Part 2 of my look at LinkedIn 'Pulse'.
My last Blog - Should you have your finger on the linkedIn 'Pulse' ? discussed some of the benefits of using LinkedIn's Pulse. I ran a little experiment between posts on Blogger and Pulse. Not massively scientific, more a quick check...
Any way - here's my (modest) results after a couple of weeks :
A couple of observations:
- Not a great deal in it with regards to the number of views.
- The LinkedIn post did very well on Pulse, understandably.
- The pulse posts achieved far more engagement, likes and comments.
While there was not a great deal in it with regards to the number of views, I should point out that I re-purposed a few of these blogs, the original blogger post have been around for up to 12 months.
To re-iterate a couple of the benefits...
1. I get to see who has liked and commented on my LinkedIn Pulse Posts, so following up is possible.
2. LinkedIn will have delivered my post to interested people outside of my network.
All things considered, I think these are encouraging results and given the benefits, I will continue sharing content on LinkedIn's Pulse, especially blogs on 'linkedIn', as ever the key to making this all worthwhile is to follow up.
