There’s been a lot of buzz about LinkedIn recently, and that’s because the platform is going in a new direction, creating a lot of new social selling opportunities. What should our first action be to align ourselves with this new transition? How do we start building relationships and connections? What marketing techniques and tools can we employ? In this episode, marketing strategist, consultant, and LinkedIn trainer, Deborrah Ashely shares how we can leverage LinkedIn, and why now is the right time to do it.

3 Takeaways

LinkedIn has shifted from a recruiting platform to a content creation platform. There are only 10% of LinkedIn users posting on a regular basis so there’s a lot of opportunity. 

In your “About” section, tell a story in a way that speaks to your ideal client, don’t make it a place to rehash your resume. 

A lot of the relationship building and connecting on LinkedIn happens in the messenger and on the feed in other people’s content.
