Some LinkedIn Facts
LinkedIn has over 300 million users and is the largest networking platform for professionals. If you don’t have a presence, a professional looking presence on LinkedIn today then you are definitely losing out on opportunities. Today, LinkedIn is one of the very first places that people go to do research on someone and how you are viewed on LinkedIn is a credibility statement about how they might view you. You can no longer afford to not be seen on LinkedIn. Google yourself and see where your LinkedIn profile comes up in the search results…it will be in the first three….almost guaranteed.
LinkedIn is not a “silver bullet”. It will not cure all of your marketing and networking ills. However, with some knowledge and some effort it can be a very powerful and effective tool in your networking and marketing toolbox in this digital age.
Do I Need To Have A LinkedIn Profile To Begin?
Not at all. We coach all levels of experience and knowledge from beginner to advanced. However, if we are doing a group presentation we try to make sure that we do separate sessions for those at different comfort levels. If that is not possible, then we make sure our presentation is structured in such a way as to provide value for attendees, whether beginner, intermediate or advanced level user.
What Makes Our Program Different?
Because everyone’s needs are different. So, we customize every workshop to meet YOUR needs and goals.
How Do We Do This?
Once you have retained our services we begin with a discovery call where we ask you a number of questions to help us better understand your requirements. We then put together an outline and then we have another conversation and discuss, review and refine the outline. Once YOU are happy with the path we are going to take then we put together our program and presentation customized for you.
What Topics Do You Cover In Every Program?
Although every program is customized for you and your goals there are certain fundamentals that we need to make sure you are comfortable with using. So we do spend time discussing how to build a successful profile, how to effectively build your network, how to stand out from the crowd and some fundamental best practices that everyone needs to do on LinkedIn.
