13 Brands Using LinkedIn Company Page Features the Right Way
Back in November, I set out to write a post to highlight businesses that were using LinkedIn's company page features effectively. Needless to say, I couldn't find enough examples to create a compelling post, so in my dismay, what I actually ended up writing was, "11 Reasons Your LinkedIn Company Page Sucks." What can I say? I was a little bitter and, frankly, slightly disappointed in the social media marketers of the world. We recently reported that, in a study of the over 5,000 inbound marketers where we pitted LinkedIn against Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn proved to be the most effective social media channel for lead generation -- 277% more effective, in fact. As a marketer, particularly if you're in the B2B game, how could you not leverage that awesome lead generation potential? Well, it's been several months now, and I wanted to give you LinkedIn marketers out there another chance. Blog RSS Feed Let's get a few low-hanging fruit features out of the way first.

How To Use LinkedIn To Improve Organic Visibility I was recently doing some link building for a client and noticed that a LinkedIn profile for their top competitor appeared in the listing of strong incoming links in one of the review tools we use.

The State Of Social Customer Service [with Infographic] Some of you have experienced customer service from brands via social media. Of course with different outcomes. And some of you have never taken advantage of this medium to get product issues solved. Sure, I’ve had my share too. Of course you can also run into issues with companies like Time Warner Cable that will completely ignore you no matter how nasty your tweets are. Social media has proven to be a great vehicle to ensure customer satisfaction over the last few years. But what is the current state of customer service in social media? What’s clear in this infographic, is how even tough we’re slowly starting to turn more to social media vehicles to address our issues with companies, the traditional platforms are still very important and, despite the clear advantages for these companies to establish this type of connection with consumers, 60% don’t even care about responding to these direct messages. Today we’re looking at something similar in customer service. Thank you.

Climb the staircase to self-transcendence: Jonathan Haidt at TED2012 Photo: James Duncan Davidason Author and UVA psychology professor Jonathan Haidt kicks off his TED2012 talk with a provocative question: “how many of you think of yourselves as religious?” Some people raise their hands, but not so many. Another question: “Do you think of yourselves as spiritual in any shape or form?” Haidt is making the case that one of the main reasons people feel they have some sort of spiritual life is the search for self-transcendence. Climbing a staircase to greater meaning has been used as such a concept a lot over the years. But awe can come from weird places too: for instance, War. So now the million-dollar question: is this so-called staircase a feature of our evolutionary design, or is it a bug? So what of free riders, those who’ll merrily come along to exploit the work of others? Haidt has at least a suggestion of an answer, presented in a special 3-minute video bonanza at the end of the talk. Steven Pinker: I’m not persuaded by group selection. JH: No.
