Linkedin For Business

HOW TO USE Linkedin FOR BUSINESS Among the social networks, LinkedIn can be one of the most useful when it comes to cultivating critical, lucrative business opportunities, since it has a high concentration of business decision makers. The trick is going beyond connecting with cousins and college buddies to strategically building a "power network" of individuals who should be potential clients. But building a power network on Linkedin doesn't happen overnight. So how to make Linkedin work for your company? Read on. Optimize Your Profile One of the easiest ways is to update your profile picture. LinkedIn views this kind of update as "freshness" and it can help your ranking when others are searching for someone like you. Hi Tell People Who You Are A headline that communicates these points is often what grabs a person's attention when searching the site. I should be able to read your headline and know exactly what you offer and why I should get in touch with you. Be clear and compelling. Fill Out Work Experiences By listing all of your places of employment including your educational institutions - you can create a larger net for capturing searches. Plus, these connections could be second or third-tier connections to people you've been trying to meet. Join Targeted Groups Connect with like-minded professionals who are serious about using LinkedIn to form deeper business connections. Participating in these groups also enables you to share your knowledge and to learn from other members. Create A Targeted Group Not only can leading a group give you a certain level of credibility, it allows you to connect with people who are influential within your specific industry. Send Personal Invites The invite is your first communication on LinkedIn, so make a good first impression by writing a personal request and asking how you can help the person, or whom you can introduce them to. Get Endorsements Contact people directly, via phone or e-mail, and let them know you're personally reaching out to them because of (insert how you've helped them here) and would appreciate it if they'd be willing to write a quick recommendation for you, based on that story. The same goes for endorsements, which are much easier to give since it's just a click of a button.
