LinkedIn 201 Session Description:

You know the basics of how to use LinkedIn, but do you have a “power” profile and a powerful network?  If not, you are probably losing business.

In this session, we will teach you

  • how to create a “power profile”, including tips that aren’t documented anywhere else
    • example tip – do you have common misspellings of your name in your profile so that people who misspell your name can still find you?
  • how to maximize the chances that you are found by potential customers
  • how to build your network efficiently and effectively
  • the 3 different philosophies for building a network, and advantages and disadvantages of each
  • how to build a network of 1500+ people in under a week, if that’s what you want
  • key mistakes to avoid as you build your network, and how to overcome them
  • the rare cases where 3rd level connections can be really useful

Are there potential customers that may be looking for your services on LinkedIn, but they can’t find you?  Do you want to be found by people who don’t even know you personally, but may want to do business with you?

LinkedIn can be an extremely powerful tool for reconnecting with old contacts, researching companies and their employees, and acquiring new business.  Unfortunately, LinkedIn hasn’t done a great job of teaching people how to utilize it.  Fortunately, we do.

We have figured out how to use powerful, undocumented techniques with LinkedIn to create more business, enhance referrals, leverage your current contacts and make more money for companies that work on government contracts.

We can teach you how to do these things with LinkedIn, and you’ll enjoy learning it. 

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to use LinkedIn to get more sales, shorten the sales cycle, and develop partnership agreements more easily.
