It used to be the case that LinkedIn was just a place to put a copy of your CV online and wait for recruitment agencies to approach you. Whilst that does still happen, today LinkedIn is a platform that offers an online place to network, raise your professional profile and find sales leads.

In this LinkedIn Master Class Session, Paul Ince from Like Mind Media will show you:

  • How to update your profile to show you at your best and attract connections
  • How to gain endorsements and recommendations from your connections
  • The best type of content to post to get maximum positive reactions
  • Why long-form content and video is worth the effort on LinkedIn
  • How to search for new sales leads
  • Whether company pages are worth setting up and how to make the best use of them within your business
  • Additional features that are often underused but can deliver great results

Who should attend?

These seminars are open to small and medium-sized businesses based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire
