LinkedIn’s professional member base currently exceeds a half billion people. It’s a virtual goldmine of opportunity.
Using this platform to generate new freelance client leads can be a pretty straightforward process — if you’re willing to invest a little time in learning the best practices.
Savvy freelancers know it’s not enough to create a LinkedIn profile. You must engage, stay visible and build relationships to succeed on LinkedIn.
But are you taking steps every day to forge new professional relationships? Are you identifying new prospects and finding relevant ways to reach them? Are you positioning yourself as an authority so leads are coming to you? Are you laying the groundwork to foster referrals?
If you answered “No” to any of these questions, I can help…
To attract today’s buyer, you must shift the dialogue from “What can I sell you?” to “How can I help you?”
Truth is, your personal brand is more important than it’s ever been. Prospective clients are taking a closer look at your experience and credentials before they even contact you. And since a Google search on your name will almost always show your LinkedIn profile before your own website, your social selling hinges on how your LinkedIn profile represents your personal brand.
Fortunately, there are five crucial steps that will turn LinkedIn into a highly predictable lead generator for you. I call it The LINK Method™.
