Does LinkedIn Work?
Does LinkedIn Work?
I know I should be wholely and fully focused on the Super Affiliate Challenge... so I hope this isn't avoidance behaviour... but...
I spent yesterday morning at an Xtraordinary Women Networking Breakfast.
Networking with other women entrepreneurs is equally important, right?
And the Guest Speaker was LinkedIn Expert, Sharon Atkins, a fellow blogger who recently taught me how to optimise my LinkedIn Profile.
It was Sharon who inspired me to switch from "Mom Blogger in the Mother City" to "Visionary Digital Entrepreneur". We came up with this while we were optimising my profile.
Sharon got me all fired up about LinkedIn and what it can do you for my online presence.
I know, I know, Tony Hamilton's been talking about the power of Linked In for ages.
And Sean Greentree published this post recently with the alarming speed at which LinkedIn is growing right now.
Fired Up About LinkedIn
So anyway, I just spent/invested another entire morning on building up my LinkedIn Profile.
- I added company pages.
Here's Tony's awesome training on this:
- And connected with a bunch of likeminded women.
And within a few hours I'd gone from 171 connections to 238 connections on Linked In. Yay!
The first target is 501 Connections on Linked In because then you get a completely optimised Profile. i.e. It will say 500+ Followers when someone glances at your profile. They have to visit your profile to see how many more than 500 followers you have
So... Does LinkedIn Work?
Well... I just received my first enquiry on LinkedIn and have just emailed her my rates for Paid Guest Posting or a Featured Interview.
If she decides to go for it, that means I got business from LinkedIn on the very first day I meant business on LinkedIn.
Fascinated to see what transpires and where this leads me. Will keep you posted.
Did You Know?
That of the 530 Million+ LinkedIn Users, only 1 Million are posting on LinkedIn?
Definitely publishing a post on LinkedIn Publisher next. Didn't even know it existed until I met Sharon Atkins. (And she just happens to live in the same Residential Estate as me, lucky me!). So more training is definitely on the cards.
Don't worry, I'll be passing on what I learn to you... actually, I've been hoping Sharon will do that herself. She's been toying with the idea of joining Wealthy Affiliate.
