Understanding and enhancing the value of professional connectivity 

Do you use LinkedIn as a tool to generate enquiries or to build your business contacts? If so then this webinar will give you some practical tips on how to get the most of your profile. 
 
It used to be the case that LinkedIn was just a place to put a copy of your CV online and wait for recruitment agencies to approach you. Whilst that does still happen, today LinkedIn is a platform that offers an online place to network, raise your professional profile and find sales leads. 

This webinar will cover:

  • How to update your profile to show you at your best and attract connections 
  • How to gain endorsements and recommendations from your connections 
  • How to search for new sales leads 
  • Strategies for building your network
  • Whether company pages are worth setting up and how to make the best use of them within your business 
  • LinkedIn Premium

Webinar Outcome:
After attending this webinar, you will be able to update your profile to be optimised for LinkedIn searching. You’ll also be able to use the search features to find potential leads and prospects and expand your network.
