1 thing every new business developer should do daily on LinkedIn

28 May, 2010 McKell Naegle

Many of us use LinkedIn to develop our personal networks.

But do we really use it effectively?

Is it an online Rolodex for us?

A status symbol showing how many “friends” we have that we compare to others?

Or, is it a tool that we continually mine to keep people close and aware of who we are and what we do?

Chris Brogan discusses some great items about how to effectively use LinkedIn in this article.

One of the points he makes rings true to me:

Schedule Some Time

Go in there and look around for about 20-30 minutes every week to start. See what you see. Are there opportunities in there? Download your contacts as a spreadsheet and pore through them every now and again. See someone you should connect with? See someone you haven’t talked with in a while? Drop them a line. That’s the real meat of this. You can do lots once you get into a few really simple habits. But it requires you to schedule the time and go through with it.
