Even though I'm on vacation, I wanted you to know about the new Publisher Interface. YouTube Video: Check out the video here: Why Isnt It Working? First of all, know that Publisher doesn't seem to be working on Chrome. At least, it wasn't working on my Chrome. Publisher was there, but none of these features showed up. See image below. Also the main image wouldn't load. But have no fear! Just go to a different browser. It worked for me in Firefox and Safari (although another client had issues with Firefox.) What Publisher Looks Like When It Does Work! When you go to your homepage and click on "Write an article," LinkedIn will take you to the new LinkedIn Publisher. Add your main visual right up top. (Im not sure, but I think the 700 x 400... Read More

What’s Up LinkedIns Sleeve in Q1?

LinkedIn is coming up with some pretty cool new tools to help employees with the connection and engagement within their own companies on LinkedIn. A big thank you to Re/Tool Blog for reporting the latest and greatest! Intra Office Communication Tool These new intra-office tools will help employees not only to stay connected, but will encourage the sharing of contact info. It appears to be a CRM system similar to Salesforce, but embedded within LinkedIn. There is no word yet as to what this will cost and if it is in fact just a revamp of the current relationship between LinkedIn and Salesforce through the Sales Navigator tool. You can read more about this new tool here: http://recode.net/2015/01/13/upcoming-linkedin-products-connect-coworkers/ Redesigned Home Page... Read More

LinkedIn’s New Group Interface

LinkedIns New Group Interface LinkedIn has a new group interface that is MUCH easier to use then the old one. To find it simply go to Interests on you main menu bar and then click on Groups (just like you used to) Once there you'll notice a completely different layout. All your groups are listed across the top with stylish square icons. (To see them all you just click on view more.)

And you can post a discussion to a group of your choice right from this page as well. Just add your title, description, pick you group and decide if its a discussion, promotion or job.

I just got access today and wanted to share it with you ASAP . Here's a Short Video on how to use it: For those of you who read - here's how to do it: 1. You know you have LinkedIn Publisher when you have the little pen in your updates field. (Or you get the email telling you you now have it! 2. Create some new content- I recommend doing it in a word doc first to catch spelling errors - but don't add formatting, you can do that on LinkedIn Publisher 3. Paste into Publisher and add formatting, hyperlinks, images, bullets, etc. 4. Save it 5. PREVIEW IT (you'd be suprised the glitches that pop up!) 6. Post it... Read More

Not only will Who's Viewed help you connect and engage with prospects and leads, but the new statistics will show you how you are bing found (website, Google, Company Pages, etc.) and who is looking at you. You can also now sort your "viewers" by full name, partially anonymous and completely anonymous. ... Read More


The Downside of LinkedIn Contacts

By: Crystal Rademacher Monday May 13, 2013 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn News, Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Contacts, New on LinkedIn

LinkedIn Resources First let me state that I make huge fan of LinkedIn contacts. I highly recommend getting on the waiting list if you don't have it yet. That being said I have found 4 downsides to this new awesome feature. The first is that the only alphabetical listing is by first name only. Where is the old contacts screen listed people by last name which makes more sense to me. I am sure that this will soon be rectified. Since this came from the connected CRM system that alphabetically lists people by first name, I think it's just an oversight. I hope. The second one is a little bit more concerning. Again I think it's just an oversight or a glitch in the system from connected and CardMunch. You used to be able to tag your connections which you still can but you... Read More

LinkedIn Help Forum Giving Us New Answers

By: Viveka Monday March 25, 2013 comments Tags: LinkedIn, LinkedIn Expert, LinkedIn Tips, LinkedIn News, Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Answers, LinkedIn help, New on LinkedIn, LinkedIn Tools, LinkedIn Help Center, help forum

Did you know LinkedIn had a help forum? I was chatting with my new LinkedIn friend Huub Ritzema  about LinkedIn's help feature, and he reminded me about their "new" Help forum. Just in case you haven't checked it out yet, it's worth the gander. If you click on "Help Center" at the very very bottom of your profile on the left-hand side, it will take you to  LinkedIn's Help Center.  (The Help Center is also featured in the new UI).  Once you're in the Help Center you can click on Help Forum. From this help forum, you can search questions that have already been asked and answered, or even start your own discussion. So this is nothing like LinkedIn Answers where you could ask questions about anything business related. But at least you can ask questions to the forum... Read More

LinkedIn's Latest User Interface Changes Well, LinkedIn's done it again. Made a whole bunch of changes to its user interface. To be fair - most of the changes are on the menu bar.  But they are big changes! I have a video below that walks you through step-by-step. It was done on the fly and with my client's profile (and permission), but it'll tell you what you need to know if you to have the new user interface on LinkedIn. Video of LinkedIn's New Changes Homepage Tab The homepage is pretty much the same. Except now instead of the full LinkedIn logo, it's just the blue LinkedIn logo. But it takes you to the same place. Profile Tab Under 'Profile' you'll notice we've lost the drop down box. Meaning you have to edit and view your profile from the... Read More


InMail Attachments - Another Reason to Consider Upgrading Your LinkedIn Account

By: Viveka Friday February 1, 2013 comments Tags: LinkedIn, New on LinkedIn, InMail, Attaching documents, LinkedIn email

LinkedIn InMail  Attached Documents - This Could Be a Game Changer I just noticed when responding to an InMail today, that I could attach a document to my message. This might not seem like a big deal, but I really think it's a game changer on LinkedIn. Right now its's only available for InMails (and as far as I can tell, only available when you reply to an InMail) so if you've been considering upgrading your account, now might be the time! I checked messages - alas - its not available for a simple message. Just off the top of my head, here are some ways you can use it: A PDF of your brochure A PowerPoint presentation of your company product or service A white paper The chapter of your book A questionnaire The PDF of your artist...
