- (1888PressRelease) July 28, 2010 - Clarkston, GA - What you don't know about LinkedIn could be hurting your business.
LinkedIn is the world's most popular online platform for professionals, and yet merely 1 percent of users are taking advantage of all the site has to offer.
That's why Atlanta-based marketing firm MLT Creative, one of BtoB Magazine's Top 100 B2B Agencies two years in a row) is hosting "LinkedIn: Basic Best Practices for B2B Marketers," an open webinar featuring LinkedIn expert Viveka von Rosen, founder of Linked Into Business.
With this webinar, which will be held Wednesday, July 28 from 2-3 p.m., von Rosen aims to make a lot more LinkedIn users part of that 1 percent.
"Despite LinkedIn's enormous popularity," said Billy Mitchell, MLT Creative president and creative director, "only a small percentage of professionals are using this vital social media tool to its full potential. We at MLT had a lot to learn ourselves. So we brought in an expert."
Mitchell held an interactive webinar for his own employees, who learned a lot from von Rosen's advice.
"Viveka used an entertaining, informative webinar, as well as subsequent personalized videos, to show each of us, individually, where and how our LinkedIn profiles needed improvements," Mitchell said. "Her guidance has been invaluable, and we're excited to share that knowledge with others."
Webinar attendees will learn to:
* Represent their personal brand and their company
* Optimize their profile to get found
* Increase their search rankings within LinkedIn
* Grow their network strategically
* Set weekly goals to build authority
Additionally, attendees will receive an eBook, a written reference guide for all best practices covered in the webinar, with added tips and checklists from LinkedIn expert, Viveka von Rosen.
B2B marketers use LinkedIn more than any other form of social media, and for good reason, according to Forrester Research. With more than 70 million users and one million company profiles, LinkedIn is focused purely on business discussion and professional networking. The demographics of the average LinkedIn user fit the background of the key decision-makers in B2B environments.
