Wondering how to find sources on these social media sites: LinkedIn, Twitter and Quora? That was a common question during a Webinar we offered May 17-18 called, “Beyond Google: Mining the Web for Company Intelligence.”
So, we asked the instructor for that Webinar, Sean Campbell, to do a five-minute demonstration video of how to:
- find former employees of a particular company on LinkedIn,
- use the advanced-search function on Twitter to locate sources, and
- identify experts on the Q-and-A site, Quora.
Campbell does these sorts of searches and more as a principal in Cascade Insights, a competitive-intelligence firm outside Portland, Ore.
If you’d like to know more about using the techniques of a competitive-intelligence professional to track your companies, check out the two one-hour recordings of his earlier Webinar. You’ll also find his PowerPoints and other resources.
To view any of the Webinar videos, you’ll need Adobe Flash Player software, which you can download for free.
You can also email Campbell with your questions.
