Your effective LinkedIn network can be one of your biggest assets as you build your business. It gives you the power of marketing to a global audience of over 365 million (updated June 2015) professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners.
There are many ways to grow and nurture your effective LinkedIn network, and one thing you’ll definitely need is a system. A system that ensures you’re doing the right thing at the right time for maximum impact and the best possible results…without feeling overwhelmed or frustrated…or being annoying.
But be forewarned: If you want people to actually join your network on LinkedIn and become your clients, there are several crucial components you must incorporate into your system to make sure it works and inspires ACTION.
The most important is that you lead with value. It could be sharing your expertise, offering referrals, introductions or something of value for free…like a teleseminar, a report, an audio, a video training, etc.
And you’ll get a far better response from other LinkedIn members when you personalize your interactions as much as possible…it always pays.
So, what does your effective LinkedIn system need?
There are many elements that can increase your results, but to give you a quick start I’ve broken it down into 6 essentials that consistently work for me, my clients and they can work for you too!
1. Attract. How will you get the attention of the 330+ million other LinkedIn members around the world? Beyond your profile, obviously…
2. Respond. It’s imperative that you make the most of every interaction to lead LinkedIn members to taking the next step with you.
3. Connect. After you’ve provided value to a fellow LinkedIn member and they’ve engaged with you, ask if they want to connect. This last part is critical because it will keep your account from getting restricted.
4. Effective LinkedIn Updates. Post 4 updates a day, with the right mix of content and promotion. Use HootSuite to preschedule your posts in 5 minutes each morning.
5. Effective LinkedIn Publishing. Use this newest LinkedIn feature to position yourself as an expert and thought leader, who is legitimate and credible.
6. Effective LinkedIn Groups. Yet another avenue to position yourself as an expert and thought leader and invite LinkedIn members to take the next step with you…IF you know what to do!
With these 6 effective LinkedIn essentials in place, you can start seeing better results as soon as today!
