Are you using LinkedIn to promote your business? Even if you have reservations about social media, you really can’t afford to ignore LinkedIn. With over 660 million users in more than 200 countries, the world’s largest professional networking platform is a powerful and cost-effective tool that can help you grow your business.
If the current crisis has seen your business experience a downturn, it’s more crucial than ever that you explore new marketing strategies. With face to face networking on hold for the time being, LinkedIn makes it possible for you to continue developing relationships and building sales – while still respecting social distancing guidelines.
Like many people, you might have initially set up a LinkedIn profile – even built up connections, before concluding you don’t have the time or skills required to make the most of it. Or maybe you don’t have a profile at all, never really having been convinced that LinkedIn can benefit your business.
Whether your LinkedIn presence is dormant or non-existent, if you’ve not yet made it part of your sales and marketing strategy, you’re missing out on new business opportunities.
But don’t worry, it’s not too late to catch up. Take just half a day out of your schedule and attend our July workshop to hear social media expert Mary Thomas of Concise Training tell you everything you need to know about getting started and getting results with LinkedIn.
Who Is It For?
Our workshop is for anyone in a small to medium size business who has the responsibility for finding new clients. You could be the business owner, or you might work in marketing, sales or business development. If you’re tasked with bringing in new clients and growing the business, but you’re either not using LinkedIn at all, or not using it to its full potential, this workshop is for you.
LinkedIn can help generate sales for any business, but if you’re operating in the B2B sector, it can be especially effective.
What Will You Learn?
In this workshop, Mary will cover the basics of getting started with LinkedIn. Areas she’ll address will include:
- The difference between personal & business profiles
- How to create an optimised LinkedIn profile
- How to increase the volume & quality of your connections
- How to create content that will build your brand, attract prospects & establish you as an authority in your sector
- How to develop productive relationships with connections
- How to exploit the full database of LinkedIn
- How to use LinkedIn to find your next client!
This will be an interactive workshop. Make sure you bring your laptop along as you’ll have the opportunity to work on your profile and leave with an enhanced LinkedIn presence.
Like all our workshops, How to Use LinkedIn to Generate Sales will be fun and friendly. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, and you’ll have the opportunity to network with other local business owners.
About Mary Thomas
Mary set up Concise Training in 2008, initially providing Microsoft Office training to organisations. An early adopter of social media, Mary used it to successfully promote her business – and quickly found herself being asked to provide help, advice and training in this emerging area. Mary adjusted her business model in response to demand, and today, Concise Training delivers social media training courses and digital marketing qualifications – as well as Microsoft Office training.
Mary established the first accredited social media qualification – the ITQ in Social Media; worked with City & Guilds on a new social media diploma and helped The Digital Youth Academy to create the learning materials for the Social Digital Apprenticeship. She is passionate about what she does and ensures that each person she works with walks away with new and useful skills that will aid them in their day-to-day working life.
