What’s Up LinkedIns Sleeve in Q1?

LinkedIn is coming up with some pretty cool new tools to help employees with the connection and engagement within their own companies on LinkedIn. A big thank you to Re/Tool Blog for reporting the latest and greatest! Intra Office Communication Tool These new intra-office tools will help employees not only to stay connected, but will encourage the sharing of contact info. It appears to be a CRM system similar to Salesforce, but embedded within LinkedIn. There is no word yet as to what this will cost and if it is in fact just a revamp of the current relationship between LinkedIn and Salesforce through the Sales Navigator tool. You can read more about this new tool here: http://recode.net/2015/01/13/upcoming-linkedin-products-connect-coworkers/ Redesigned Home Page... Read More

LinkedIn Help Forum Giving Us New Answers

Did you know LinkedIn had a help forum? I was chatting with my new LinkedIn friend Huub Ritzema  about LinkedIn's help feature, and he reminded me about their "new" Help forum. Just in case you haven't checked it out yet, it's worth the gander. If you click on "Help Center" at the very very bottom of your profile on the left-hand side, it will take you to  LinkedIn's Help Center.  (The Help Center is also featured in the new UI).  Once you're in the Help Center you can click on Help Forum. From this help forum, you can search questions that have already been asked and answered, or even start your own discussion. So this is nothing like LinkedIn Answers where you could ask questions about anything business related. But at least you can ask questions to the forum... Read More

If Skype and LinkedIn had a secret affair, the result might be hookflash! I recently met Trent Johnsen on one of our #LinkedInChat sand discovered he was the co-founder of hookflash . Hookflash is a really cool iPad app (and business tool) that allows you to make calls and meet your LinkedIn connections face to face (well, over your iPad 2 or 3.) I always say that LinkedIn is just the first step in building relationships, and hookflash takes you to that next needed level of real-time f2f interaction! OK right now it is only available for the iPad, but I am sure other tablets and smart devices are coming soon. According to a recent hook flash blog article, the iPhone is on the way, and then there will be a browser-based version for everyone. ... Read More
