  1. Great article. I was having a little confusion on how to post my crowd funding campaign to diversify golf. I want to make golf available at local community parks and was frustrated by not being completely confident in the how to share it. Thank you.

    1. Thomas, you can post your crowd funding campaign as a status update but I caution you to post only if you have built a relationship with your network otherwise you will present yourself as someone who is advertising versus building your brand and passion with the goal of getting like-minded people to take interest. – JoAnne

  3. Hi, Can I add this “Share on LinkedIn” button on my home page or other landing page even when my business doesn’t have the LinkedIn profile?

    Thank you.

    1. Katka,
      I suggest both on a webpage or landing page you add social share icons that allow the reader to share to any social site including LinkedIn and it does not matter if you don’t have a LinkedIn profile. Depending on the website platform and/or landing page you are using they most likely have a plugin for these social share buttons – it is very common so check that out first. – JoAnne
