This video helps you learn the benefits of sharing content as an employee of a company.
- Dell recently did something interesting. They asked their employees to start writing and sharing on LinkedIn. And they didn't tell them what to write about. They just said write about what you think would work on a professional network. So a number of employees started writing. And one guy, a middle-level manager at Dell, his dad had recently died. And he wrote a post about what he had learned about business from his father. That post blew up on LinkedIn. It did so well, that when we looked at the data, we saw that he was the second most-viewed profile at Dell, and the number one was Michael Dell. So you can have a very big impact with your writing. This is also really important if you are in PR or you have your own company, and you're thinking about how do you leverage writing and publishing on LinkedIn. By using your employees, and they don't have to be the top employees, they can be your voice. They can be the voice of the person in the cubicle down the hall. It could be someone who's just started or has been there for decades. But if people have something powerful to say, it's going to get noticed. And one of the things we've seen in the data is that employees have 10 times the following that a company has. And they have much higher engagement on their posts. People want to follow people. They don't want to follow brands. So if you can get people to share what's in their minds, what they're thinking, their insights, and they can do it in an authentic way, it's going to get attention.
