--------------- The Chat: ---------------
I’ll be moving over to with to have an open ended on
Welcome, everyone, to this week's 30 min Twitter Chat! You may find the questions for this chat at http://sw.bcafe.co/gD
Q1 How often do you use LinkedIn and would you consider it one of you main social platforms?
A1) Daily and yes, one of my p
A1 I don't use often enough. That said, I do use it more often than Google+
Hey Con! Hope you are doing well!
That is a good question! Maybe a survey would help us determine that. Then again, there has probably already been one!
Q2 Do you have plans to use LinkedIn more frequently? If not, what stands in the way?
No offense to G+, but I have to forcefully remind myself to use it. Somehow, it was easier before all the changes years back
I think they voted with their feet that's if they ever showed up in the first place!
You're too funny Con! ROFL
A2) I do both in terms of content & growing connections but available time is always a factor
A2 I have plans to spice up my LinkedIn profile and use it a little more. However, it is relatively complete, according to LI.
Agreed, I think the mistake was not admitting pseudonyms
Need to develop those business relationships on Twitter? Use You'll love it!
We're like Burns & Allen of
Q3 What features of LinkedIn are appealing? What needs improvement?
Remember what I blogged once, an unused profile no matter how good is no different than an obituary!
A3) There are so few left on ! is a good model for them
A3 Actually, I like the idea of 1) finding people; 2) seeing what they are up to now; and 3) communicating with them in messages
I have to think on that one, Con. It almost when over my head.. lol
That is exactly what I was thinking after I typed it! (ref: A3)
Well, it is late! (At least by me!)
Since you are a expert, what features do you feel set it apart from other social platforms, ?
Q4 Any tips or strategies you care to share as we wrap up this discussion on LinkedIn?
Wanna bet it happens some day?
Sidebar: I promised a summary (last wk) with a free download. I have that, with possibly more than one freebie... more later
Honestly, the only real feature has is a database of business connections! They're removed all the useful ones!
That is a good way to sum it up, Ok, now I get your obituary comment.
Q4 One thing that I did was to schedule a time each week where I would spend time endorsing people (thoughtfully)
And, percolating on all that is saying, that makes sense. , for me, is basically a business directory.
A4) For what it's worth, is the only game in town Have a complete profile Grow connections & publish
I do use all the time as my online resume - so much quicker than uploading the resume (same data anyway)
You don't read my blog? I'm hurt!
And I am sure that paid you good relations. 👌 everyone needs to do more of it.
I do recall reading that one (and your blog). I know it is early here, but I think my brain cells are on EDT.. lol
With a lot of wasted potential!
It did Thanks. I was sincere and others repaid it likewise. You are right :) Worked best when I scheduled time.
Then what is your take on LinkedIn pulse and blogging on LinkedIn?
Personally, I probably don't read it enough, or write there. That is the goal (when I am free from writing elsewhere) - Con?
I recommend doing it One of the few ways left to stand out on
That sounds like good advice. What do you think, ?
With that I'll take my leave! Thanks for joining! See everyone next week!
Personally even I haven't used it much. But during a discussion at my tweet chat, felt it adds a lot to personal branding
Oh my - we are hitting our 30 min mark here in I see has bid his farewell! It's been great! See you next week.
Of course it's good advice! I wrote it! ;)
Especially when we are more consistent and valuable.
I'll hang around for a bit, as we always like to leave the chat open for chatting even after the bell rings. :)
Good point. I agree with you on the personal (and business) branding component. And, yes, with consistency (definitely).
That is 1 of the things that has caused my delay. I want to ensure that I am consistent and haven't started until I can ensure
It is indeed! But I feel we need to be more selective and valuable in our works there. Since we might only want to best on LiN
Same here! 😊🙌 but that ensured point is never coming to me... 😁
Good way to put it! More selective and valuable!
Hi peeps - please feel free to share your profile links so we can connect Thanks!
