LinkedIn is not optional.
With that in mind, there are three things you need to know about:
The second edition of my LinkedIn book is shipping, even from Amazon.
It’s been a long time coming! I wrote a post on my LinkedIn blog yesterday with all kinds of juicy information, INCLUDING information about how to get a FREE LinkedIn eBook! How, you ask? If you purchased the book from Happy About you will (or already have) receive a link to download the second edition, for free! If you purchased the book through Amazon please go to the blog post from yesterday and follow the instructions, and we’ll get back to you with what to do to get the second edition LinkedIn eBook for free (it’s simple). The cost is free for the eBook if you purchased the first edition, OR 11.95 for the second edition LinkedIn ebook, or 19.95+S&H for the LinkedIn paperback (or whatever Amazon charges).
Tomorrow you have the chance to learn from THE most connected person on LinkedIn.
Ron Bates is the man! He has the largest first degree network on LinkedIn, and anyone who has a ton of connections and wants to grow their network knows who Ron is (the guy to beat :p). Ron is offering a free webinar tomorrow, 12/10 – here’s the link to register, and here are some details (there is no cost):
If you are not able to attend the complimentary events coming up make sure to register anyway!! Even if you’re traveling, in a meeting, or unplanned events cause you to miss the webinar, as a – no-show – you’ll receive a follow-up email with a link to access a recording at your convenience.
Do people really know how good you are??
December 10, 2008 (1pm EST) – How to Communicate Your Executive Value Proposition
Presented by Ron Bates – LinkedIn’s most connected member with over +44,000 direct contacts
Next week, Dec 17th, I will do a webinar for Experts Connection called LinkedIn & Facebook Essentials for Executives: Using Both Platforms as Professional Networking Tools.
I did a LinkedIn for Executives a month or two ago and it went really well – next week we are doing another one, and I’m really excited about this one. Sponsored by Netshare and Career-Resumes (who does LinkedIn makeovers for $200), this is one of the most exciting presentations I’m doing this year – Netshare always puts on awesome events). The cost for the 90 minute webinar is $50 (click here to learn more).
You better be on LinkedIn.
And you better have a LinkedIn strategy.
