Interesting Stats from my LinkedIn Account. 2017

About this time last year, I wrote an article sharing the statistics for a LinkedIn experience. Specifically, it was on the number of people who reached out and congratulated me on a work anniversary with OTrain. The general point of the post was how little people were using LinkedIn to grow and leverage their business and I used the actual numbers of my very public, LinkedIn Company event as the source. I got a good response to the first post, so I thought I’d run the numbers again and see if anything has changed in 2017. So to rehash, on October 10 I celebrated 6 years with OTrain. LinkedIn reminded me when I started to see messages appearing in my feed. Again, this year a number of people took time out of their day to send a congratulation message. I am very humbled and appreciative of the thought. Not just because of the marketing experiment its become, but because people took the time to acknowledge our company and the anniversary. So now, 36 hours or so after I received the first notification, here are this years numbers and how they compare: I now have over 5000 contacts – an increase of approximately 100% on last year (2016 = 2500+) Approximately 1 % of the people I’m connected with in total, have sent me a message via LinkedIn to celebrate my anniversary. – a decrease of 50% (2016 = 2%) 84% of this years contacts were the default message – a slight increase on last year (2016 = 78%) 16% of people that messaged, typed something specific or a customised...

Interesting Stats from my LinkedIn Account. 2016

I have nearly 2500 contacts on LinkedIn and this week (according to LinkedIn notifications) I celebrated 5 years in two of my businesses. OTrain, my company that puts training online, and OGroupMGMT my management and consulting company. I only know this because I started to receive messages from my contacts, telling me I was celebrating an anniversary. You might see these notifications come up on your feed regularly. As you would expect, a number of people took time out of their day to send a congratulation message. I am very humbled and appreciative of the thought. We’ve been focused a lot on our Marketing and specifically our use of social media over the past 2 quarters and being a numbers driven individual, I thought it might be interesting to see what some of the statistics are. So now, 36 hours or so after I received the first notification, heres what I found: 2% of the people I’m connected with in total, have sent me a message via LinkedIn. 78% of them, used the default message – Congrats on the anniversary! Hope you’re doing well. 6% of the messages I received had a slight change, such as using my name or making a specific comment about me, or my professional profile as displayed in LinkedIn. 15% of people that messaged, typed something specific or a customised note. 3% of my total contacts took the time to write a personal note. Now as I said above, I appreciate the attention and the though, whether fully typed or the default note, but what I though was really interesting is how this fantastic...

I did something stupid – Lessons from the Cape

Last week I did something stupid. I rode a motorbike to the tip of Cape York. The adventure itself was not stupid, in fact it has been on my bucket list for a long time, but what was stupid was that I haven’t really ridden a motorbike that much. And I certainly have never ridden in those conditions. In fact, I only purchased my motorbike 3 weeks before the trip. 2 weeks out I had to put in on a truck to Cairns. In total, I had done less than 600 (highway) KM’s on the bike when I set off on this adventure. To top it off, this was a 200kg+ BMW Adventure Bike. Not the easiest thing to ride. It was stupid. The good news is I made it to the Cape and back and despite a few stacks (outlined at the end of this article) I arrived safely and without injury. This was no easy feat, with approximately 10 people airlifted from the ride with major injuries and many more minor injuries and damaged bikes. But typically, this experience got me thinking about business and the lessons I could draw. The first was the importance of having a goal or a vision. I had the trip on my bucket list, and I was invited to join the ride by a mate. Having this clear vision to complete a trip to the Cape made it an easy decision when it came time to participate. It also helped to know where I was going and what I’d need to take. The second lesson was about having the right tools...

5 Essential Pillars of Growth

OTrain is a Queensland based, full service provider of online training solutions working with training organisations just like you. Primarily we do two things. We help put YOUR training online, and we help make YOUR online training work. This includes helping you grow. One of the key things we have found helpful for training organisation’s to organise their growth, is having a model or framework. Having worked with well over 100 training organisations since 2011, and managing more than 700 courses, delivered to 125,000+ students, we’ve identified a framework that we consider to be the 5 Essential Pillars of Growth. Most organisations are great at delivering training, and have the experience and advisors to help maintain currency and compliance, but unfortunately success won’t come by simply providing good training and remaining compliant. It takes more. Sure, current and compliant training is important. Very important. But they are just a ticket to the game. It’s the minimum expectation. If you don’t have good training you should go home now and if you aren’t compliant it won’t be long until you are shut down. But in today’s competitive training environment, to achieve success and sustainable growth, you need more. You need the 5 Essential Pillars of Growth: Pillar 1 is Content You need to have good relevant content. But you’re the subject matter expert, I don’t need to tell you about this. Pillar 2 is Platform You need a good, stable and reliable platform and it needs to be fit for purpose. Not just for delivering training, but for managing enrolments, collecting payment, managing reporting and more. Without a reliable platform...
