I remember when they first started out and we were jumping in early on. There were a few thousand. It has grown in its services and usefulness along with the growth in registered users. What I hear all the time from folks is — “oh, I keep getting invitations from LinkedIn but I don’t know what to do with them!
LinkedIn is definitely different from Twitter and Facebook and the many other social networks out there. As a business owner, I see it as an essential component of my online presence. It is a wonderful resource for connecting to other business owners and professionals.
I build a network on LinkedIn and then work to build relationships just like with every other networking venture. It’s all about relationships, credibility, expertise and service.
I will be sharing with folks tomorrow some of the essentials in building a credible and worthwhile LinkedIn presence.
