Many times business people find themselves in the midst of a high pressure business situation. There are business problems. Business decisions need to be made.

Professional Headline

By: Viveka Friday May 20, 2016 0 comments Tags: Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn headline, LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn Tips

Your professional headline, the area just underneath your name, is a short (120 character) description of who you are and what you do. Most people will just have their title at company, but they dont actually take the time to describe who they are and what they do. The 120 character limit is not a lot, it is about the length of a sentence; however, it is far better than just writing your title and company, especially if your company name doesnt fully describe what your company does. So, use the professional headline. It is a great place to put... Read More


Keywords are Key to being Found

By: Viveka Saturday April 30, 2016 0 comments Tags: Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn profiles, LinkedIn keywords, LinkedIn Tips

LinkedIn is similar to Google in that if you have the right keywords in the right places you are much more likely to be found in a search. It is actually easier than Google. Many may already know what their keywords are, but on LinkedIn make sure to keep it simple! When people are looking for you, or someone like you, they may be looking for a social media strategist or a social media marketer. They may be looking for an accountant, but they are not going to search forensics wizard. The simpler and straight-forward your keywords are, the... Read More

There’s A Difference Between Failing And Failure In Business – by Howard Lewinter

By: Howard Lewinter Wednesday April 20, 2016 0 comments Tags: Howard Lewinter, business tip, business success, business failure

There is something that all very successful business people have in common: They failed at something. They failed at a business, they may have failed at several businesses. They may have failed with a marketing plan or make a mistake in the production of a product. The business landscape is littered with failures. The difference is these business people may be failing but they are not failures. Theres a big difference. These are business people who are willing to try something. Theyre willing to take calculated risks. Theyre... Read More


Wise Up with WiseStamp

By: Viveka Friday April 15, 2016 0 comments Tags: wisestamp, email signature, High Quality Leads, LinkedIn

The problem with releasing a new product like HQL is that you have to choose what information and strategies to include invariably leaving out some really cool tools and tactics! So I must tip my hat to Shawn who rightly pointed out that I did not mention the very cool WiseStamp email signature tool that I use. (To be fair to me, High Quality LinkedIn Leads is about a LinkedIn Messenger strategy, not email.) But he is right, if you dont know about WiseStamp well, you should! WiseStamp allows you to create... Read More

LinkedIn Search Tip: Your Connections’ Connections

Searching Your Connections' Connections! My friend Bob Burg says All things being equal, people do business with people they know, like and trust. So this gives you the opportunity to search people you know, like and trust and see the people that they know, like and trust. To do this, all you have to do this is find someone you know, like and trust on LinkedIn and then click on the number of connection (if it's in blue) in their bio section. (If its black, this wont work.) The blue number link will take you down into their profile... Read More


LinkedIn Tools Series: eGrabber Email Prospector

By: Viveka Friday April 1, 2016 0 comments Tags: Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Prospecting, eGrabber, LinkedIn Tips

eGrabber To get the email address, phone number, and other contact and company information for a prospect, I use a tool called Email Prospector by eGrabber. This tool is awesome because it essentially fills in the holes of information that you have on your prospects. You may have a name and company but no email address. Or you know their company and title but cannot remember their name. Simply put in all the information that you know from LinkedIn or other sources, and eGrabber will look for everything else. Through a... Read More

Using Google to Find Connections

What to do when LinkedInwon't give you a Name! Occasionally, we have to go beyond LinkedIn to find the names of our connections, and one of the first tools you can use to find the name of a "LinkedInMember" is Google! Google Site Search For example - when looking for the marketing people over at Zulilywith a free account -LinkedIngave me a few folk''s first name and last initial, and several "LinkedInMember" results (inviting me to upgrade to see more).
