LinkedIn Lectures

Throughout 2017 I delivered a total of 22 webinars on the topic of LinkedIn. I named the series LinkedIn Lectures and I gave them away for free. Depending on when you read this, I will have stopped the webinars in December 2017 and I am winding down all my LinkedIn training as to be honest I have stopped being really passionate about LinkedIn. My passion is Whiteboard Animation and Storytelling.

But I have great news, I recorded all the lectures (15 hours worth) and I am sharing the course here via two options, the choice is yours. If you wish to grab it for free, be my guest, if you think it's worth a bit, invest just a little to get you to take action. Either way I hope you enjoy it and be sure to leave a review too.  Thank you so much! 🙌

A bit more about me...

Michael de Groot - @stayingaliveuk

Michael de Groot - @stayingaliveuk

Great to be connected on LinkedIn. 

A bit more about me: I have lived in the UK now for over 40 years!  My father was Dutch and my mother was Anglo-Indian. My father was posted to London with work and he was given a choice.  It was either the US Virgin Islands or London.  Well, my Mum had a very English upbringing hence the 'Anglo' in front of Indian and of course she chose London.  Don't get me wrong I now love the UK and it's my home and I bet there isn't as much rain in the  US Virgin Islands.  I did visit it many years ago and it's gorgeous. (I know of course that after the 2017 hurricanes it may look a bit battered for now and hopefully she will get back to her beauty over time).

I hope all is great in your world and wish you success with all your projects and I look forward to keeping in touch.

Facebook groups vs LinkedIn groups

I created this great infographic and wanted to share it with you.

I decided to compare Facebook groups vs LinkedIn groups, but have done it in a fun way.

What do you think of LinkedIn groups? Do you use them, do they add value to your content marketing or LinkedIn engagement? I am collecting views, so feel free to add comments at the end of the article. The article lives on LinkedIn.

Here’s the link:

Do you have any articles, you are looking for some discussion on? Ping them my way!

Storytelling eBook

You probably realise by now that I love people’s stories and wrote a short eBook on why storytelling is so important.

I like to share it with my more recent connections on LinkedIn, so feel free to download it via this link.

No list sign-up by the way, just a straight download.

It includes that great Infographic shown above, which illustrates how storytelling affects the brain.

The Infographic has been a big hit.

In the meantime I Iook forward to seeing and reading your stories too.

'Share Your Story' Podcast

I started my own podcast recently, it's called 'Share Your Story' - a business owner biography, their story so far.

My purpose is to help inspire others to start their own business or indeed grow their business. Listening to real live examples is a great way to get inspired I feel.

I have had some great guests already, so if you are interested in having a listen to a few, you can find them on my website/blog. 

Let me know what you think and enjoy!

ps. I'm always looking for guests, so let me know if you're interested in appearing? There's just a short questionnaire to complete.

What is Social Selling?

I'm always on the look out of great learning content.  I found Simon Kemp a few years ago and he has published some amazing data and Social Media stats in the past.

For now I'd like to share this amazing Slideshare he published in July 2017.  There's some great learning content in there.  He also published a great article, to explode more detail around it.

Go and have a look, I am sure you'll enjoy it.

Discovery Call

Thank you so much for being connected on LinkedIn. 

I was thinking... 

When we connect virtually it doesn't always explain the full story does it?   

For this very reason I decided to plan what I call a 'Discovery Call' with some of my LinkedIn connections. Completely optional of course.  

You can book one via:

Hope to chat really soon? 

Personalised Consultation Session

I hope you had a chance to download my eBook titled 'Why is Storytelling so Important?

But don't worry if you didn't, because most people download eBooks and never read them.  I am just as guilty as the rest.  

I was inspired by a fellow marketer to cure this problem.  He suggested that I get in touch with you to offer you a FREE Personalised Consultation session on the subject of Storytelling. I hear you, what's the catch?

There isn't one, I promise. No sales routine, no funnel, no hidden magic, hypnosis, NLP or anything to get you to buy a thing, nothing. So why am I doing it?  I see so many profiles in my work where people write what they do instead of sharing their story and I'm on a mission to help as many people as possible to become better storytellers.

You may if you wish of course, but only if you are 100% delighted, to write me a recommendation on LinkedIn after you received the consultation. But it's not part of the deal, totally not.

So what's the next step? Very simple.  

Just schedule a 45-minute virtual meet-up with me via Skype. To book a Personalised Consultation session with me just click the button or follow the link below. 

Storytelling Webinar

I delivered a webinar to some experts in the USA and shared with them why storytelling is important and what happens to all of us when we hear stories.  Did you realise that you are in fact the biggest storyteller in your life? The webinar recording is just 20 minutes and by the end of it you will think totally differently about storytelling. It's well worth the watch even if I say it myself.

LinkedIn Lectures pass it forward

As you may have read earlier, I spent the good part of 12 months creating my best ever LinkedIn e-course. You may have attended one of my LinkedIn Lectures webinars. Well, I recorded every single webinar and used the recordings to create a very detailed and comprehensive e-course. 

Well, they're all the fashion these days, so why not.

So I'm sharing another link and this time it's for you to pass on to someone you know, it could be a family member, a friend or even a stranger who you've noticed needs some help with their LinkedIn profile.

Normally the e-course is priced at £90 ($130) and I have discounted it to just £10 ($13). Just share the link below with whoever you wish.

It could be for a student or a jobseeker or anyone in business for themselves. Oh and maybe teachers, my word they really need to learn this stuff, for sure.

Anyway, happy sharing!

Submit your regular email address to the cloud for future thoughtful articles. I avoid regular emails and will only share stuff from time to time that will form the basis of useful two-way engagement. Sounds good?
