Hey Shari,

What a fantastic list of resources to educate your readers, myself included of course, on the incredible potential that is available to us once we are Linked In!

I plan on coming back to your site when I have a little more time Shari and give these road maps a closer look!

Thanks so much for sharing,

Hi Shari,

LinkedIn can be very powerful when your profile is optimized and you are networking with like minded people. I have made some great contacts through LinkedIn resulting in business partners both locally and world wide.

Thanks for spreading the word! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the useful LinkedIn tips Shari. We are noticing more traffic to our website from our LinkedIn personal profiles, but could do with getting more traffic and interest from our company profile page. I read your May 28th post on this which is very informative and I am sure will help us build more exposure for our Company Page!

Thanks for a great informative list of resources!
LinkedIn is a great network which can help you find work. It has almost 65 million registered users…
Yesterday I started writing a post on how to incorporate google+ posts into linkedin (and to use social media file for your job search) I’ll notify you
when it it is ready.

Thank you for a very informative post. I still don’t have a LinkedIn account yet, but I will probably get one in 2013. I feel like I spend too much time online already, that would just create another reason to be online too long.

LinkedIn is expanding quickly and its now the 3rd larger social media site. If somebody hasn’t an account on LinkedIn now its the time to think about registering otherwise he may miss a lot of good things.
That’s a very helpful list of advice and tips!
Thanks for sharing with us!

Hello Shari, thank you for this LinkedIn post, and I also really enjoyed your LinkedIn article about customizing one’s LikedIn Profile for maximum find-ability. Both post were very helpful to me. Especially about using KeyWords in the Specialties section. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
