The Social Media Monday theme of July will be LinkedIn again–there is always more to learn! Mashable recently interviewed several young entrepreneurs to pick their brains on getting the most out the professional social media site. Here’s out favorite from the article:
1. Get involved in niche groups
There are specific groups available for many micro-niches on LinkedIn. Becoming active and engaged in these communities is a great way to be seen as an expert and helpful resource. This leads to opportunities for lead generation, networking, partnerships and much more. The key is to give freely in those groups and not expect anything in return. Don’t be the person trying to “sell” yourself in the groups. Give value first, receive later.
