Please join us for our June event!

LinkedIn is the #1 professional network with more than 350 million members (compared to Facebook’s 1.4 billion), including 3 million active company profiles, spread over 200 countries. Two new people join every second. The members’ average income is $109,000. It yields four times better B2B results than Facebook and Twitter.

So why join and use LinkedIn? If you own your own business or are an employee in someone else’s, LinkedIn can (1) increase traffic to your website and blog, (2) generate leads and new clients, (3) improve your credibility and visibility, (4) help you to be found by the people who want your products and services, (5) help you find a job, and (6) help you find anyone you need to promote your business. HR directors and recruiters are also sleuthing around LinkedIn daily, with about 95% of companies using LinkedIn for recruitment.

This session will hop through the major sections of LinkedIn’s profile design with the intent of optimizing your search engine rank. Based on my “LinkedIn Trilogy” of 3 journal articles published 2 years ago (download on my profile), I will bring each section to life with my top-secret CPR techniques  and cover all the requirements for a 100% complete profile. You can make changes in your profile with me during the presentation or later, but your profile will never be the same when we are done. This is a session you can’t afford to miss unless you’re Mark Zuckerberg.
