Social Networking Site

Hello Everyone,I know very well Linkedin is very important networking site,but my question is How can I use Linkedin a/c in a professional way?

First you need to ensure you are connected to those you work or have worked with, then you will have access to their networks and can begin to ‘network’ with those who suit your business or needs. Whatever you do, don’t self-promote, people on LinkedIn will ignore you pretty quickly.

Connect according to your work or job. Like if you are a civil engineer, connect with other civil engineers, construction companies and owners of companies that is related to your profession.

Depending on your goals. I suggest creating an own group to get known. Place blogs about your field. and join groups and discussions

Good advice, but do consider your own goals before joining a LinkedIn Group. For instance, as a writer, I joined a bunch of writer groups, which was a stupid move on my part. Other writers are never going to use my services or help in promoting my business. Join and become active in groups about subjects that matter to you other than those associated with your own business. That’s how you will meet and become known to those who can benefit from your services.

Do you mean for yourself or your business? For yourself, build your profile professionally by uploading an updated resume and network with other professionals that could potentially help you get a job (if you need it). It’s all about networking and created references. If it’s for your business, the group account can be created to promote the company and so that others can be informed on it and if you have job openings you can post them. You can also use LinkedIn’s advertising services.

Thanks for starting this thread. I never really understood how Linkedin works in regard of promoting a business. I don’t think Linkedin helps me a lot and i’m still puzzled

Absolutely right, make friends which is niche your topic (relevant to your profession) and share with them or boost the network.

Such a great insight to consider shyflower. This is an excellent advice for people who wants to use the social media properly and effectively.

If you want to use any Social Websites as a business media to exchange business than you should do the following things in your mind:

  1. Use twitter and Facebook and linked with your linked in account so that you don’t need to post again on FB and twitter account
  2. Complete your Profile and provide as much as business content in your profile.
  3. Follow your market and related persons
  4. Keep updating your followers and other marketing professionals about your services and products
  5. Participate and Engage online

A good way to use Linkedin is if you are a professional who has a job in one of the categorical listings on there. Once you are in there, daily or weekly you can add more contacts to your network. This will get you known amongst your business peers, and among other categories as being someone from your field of expertise.
