8 LinkedIn Tips and Basics that All Users should Practice | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
We all know about LinkedIn, but the business networking site still tends to fly under the radar more often than not. These LinkedIn tips and basics will ignite your profile and experience.
Sharla Shults's insight:

It's a good practice to include relative keywords in your profile. Think of words that would be more niche and less traveled than "business", "social media", or "technology". Those mainstream keywords aren't worth it as you'll have to sacrifice your profile.

“It isn’t just what you know, and it isn’t just who you know. It’s actually who you know, who knows you, and what you do for a living.” - Bob Burg

 

Making connections with collaborators and joint ventures has never been easier — thanks to LinkedIn — the world’s largest business network.

Sharla Shults's insight:

If you have not already connected with Linkedin, do it today and use LinkedIn to advance your brand and/or business.
