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.

LinkedIn has provided a facility to add posts from this blog to the news section of the B2B Centre LinkedIn group, using the RSS feed.
I don't know what would happen if we could add news items from LinkedIn to this blog - chaos?
There is a benefit of course. As with most of this web2.0, social media stuff it means that you can re-use content lots of times by pushing out via different channels. That makes it somewhat easier to make a splash on the internet and make people think that you are more active than you really are.
Blogs, twitters, RSS, social network status fields etc. etc. are usually indexed by search engines too. So if you add links then you start to increase your inbound link count.

Anybody who wants their first taste of social networking could do worse than join the B2B Centre's group on the business oriented networking site LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com). Register online and then go to the group page to sign-up.
There is a members Commercial Thread where people can promote their businesses (most recently Homestay Live and Learn), Stuart Steele of StuWebb posts a topic of the week and B2B staff provide insights into our ongoing support activity.
Oh and yes we are on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/b2b_centre) if you succumb to the current wave of publicity.
