Viveka von Rosen started using LinkedIn in 2006 when she saw a presentation on the opportunities of Business Networking with LinkedIn. Having doubled her own business with F2F networking, she saw the immense potential of a business online networking site.
Viveka is known internationally as the “LinkedIn Expert” and speaks to business owners, corporations, Legal Firms and associations on the benefits of marketing with social media, and in particular LinkedIn.
Author of “LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour A Day” for John Wiley & Sons, she is also a regular source on LinkedIn for prestigious news outlets such as Mashable.com, Ragan.com, SocialMediaExaminer.com, CNN.com and The Miami Herald.
Viveka is the host of the biggest LinkedIn chat on Twitter: #LinkedInChat (Recently quoted by Mashable as one of the top 10 business blogs) and co-moderator of LinkedStrategies, the largest LinkedIn strategy group on LinkedIn. She is constantly learning, sharing and transferring social media skills and strategies to her tribe.
Viveka has 28,000+ first level connections and a network of over 29 million people on LinkedIn, and 48,000+ followers on Twitter. Her seminars, webinars and workshops have taught and trained well over 10,000 people.
She was also recently listed:
As CEO of Linked Into Business, Viveka enables business professionals to make personal connections in a professional manner. When her clients make strides in their careers, she has met her objective.
Viveka focuses on working with entrepreneurs, people who are either in business for themselves or want to be. “So often we are on the verge of success but either don’t have the marketing background or self belief to make it… It’s all about relationship building and showing my clients how to transform the relationships they already have into channels of income.”
The social media movement makes sense to her because she believes that people – at personal and professional levels – ultimately want to connect with other people. Viveka saw LinkedIn’s potential early on, and pursued connections and learning opportunities persistently.
Viveka maintains that there are plenty of free or inexpensive ways to grow a business. The hardest part? Actually doing the steps it takes, focusing and strategizing. And that’s where the mentoring comes in.
She tells her clients, “Social Media is a great tool to express your genius and who you are.” It is the opposite of anonymity.. “It gives individuals the ability to share your voice, feelings, beliefs and some people hear them, as opposed to just being an unheard peon in a marriage, at work, or in a church. A lot of people feel unheard and unsupported, as if they have no meaning. Social media gives each person the opportunity to speak, gain a tribe and have some meaning.”
Viveka comes to Linked Into Business with a broad skill set, including sales, education, marketing, ministering, and as a competitive hang glider pilot. She credits her parents for her core values of honesty, faithfulness and integrity.
She is grateful for great parents, good friends, and a good life. To her Social Media is just a tool – one that she deftly wields to accomplish what she is truly passionate about: coming into your own, empowered and moving into a space where you can lift others up.
Viveka has been creating social media programs for several years. So if your company or industry wants to appear as a thought leader, email Viveka at Viveka@linkedintobusiness.com and speak with her about your desires to create a social media training program for your industry. Her personal mission statement is “linking people to their potential using social media”
