5 Things to Do to Get Started on LinkedIn

It’s time to get on LinkedIn! With 19 million users, LinkedIn is arguably the best-known and most widely used business networking site. With that fact combined with the fact that it is free to join – what are you waiting for?! LinkedIn gives you the opportunity to get known and showcase your business and your mission; you can connect with your contacts at Influence Centers, join groups that will bring you closer to people in your community, receive referrals when you provide outstanding service, and much more! Here are the five things you should do immediately after joining LinkedIn:
1. Complete your profile – Try to get to 100% completeness.

2. Search for people whom you already know that may be on LinkedIn and request to Connect.

3. Join at least FIVE groups – these should be oriented to not only the services of your business, but personal interests as well (i.e. college alumni group).

4. Request a recommendation and make a recommendation.

5. After you do each of these things one time, it’s not time to stop! You should be constantly updating your profile while repeating steps 2 to 5 at least once per week.

Facebook Profile Tips for Maintaining a Professional Image

Facebook Profile Tips for Maintaining a Professional Image: Whether you are using your Facebook page to promote your business or not, it is still your public face to your network of friends and family—friends and family that may be WONDERFUL sources of referrals, if you don’t offend them on Facebook!

Think about how you would feel if you were an outsider looking at your Facebook profile. Is there anything there that might just not need to be shared with the rest of the world? Remember, depending on your privacy settings, every picture that you post, every note that you post on someone’s wall, every status update, every group that you join, every application that you add is broadcasted to your entire network. So before you post that picture from your best friend’s bachelor party or become a fan of the Insane Clown Posse, consider just who is going to be seeing your profile.

This is not at all to say that your profile has got to be strictly business, in fact that is not the case at all. Posting photos, updating your status, joining groups, and sharing your favorite activities make you a real person. That kind of transparency is a great way to build trust and have others feel comfortable doing business with you. Just keep it clean!
