By: Viveka Tuesday June 28, 2011 comments Tags: LinkedInExpert, LinkedIn Advice, #LinkedInChat, #SMManners, @DabneyPorte


So I’m doing double duty tonight – hosting my #LinkedInChat and then as a guest on #SMManners.

Where to tune in?

We are taking #LinkedInChat back to until we get the bugs worked out at Stanzr – and I am still open to any information on a good tweetchat transcription tool that doesn’t cost and arm and a leg or take several hours to repair J

Tonight we’ll be talking about the different ways and strategies of finding, connecting and building relationships with people on LinkedIn.

If you want homework – the questions will be:

Q1.  How many connections do you have and what is the size of your network?

Q2.  Do you have any difficulty finding and connecting/ communicating with to the people you need to on #LI

Q3.  Do you use “Advanced Search” and what are your favorite strategies?

Q4.  Do you know about and/or are you using LinkedIn Signal?

Q5.  Do you know about how to use groups to “reverse engineer” a message?

Q6.  What do you consider spam on LinkedIn?

Q7.  What are your best “LinkedIn Communications Tips?”


Transcript for tonight's #LinkedInChat is here:
