I’ve been following the development of online business networking for several years now; particularly at the inception of sites like Ecademy.com and LinkedIn. That said, I’d like to state for the record: If you’ve had any lingering thoughts that social media is just a fad, you may want to lose them.
Are you aware that LinkedIn’s IPO (Initial Public Offering) has a valuation of 4.3 billion (USD)? That’s right, I said BILLION. If you haven’t been taking social media seriously, perhaps it’s time to start.
While there are indeed many competitors to LinkedIn, it has certainly–for now–risen to the top when it comes to sites devoted primarily to business networking and social media.
In this short video, I offer five valuable tips that will guide you in the right direction when it comes to using LinkedIn and getting the most from the efforts you put into networking online through this particular site.
Do you have additional tips for using LinkedIn, or other networking sites, which you’ve found to be highly effective? If so, please share them in the comments section so others can learn and benefit from your experience.
