LinkedIn, LinkedUp, Podcast, Barry Gipson, Comcast Cowboy

It’s 2019 and if you’re not already on LinkedIn, then my brand new podcast “LinkedUp” will absolutely be for you. Back in June 2016 Microsoft bought the professional social network for $26.2 billion dollars.

Over the last 30 days I have been conducting research on LinkedIn. I have also been a member of the platform since 2011. Even 5 years before I retired from the Navy I was encouraging others to connect on the network.

Now, with 2 years deep into my current role with Comcast, I’m asking you to dive into the deep end of the pool with me here. Let’s get LinkedUp in 2019 and build.

Why I chose LinkedUp for LinkedIn

Three years ago Bill Gates and Microsoft bought LinkedIn during June 2016 for $26.2 Billion dollars. I reside about 50 minutes south of there so the noise coming from local media is getting louder. See for yourself below.

Their current CEO Satya Nadella’s financial performance is currently tied to the network. Along with other executives there according to CNBC.

Instead of ignoring the noise I wanted to take advantage of this opportunity it presents for all of us here. As more and more companies are incentivized to recruit Veterans.

My “LinkedUp” Podcast will absolutely be useful to transitioning military members migrating to LinkedIn for their next chapter. Something very important to me as a retired Navy veteran.

In addition, my podcast will feature other guest’s from our LinkedIn community to share their tips, tricks, how to’s, and connect with other new members to help grow our professional networks.

If you understand what Microsoft does for the business world with Windows, then the LinkedIn purchase, and eventual intergration within will become a definite game changer for corporate America.

My views on the potential of this marriage.

Did you know LinkedIn has sponsored advertisements also?

Facebook made more than $40 billion in revenue in 2017, approximately 89 percent of which came from digital advertisements. LinkedIn is becoming a very ripe opportunity if you do the math.

Especially for entrepreneurs and brand builders like my mentor Joseph. He shares high quality video content on LinkedIn building his brand there.
