I am always amazed of the people I meet at networking events or social media conferences that are heavy on Twitter or Facebook but light on LinkedIn. Or others that are on LinkedIn but are not really on LinkedIn. In other words, after realizing the potential value of LinkedIn, what’s next?
I have become good friends with Bradley Will, the role model who is empowering young entrepreneurs, and we have a similar goal of helping others better utilize social media. My blog post for today I actually wrote for his demographic, the Gen Y entrepreneurs who have been intimated by LinkedIn but now are opening up to it and seeing its value. But the message is really applicable to anyone who has just gotten started on the social networking site.
Before I give you the link to the blog post, let me summarize my advice briefly here:
- Brand Your LinkedIn Profile
- You are NOT Your Company
- Connect! Connect! Connect!
