Once a great tool in itself LinkedIn groups has now gone mobile
Once upon a time Groups in LinkedIn were a great tool and used by many of us for various reasons, then they seem to lose their priority on the platform and activity dropped off quite dramatically.
Well I am pleased to say recently that has changed and I am now able to access groups from my phone, and in the one’s I manage I can invite, discuss and do all the management tasks.
This means that I can engage with the groups again and their members.
Tactics you can use
This also means that some of the tactics I used to use are again available to me and my clients. I can show them how to connect with targets that are not in their reach via the normal connection request.
There are a few other tricks that I use, but now I can share them with the 3 groups I run to give them added value from being in the 2 older groups or the recent one I set up for my LinkedIn clients only.
How to access on a mobile
The groups can be from your feed page by clicking the 3 dots/lines that are in the top right corner, where you will see them below your pinned items and hashtags. You can access the normal list by clicking see more followed by see all, or just click on the one you are after.
I know it will take a while to get the momentum going but let us be in it now and reap the benefits of LinkedIn Groups
