A lot of articles have been written about social media and Web 2.0 tools and how they can help you grow your business.
I want to encourage you as a business owner, founder, president, or key executive in a larger firm to use the Linkedin.com web site to build your business and advance your career.
It’s something I encourage everyone in The Franklin 100 Program and other marketing and leadership development programs I lead.
There are five key ways to benefit immediately from using LinkedIn at the basic, free level: setting up a profile, connecting with people in your network, getting and giving recommendations, using the online answers forum, and exploring your extended connections.
Throughout time, we’ve always used social networks as a way of helping us figure out who to meet, who to trust, who to do business with. Web 2.0 online social networks make the familiar process just that much easier in the 21st century.
Go to www.LinkedIn.com to get started today.
