Of all the social media sites out there now, why should you use LinkedIn for more clients?
My client, John Murphy, interviewed me from his home in France this morning and asked me this very question.
Here are 5 reasons why you should use LinkedIn if you want more clients…
1. If your ideal client is a professional, LinkedIn is where they are online.
Simply put, LinkedIn is the world’s largest online professional networking site, with over 300 million members.
2. It’s easy to engage and connect…anywhere you have an internet connection.
Similar to face-to-face networking, on LinkedIn you have the opportunity to introduce yourself, find out about what your ideal clients are looking for and share your expertise. But, the difference is you can do it at your convenience…in your pajamas or from the beach, if you want!
3. It’s easy to drive traffic to your site, your list and get new clients.
Whether fellow LinkedIn members first encounter you in groups or search results, if you have a system in place you’ll know exactly the right thing to do, when, to lead them to your site, to your community to actually becoming your client.
For example, LinkedIn is where 99% of my new clients find me. I nurture our relationship from our first interaction through to becoming my client. It works like magic…AND it’s highly automated!
4. It’s easy to share your expertise.
Whether through your status updates or via Groups, you can get your message out in less than 5 minutes a day with tools like HootSuite and the LinkedIn Sharing Bookmarklet.
Getting your message out consistently will help you be seen an as expert in your field and a thought leader.
And again, when you have a system in place to maximize your visibility and deepen relationships, you’ll have new clients in no time.
5. It’s easy to leverage.
Use tools and/or have an assistant do most of the work and heavy lifting for you to make it easier to get more clients on LinkedIn.
