In an ongoing effort to provide our members with the tools they need to
successfully develop their businesses, we are presenting another educational
presentation, entitled: How to Leverage a LinkedIn Network into Dynamic
Looking for ways to ramp up your company's presence on LinkedIn?
Is your LinkedIn account mostly sitting idle?
Do you want to increase your network, boost your productivity and develop
your book of business by getting familiar with LinkedIn and using this in
your everyday interactions with colleagues and clients?
If you are an executive, business leader, entrepreneur, consultant or
business coach who wants to ensure that you leverage your personal
professional profile on LinkedIn then you won't want to miss this program.
This program will give you actions you can take to start to differentiate
your online presence, manage your reputation online and attract more
business leads through LinkedIn and is especially useful for any business
leader who wants to ensure that they leverage LinkedIn (working with even
the free subscription) to win new business and use it as a relationship
marketing tool to keep in touch with past clients.
Tonight Barbara Rozgonyi will explain how small and mid-sized businesses can
quickly and easily get started on LinkedIn, as well as provides advanced
tips and techniques for using LinkedIn to grow and improve your business.
In conclusion, while LinkedIn isn't the largest social network, it is the
network with the
most business-focused members and mission. It arguably is the best social
network to freely market your company; however, it does require some work on
your end to ensure that you're leveraging the right techniques.
