The Monthly Web Advice by Marketing Ultimum:
Rock your Linkedin in 5 minutes a day
Linkedin can be a truly beneficial tool for networking with peers, acquiring potential leads and promoting your business brand. However, with so many opportunities and people using the platform, managing efficiently your professional account can be time-consuming and it can become hard to stand out from the crowd.
Therefore, here’s how you can distinguish yourself by your responsiveness and rock your Linkedin in 5 minutes a day:
-1 minute to accept requests – Do you have any pending connection?
A common Linkedin misconception is that you should only connect with people you know or want to do business with. Why limit yourself? Accept connection requests.
-1 minute to send a request – Is your network growing?
Linkedin will continually prompt you to connect with people you might know. A good target is to aim to connect with at least 1 person every day. With consistency, your network will be thriving in no time.
-3 minutes to say thank you – Send a thank you message to new connections!
Whether you know your new connections or not, you can never go wrong by thanking them for connecting with you. If you don’t know each other, this could be a good opportunity to tell them a little bit about yourself or the business as well as share your content that you think they could find pertinent. Make sure you don’t fail to make an impression, as this will be your first interaction.
If you’d like to learn more about the best practices discussed here or how you can improve your current website, Marketing Ultimum offers you a free strategic planning session! You can contact their team today: (438) 793-4960 or email: email@example.com. You can also visit their Website.
