LinkedIn Groups Traffic

Occasional Contributor

Prior to LinkedIn turning off the API integration with HS and other social media mgmt tools, we were used to seeing a large number of our LinkedIn traffic come through LinkedIn Groups. Since the automated feature was inactivated, we have turned to manual posts in LinkedIn groups and have used the custom URL builder to track traffic. Has anyone else done this? If so, how have your traffic numbers been? Have they gone down, up, remain relatively the same?

 

Thanks,

Svet

@Svet222 can you share a little more insight/detail on trends that you have seen? I'd be interested to know also the value you see in Linkedin content comparted to other social network channels. Thanks!

Unfortunately that becomes a full time job - and I purchased Hubspot to automate this task.  I have seen a reduction in overall traffic now - I have posted a few manually but again it becomes a time factor.  Need to find an NEW automation process for this!

On 6/30/17, there was a change preventing postings to groups from Hubspot. Has anyone found a workaround so that we can post to Linkedin Groups from HubSpot?

 

Thanks!

Amy
