You may remember seeing Director Tom‘s name on this blog before… I think a lot of him. I met him online last year, and then a few weeks later in person, and we’ve had multiple e-mails and phone calls since then. This is a man of high integrity and passion for his art/business.
I asked him to guest blog because I’ve seen how he uses the Answers section of LinkedIn, and think it’s awesome. You can read his thoughts and ideas on it here.
Answers is one of the best features of LinkedIn and gives you an excellent opportunity to reach out to network contacts you have in LinkedIn, as well as find new contacts (as they come across your question). When you answer a question you are reinforcing your personal brand online, could get some business (someone last year got busine$$ from answering one of my questions!), and are throwing your name out there to others that might be interested in contacting with you.
I recommend you check out Director Tom’s website, as well as his guest post (The Power of Questions: 5 Secrets to Strengthen Your Brand) from yesterday!
