Grew the community from 400 to 1100 in 3 weeks

Ilya Azovtsev @Azovtsev_Il


A few weeks ago I became an admin at LinkedIn Growth Hackers FB group 😱

and we grew from 400 to 1K members in just 3 weeks 😍

It becomes the best community for growth marketers who want to conquer the LinkedIn game 🚀

How I did it:

  1. Cold outreached social media managers - but it didn't work well. ❌
  2. Started sharing valuable content which led to word of mouth and people started sharing info about the group ✅
  3. Wrote a few Linkedin posts about this group, and these posts became viral ✅

What it gives to our start-up now:

  1. Free brand awareness
  2. The place to distribute content
  3. The place where our ambassadors recommend the tool

If you want to:

  • get new LinkedIn hacks and tactics
  • share awesome content around LinkedIn
  • exchange likes and comments to get initial engagement

    Hey @Azovtsev_Il,

    How do you produce the content? Do you hire freelancers? I truly believe in the power of quality content. We once hit the front page of the Hacker News with this post https://ottofeller.com/blog/how-to-conduct-research-and-successfully-launch-a-product But the problem for us is that we are struggling to scale our content marketing up. It's very hard to find a good tech writer.

    Apologies if I'm asking to share a secret! 😊

      I totally believe that you need to develop this skill inhouse.

      Since it's toooooo hard to find awesome copywriter.

      For example, all articles on blog.lempod.com are mine

        How much time do you spend daily on writing a blog?
