LinkedIn Publishing Platform

The platform is a great tool for someone trying to find a job. I have personally used the platform to help me get my current position and will use it again once I am back in the job market. There are some people out there who claim the platform is useless. In my opinion, if you see the LinkedIn platform as useless then you don't really understand how helpful it can be in the digital age of 2017.

Tumblr

It's well suited to promote retail, restaurant, and music venues. It can give potential clientele a sense of not only of your products, but the atmosphere and ambiance that your business reflects as well.
I do feel that it is limited in the relevance that it has to certain types of businesses, and like many social media platforms there is more quantity and less quality on Tumblr. However, this could be an asset in that your particular business's Tumblr could have an opportunity to stand out from the crowd.
Before using Tumblr to promote your business, its key to see if your clientele and the type of clientele that you are trying to attract would respond positively to Tumblr, otherwise it would be a waste of employee time.

Pros

LinkedIn Publishing Platform

  • I like how it lets you publish long form content.
  • I love how it lets me copy and paste words and links from my Wordpress website, and it all comes over without me having to reinsert the links.

Tumblr

  • Intuitive ease of use. It was easy to set up and get the account running immediately.
  • Simplicity. Adding text, pictures and video was easy.
  • Look & Feel. For the low maintenance approach we were aiming for, we were surprised that the site actually looked pretty slick.

Cons

LinkedIn Publishing Platform

  • I was never a fan of the way people connect on the platform. For example, if I want to connect with someone I have to at least know them or their email address. There are situations whereas I want to connect with people whom I do not know.
  • The platform is slowly turning into Facebook. More and more I see people posting things that do not belong. Linkedin is supposed to be a professional platform, I wish they would be more clear about that. People can and do post whatever they want, however some kind of reminder to people who use the platform would be nice.

  • Trigger tags should be a thing - Many people on tumblr are vulnerable to certain content, and it can be hard to avoid it. Maybe some of these tags would help restrict content.
  • An in-line gif creator would be pretty cool.
  • Verify celebrity accounts. I haven't looked for one in a while, but I remember that being a concern.

Because of its ease of use - both on desktop and mobile - and the perks of being able to schedule a post for future release, Tumblr is a tool that we plan to continue using in the long term. Despite feeling like a primairly one-sided tool, it can also start conversations online, which is something for which we are always striving.

Tumblr is an easy to use tool. If you're looking for a simple platform that isn't complicated Tumblr works well. There are even ways to embed it to a company website.

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Publishing Platform

The problem with Facebook for Business is that it is on Facebook. Facebook is a great way for a company to brand themselves. However a companies content is surround by other content that is often not professional. For example, if someone follows my company on Facebook and scrolls down their timeline and sees my post, it is intertwined in their feed with their Facebook friends. This could lead to your content being mixed in with others. With Linkedin, it is solely supposed to be used for professionals. People are not supposed to (even though some do) post things that may be deemed offensive. That is not the case with Facebook.

Tumblr is a light-weight alternative to Instagram if the user does not prefer using filters or editing the images too much. Twitter however, has better features compared to Tumblr and a higher user base, but posts on Twitter are short-lived as people tend to move on after a while. Tumblr can provide long-term exposure with posts.

Return on Investment

LinkedIn Publishing Platform

  • I think it raises the awareness of my SuperStar Careers brand. When I talk to people offline, they often tell me they read my articles and can give specific examples.
  • I've had a few prospects reach out to me. In the past 2 years, I'd guess I've had up to 10 people reach out to me for a assistance.
