Strategies for Using LinkedIn

187

Published on

LinkedIn is an online network of more than 8.5 million professionals from across the globe representing 130 industries and is a valuable resource for gathering opinions prior to a product, service or company launch; garnering intelligence for articles and public responses to issues; and getting involved in industries or areas of interest through groups.

All these activities present opportunities to pull information from contacts and constituents, and then push relevant information back for increased visibility for actions outside LinkedIn.
