Become a LinkedIn Power User in 10 Minutes or Less | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

According to an infographic on Undercover Recruiter, 49.7% of LinkedIn users form connections whose influence can win them new customers. Meanwhile, 36.7% have found that LinkedIn helps them form relationships with potential buyers.

5 steps jumpstart LinkedIn -- Washington Technology

5 steps jumpstart LinkedIn -- Washington Technology | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it

The cover story in the current Fortune magazine (July 1, 2013, issue) by Jessi Hempel is “Everything you need to know about LinkedIn”. The article points out the growing need for all businesses to participate on LinkedIn. The six-page commentary brings up a number of great points and some excellent background, but six pages is not going to cover “everything you need to know.”

In a recent LinkedIn Diaries entry, I identified how LinkedIn “super users” leverage the popular social media tool to achieve their goals. Not surprisingly, success with LinkedIn comes with commitment and that translates into time — time learning the tool, time aligning your goals to the tool’s capabilities, time to build and maintain a profile and time to find new ways of using the tool effectively.

 

But, executives often have very demanding schedules which are highly unpredictable. In this entry of the LinkedIn Diaries, I identify those LinkedIn best practices used by busy leaders whose schedules limit them to devoting only 15 minutes per day to their LinkedIn activities.
