Why LinkedInBusiness Focused Social MediaGroups and Connections gives us access to a greater communityHome screen gives you the opportunity to update your status, link to your latest blog or something you want to share inside of LinkedIn. You can also read an article online or comment on something you see – if it has a LI like badge, by clicking it you are updating your status. Great way to do something you are already doing and turn it into an opportunity to grow your presence on the web.
Use the Profile tool to make sure you have updated or provided as much info as possible to make your profile stand out. Look at what other people in your industry are doing to see what information you may want to inclue in your description.
Use the Company Page to profile your business. This is a way to showcase your business, separate from you.
