LinkedIn Learning has officially opened its virtual doors a year and a half after LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda.com. With more than 9,000 courses and 25 new courses added every week, LinkedIn Learning is aiming to be the preferred eLearning portal to close the global economy’s skills gap.
Building relationships on LinkedIn is remembering that LinkedIn is an online networking tool. It is a platform to connect with people who you are doing, have done or want to do business with. It is a supplement to your current business process and another touch point to stay top of mind with the professionals who matter to you the most.
Engaging with insights on LinkedIn, as it relates to your Social Selling Index score, will be impacted by your interaction with content and activity via (1) shares, likes, comments and re-shares, the (2) direct messages you send to people along with response rate, and finally (3) the number of Groups you join and your engagement within those Groups.
Your profile is more than just your online resume. It is a full story of who you are and the work you have accomplished in business and in the community throughout your career. Devote the time to build it out. If you are still uncertain on how to get started and want a pro to guide you through the process, I have interviewed, written and launched hundreds professional LinkedIn profiles. I'm here to help you tackle this the right way.
