How do you contribute to a LinkedIn Group?

Once you’ve chosen and joined the LinkedIn Groups, first thing’s first – do your research.  Take time to familiarise with the people in the group, the content group members are sharing and what type of questions are being asked.


A sure fire way to strengthen your network and build relationships in groups, is to share and comment on relevant content.  When you share content others are interested in, the likelihood of connecting with these people increases – as opposed to just hitting ‘connect’.


What can you share in a LinkedIn Group?

1: Share your expertise: If you can answer questions others have asked, why not contribute to the conversation and share your expertise? LinkedIn Groups are communities for like-minded people, so make sure you ask, as well as answer questions.

2: Post articles and ask questions. If you’ve read an interesting article or blog, why not share with the Group members and ask a question related to the article.

3: It’s not all about you!  Don’t over promote – your goal when contributing to groups is to build relationships – not to promote yourself or what you’re doing.

4: Connect! Once you’ve interacted with someone in your Group and want to connect, don’t forget to send them a direct invitation to connect. Make the invite personal and remind them of your interaction within a specific group.

5: Don’t forget about other channels. Most people are looking to connect with like-minded people and are open to extending your relationship across other social media channels.  If you’ve been interacting with someone in a LinkedIn Group, why not find them on Twitter or their Facebook business page?
