  • There are two ways to get the most out of LinkedIn Groups – joining groups and creating your own. Get a feel for how groups work by joining some in your industry as well as joining groups your target audience might join. You can be a member of up to 50 groups. To search groups, use the search box in your LinkedIn menu bar, change the dropdown to 'Groups', and enter your desired keywords. Hamid @
