I help to manage a number of Social Business sites in LinkedIn.
If you're interested in knowing which they are - drop me a line?
As you will see, I have started to carry "sponsored" links. My policy is simple: if I like it - I'll tell you about it.
I won't carry links to anything I don't consider worthy. Sometimes I get paid for these links.
If you'd like your company to be featured here - drop me a line and we'll make an arrangement. Painless.
Since recognising the power of Social Media, I have worked studiously to understand the "influence" and "reach" aspects of this phenomenal movement of communication. Here are a few of the measures that I use to rate my progress.
We're getting several hundred visitors every week to the site now.
I can track their behaviour - and many of them are checking member profiles frequently.
Make sure your profile is up to date and interesting if you want click-throughs to your other places.
There were more than 100 out-bound clicks in the past few days alone.
The simplest way to make sure folks can know about you is to use your LinkedIn profile. Either cut and paste it or simply link to it, would be my suggestion.
Alternatively, just make sure that there's a url linkage there, which takes them to some place you want them to go!?
Dubit is a well-known story in the Youth Marketing scene. I've been involved in the background for 10 years now, though recently, more actively so. The services side of the company has top level connections throughout commerce, helping with research and marketing with top UK, Euro and Global brands.
The company had the very first "virtual chat room" way back in time. Now that technology approach has matured into a world-class platform for building Virtual Worlds for Social Gaming, with such names as Monty Python, BBC, and Diesel using the company to construct their environments.
This has always been an attractive company, with its youth heritage and some first-class positioning. Now it is poised to grow at 100% pre annum for the next few years.
RAH is a recent project for me, where I've mentored the leader for the past 18 months or so. He's now got a good young company with a new joint venture in SW development for real-estate and a good all round "apps engine" which we thought up together. There's a way to go yet, though I'm in no doubt that Rob Heeley is someone worth watching. He's a bit too MS in his thinking for my liking though :-)
