Do you use it?
In what ways?
How does it help your business?
That's funny you posted this. I was thinking about joining today and am curious as well to know if joining will increase my exposure.
I joined today.
Got 2 connections already . . . who have 80 connections . . . who have a network of 7600.
Sounds like I need to get in PPL and capitalize on my new connections . . .
That's outstanding! I see you have been busy with getting your profile out there. Looks good. Well done Bob.
Yes, but there is some kind of upgrade. Still playing around with it.
I now have 5 connections and have 2 degrees of separation from 140 people and 13,700 connections within 3 degrees.
This is really cool.
Something else to distract me from writing business . . .
LOL. I know what you are saying. I just joined and there is a 6 degrees of separation scenario going on over there.
I have contacts I forgot I knew and am even finding old college friends and roommates.
What I like is the system scanned my outlook and all my clients emails are in there (sniffs out ALL emails in the inbox), which is a potentially good thing considering they might be kind enough to recommend me as a broker. I am sending requests. The only stipulation with recommendations is you have to have a connection first in order to ask for a recommendation.
I see the upgrade. Not entirely sure what you get by paying, other than being able to see other linkedIn profiles in greater detail.
Looks like I have a connection to Dick Cheney and Barack Obama . . .
Now if I could only get connected to Beyonce' . . .
Beyonce' would be sweet. However, you might have to Paypal her for Royalties.
LinkedIn is pretty cool. I am working to get my profile at 100% and am asking for some recommendations. I think you need three in order to become 100%.
Overall, I am glad I put a profile together as it is a professional networking site and can be of benefit in the future. Basically, every once in a while, it makes sense for me to have it scan my emails and see who is LinkedIn and can provide a way to get recommendations and referrals. Too early to tell. I have asked a client of mine for a recommendation and will see how he takes to it.
I have joined... and am amazed of the amount of people on here that I know who are already members...
Thanks for the Tip guys!
