35 minutes a week to improve your professional future using LinkedIn

Trevor Young

I’ve only allowed five minutes a day for LinkedIn and this does not include reading the many and varied valuable articles and updates that pop up daily if you subscribe to them – as you should!
If I only had five minutes a day on LinkedIn, this is what I’d do:

  • Visit the site every day – keeping an eye on those people I’m connected with who are moving jobs or getting promotions, and then (selectively) dropping them a line to congratulate them.
  • Update my feed with news and links to relevant videos and articles you think others in your network might be interested in (you can do this via BufferApp if need be, thus saving tons of time)
  • Share or comment upon other people’s content if I felt it was interesting and relevant for my audience.
  • Always be on the lookout to link in with people who I either already know and have had dealings with, or do so during my day-to-day connecting with people via Twitter or as a result of meeting them at events etc.
