Contact is now easier than ever. You can get in touch, reach out and interact with others through so many different channels, but to truly connect with someone is difficult. Breaking the ice, sparking curiosity, earning the right to collaborate are the first steps to starting a value-based relationship with other trailblazing, world – changing individuals that can drive you and your business forward.
LinkedIn has been my go-to business minded social channel, and you may already be using it. If not, I suggest you should. Here I share creative insights, artistic projects and world class business strategies for forward thinking entrepreneurs and artistic spirits alike. Through my connections there, I’ve grown my network, my business and my opportunities right around the world.
Although my connections flow naturally and consistently on this social channel, I go a little deeper. For my part, I’ve also been usingLinkedIn Sales Navigatoras a tool to connect with more like minded entrepreneurs and trailblazers in both business and creative circles, both locally and internationally. By exploring for and following other potential connections who’s personal and business philosophies align with my own, I’ve begun to grow a deeper network or co-creators, seeding the potential for stronger long term business relationships. In the end, I suggest that's what matters – how you connect, who you're connected to, and what you (we) are all able to bring to life, in the best interests of all.
Still don't consider yourself very good at Linkedin? Then I highly suggest "Linkedinfluence." Linkedinfluence is a great online course that walks you through all kinds of fantastic profile building strategies, content and relationship building techniques that help you thrive on Linkedin.
