Almost every professional who’s on the Internet these days has a LinkedIn Profile. You can find new customers, mentors, and of course employees on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is currently THE social network for professionals all over the world. Open yourself up to a network of infinite opportunities by joining the millions of members on the platform. Here’s how to create a LinkedIn Profile.
It’s easy to understand why your business should have a LinkedIn Company page. It’s not only a great venue to find great talent, it also encourages interaction with people who are related to your industry. It gives you a fantastic platform to create awareness, connect with top talent, and build a talent pipeline. Your company can get recommendations from satisfied customers as well as attract followers who will get updates from your company page – including your job postings.
Start building your network. Although it may feel small compared to some of the networks, a small network that actually knows you and cares about your business is often far more powerful than a huge network of loosely connected people.
LinkedIn is a great way to build an online presence for yourself as an expert as well as for your business. Unfortunately, like most social media success doesn’t come if you put up a profile and promptly forget about it. Success happens with interaction. One easy way to interact is by joining LinkedIn groups and participating.
