Become A LinkedIn Time Management Pro

  1. 1. LinkedIn Time Management Pro <ul>Some people will spend hours upon hours on LinkedIn trying to build their business, get more leads and ultimately try to drive more sales. The key to any effective social media or networking strategy is to effectively manage the amount of time you spend there to turn the highest return on investment. In less than 3 hours a week, you can turn Linkedin into a powerful networking tool. </ul>
  2. 2. Start With A Schedule <ul>Start by developing your own schedule but use the following as example. I have a daily, weekly and monthly schedule that I follow that allows me to allocate just a few hours per month but has literally exploded my contacts, networking and I now have people coming TO ME instead of me trying to hunt them down. </ul>
  3. 3. Daily To Do Schedule <ul><li>Review your homepage and respond to your LinkedIn messages and invitations within your account (Stay Prompt & Timely With People)
  4. 4. Look over your network activity and be sure to note events, projects, comments and questions
  5. 5. Look over your LinkedIn Groups and respond to any questions you have the answers to
  6. 6. Invite anyone you met the previous day </li></ul>
  7. 7. Daily To Do Schedule <ul><li>Post up any blog links, article links or helpful information you might have in your status box (Do Not Spam!)
  8. 8. Be helpful in your groups and only link out to helpful topics and information. For every group you post a link out to, make sure you post the entire article on your 3-4 th post.
  9. 9. Do not always link out! Be helpful at all times </li></ul>
  10. 10. Weekly To Do Schedule <ul><li>Look over events to see if anyone you know may have posted one you could attend. Also, be sure to conduct a weekly search to see if there are any events you don't know about in your area
  11. 11. Check out any groups your “trusted” connections are joining to see if they are helpful to you
  12. 12. Review profile updates from your “trusted” </li></ul>
  13. 13. Weekly To Do Schedule <ul><li>Spend some time in the LinkedIn Answers section and provide any helpful answers and information you can. Try to devote 1 hour weekly to do this. I like to do this on weekends.
  14. 14. Post up the most important articles or information you have across the groups you are a part of.
  15. 15. Create 3 “Saved Searches” and review them every week </li></ul>
  16. 16. Monthly To Do Schedule <ul><li>Review your profile and make any additional changes that you need from what you have learned over the previous month. (Always Be Improving And Enhancing!)
  17. 17. Look over your most trusted contacts and note or invite anyone that is of interest to you
  18. 18. Look over your saved searches. Is there any way to increase those searches' effectiveness? </li></ul>
  19. 19. Monthly To Do Schedule <ul><li>Go through your connections and try to write 3-4 recommendations.
  20. 20. Use the LunchMeet Application to setup at least 1 meet the following month. Do this each month thereafter
  21. 21. Print the latest copy of your profile
  22. 22. Save and print out your connections list. (This is great to review while lounging around!) </li></ul>
  23. 23. Going Forward <ul>Everyone's schedule is different and LinkedIn is constantly changing so plan and implement effectively. Saving and printing your profile and contacts is a “safety-net” in case your information is ever lost. “YES” this has happened on LinkedIn! Consistent maintenance is just consider “Professionalism” in any networking environment! </ul>
