LinkedIn 100 Million Campaign
To commemorate its membership milestone, LinkedIn launched an interactive ad campaign featuring 100 of its members, including Karen Emanuelson, owner of Reciprocate LLC. Reciprocate’s success can be traced to Karen’s active participation in LinkedIn groups. She was selected for this campaign based on her 140-character success story: “I kick-started my marketing consulting business through LinkedIn groups.” Karen is currently a member of 58 groups on LinkedIn and serves as manager of two of these groups, Social Media for the Blogger and LinkedMinnesota Entrepreneurs.
