LinkedIn is more interactive than you probably think, but you have to make the effort. If you haven’t joined a discussion yet, get on the website and do it now. There is a wealth of information from other members’ postings and it needs only fifteen or twenty minutes a day.
I hear you groan you know. Another fifteen minutes of things to do when your day is already jam-packed? Trust me on this one. It will be worth it. You don’t even have to do it between 9 and 5. Sneak it in just after dinner if you can. I know, too, that you ae checking your messages, whether on your phone, email or both. If you are doing that, you are still squeezing a bit more of your workday into that 24 hours.
The more discussions you join, the higher your LinkedIn profile. Just don’t do it recklessly. Don’t make a quick comment just to put a few words in. Actually read the whole article; watch the whole video; follow the discussion thread that is already in place.
It is easy to be more in touch on LinkedIn.
