Linkedin has a new product called Elevate which is available by invitation only now and will be widely available by Q3. The company says:
“...when a LinkedIn member shares six pieces of content, on average, they receive six profile views and make two new connections, which helps them strengthen their professional brands. At the same time, the company they work for receives six job views, three Company Page views, and one Company Page follower, which helps them better hire, market, and sell.” And “LinkedIn Elevate features powerful analytics for employees and companies.”
I share almost daily on Linkedin and I know I get a constant stream of profile views, connection requests, endorsements, requests to share blog posts, sales approaches.
