How to Use LinkedIn for Marketing
Let's be honest: We don't talk about LinkedIn enough. Most of us have an account, but when was the last time you logged into it?

Maybe you've seen other people's LinkedIn success online or you've heard about how "powerful" LinkedIn is for B2B marketers. Even if you haven't, it's indisputable: If you're marketing to other business professionals online, you'll have better reach, better interactions, and better conversion rates using LinkedIn.

Because LinkedIn isn't oversaturated with other audiences. LinkedIn is a platform that everybody on it has a purpose. And because LinkedIn is giving more to its' users than ever before.

In this hour-long webinar, you'll learn everything you need to know to get kickstarted on LinkedIn — including profile optimization tips, where to find your audience on LinkedIn, how to engage with them, and what kind of content works well.

These are strategies & tactics I use every day in my own business to secure new clients, get speaking opportunities, and launch new services in my business. I've spent the past 3 years honing in these techniques to be sure they don't just work for me; they work for my clients, and they'll work for you.

Get your lunch and questions ready! This is going to be an event you won't want to miss.

And if you're curious to see it all in action before the event... Follow me on LinkedIn!
