Share Your Vocal Stories on a LinkedIn Group
Invitation to Vocal writers to join and share stories on LinkedIn
Writers need readers.
Readers look for engaging, entertaining and informative writers.
The bridge between writers and readers can be established by creating meaningful visibility.
To create visibility, I use multiple social and professional networks.
In this post my focus is on a professional network called LinkedIn.
I have an affinity for LinkedIn. My strong presence on LinkedIn brought many benefits. Using the platform since its inception, I gained substantial followers and collaborators.
Collaboration among writers and readers is essential. Therefore, I not only participate in several groups, but I also own and facilitate collaboration groups.
To this end, I created a new LinkedIn group called "Vocal Writers and Stories".
The purpose of the group is to bring Vocal writers with LinkedIn membership on a single place and create a virtual collaboration environment.
We can meet new writers and become friends. Writers can share their stories and readers can follow them easily.
The purpose of this story is to invite Vocal writers to participate in this LinkedIn group.
You can find this initiative useful and beneficial because LinkedIn groups are excellent facilities to share content and collaborate with other professionals.
You may ask why LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is an ideal networking platform for professionals like writers. The LinkedIn platform offers over 500 millions of users globally. By sharing links to your Vocal articles on LinkedIn groups, you can attract new readers to your profile and overall Vocal site.
Collaborating in a moderated (private) LinkedIn group can be beneficial to the productivity of writers. I ensure that our collaboration platforms are facilitated professionally. We encourage only good online behavior in these professional groups.
It will be great to create visibility to the stories of writers using our collective LinkedIn networks.
Apart from sharing links with others, LinkedIn posts can help us create multiple backlinks for our stories. The more backlinks, the faster the indexing by the search engines.
As you may know, LinkedIn has a very high domain authority for Google. Content published on LinkedIn can be indexed by the search engines faster than other platforms. I tried it and proved it.
