to Get You & Your Message Global 24/7"
It is a well given fact that
people do business with someone they know and/or trust; that like minds
gravitate to each other; a person will do business with someone who is
recommended by someone they trust; is more likely to do business with someone
they have an association with through business or social organizations; now more
than ever we need to work smarter rather than harder. LinkedIn provides the
ultimate marketing and networking vehicle to find someone who knows someone you
need to know. It provides a 24/7 on-line marketing piece. Through use of this
powerful tool you expand your networking possibilities beyond time or distance
constraints and get more facts in front of a prospect than possible in a short
in-person chat without beingboastful. In short, LinkedIn: Provides more
information than possible in a 5-10 minute in-person meeting; Access to your
information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; Increases credibility by showing your
contacts, credentials, interests, business activities, expertise in your field;

prospective employees; Increases your “cold call” into a “warm call” through
introductions; Allows set up of on-line discussion groups for projects; Provides
applications for discussions and whiteboard capabilities; Gives infinitely more
