4- Joining Relevant Groups

One of the best sources to grab traffic from on LinkedIn are the mighty groups. There are almost 2 million groups on LinkedIn and almost 85% of the users belong to at least one of the groups. 
 
There are groups from sales marketing to internet marketing and you can surely find groups relevant to your niche where you can share your own stuff.

Find groups on LinkedIn regarding your own niche and don’t just look for how many users it has but instead look for the engagement on that group because the thing which is going to give you traffic is never the number of users but its the percentage of engagement. The more the engagement on a blog, the more chances of receiving more amount of real time visitors.

If you can’t find a group related to your interests, don’t just loose hope and leave this awesome network but go and create your own group, fill in your own connections in it. 
 
Make that group active, share content that the users want the most and you will even receive higher traffic from your own group than from the groups of others.

5- Write Engaging And Wanted Content

Off-course you need to publish appealing content on your LinkedIn profile and also in the groups. Lets Assume, if you’ve got  a Blogging related website and your connections are also with bloggers then why would you write any thing on Health? What Kind Of Sense You Possess?
 
Write about the content, you think your users are going to read and it should be related to your niche for free, host giveaways because these types of promotions are really great ways to get immense traffic and sometimes these promotions can also crash your servers.

Conclusion! 

So, what did you learn today? I did my best to explain how can you really grab traffic from LinkedIn. I hope it works for you and it will, if you use it correctly because its working for me.
