After speaking at a recent blogger event where 80% of the room was hardly leveraging LinkedIn at all, I thought I’d share the 10 things I do on LinkedIn each and every week as inspiration for others to do more on this powerful professional networking platform. If you start doing even just a few of these things, I’m certain you’ll see some new (and welcome) outreach as well as activity on LinkedIn. BTW, over the course of any given week, these 10 things take up no more than an hour of my time.
Update my status on my profile with either news about a connection or an upcoming speaking engagement I have. Share something worthy that a connection has posted. Review my main stream and Like or Comment on things my network has shared. Review who’s looking at my profile and see if there is anyone I want to connect with on the list. Remember, though, if you don’t have an upgraded account, you need to be willing to let others see that you’ve viewed their profile as shown here via Settings (click to enlarge):
