a comment field on the Homepage.
2. Select someone from the list of your connections that appear in the drop-down, complete your status or comment and post it.
BONUS TIP: Choose to post your update to LinkedIn or Twitter and LinkedIn to further increase your visibility beyond just your connections.
3. The person or company you mentioned will receive a notification alerting them that they have been mentioned.
In addition to first-degree connections, you can also mention other LinkedIn members engaged in conversations in the comment sections of posts on the LinkedIn Homepage.
Mentions make it easier for you to start conversations with your network while also enabling you to respond in real-time when someone begins a conversation with you…all of which, when done effectively, increase your visibility!
