How beneficial is LinkedIn?

My experience with LinkedIn has been a waste of time. Is there another way to apply for quality jobs?


Yesterday was my birthday (17th June) and I got more than 200+ birthday wishes.

Why I'm telling this because if you use LinkedIn properly it can be your biggest lead magnet + money making machine. I have worked with LinkedIn Learning and completed their Certification course..

You can definitely find amazing jobs on LinkedIn through your personal network alone

Hope this helps

I guess it depends on what you're trying to do on LinkedIn.

I meet people there with whom I do business. People follow me there because they have an interest in buying, selling and managing businesses and I publish a new article every week.

I sometimes prospect for opportunities. I'll be in Tanzania next September and I was able to find a few people in my network from Tanzania and South Africa. I'm hoping to schedule some seminars while I'm in that part of the world.

Back when I was working for a bank, I would load up my profile with information to make me more credible. I found that sometimes when I left messages for prospects, they'd look me up on LinkedIn to check me out before returning my call.

It's a great tool and I've made money with LinkedIn.

What I don't recommend though is making a bunch of connections and then spamming people once they become connected to you.

I mean, who on Earth would like that?

Arrange a call if you'd like to talk about your goals and maybe some of my experience on LinkedIn could help you out.
