Could you be primed to give your LinkedIn Publications a boost?
Perhaps you are set to give your Publications a second life?
If you have never tried this, then this could be a gem of a tip. If you already figured this out and are already regularly searching for yourself on twitter - well, how very vain of you - sorry, not much for you here!
I recently did a twitter search on my own name (yes, very vain of me, I know) - no not my handle '@DrGarySharpe', but my actual name: 'gary sharpe'. I found a tome of missed opportunities. Lots of reader's twitter shares of my own LinkedIn Publications which have no mention of my handle. These were missed because the handle is what generates notifications to the user. Indeed, my name is not necessarily even in the tweets themselves - the search includes what's in the link summaries or twitter cards too it seems.
In the multi-media post I give two consecutive examples. One of them (by shear chance, honestly, features +Andrij Harasewych
Did I say "missed opportunity"? Not really. A banked opportunity.
Because if you, like me, didn't know about this trick, then you have a great opportunity to do this:
1. Favorite and Retweet all of these you find.
2. Reply and give a thankyou to the tweeter.
3. Retweet and favorite any replies to your replies.
This essentially gives your Publications new exposure as well as raising both your own and the tweeter's profiles with each others followers.
Of course, it's not just LinkedIn Publications, I've found missed twitter shares from MosaicHub, Google+ and my blogger blog too.
Try it yourself and let me know if you get a good boost from this tip too.
