As a group owner or manager, you can build a community where like-minded professionals with similar interests and goals can connect, learn, and grow. LinkedIn released a series of guides and notes on how to maximise groups engagement. Have a look at these strategies for building the foundation of a dynamic and lively community.

  • Who should join?
  • What are the requirements for membership validation?
  • How should members use the group?
  • What are the rules and regulations for discussions?
  • How will the rules be upheld?

Develop a conversation strategy

  • What topics are participants interested in discussing?
  • How often will your team post and/or comment in the group?
  • What daily, weekly, or monthly themes will be relevant to your group?
