I think the answer to this is, Yes! But, as with all networking, you'll likely see better results if you make it a two-way street. And, this site makes it easy to do that.
As you focus on your professional and business development, you may consider Linkedin one good resource to explore, with tools and functionality, for relationship building. Here are 5 main reasons why I think Linkedin can help your development efforts:
January has been an exciting month, with Gabriella Goddard, a UK-based Executive Coach who is part of the Time2Market team of experts, launching Gulp! in the US and visiting New York. I'm receiving my signed copy this week! I've known Gabriella for about ten years now and loved the UK version, which was fun and inspiring. I also learned some very funny expressions that stick with me today. One of those was "nut it on the head", which I'll write about later. But for now, if you need to nut your book marketing on the head (if I can actually use the expression that way), here are a few tools to help make your mark:
Gulp! is a great example of marketing innovation in the publishing world, with these on-line tools in action. Check out www.gulptoday.com, and give up living passively. Your marketing campaign can take on a whole new look, integrating these digital tools.
Well, it is here! The Power Up Brand You Program from Gabriella Goddard, an Executive Coach based in the UK, and part of the Time2Market team of experts. It’s one way to drive your personal, professional and business development results – fast.
Then, Power Up Brand You to build your visible impact and drive business, professional and personal development results you want.
You can be the smartest and most productive person in your profession or company and still be overlooked for key business sales opportunities, projects, promotions and pay raises. To get where you want to go faster, you need TALENT + VISIBLE IMPACT. Powering up Brand YOU, is one way to increase your visible impact.
Creating and developing your personal brand is not that much different from the branding process to effectively market and sell products and services. And, as you know, the products and services that are marketed most effectively, make the most money. But, you need to be visible and establish unique positioning to drive sales, bring new opportunities, and set yourself apart from the competition. So, if you want to work on leadership positioning and rise to the top, you have to make your talents highly visible to your colleagues, managers, customers and those in your business network.
The way to make yourself more visible is to power up your personal BRAND.
Building your personal brand is fundamental to success in the workplace today. This is true whether you work for a company or work for yourself as an entrepreneur. And that’s what this program is all about. Get started today! You can listen to Gabriella's insights, learn more from her BBC interview, and start the Power Up Brand You program here to move forward fast.
Effective networking continues to come up as a question area among business managers and entrepreneurs that I meet. Here are a few networking book recommendations. These are used by top companies' sales teams, as well as entrepreneurial CEO's...
While you plan and grow your business via build, buy and/or partnering strategies, it is useful to review these five areas and to monitor them frequently. You will more readily identify business weaknesses in areas such as finance, marketing and sales, and operations and be able to strengthen your business development and growth along the way. Study what did and did not work for your business and others, then develop steps you can take that will see you through to your goals.
TMT Investors, Entrepreneurs and Business Management – Where will you play?
Tremendous transformation is how I would describe the wireless services market in the past 15+ years. My work in the early to mid-90’s, for AirTouch Communications (now part of Vodafone and Verizon Wireless), included compiling the first comprehensive world market studies for the emerging company to pursue its international expansion vision. In less then a decade, that company became a dominant world player, offering leading wireless products and services worldwide, as it successfully navigated significant change in the technology, regulatory, consumer, and competitive landscapes.
Every year we watch this and witness the ongoing evolution of the industry.
