When: October 23rd, 6:30 PM
Where: CSU Chico, Langdon Hall Room 300
A 90-minute workshop with small business trainer, Nate Wright, will help you unearth fruitful (and profitable) connections within your community and business eco-system. You’ll leave the workshop with the tools you need to establish a connection, provide value, and answer the all important questions: “Who are you?” and “Why the f*@#! should I care?”
Some topics we’ll cover:
Pimping out your LinkedIn Profile (even if you are brand-spanking new to business)
Building authority - Who do you want to help? How will you provide them with value?
Tracking down leads on LinkedIn - Who can help you? How do you find them?
Techniques for capturing a prospects email address (some geeky, some old-fashioned)
Content vs. Context or Why the f*@#! should I care? and Why should I care today?
Getting the meeting & follow-up best practices
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required, just show up!
I've gone to the Support section of LinkedIn looking for a way to separate my Contacts in to Categories (Recuitment, Architecture, BIM Etc.) but no luck. If you were to do this, how would you go about it ? And, how do I remove a contact ?
LinkedIn is more of a contact builder / connector, not a contact manager. And frankly, due to the ever-changing nature of that (and most) social media platforms, I'd recommend, keeping a high value contacts list (no more than a few hundred) in Excel, Google Docs, or a software based solution for continuity.
