Finding success as a producer of content is often a hit-or-miss endeavor. With such a flood of content being produced by so many people on a constant basis, getting your name out there as an effective author can be incredibly challenging. Whether you’re writing for a personal or professional blog, strategically producing content for specific campaigns, or practicing engagement with pre-existing content, it’s important to contribute to the web in ways that will ultimately drive other users back to your own content.
While there’s no shortage of ways to get content on the internet, one of the most effective places to do so is on LinkedIn, specifically the Pulse. Millions of users read through the Pulse at a constant rate all day and are comfortable commenting, sharing, and engaging with content because the nature of the LinkedIn platform encourages it. This serves as an outstanding resource for authorship that holds considerable potential for broadening your audience, expanding the reach of your personal brand or the brand you represent, and giving your name the clickable appeal it needs to drive your overall internet visibility.
One of the most attractive aspects of using LinkedIn’s Pulse as a platform for exposure is the way the broad categories facilitate high visibility. In publishing something in a category on the Pulse, you expose your content to millions of users who are deliberately seeking a multitude of opinions and perspectives on the topic you’re writing about. In utilizing this platform, you can essentially take a megaphone and shout your brand across the web in ways that have real value for real people.
To put this method into practice, a good starting point would be to publish two articles on LinkedIn per week about things that aren’t necessarily related to the goods or services you’re promoting. In doing so, you can connect with people on a level that encourages interest in your content more naturally. If you’re constantly producing the same kind of content, you run the risk of having a spam-like image. But by participating in news-worthy discussions and weighing in on the topics that are getting the most attention, you can assert yourself as an authority of quality content.
