Using LinkedIn for a Small Business Owner is ESSENTIAL #LinkedIn4Biz #LinkedMoms Chat Wed. March 4 at 8 pm
Have you ever wondered about how to use LinkedIn properly?
I’m not talking about spamming people with ‘friend requests’ when you don’t even know the person.
I’m not talking about asking if you want to make thousands of dollars and only work four hours a week.
I’m not talking about posting a company as a actual personal profile.
I’m about how you, as a blogger and small business owner, can use LinkedIn to get more opportunities to write and work with leading brands.
It’s not a real social media platform you say.  Why would you think that? You are missing out on a great way to connect. It is a means to connect with people (that is social), it is away of sharing your knowledge and expertise (that is media) by being able to post on Pulse or as a status update.
LinkedIn is a direct line to those people that you may not necessarily find ‘on-line’ on a regular basis but they are important to you.  They are the brand managers, marketing managers, PR and advertising executives that work in agencies.  They are the people that make the decisions on how to spend their company’s marketing budgets.  They are busy people that are not necessarily on traditional social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest) during the day. You can find these heavyweights online but they are more likely to be on LinkedIn.  For us bloggers, it is our job to be on all of these sites for hours upon hours each day.
I have been preaching the benefits of LinkedIn since 2009.  It is my ‘first love’ in social media and continues to be an important player in how I communicate my message to the world.  This is not a platform that you can ignore or simply have an account on without maintaining.
As other platforms, there is rhyme and reason as to how to use LinkedIn and we will be discussing the importance of being and using LinkedIn for Business.
I have set up many profiles for clients so that the maximize their SEO and exposure on LinkedIn.  I have also spoken at National Conferences and given workshops on LinkedIn.  I will be sharing nuggets of knowledge on Wednesday that will help you get active with LinkedIn.  As an added bonus, I will be giving away 3 LinkedIn Profile reviews valued at $125 each.
Join us on Wednesday March 4th at 8 pm EST, 7 pm CST, 5 PST by following the #LinkedMoms #LinkedIn4Biz on LinkedMoms Chat as we discuss the virtues of using LinkedIn to improved your presence on the the network of choice for professionals.
Please use the #LinkedMoms & #LinkedIn4Biz hashtags at the end of all of your tweets to be included in the chat and to be eligible to win a prize.
