The three comments most often made to me about LinkedIn are: It seems overwhelming – I just don’t know where to start. Its not the right network for me B2B/B2C/Entrepreneurial/Fortune 500 Company.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 07, 2011 Performics , the performance marketing agency owned by Publicis Groupe , today released results from "S-Net (The Impact of Social Media )," a report from ROI Research Inc. sponsored by Performics. According to the survey of 2,997 active social networkers, 59 percent of respondents said it is important to have a LinkedIn account, more than any other social network. Furthermore, of the study respondents with an active LinkedIn account, 50 percent visit the site at least weekly and 20 percent visit the site at least daily. While this new social media study shows the frequency of LinkedIn visits decreasing since the height of the recession in 2010 (67 percent weekly and 22 percent daily visits), the percentage of people who deem LinkedIn the most important social networking site jumped dramatically from 41 percent last year to 59 percent this year.
As you might have heard, LinkedIn is moving in full speed ahead to go public. With added PR surrounding first social network site to file for IPO, the professional social networking site has been steadily picking up new users along the way. Last time I wrote about LinkedIn back in early October 2010, user base was around 80 million. Now there are reports suggesting that user base has climbed to 90 million as of early January 2011. All this growth means good things for both LinkedIn users and those who earn paycheck thinking about how to harness the power of social networking sites.

LinkedIn officially launched on May 5, 2003 with a total of 4,500 members in the first month. Known mostly as a business social network, LinkedIn has been adopted globally with nearly 2 billion people searches in 2010 and over 90 million users in January 2011. To top it off, a forthcoming IPO will raise even more money for expansion.
LinkedIn is a great tool for building relationships for those who know what they are doing.Â Many LinkedIn users think that they should join as many groups as they possibly can to maximize their ability to use the site successfully.Â They end up spreading themselves too thin and don't have time to make lasting connections in any of them. Analyze and Select Groups Based on Opportunities They Provide When you are using LinkedIn, you need to plan your attack.Â Start off by identifying your goals and your target market.Â You may be blocked from accessing the group before you join, so you can't always know which groups are good fits.Â That's fine, because you can always change your mind about a group afterward.

1. Treat your LinkedIn profile like a website: Make sure it is formatted, clean, and free of spelling and grammatical errors. I strongly suggest creating your LinkedIn profile first in a word document – not only so you can “catch” errors, but also so you can get a better idea of what your profile will look like on the LinkedIn website. In some sections of LinkedIn you can also pull in bullets and special characters.
