The Insurance Brokers Guide to LinkedIn uses Action Steps to show you how to grow your business using LinkedIn. As an insurance broker I’ve used these strategies to generate from 3 to 5 calls per week from prospects.
Why do only 25% of LinkedIn members use the site on a regular basis? Because most don’t know what to do after signing up. If you haven’t figured out how to use LinkedIn these resources will help.
Back in the old days, pre group discussions or a searchable group directory (less than a year ago), there wasn’t much value in groups. Sure they helped you see other members outside of your network.
