LinkedIn can open the door to new markets for small business owners and entrepreneurs if they have a strategy that uses the right LinkedIn tools.
New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 07, 2011
Millions of people are connected on LinkedIn; few of them know how to use those connections. Ventureneer’s new, free webinar, LinkedIn: Unpublished Tips, Trends, and Insider Secrets, will show small business owners how to leverage their LinkedIn profile with previously unpublished tips and tools.
Small business marketing is no longer restricted by geography. Customers are everywhere. It's a whole new way of thinking, a whole new way of marketing, a whole new source of potential profit that LinkedIn can help you tap.
The instructor, Jan Wallen, literally wrote the book on LinkedIn. She’s the author of Mastering LinkedIn in 7 Days or Less: The Easiest Way to Maximize LinkedIn to Boost Your Sales and Grow Your Business. Wallan publishes an eColumn with articles, tips, and advice from expert users of LinkedIn.
But even she has not published all there is to know … until now. In this online seminar, Wallen will fill in the gaps, with information on:
*How to get new business and new clients with LinkedIn.
*How to really stand out and differentiate yourself and your company with LinkedIn Add-In *Applications, SlideShows, and Videos.
*How to find the best referrals and the people who can refer clients to you.
*How to leverage the connections and relationships you already have to grow your business.
*How LinkedIn fits with the in-person networking (meetings, lead groups, etc.) that you already do.
*How to determine if LinkedIn or in-person networking will work better for a particular goal.
*Time-saving tips to make LinkedIn and social networking easier to do -- for people who don’t have all day.
The new webinar will give small business owners and solo-preneurs the strategies to tap vast pool of LinkedIn connections to find the people they need -- suppliers and potential partners -- and to be found by those millions of customers.
"LinkedIn can open the door to new markets for small business owners and entrepreneurs if they have a strategy that uses the right LinkedIn tools," says Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.
The online seminar takes place Thursday, February 17, from 2-3pm ET
and will cover the unpublished tips mentioned above as well as touch on the basics:
*What is LinkedIn?

*Your LinkedIn Profile: Make it compelling!
