And LinkedIn Taketh Away…

Posted by on 23 Nov 2012 | Tagged as: Groups


LinkedIn appears to be pruning the “tree of all things LinkedIn” quite a bit lately.

Reader Jake commented on my January 2010 article that covered how to add an RSS feed to your group – it was a useful feature that deserved talking about.

But alas, while the feature isn’t gone completely, it’s no longer available…

Customize LinkedIn Invitations – If You Can!

One of the earliest bits of advice I gave LinkedIn users was to customize messages.

Top 10 Articles In 2011 On The LinkedIn Personal Trainer

Posted by on 29 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: About the Service, Applications, Connections, Entrepreneurial, Etiquette, Groups, Introductions, Jobs, Outside LinkedIn, Polls, Profiles, Recommendations, Search, Ways to Use LinkedIn


Let’s take a moment to ring out 2011 and look back at some of the most read articles for the year.

It’s been an interesting one with the release of The Revised LinkedIn Personal Trainer and the public stock offering from LinkedIn. (The later of which didn’t make much of an impact here…)

It’s hard to compare an article written in January against an article written in November – the one’s just been around a whole lot longer to attract attention. So I’ve used a bit of a weighting to try to factor that in.

And so – here they are – the top ten articles from 2011…

Posted by on 23 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: Applications, Groups


I’ve been regularly asked “Can I poll just my group on LinkedIn?” and have had to respond “no” – before today;-)

LinkedIn has linked the polling application to groups and now you can.

It’s not as nice as sliced break, but it’s better than it was…

Repost – Twelve Days Of LinkedIn

Posted by on 13 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: Applications, Connections, Etiquette, Groups, Introductions, Jobs, Profiles, Recommendations, Search


Since it happens to be 12 days before the big day, I thought it might be fun to point out the “Twelve Days of LinkedIn” video. Short, unaccompanied, and hopefully worth a chuckle or two…

To your continued success,

How Well Do You Really Know And Use LinkedIn?

Posted by on 03 Nov 2011 | Tagged as: About the Service, Connections, Groups, Introductions, Jobs, Profiles, Recommendations, Search, Ways to Use LinkedIn


Consider this challenge – four years ago it was easier to convince people that holding a training session on LinkedIn was a good idea. It was new, didn’t have any real help facilities, and wasn’t the most straight forward to understand.

But a couple months back I proposed an event that coincided with the release of The Revised LinkedIn Personal Trainer and was essentially rebuffed – the group members didn’t think they’d get much value from it.

And that’s why we came up with this quiz…

Jumpstarting Second Careers With LinkedIn

Posted by on 30 Aug 2011 | Tagged as: Connections, Groups, Jobs, Profiles, Recommendations, Search, Ways to Use LinkedIn


This topic blends a number of different questions that readers and seminar attendees have asked over the years, and seems to call out for a special article.

How should a user deal with multiple industries, age, locations and positions when they’re working with LinkedIn?

“Steve, can you help me merge those elements?”
