Value of LinkedIn

I just started using Lindedin in the past few months. I have found value in the knowledge of the community.  One of my clients sent me a link and suggested I sign up and allow him to give me a recommendation.  Ann Dail Baton Rouge Realtor LinkedIn ProfileThis was one of my social media goals this year so I was glad for the nudge.  The first two or three months I just filled out my profile.  Then I began to reach out to others I know and build a small group.

This past month I decided to get on more often and explore.  I joined some groups, and that's where I began to find more value.  The emarketing group which I joined posted a question and discussion link on the Pros and cons of various enewsletter providers.  How amazing!  One of my goals was to upgrade our enewsletter this quarter.  Just that discussion saved me many hours of research and helped us decide our direction.  I learned first hand the power of community.  If you haven't already, get involved in business groups by interest or locally if there are some.

Hi Ann ~ And I appreciate your "nudge"!  I've signed up but done very little there.  Good to hear your tips for getting more out of it.

Slow and steady wins the race, Ann!  Kudos to you for getting out there and making it work for you.  Funny how sometimes it's our clients who give us the nudge instead of the other way around, isn't it?

Ann - I am on LinkedIn, and have made some connections through it.  I know it can be a more powerful tool if I would just use it more and learn about it's capabilities.

I got an invite and signed up, but there are hardly any people from my area and no activity from here. There just isn't enough time to spend on a "maybe someone might see us" thing.

I have just started building connections on Linkedin. There is so much to learn about how to integrate all these sources of media into your daily business.

Social media is here to stay. You need to embrace the changes that are happening around you.
