Linkedin and your profile

As part of his homework last week, one of my clients updated his Linkedin profile. He then sent messages out to a number of his contacts to add them to his network. He was totally surprised at how quickly one of those contacts responded. He hadn’t talked to this person in some time. And now that person is suggesting a meeting to talk about potential business.

Is your Linkedin profile up to date? Have you taken the time to look for contacts that you are targeting and add them to your network? You could be missing out on yet another potential client source. And have you approached clients on Linkedin to ask them for recommendations? Block out an hour or two of your time today and get your Linkedin profile up to date. And then approach contacts and clients. What do you have to lose?
