Are You Collecting or Connecting LinkedIn Contacts?

09/04/2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Are You Collecting or Connecting LinkedIn Contacts?

Technology is embedded deep into every business — whether or not you want to admit it. If you’re still waiting to embrace and use these tools, then you’ll be chasing those who already are. Now more than ever, you have the ability to target, reach out and nurture relationships across the globe — and LinkedIn, for the foreseeable future, will remain the most powerful business tool for anyone in sales or business development to do so.

Make sure you attend an exciting Freelance Forum meeting on Thursday evening, Sept. 4, when Jim Hogan will help us master his Six Step Monday Morning LinkedIn PowerMove. This weekly “to do,” which should take you less than an hour each week, will help you focus your efforts on connecting with the right people using LinkedIn.

You will learn:

  • Advanced LinkedIn search techniques that even the novice can master
  • How to leverage OPC (other people’s content) to build awareness and trust
  • How to integrate a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system with LinkedIn to keep you on track

And there’s so much more. If you want to grow your business, this is a DON’T MISS EVENT!

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
