The National B2B Centre's LinkedIn group, which was set up to provide a community area for the sharing of information, for answering queries and problems and for members to promote themselves, has now reached the milestone membership of 250.
Gareth Edwards, the Centre's eMarketing Specialist, suggests that there lessons to be learned in the way that the group works for lots of businesses.
"Our experience is that you have to give Social Media tools such as LinkedIn and LinkedIn groups plenty of time to gain momentum. Group numbers started to take-off after a couple of months of promotion and then continued to grow quite quickly; mainly through referrals. And remember you have to manage what's going on by posting new material and answering comments as quickly as possible"
The B2B Centre Group has two sub-groups. One focuses on SEO, while the most recent one is an "Ask the B2B Centre" area where group members can post questions and queries that we will do our best to answer.
