I call it social media madness! So many social media sites and platforms that can overwhelm even the most experienced online marketing entrepreneur. However, these social sites — like — Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube and have you checked out Empire Avenue yet?!…. have proven to take businesses to the next level.
But there is a social media myth out there that I wanted to reveal. I can’t tell you how many times I hear …. “Linkedin is not for me.”
That is just plain wrong! In fact, if you are not using Linkedin in marketing your business, products or services – then you are leaving money on the table.
Linkedin has been for job seekers and job recruiters. Large and small companies and corporations use Linkedin when finding and recruiting executives. While that is still true today, it is also true that Linkedin provides small online business and entrepreneurs with a huge platform for leveraging knowledge, ideas and opportunities. Linkedin, in my opinion, is the elite social professional site to build your business with high credibility. Build connections, alliances and more important, gain acceptance as an expert in your business. This alone will attract more visitors to you, gain your trust and turn them into customers or clients.
The key to using Linkedin successfully, will be determined on the proper set up of your Linkedin profile. This includes the appropriate keywords, optimization and completeness of your information.

Recent comment from one of my online business associates:
“Hi Lynn, I agree with you and being a member of LinkedIn I do see the power in it. My problem is I just don’t spend as much time building relationships there as I should be. Thanks for this video and great reminder that I need to get back there and participate more.” Richard Petrillo – www.workwithrichardp.com
