the point that I found myself momentarily leaving the manuscript to visit
LinkedIn and try out a few new tips and locate new people to connect with.
Let's be clear that this is not a book for novice LinkedIn users. There are not screen shots and basic tutorials for newbies. The authors assume you get the basics of LinkedIn, but novice users can certainly extrapolate valuable networking skills from the book that will invariably work for anyone looking to become a better networker.
That's one thing I really appreciated about the book - it's ability to give you important networking tactics, how those tactics apply to LinkedIn, and then wash it down with a real life example from uber successful LinkedIn users. LinkedWorking does all of this without all the fluff and hype you're going to get from a lot of books on networking and connecting. It strips it down to the core of what is important, and included great suggestions such as ways to approach e-mailing busy people, and intelligent strategies to benchmark your success on LinkedIn.
If you really want to up the ante on your networking efforts and want to realize the power of LinkedIn as a tool to help you bolster these efforts, LinkedInWorking is a great place to start.
I have ordered the book right away and was eager to learn the rest of the secrets from his book. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to bring their professional networking to a next level. LinkedWorking is full of real life examples of people who start with nothing and ended up with multimillion dollar businesses. And these real examples prove that Rome was not built in one day. People who achieved success using LinkedIn worked very hard to be where they are at. Anyone can get there step by step. Consistency is the key. I will implement every single advice that was given in this book.
PS: I had a privilege to meet Lewis Howes in person. He is super nice and down to earth guy. Lewis is a huge fan of Thai Cuisine.
What I like most about it is:
- practical advice on how to build an effective network
- a specific plan designed to grow productive connections
- interviews with professionals who use LinkedIn to help them succeed
LinkedWorking is about creating value by building meaningful relationships and enriching experiences that go far beyond the web. LinkedIn is just the beginning.
Monday was so mental that it has slipped into Tuesday, so sorry about that readers. Today I am reviewing LinkedWorking: Generating Success on LinkedIn the Worlds Largest Professional Networking Website by Frank Agin and Lewis Howes.
This book is all about using LinkedIn effectively to produce results. Each chapter covers a different aspect of LinkedIn, it relates it to networking in real life and then gives an example of someone on LinkedIn who has had success with it. Below are some of my favourite bits from the book (these are all direct quotes):
* When you send an invitation you should always try to make it personal, or at least add some value to the message.... A personal touch always increased your chances of being accepted
* You never know which connections will come in handy in the future. This is why it is important to never pass judgement while on LinkedIn
* Everyone is a networking opportunity for you (and you are an opportunity for everyone). This is a powerful networking concept. As powerful as it is, however, there are limitations to it. The primary limitation is that you have no control over where this networking strategy leads. That is, you can never tell when you will come across a networking opportunity and when you do, you have little control as to what might be. You eliminate much of this limitation when you take it upon yourself to reconnect with people.
* This is the Golden Rule of Networking: Give first ... get second.
* Eventually what you inject into your network - opportunities, information, support, energy and additional contacts - comes back to you.Read more ›
