LinkedIn has grown exponentially over the years, and many professionals have adopted it as a go-to tool for exposure and connect with other professionals from across the globe. LinkedIn offers enormous opportunities which users can leverage to amplify their work or get noticed by industry players who can be the connection to career growth and better opportunities.
Now, LinkedIn did not become such a useful tool just by itself; there are thousands of great people who have become thought leaders and exceptional in their professional endeavours by continually providing value to the professional community. They are referred to as Influencers, thus the consideration of 5 great things really great LinkedIn influencers do.
LinkedIn Influencers support their followers:
One of the things most LinkedIn influencers do is that they always offer to help their followers; always sharing their experiences, knowledge and technical know-how so their followers can gain deep insights into their world as a thought leader. An excellent example in this regard is Brigette Hyacinth who has millions of followers look up to her to provide insights on workplace dynamics, Employee-Employer relationship management, Human Resources and so many other areas that impact their career.
LinkedIn Influencers help their followers to grow and find new opportunities:
Great influencers on the LinkedIn platform take it upon themselves to help others discover themselves or to find new opportunities. I have experienced so many scenarios whereby a “call-out” by a LinkedIn Influencer would result in several interview appointments for a job seeker. So many authors or professional service providers have recently witnessed a spike in page views and incremental sales just because a LinkedIn Influencer decided to help them grow. Oleg Vishnepolsky is one of the great Influencers doing fantastic work for the LinkedIn community.
LinkedIn Influencers provide honest feedback:
Gary Vaynerchuk is one of my favourite influencers on LinkedIn because he gives candid feedback on business and many other areas of professional life. His words will hit you in the face with a succinct reality that will make you double your hustle. Following Gary keeps you on your toes such that you don’t want to end up being just an average.
LinkedIn Influencers validate your skills and experience:
One of the great things LinkedIn Influencers do is to help you validate your skills and knowledge when it is needed. As job seekers or looking for new opportunities, you need Leaders who can help you validate your skillset and recommend you to recruiters. Victor Sonde has been an irreplaceable Influencer in this regard; sharing tips via his #VicTip posts and videos, helping people discover themselves and find new career paths, offering Agile Bootcamp and Business Analysis training with verifiable work experience via WayMaker Digital Academy, and also maintaining a robust and value-driven community on Slack and WhatsApp Community of practice.
LinkedIn Influencers share great content:
LinkedIn is a right place for excellent, and this is made possible through the fantastic work of LinkedIn Influencers. LinkedIn Articles has become a repository of useful content serving millions of audiences across the globe. A perfect example, in this case, is Neil Patel. From blog posts, LinkedIn articles, videos and so much more, Neil has turned around the world of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Growth Hacking and Digital Marketing in general.
