LinkedIn 101 at Indian Prairie Public Library was a fantastic success! With a capacity set at 15 attendees, this hands-on seminar focused on effectively using LinkedIn for individual use. We had a full house! Individuals learned the benefits and features of LinkedIn. I also shared some resources about using LinkedIn for business, as during this and a previous implementation of this seminar there was interest from small business owners in how they can also effectively use LinkedIn on behalf of their business.
I’m considering creating a related workshop, LinkedIn 201, “Effectively Using LinkedIn for Businesses”. We would cover creating Company Pages, Company Showcase Pages, Followers and Status Updates for Business, and using scheduling software such as Hootsuite. I’m also considering LinkedIn 102, “LinkedIn Groups”. This course would cover participating in LinkedIn Groups in more depth and even discuss starting a Group of your own. Let me know in the comments if this content would be of interest for you.
