I would like to invite the readers of my blog to join the DEBS 2008 group on LinkedIn. Joining this group will allow you to find and contact other DEBS 2008 members on LinkedIn.

The goal of the DEBS 2008 group is to help members:

  • Reach other event processing people, sponsors and attendees of DEBS 2008.
  • Accelerate careers, business, and research opportunities through referrals from other DEBS 2008 group members.
  • Know more than a name – view rich professional profiles from fellow DEBS 2008 group members.

Please click here to join the group.

Yours sincerely, Tim

  1. re: LinkedIn group promotion and tips

    Tim,

    Congratulations on setting up a LinkedIn group!

    Now the hard part. How are you going to get new members and promote it? Let me share a few tips.

    1. Add your group to the MyLinkGroups LinkedIn Group Directory @ http://MyLinkGroups.com . MyLinkGroups contains hundreds of listings, making it #1 place to find and join a LinkedIn group. For group owners, the rich database gives you plenty of ways to describe your group. You can specify the group as open or closed, provide a long description and any membership restrictions, include your regular web address and contact info, specify a primary country and city for group activity, and more. It’s free to add your group at http://MyLinkGroups.com . No account or password is required.

    2. Be a Featured Group @ MyLinkGroups. MyLinkGroups offers a Featured Group program for even more promotion for group owners like you. Mention MyLinkGroups.com on your LinkedIn profile and group web site and you’ll be displayed twice as a Featured Group. It too is a free service. Follow the link at http://MyLinkGroups.com .

    3. Visit MyLinkWiki Group pages @ http://linkedin.pbwiki.com/MyLinkWikiGroupPages . The page ties together recommendations and ideas for group owners. In particular, visit the pages on managing and promoting a LinkedIn group and LinkedIn event tips.

    Best NetWORKing,
    Marc Freedman
