After a couple years of exchanging emails, I finally got to meet Chip Lambert face to face. Chip is one of the leading experts on how to effectively use LinkedIn, the business to business social networking site.
There's a lot of buzz about using Facebook and Twitter for social networking and building relationships to grow your business. But don't neglect LinkedIn. It's one of the earliest business networking sites and enables you to develop connections with potential referral partners, joint venture partners as well as clients.
Chip Lambert gave a terrific presentation at Increase Sales with Social Media. Here are some user stats he shared about LinkedIn: 30 million professionals,
1.3 million new members/month
750,000 senior execs, average household income is $109K.
If you're on Twitter, follow Chip Lambert. If you're on LinkedIn, make sure you connect with Chip there as well. If we're not connected on LinkedIn yet, then let's connect!
