Here is a little information about LinkedIn that I think you’ll find valuable. Enjoy and I’ll ask you on LinkedIn.
1. Ask and answer questions.
You can find the answers section of LinkedIn when you sign in, or
search for “Answers” and it will come up. Queries range can range
from how to get the most out of your website to detailed questions about tax law.
Participating in these exchanges is an easy way of gaining trust and
building your reputation. Asking questions will prompt informed sources to
offer their expert advice (which helps everyone in the network), while
providing answers gives you a chance to show off your own expertise to others.
2. Recommend and introduce colleagues.
Recommendations work as a form of currency in a social network.
Those who are happy with your work can write a brief description of their
experience on your LinkedIn profile. By having a broad range of endorsements
attesting to your professional expertise, you show others that you can be
trusted. And make sure to recommend those you’ve had good experiences
Introductions are trickier but also more valuable. This is where
your personal judgment needs to come into play. When someone contacts you for
an introduction, be sure you understand and approve of what they want before
making the handoff. Likewise, make your intentions clear when you are asking
for an introduction.
