    You might want to look into joining groups who might want your services, as opposed to the idea of joining groups which are in the same line as yours. While the latter can help you rise up the ladder to being considered as one of the experts in your industry, the first one I mentioned is a good way of getting to know your target market. In my opinion, LinkedIn is more of a professional network than a casual social networking site like Facebook. You might want to join other social media sites if you want to see where your target market really hangs out.

    Provide value to people who are interested in what you do. Win.

    It's a simple concept but really critical... Most businesses see social and wonder "how do we market on this place" and while you can often buy ads or build a sort of traditional marketing program, that's not social and not going to produce the "viral" or "organic" win. Instead social is really about being connected to your customers and prospects such that they're seeing information not about you but about the category, about what you do to the point that that you've become accessible. Getting existing customers involved just ups the results bringing more authenticity and diversity to the conversation. Don't sell. Don't push.

    Many people think they can win someone with first contact. This is unrealistic thinking.

    a. First contact ----------> Purchase = not going to happen
    b. First contact -----------------------------> Purchase = Will happen

    Case (b):
    1. The long line represents various engagements, discussion with your ideal prospects. When you engage them, they can see value in your talk and will buy or recommend you.

    Continue to engage into LinkedIn, add linkedin apps if you run a blog support products or services of your site, complete profile. You can also find group in your niche and interact with group members by liking, sharing or commenting on their post.

    Very wise words, Linked in is aimed at the professional market, as long as you remain professional you will get good solid leads.

    This is something that people should take note of. There are a lot of people who are thinking of using social networks like LinkedIn to promote whatever it is that they're selling without engaging in conversations with people. They think that if they're just going to advertise right off the bat, they're going to get a customer. That could happen, but that's not always the case, especially if you're selling something that doesn't have that much demand. To cut things short, it's better if you're going to build your reputation first before anything else on these social networks. This isn't just limited to LinkedIn.

    In addition to joining groups you should answer questions on LinkedIn. Find some questions that are relevant to your expertise or field and give good solid answers. Once you become "known" in your field in that forum, people will recognize your name, and be more to so business with you.

    I found that, as everybody else has mentioned - By joining groups which are relevant to your niche, taking part in discussions and posting useful information. Also post your a link to any blog or article which you feel would be of interest. Your sure to get a decent following

    While your ideas are good, there is an infinite difference between a following on Social Media and a "lead" for your business. What being visible on Social platforms does for you is help potential customers get to know you and your business in a way that participation in their community helps your local merchant. Yet, a lead is a prospective customer that you can follow. Generally you get leads from your colleagues, satisfied customers, and other contacts that have gotten to know you through your participation. The way to get leads on linked in is to ask those in your 1st network to write a recommendation for you. That way, if someone is looking for the service you provide, your profile will become visible to your potential customers. You can also use Linked In job-search. However, usually their jobs are in-house positions rather than geared to freelance.

    Based on my experience, it's easier to to get leads in LinkedIn through connection and groups. But just by merely browsing LinkedIn, you can do your own keyword or tag research there and LinkedIn will provide you profiles with similar interest. It's also better if you have mutual connections to get better reputation and friend invitation acceptance.

    Agreed. Groups are the way to go. Get in there and BE HELPFUL. Make connections, engage, and help people. They might not become clients on first contact (and they most likely won't) but they might after you build that relationship by being helpful and having a good reputation.

    LinkedIn has always seemed like more of a place to hunt for a new gig than anything else. And since I haven't been in the job market for a while, I've paid it little mind.

    As mentioned, GROUPS, join in, offer advice and opinions without being salesy and people will be more receptive. another good one I have seen is to get recommendations and link those to your website. They are much more credible than anonymous testamonials.
