Generating more business inquires from LinkedIn

by admin on August 8, 2012

Your first degree connections are the only people who can see your email and/or your phone number if you have them listed on your profile – and you definitely should if you want to generate business from LinkedIn.

This means that anyone other than the people with whom you are directly connected will be unable to contact you unless they first send you an invitation to connect. And many folks will refrain from doing this because they don’t know you.

I have gained new business because I have displayed both my email address and phone number elsewhere in my profile. Just refrain from doing this in either your Headline or Summary sections since I’ve heard that LinkedIn frowns upon people who do this.

Please visit my profile at to see how I have done this.

You may consider doing this yourself.
