Have you recently said, “I’ve been on LinkedIn for years now, but I’m still not sure what I’m supposed to be doing on it?” Are you finally ready to “crack the code” and start landing clients on LinkedIn?

I believe that it’s the powerful combination of LinkedIn and offline networking that will bring you the best results.

I highly recommend her if you want to make more out of your LinkedIn connections for leads, referrals or just general brand awareness.”

LinkedIn offers many other ways to promote your business, yourself, and your ideas to the audience you want to target. Groups are not the right forum to do this. Groups are all about building relationships through conversation about topics and ideas with a two-way dialogue.
Not sure if managing a group or participating in group discussions is right for you? Consider these options to promote your business or ideas instead:
- Create a Company Page. If you offer professional services and want to promote your business, consider creating a Company Page for your business.
- Publish your ideas to reach a wider audience. The LinkedIn publishing platform offers a great opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge in a certain area to a broad audience with the purpose of promoting ideas, as opposed to promoting commercial services. Your long-form posts are tied to your LinkedIn identity and provide an effective way to stand out from the crowd while building your professional reputation.

Social Selling Essentials: How to Drive New Business on LinkedIn
Digital disruption has forever changed the sales and marketing landscape. Instead of waiting to be told about a company’s products and services, buyers are turning to social media to research vendors and make buying decisions.
- According to a LinkedIn 2016 “State of Sales” survey, more than 70% of sales professionals use social selling tools, including LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, making them the most widely used sales technology.
In this new environment, it’s more crucial than ever for sales and marketing to align and create a united social media strategy to reach prospective customers. Organizations that have embraced social selling are able to influence buyers throughout their buying journey, provide them more value and ultimately drive sales success.
Social selling has also grown as today’s generation of sales professionals have learned to leverage their online networks. They have used these networks to share knowledge, promote their offerings and reach decision makers who are becoming increasingly difficult to find through traditional cold calling techniques. This proactive and strategic approach is key if your company wants to leverage the LinkedIn platform.
In this workshop you’ll learn:
- How sales, marketing, and customers benefit when a company adopts a social selling approach
- Ways marketing and sales can align their social selling efforts to connect with more people, boost brand recognition and drive sales
- How your business can leverage social selling to generate better leads and close more deals
