No matter what selection above applies to you, LinkedIn is a platform that is both helpful and NECESSARY for you. How? Let’s get into it…

#1 Exposure

So many of us are involved in multiple projects. How are you keeping everyone apprised of the great work you are doing? LinkedIn is a fantastic way to document this and write about your experiences. Are you feeling inspired to start right now??? 

#2 Networking

Networking is a good thing. In fact, it is AMAZING. Every job I have ever had came from networking. Every article I have written or been featured in is attributed to networking. Working with my clients and starting my own company also came down to me embracing networking. Networking is my #1 thing to do each and every day. It is not something to fear or hide from. Guess what? LinkedIn makes networking so much easier. The platform is created for just that. You can make new connections, message people in your field(s) you want to get to know. Plus, you can write articles or share content that motivates people to connect with you. Isn’t that cool? 

#3 Opportunity 

Are you looking to attend a new event? Maybe start a new side hustle? Or, even get a new client? LinkedIn can TOTALLY help. Need I say more?

#4 Learning 

Learning is how we grow personally and professionally. As a lifelong learner, it is important to identify resources that can help you take in knowledge. LinkedIn not only helps you learn about new careers, job opportunities, and industries, it can help YOU with: 

  • Presenting your story 
  • Inspiring you to try to new things 
  • Reading new books
  • Joining programs, associations, or groups

To be honest, there is NO LIMIT to what you can learn on this platform.
