Occasionally, someone will ask me if they should use one of the automation services that help automatically find connections, send invitations, then engage in initial conversations on LinkedIn.

Nancy Myrland All Posts, LinkedIn, Social Media Leave a Comment

LinkedIn is on a bit of a roll. Last week, LinkedIn announced the reintroduction of video to the platform. I say reintroduction because their video effort launched last year was met with less than stellar results. Today, we are seeing the first noticeable result of Microsoft’s 2016 $26.2 billion acquisition of LinkedIn. LinkedIn Rolls Out A New Windows 10 App …

Those of you who know me know I’m bullish on video, and livestreaming, video’s real-time cousin.

LinkedIn just announced what I think is a smart, long overdue messaging and chat feature that will help users communicate faster and more efficiently.

Nancy Myrland All Posts, Business Development/Sales, LinkedIn Leave a Comment

  Most of us have heard of a one-trick pony, right? The dictionary tell us it is: “A person or thing with only one special feature, talent, or area of expertise.” Over the years I have been working in legal marketing, both in-house and not so in-house (that would be now as I consult), I’ve heard lawyers tell stories about …

LinkedIn Profiles Can Be Very Boring

Let’s face it. LinkedIn profiles are extremely important because they are what people see when they check out your qualifications, your experience, the updates you’ve posted, where you went to school, and so much more. The problem is they can be very dry and boring. Remember that you only have a few seconds to catch a visitor’s attention before they …
