Forget Twitter and Facebook. They’re great for fun, casual conversation with far-flung friends and family, but where do professionals go when they need to be in touch with other like-minded business people? People looking for more than the latest meme or viral YouTube video? They’re on LinkedIn – and if you’re not there, you’re missing a great opportunity!
You know that the success of any business is dependent on networking. Whether you’re working for someone else or going solo, staying in touch with your colleagues – and even your competitors – is the key to keeping up to date with the latest information. And without that information, you’ll be left in the dust.
LinkedIn gives busy professionals the perfect venue for learning what’s new, what’s hot, and who’s hiring. But only if you know how to use it. Staci’s guide gives you everything you need to know, like
- Step-by-step instructions for setting up your profile, so you don’t waste hours on needless details no one will read
- Directions for joining and creating groups to increase your network reach
