The Missing Link: You have a LinkedIn profile. Now what?


If you’re like many of your peers, you know someone who already has a profile on LinkedIn, the social networking site geared toward professionals. You may even have a LinkedIn profile, but are wondering how to use LinkedIn as a rainmaking tool.

The purpose of social professional networking sites, such as LinkedIn, is no different than any other kind of professional networking: It’s to build long lasting relationships.

You’re looking to identify and connect with those people whom it makes sense to build a relationship with, but who may not be within your existing circle of professional contacts. You can expand your network of contacts by pinpointing those people in your existing circle who are also in the network of someone you’d like to get to know further.
