  • The LinkedIn Glee group does this number together.It’s to connect ALL the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful.
  • We’re making great strides toward our mission:**As of March 31, 2012, LinkedIn has 161 million members, and we’re now adding about two members every second. This is the fastest rate of absolute member growth in the company’s history. Sixty-one percent of LinkedIn members are currently located outside of the United States.As of March 31, 2012 (the end of the third quarter), LinkedIn counts executives from all 2011 Fortune 500 companies as members; its corporate hiring solutions are used by 82 of the Fortune 100 companies.More than 2 million companies have LinkedIn Company Pages.LinkedIn members did nearly 4.2 billion professionally-oriented searches on the platform in 2011, and are on pace to do 5.3 billion in 2012.[See for a complete list of LinkedIn facts and stats]
  • Who is a member of the Chronicle’s LinkedIn group? 21,000 people are.In addition to your 5 homework items due tomorrow at lunch…Add to this discussion!My goal is to have 500 comments from all of you on how you’re using LinkedIn to build presence, relationships and engagement.The more you share, the more we all succeed.

I’m looking for all the teachers and evangelists we can enlist!Learn more from our amazing evangelists and supporters at their sites.Search with “linkedIn” on any of their sites. You’ll like what you find.
  • Who feels like they have a great LinkedIn member profile? It all starts here.Look at mine sometime soon. It’s quite complete and vibrant.It’s ot just recruiting teams searching this information now.Everything you add can be seen by the world-donors, partners, clients, volunteers, future staff, etc etc.Quick Tips- Use this vessel wisely. 1. Click on “Edit Profile” Bring your personality to your profile & set yourself apart. Tell a story, don’t just state the facts.Include your ask.2. Be a proactive connector, not necessarily an open networker.
  • Get your whole team singing the same song like we did earlier…Complete profiles, intentional connecting, key-words and asks.
  • Who knew they also had a “company” page or organization profile on LinkedIn?2 billion searches happened on LinkedIn last year. Billions more on search engines to find you.Billions of others clicked on their professional friends “company” after LinkedIn stalking them.BACR, seen here, just starting their journey with us.Tip-Be sure what donors, volunteers, future staff and partners see an ask and a good story when they arrive at your company page. 1.)Use your work e-mail on linkedin. It will associate you with you “company page”2.) Click on Admin tools (if you can). 3.) Add you logo4.) Make your ask at top5.) Connect everyone on staff if count is low (especially board)…BACR needs work here.

  • Goldies Place, a small nonprofit in Chicago fighting homelessness used LinkedIn Recruiter and a Job Slot to attract and secure multiple board members in almost no time.They posted this “Job” which put them in front of thousands of senior executives in Chicago with board experience.When they posted, Linkedin matched them with 50 perfect candidates.The in-Mail on the right was sent to 30 candidates- 7 or 8 responded.Multiple senior people saw the opening in the “jobs you may be interested in” box at right - One of those had a 2nd degree connection and had her contact reach a current memberA few lunches later they had two great new board members.We discount the services used to do this.
