LinkedIn installed a new program called LinkedIn ProFinder. ProFinder is the future marketplace where members who are LinkedIn can find other members to inquire about their products and services. The categories arrange from Architecture to Financial Services to Real Estate. It is currently 100% FREE to sign up for this service and you will have people on LinkedIn that ask for a bid from you for their business. www.linkedin.com/profinder.

5. Check Out Notifications On LinkedIn Every Day

Within the new LinkedIn user interface, it much easier to view interactions and respond. The Notifications section a lets you view work anniversaries, people in your network who published an article or have been mentioned in the news, birthdays, and promotions. You’ll also see people who have followed you, engaged with your articles and other content, and endorsed you. This gives you a fresh, easy way to click a button and respond to others to get an appointment.

6. Use The Auto Text Expander To Save Time

If you are thinking that you or your assistant doesn’t have the time to write or cut and paste lots of introductions, then you should consider installing the FREE auto text expander. Found in the Google Chrome store (Google Up Auto Text Expander), this is a Chrome hack you can use in LinkedIn to basically assign a short text code for a long paragraph or message. For example, instead of typing out a long birthday note for each person, you could simply assign the code bday in the text expander and each time you put that code in it will fill in your entire birthday message.
