Using LinkedIn for Client Forums

Client forums are a valuable tool for gathering input and creating an open dialogue on industry relevant topics.  Positive take-aways are numerous and include:

  • Creating a space where clients can hear what each other are doing and discuss common needs
  • Gaining input on industry topics to aid with new product development
  • Finding pilot clients for testing new products
  • Strengthening relationships
  • Showing relevancy for your company

It’s not always possible to host these forums in-person, so I posted a question in the LinkedIn Answers area about using private LinkedIn groups as a client forum.

I’d like your input as well either on the question answer section at LinkedIn or in the comments area of this post.
