Social Media Masterclass…

Frank Furness and I are on Tour throughout the UK

If you only attend one workshop this year then this should be it.  I am working with Frank Furness and he is going to explain to delegates how he got 2.2 million people to his YouTube account.

As if that is not enough reason to attend!  Then, I am going to show delegates how to create an abundance of leads from LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

I am also going to show you how one of my clients made £135,000 in her first three months on LinkedIn.

So if you want more info click here and watch Frank’s video.

LinkedIn Marketing

Let’s face it times are uncertain.  But what are you going to do?  You could cut back.  Cut back on your costs, marketing, training, sales effort.  In other words you could cut back on your business and your profit.

Or you could do what only the top few will do.  You could push forward.  You could become better at selling and marketing your products and services.  And as a result, you could grow your business because others are cutting back.

Clean up your profile – new button!

Have you seen the new improve your profile button on LinkedIn?  It is on your profile page and in yellow, so you can’t miss it and it is worth doing!

LinkedIn Profiles

LinkedIn Profiles turn up high on search engine results.  The more links that you have on your profile, the more search engines will like your profile and the higher you will get rated.

LinkedIn also allows you two very important links.  They are – a link to your website and a link to your blog.  I use these to promote my website on LinkedIn.
