  • Employees excludes: self-employed, student, not working
  • Despite social networking being a truly global phenomenon, this hasn’t led to cultural homogeneityamongst communities. It is evident that understanding the role that social media plays and the needsthey best meet is important and our research shows that these needs are not uniform. As millions ofpeople across the world flock to join the social networking platforms the nuances between nationsbecome clear.
  • Since LinkedIn’s intrinsic value is that of a community centre for professionals, it can be a vehicle for communications centrally just as effectively as it can for local markets.   Our aim is to use LinkedIn as a PLATFORM upon which central and local ideas can be accommodated.Our insight is that LinkedIn users seek ways and means to develop skills that give them a competitive edge as they invest in their career. We will build our approach from three pillars.The central pillar will develop content promoting Microsoft’s commercial products which have similar audiences and objectives despite different GMBs.   Because content competes for our audiences’ time and attention quality and relevance are crucial so we will analyse members’ usage data to help select the content that suits them best.   The codename for the product that we will develop for this is “The Newsroom”.   In creating the Newsroom, LinkedIn’s data analysis capabilities will help understand what members want so that we can deliver real time value and benefit to through Microsoft’s credibility in the topics. In summary, the Newsroom will identifying trends from behaviour data and use this to direct the content LinkedIn Today provides on behalf of Microsoft, as well as content from LinkedIn’s private API.The second pillar (to the right of the diagram) acknowledges that both LinkedIn and Microsoft are global.  Microsoft’s valuable relationship with local customers and consumers must be considered and our aim is to connect local programs, initiatives and audiences to our platform. We do this through technology LinkedIn gives us access to.  In doing so we can include markets to an international hub and recognise that most of the problems faced by the IT and business communities are shared regardless of their location.The third pillar (to the left of the diagram) recognises that there is already a huge and influential community in existence (as of 5/8/13 there are 5011 groups related to Microsoft).   We need these people to accept our content, platform and the ideas that are hosted on it so we will connect them to our central and local pillars by employing LinkedIn’s technologies and tools.The result that we are aiming for is an international community sharing in relevant topic led content that is trusted to help.   By connecting central and local pillars to a large existing community we are structuring a platform with the channels and means to achieve this at regional and local levels.
  • All flexible to the differing needs of countries and lines of business
  • LinkedIn won’t change the look and feel, or alter, or tamper with core products. We are pioneering data led content delivery together with LinkedIn and benefitting from access to member’s profile pages in doing so.The Knowledge Engine ascertains what the LinkedIn Member being targeted for Server/Dynamics/Office (used to illustrate) are interested in and what’s trending in their worlds.Content from LinkedIn Today (i.e. LinkedIn’s content partners) and Microsoft (i.e. local and regional content partners) that suits their needs is brought together and served to them as visualisedThese are The Newsroom Feedswhich delivers content to the LinkedIn MemberThe larger Newsroom Feed will “sit within LinkedIn Today as an integral part of the service to members” is expansive, i.e. tabbed and visually arresting.   I think the slide gives us the idea though.The smaller part is the Product Portal and will “sit within the Network section to the right of the LinkedIn Today” and focuses on the product that is served to the user, be it Server, Dynamics or Office (used in the illustration).  It will take the Member to the specific product section
  • Personalise content to what is useful based on profile, e.g. an IT Director in the auto industrySocialise: show LinkedIn network connections and send to those that are relevant to amplify and create virality, e.g. geolocate discussions.Integrate: key elements like trending topics in Group discussions to promote an integrated ecosystem, leveraging existing assetsGenerate leads and show the user’s proximity to Microsoft. This offers the route to contact a solutions consultant / sales rep
