LinkedIn 101 by Barbara Rozgonyi Presentation Guide

LinkedIn provides a place for your professional credentials, your thought leadership and your community platform – all for free, all in one consolidated center. In this session, you’ll learn how to start building your business online with a strategy that incorporates search engine optimization, marketing, human resources, communications and public relations. As a woman-owned business, you’ll find out how belonging to the LinkedIn community can polish your profile, enhance your professional image, and present you as the industry leader you are.

In this session we’ll cover:

•  what you need to get started

•  why you need keywords

•  examples of good profiles

•  where to find connections

•  what groups to join

•  when to answer questions

•  how to stay in touch

•  which picture to use

•  what to say in your tagline

You’ll take home tools to get started: an action checklist and a fill-in-the-blanks profile form.
