LinkedIn for Business

In this presentation I discuss how to Build your Personal Brand and Reputation, Become a Recognized and Trusted Leader in your industry and Initiate Relationships to Gain Business.

LinkedIn is an online social network for business professionals. It allows professionals to create and maintain career-oriented business connections and promote their services or professional skills.

On LinkedIn, it’s not about your business, it’s about you!

This is not a place to be private.

You must be active.

Use all the new visual features to stand out. Post a cover image, add graphic files to your summary and include a professional profile photo

Post completed projects and link them to those who worked on it with you.
