How to Get LinkedIn

June 25, 2008

Everyone knows that social media sites are continually growing and offer opportunities that you just can’t find elsewhere. Some, however, seem to be more useful than others are. Facebook offers several third party applications that show your connections with others, people in your networks, and allows you to see the Friends list of your friends. LinkedIn, however, provides you with a much more useful tool that gives you even better access.

LinkedIn provides the same basic services as other social media sites, access to old friends, colleagues, and the opportunity to find others with similar interests. The biggest draw to LinkedIn, however, is the other connections that you can make. LinkedIn provides “degrees of connections, essentially showing your closeness to other people. There are a number of possible applications of this tool, but your biggest opportunities are in forging new business contacts.

LinkedIn publicize the ability it provides for you to build relationships with people on the inside of a business. When you are looking for a new job, finding someone that you know or someone that is closely related to you through a good friend is a useful contact.

One of the many important aspects of getting a job is knowing someone on the other end. The same goes for building business relationships. Knowing people directly is obviously the best way to cultivate a relationship with another business. The next best thing, of course, is knowing someone that knows someone else. While this is not a fool proof method of getting in with another business, the more assets that you can tap in building your business, the more results you are likely to get. Think of it this way, whenever you hear a story or a rumor, you are more likely to trust what you hear if it is closer to you. Something that your friend’s daughter’s boyfriend’s mother said is not likely to hold much water from you. Getting it straight from your friend, however, is definitely something worth hearing.

Business relationships and partnerships work the same way as many friendships do. While some may claim that this is a crude comparison, we make friends because of something we have in common, whether it is an interest, an experience, or a hobby. Business relationship can be cultivated the same way and it is always better to have a closer connection with someone before making a proposition that it is to go in cold.
