Yes. LinkedIn is a free networking web site for business people that is growing by 6 new members per second. Would you want to miss out on a potential lead source that only requires minimal time to manage once your profile is set up?
There are account upgrades available for varying types of users (recruiter, job seeker, sales & business) for varying monthly subscription fees. However, I think that one can accomplish a lot without having to pay. Here are some of the main things to remember when embarking on a new social media journey on LinkedIn:
- Complete your profile. All sections should be filled in as completely as possible.
- Have a professional photo.
- Join a few groups.
- Expand your network.
Upcoming blog posts will delve into more details on each of these segments so do check back or sign up for the RSS feed.
