Why do I recommend marketing on LinkedIn?
All professional business people in the world meet and connect on LinkedIn. The members of LinkedIn are highly qualified and highly educated and consist of 47 million people in over 200 countries. This is the online place where professionals connect with other professionals.
LinkedIn members are achievers like CEO’s and top selling authors. The executives from all the Fortune 500 companies are members. Professionals in the corporate world have the ability to influence other people. LinkedIn members have an average income of $109000. This is people with potential disposable income. LinkedIn is a hotbed for network marketing entrepreneurs. The network marketing industry is potentially a good fit for the members on LinkedIn. With the economic downturn many members experience job insecurity and are looking for other options.
Facebook vs LinkedIn
LinkedIn is not the same type of social network as Facebook. Realize that to use LinkedIn as a lead generation tool you need to be sophisticated in your marketing efforts. None of the Facebook marketing strategies will work on LinkedIn. A new marketing strategy must be used for LinkedIn. If you do not use the right strategy for LinkedIn you will waste a ton of time and energy, get zero results and may get BANNED for life!
On Facebook you have friends and fans and on LinkedIn people have professional connections. On Facebook you sift through the friends you have to get to qualified prospects. Facebook is a social network full of fun and games. LinkedIn is for professionals. People do not want to know about the friends and family of their LinkedIn connections. They are not interested to play online games. They have business connections with other professionals.
How to use LinkedIn to connect:
* Have a professional profile page. * Only have sophisticated interactions with other members. * Have good etiquette in discussion forums. There is a correct way to submit information on LinkedIn. * Do not have weak and ineffective content. Communicate in a professional tone that would be acceptable to well read professionals. * Use comments on articles to connect with the member making the comment. * Do not be a member of a subgroup where you do not fit in or belong. * Give more value in all your articles. * Learn how to follow up with members outside of the LinkedIn community.
