LinkedIn is the world's largest professional social network with over 300 million users managing their professional identities, building and engaging with their professional networks. It is a place where users can discover professional opportunities, business deals, new ventures and a place where to get the latest news, inspiration, and insights from professional people.
Based from my experience with LinkedIn - I found it that the site is not only good for creating professional profiles. It is also one of the best places where a writer can promote his products and other services that he offers to his online audience. Both the writer and the publishing sites that first have published his original and high quality articles would enjoy the benefits from using LinkedIn.
It is already nine years have passed from the time I had joined LinkedIn that started in 2006. At first I was reluctant to use the site to share to other users what I had published online because I thought that LinkedIn is created only for people of highly professionals. However, that idea I have has changed when I received the invitation to write for LinkedIn. Of course, it surprised me and without any doubts I accepted it.
LinkedIn has a pulse section that caters a user's original articles either reviews about anything, news and other blogging items. So, bloggers and other types of online writers can use the pulse to showcase for their high quality columns or blog pieces. This is the place where online writers can promote and share their products and other services that they offer to their online audience in the form of writing pieces, photos, videos, etc.
There are hundreds of online groups available on LinkedIn created officially by its users - from technology group down to content writers group, online writers group, blog and blogging groups, gardening groups, freelancers groups, journalists groups, poetry group, natures group and many more. These LinkedIn groups are accepting members who are willing to share their best and interesting ideas with the other members.
There are hundreds of merchants and advertisers who are happily promoting their products and services on LinkedIn. These merchants and advertisers are also looking for people or affiliates who are willing to help them promote their products online. They target people who are experienced on online blogging and who owns blog sites or websites.
Every day there are hundreds of posted new jobs from employers or companies from the four corners of the globe. They are looking for professionals and qualified people for the job hiring. They are using LinkedIn to advertise their companies' job vacancies for both online and offline job opportunities - from SEO experts down to content writers, online writers, ghost writers, journalists, skilled workers, products promoters and other imaginable available jobs vacancies.
LinkedIn is also used by hundreds of online job seekers. There are thousands of LinkedIn members who are willingly updating their LinkedIn professional profiles with photos, school attended, work experiences and other interesting things of achievements as to add flavors for their best published professional profiles on the site - hoping to get hired by the interested employers.
LinkedIn does not pay for the articles published on their site but it is one of the best places I know where to spread out our writing hobby too. Aside from the social networks and other bookmarking sites to market and to share our awesome articles - LinkedIn is also open for this purpose too. And to think that LinkedIn has more than 300 million users - who can tell us that 10 to 20 percent of these users would be attracted to read our write-ups.
So far there are about 12 articles I published on LinkedIn. Some of them were already published on some of the sharing revenue sites I am also writing. I just re-wrote them with new titles, introductions including the article body. All these published articles on LinkedIn bear my authorship with the backlinks leading to the websites that first published them.
