  • I want to welcome everybody to session 1. Everybody has found the questions area of the GoToWebinar task bar.In our training, what we want to do is make sure you are learning, retaining and doing what we say to help you generate business.Session 1 is the fundamentals. All of you should have a basic account to get started, even if it’s a shell.Everything we’re going to show you is for the free version—that’s the good news. Paid subscribers will see some additional options.
  • Everyone on the call today is concerned with how to build a good, targeted network and find new business.Even though this is sales driven, if you’re a career mover. When you’re using the same strategies as sales. Call it recruiting or something else.All LinkedIn is about connecting your network and getting where you want to go.How to build your personal targets. That is our goal.

  • We train Fortune 500 to sole proprietors. Regardless of size, the reason that some aren’t succeeding is the mindset.You are on this call because you are trying to learn what it’s all about. You have the right mindset. What you need to do is make sure you’re working within your organization to keep this top of mind.One company, during the 4 weeks we worked with them had 100 new appointments collectively. Top appointment setter had 17 in one week. Depends on your goal. Talk to team members, have a team conversation. Students that are succeeding are bringing this knowledge into their weekly meetings, measuring ROI, making investment in knowledge. Have the right mindset for generating business.
  • Even top networkers sometimes need reminders about his—integrate your efforts. All kinds of different groups. Top networkers are the “hub”

  • Most of you are adding people to your core network. On your screen you’ll see “Bob” and “Sue” and this is what typically happens.We meet people and we add them to our Blackberry or our contact management database and if we’re really good, we’ll put in some key elements of the relationship and maybe even determine what kind of business we’ll be able to do with them.The magic here is that if Sue is too busy or we’re not a fit for her right now, LinkedIn and other social networks make it easy for Sue to recommend us without working too hard.Think about the network hubs you have—you want to be top of mind with them. Also want to see the people that Sue is connected with so you can ask “Would you mind making an introduction to (specific name)—looks like an ideal connection.”The other day the Sue I was talking to said, “You know what, that person might not be a great fit, but I’ve got some others.” Unfortunately doesn’t always happen, want to be able to make a direct connection.What we’re seeing is that people are coming from 2 and 3 levels away. We’ve had it happen where someone from 3rd level and they read a blog post and really made an impact on them that led to a call to us.
  • Start with poll.
  • Take out a blank sheet of paper. What are you an expert in? Answer that.Some of you are real estate. Some of you are in manufacturing. Some of you sell legal services. All different flavors on the call today.What would your prospect search for in order to find you?HR departments also searching, works for career development as well.Next to the words, write what your prospect calls it. Make sure it’s not just industry jargon.When we get to the areas, we’ll show you where it’s important to use these.People are looking for experts every second of the day on LinkedIn.
