Building Your LinkedIn Network

Building Your LinkedIn Network | Online Relations & Community management | Scoop.it

LinkedIn is certainly the best social media platform for the business contacts and network. To be in harmony, it’s important to respect few rules and good sense. This post will give some information about that. [note Martin Gysler]

 

In his book Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for Business, author Ted Prodromou describes how to best to leverage the networking site as a business tool. In this edited excerpt, the author details the two methods of building connections on LinkedIn.

 

How many connections should you have on LinkedIn? I'm asked that question frequently, and there isn't a magic number that works for everyone.

What is a CRM and why do I need one on LinkedIn?

What is a CRM and why do I need one on LinkedIn? | Online Relations & Community management | Scoop.it

Content Relationship Management and LinkedIn


You might have heard the term, or might even be using a CRM in your marketing and sales efforts. If not, you should be! According to Wikipedia, “Customer relationship management (CRM) is a widely implemented model for managing a company’s interactions with customers, clients, and sales prospects.” When using social media, and in particular LinkedIn, we have the ability to download some contact information about connections (1st level contacts). LinkedIn doesn’t really have a useful CRM within its UI (user interface) so its you might consider utilizing third party apps like Avectra’s Social CRM.

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular | Online Relations & Community management | Scoop.it

Sometimes a little thing change the face of the world, on LinkedIn it's the one-click endorsement. I think it's really a great idea from LinkedIn to introduce this possibility. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It took LinkedIn nine years to reach 187 million members. It took the professional social network about one month to pass 200 million endorsements.


Endorsements are LinkedIn’s lightweight version of recommendations. The one-click, vote-of-approval option was released in late September; it offers members a quick and easy way to tell the world that a friend or co-worker is skilled in any area imaginable, say journalism, social media, or even kettlebells. Received endorsements are listed on member profiles in the skills and expertise section.
