In this episode of the Lean Out Your Business Podcast, we are going to talk about sales, marketing, and messaging on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a curated content engine plus social networking site, where you can highlight your background by optimizing your profile, grow and leverage your network by connecting to people, and engage with the gifts of content that you're being offered. It enables you to network with people and professional organizations in your industry which is a great way to stay up to date with the latest developments and to share information and ideas with others in your field. We have to take into account, that the larger our network is, the more business opportunities will come our way, meaning the more potential leads and sales.
