It’s that time of year again… the time when we make and proceed to break our New Year’s resolutions, when we reset our goals and when weight loss ads are peering out of every corner 😉
I always take some time in January to evaluate the previous year, the good and the bad, and set goals for next year.
Many of the people that I’ve run into over the last few weeks have business related goals like do more better networking, finally figure out social media or better manage their business relationships.
If you want to achieve any of these things then it is time to get LinkedIn working for you.
LinkedIn is one of those social networks that everyone is on but nobody uses. If you fall into this boat than NOW is the time to change it! Don’t procrastinate.
All you need is some initial set up time to get your account up to snuff and then dedicate about 15 minutes, 2 – 3 times per week.
You can manage that – right?
Making LinkedIn your resolution is easy and can be very rewarding – both personally and professionally.
Spend some time to make sure that your profile accurately reflects who you are and what your goals are. Create a compelling headline and summary. Update all of your job information.
The key to LinkedIn is maintaining connections. Don’t wait until you need them – always be building your network. In today’s world people change jobs so frequently that LinkedIn is the new business Rolodex (only you don’t have to keep it up to date – they do).
I am always surprised at the number of people that I know (in the real world) that I am not connected with yet.
Here are some ways to stay connected!
The key to sustained success on LinkedIn is staying active. Set aside some time every week to go on LinkedIn and make new connections, participate in groups and update your status. This is where you can really get value from LinkedIn – through virtual networking.
Here are some of the things that you can do on LinkedIn to stay active:
As you can see, there are LOTS of things that you can do to start getting results from LinkedIn. What will you do to get more out of LinkedIn this year?
