No matter the business that you are in, one important task on your plate is building a passionate digital audience. Amassing a true tribe of followers helps you build your brand equity, gather new ideas for future products and services, and creates an already-existing cohort of prospects that are likely to purchase from you. While all of these benefits are clear, actually amassing that passionate group of followers is easier said than done.

One person that has successfully amassed a huge following within a short period of time is Ira Bowman. Ira has amassed over 180,000 followers on LinkedIn alone. He is the owner of Bowman Digital Media, which helps its clients quickly improve sales by design. While it may seem daunting to obtain a LinkedIn following as large as Ira’s, it is certainly achievable.

In his conversation with Dubb founder Ruben Dua, Ira gets into some of the key strategies that helped him build a network and have a ton of fun at the same time. Topics discussed include Ira’s thoughts on how the LinkedIn platform has changed since 2009, how #projecthelpyougrow helped Ira build his credibility on LinkedIn, how Ira managed to build a business around a nine-to-five job, and why you want to get to 30,000 connections as fast as you can. It’s a great conversation that can help you get the most out of LinkedIn.
