What makes LinkedIn a networking must for business professionals?
With over 546 million members across 200 countries LinkedIn is the largest business networking platform on the planet. LinkedIn provides an opportunity to build relationships with business leaders, company decision makers, and industry professionals.
For businesses and individuals engaged in Business-to-business (B2B) sales, LinkedIn is long and by far the best social engine for generating leads. B2B marketers report that 80% of leads sourced online are from LinkedIn.
With one in three professionals across the world on LinkedIn and two more joining every second the question remains: How do I stand out on LinkedIn!
Leslie Hughes, LinkedIn specialist and Principal of Punch Media, joins Kyle Paterson, Bryson’s Director of Culture and Business Development, to answer this very question. It all comes back to creating a strong first impression, generating high quality connections, and developing strategies to nurture relationships that convert into business success.
