3 Easy Ways to Network on Linkedin

Linked In

Linked In is a great format for networking, but people don’t always know how to use it.  If you try to force feed people your product/service, it’s a big turn off, but if you don’t say anything to people, then how will they know you’re there?

Well, there are 3 ways to get people interested in you on Linked In.

1.  Build a kick-ass profile!  When I say Kick Ass, that’s exactly what I mean!  You need a profile that gets noticed.  The best thing about your Linked In Profile is that it’s better than a resume because you are not limited in what you can write about.  Your profile should stand out and generate the interest of the people you want to attract, whether it be potential employers, buyers or partners.  In order to do that, make sure you hone in on your features and assets, such as communication skills, financial background, or your small business opportunity.   Make it sound appealing,  the best way to do this is to walk away for a day or two and come back with a fresh pair of eyes, read it as if it’s your first time reading it, does anything stand out? Are you happy with what you’ve written, as if you were someone else,  ask close friends and mentors (only the ones you trust) what they think of your profile. GO ALL IN!

2.  Connect with everyone you know!  Whether it’s your 2nd grade teacher or your best friend from Band Camp, everybody you know either works, or knows someone else who does.  So be sure you connect with them as soon as you get your profile up and complete.  If you have, ask them for a recommendation for your work

3.  Work it!  So you have a great profile, but nobody is looking at it?  You’re going to have to connect with people you know (or don’t know) and you can do that in many different ways, joining groups is one good way, engage in discussion with the people in the group, comment, like and post.  Connect with the other people in the group by sending private messages regarding what they posted about.
