I Monopolize LinkedIn

That’s the message I received from Kathy Bush in West Palm Beach who has a profile on Linkedin. For anyone who hasn’t heard of LinkedIn, here’s what their website says. LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 120 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals.

Here’s Kathy’s Message:

Thank you for your input you monopolize linkedin I don’t know you don’t you think it’s overkill?

It’s been a while just received a call for a custom order of hand cream. Wow!!! So excited.

I love Lucy!!

I was stunned at first by the comment. I honestly didn’t know what she was talking about. Then I read the message again. She’s referring to my tweet which showed up on my LinkedIn profile.” It’s been a while just received a call for a custom order of hand cream. Wow!!! So excited.”

For those of you who don’t know, when I first started my business it was making custom hand creams and lotions. People could design their natural skin care products with the ingredients to tailoring to their skins needs. Someone I made an order for last year, called me up and asked if I could make him an order of lotion. I was thrilled and posted the news on my Twitter, which showed up Linkedin.

There are a lot of individuals and business on Linkedin who have their Twitter connected to their profile. I’m on Linkedin twice a week. When I do post on Linkedin it’s in reference to my blog about the life of a startup business owner which I have received positive feedback from other small businesses owners who are going through challenges and goals so. I don’t post every day or every other hour as some do.

I have a great time on Twitter. But I don't feel the need to be on there 24/7 and blasting tweets every 2 minutes about by product, use my service. I want to share information about my passion natural skin care. Even on my Facebook page and email marketing. It's information then a shout out about Wild Beauty products.

I enjoy Twitter. I follow the 80/20 rule. Eighty percent of the time I’m give information about natural skin care tips, different uses of natural oils and butters such as aloe butter. In fact this week, I tweeted about skin care regimens from around the world. On Wild Beauty’s Facebook it’s skin care regimens from around the world week. I post a new regimen every day.  The other twenty percent is promotion about Wild Beauty and our products, as I stated earlier 3-4 hours no more a day.

So I thought about it. Do I really monopolize Linkedin? Do I over kill? The answer is NO! But I do want to thank Kathy Bush for her message. I have it printed out to remind me that whatever I post on social media not just LinkedIn it’s positive, beneficial, informative mixed with a little humor and fun.
