LinkedIn for start-ups: Part 1 – Profile tips
Mark Lee cuts through the hype and explains how start-up practices can get best value from LinkedIn.
Regular readers will recall that I have long believed that LinkedIn is a serious online business networking tool. It’s very different to more “social” sites such as Facebook and Twitter. That said, LinkedIn is constantly evolving, and has taken a backward step with one recent change.
Before we get to thatn issue, this article will set the scene for a three-part series on how LinkedIn can help the solo practitioner.
Register for free with AccountingWEB and log in to read the full article, which covers:

The second and third parts of this series will address the topics of connection requests, endorsements, recommendations, groups, and lead generation on Linkedin. In the meantime by all means connect with me there. And feel free to post comments below if you have questions, ideas or views on any of the above.
