401203_trophy.jpgI’d like to thank everyone who participated in the Smart Ways to Use LinkedIn Group Blogging Project, and especially the people who stepped up and donated over $4,000 in prizes. I was overwhelmed by your generosity. It enabled the start of what I hope will become a valuable resource for all LinkedIn users:

I’ve taken the group blogging project entries and added several other blog posts and articles I’ve compiled – 29 entries and growing – all on how to use LinkedIn to your benefit. The link above is the permanent home to that, and I hope you will use it as a resource for yourself, for people you may invite to LinkedIn and to answer naysayers who think there’s no value in it.

Now, on to the prizes…

For starters, all participants will receive a signed copy of Andy Sernovitz’s Word of Mouth Marketing: How Smart Companies Get People Talking and the first ten entries will receive signed copies of Liz Ryan’s Happy About Online Networking.


In addition, the following people will receive:

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks again to all the prize donors! I’ll be contacting everyone over the next few days so you can work out delivery.

Don’t forget to bookmark the compilation – Smart Ways to Use LinkedIn – and share it on your blog, with your friends, etc. AND… if you missed the opportunity to participate in this one, don’t worry — stay tuned for Round 2!

P.S. – I tried to get everyone’s logo in… if I didn’t, it’s nothing personal…either you didn’t have one or it was too hard to extract from your site.

  1. Thanks. It’s always nice to “win”, BUT I think the real winners are:

    (1) all the people got new ideas;

    (2) all the people who showed themselves to be the generous experts they are; AND

    (3) YOU for creating a new paradigm. (I call it “rally a group hug” with prizes.)

    Even a grizzled big fat old turkey, like me, learned some “new tricks”, as well as some interesting new ideas.

    Only time will tell if those ideas “were actioned”, but they are out there forever for the taking.

    And, in some sense, there are future readers who have “won” by having a “blazed path” to follow in exploiting LinkedIn.

    Thanks for pulling this together. Do it again next month? 🙂 fjohn

  2. Scott:
    Thanks for organizing this project. In just a few days, you called for, collected, categorized and published a bank of valuable and creative LinkedIn insights. Congratulations to you on this successful project and to all of the winners for being part of this group. Appreciate the opportunity to participate and hope to meet you at Blog World.
