Episode 3 – How to make the LinkedIn algorithm work for your posts today

I joined LinkedIn in 2003 and founded and managed a number of groups from 2009 to date. They are both private (unlisted) and public (listed) with 4,000 – 30,000+ members). 

This background provides me with an above average insight into LinkedIn as it includes bridging both the recruiting and business development services they offer as a user and customer.

It also means I have not told you everything about my LinkedIn work, the reality is that I am more interested in you listening to this episode, getting to know a little more about the LinkedIn algorithm, picking up a few tips and then using them in your way to develop your business.
