Not only that, but each network member brings other contacts outside of Leitrim to the table, increasing the possibility of meeting new contacts and potential clients/customers. This is one of the key advantages of LinkedIn over traditional business directories.
The network now has over 900 ‘connections’ combined. On Friday last, an INNOVATE client in Omagh asked me for an introduction to 4 different companies he seen on my contact list. YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME – JUST ASK ME. If it is appropriate, then I will make the introduction.
People cannot introduce/recommend you/your business if they don’t know you.
LinkedIn have upgraded their site with some new features and improved usability. Of course t he same reasons for using it still apply:
- When you create a profile on LinkedIn (which is FREE), link to your website, it is another qualified link to help improve your Google search results.
- When you add a new connection, others see that you have – it keeps your name out there.
- People tend to have a browse around and look at their connections’ connections so to speak.
