  • 1. Tips To Building Your Own LinkedIn Inc.By: Ram GuptaIf people are minting money from a socialnetworking site like LinkedIn and you are not, thereis a reason for you to sit back and review yourstrategy. There are a lot many people out there whoare making tons of money from LinkedIn, Twitterand Facebook.There are a number of ways you could use LinkedInprofitably.

But how do you do that, no one is goingto spill the beans and increase their competition. Yet,you will find people offering mentoring or trainingon a one on one basis. This will surely be anexpensive proposition, but then all businessesrequire some investment or the other.The second way is to join or subscribe to anestablished online training and learning institutionand acquire the required skills.You should be careful in selecting your mentor orthe training institution as the web world is full ofpeople waiting to rip your wallet.Having said, that here are few tips that I followed tostart marketing my business on LinkedIn.

  • 5. Select and Join Your Interest GroupsThe best aspect about LinkedIn is the huge numberof professional groups in the system. I think there ishardly and profession, activity or business without anumber of groups for each and every segment, nicheor sub segment.With so many groups available it becomes quite atask to select the right one. I simply check the groupstats and look for activity within the group.

  • 6. Why join a group. Well the entire networking andlead generation is through group and itsmembers. Using LinkedIn and not joining groups islike having an inactive bank account.
  • 7. Start Interaction – Join discussionsJust joining the groups will not take you anywhere.You must go through discussions and chose onesthat interest you. Get involved in these discussions.Add value packed comments that will pull potentialleads to youNot just this, you initiate a couple of discussions onyour own. Chose a topic that will be of interest toother members of the group. Your aim should be tobecome and remain a top influencer in most of yourgroups by quality of your discussions andcomments. LinkedIn displays the top influencer’sgraphic in its side bar. That is how your startbuilding “You” brand, creating a “pull” towards you.

Once you haveidentified people who show interest, move thediscussion offline; get into a phone or Skype
