Happy Monday to you all everyone. Hope you all had aLinkedIn members great weekend. So I open my e-mail this morning. And what do I see it is an e-mail from LinkedIn. This is what it said.


Recently, LinkedIn reached a new milestone: 200 million members. But this isn't just our achievement to celebrate — it's also yours.

I want to personally thank you for being part of our community. Your journey is part of our journey, and we're delighted and humbled when we hear stories of how our members are using LinkedIn to connect, learn, and find opportunity.

All of us come to work each day focused on our shared mission of connecting the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful. We're excited to show you what's next.

With sincere thanks,

Deep Nishar

Now to be honest with you,I was happy to see this. Not until I found out on Facebook that many people got the same e-mail also. Some people were in the 1% and 5% most connnect LinkedIn members Worldwide. Now I know that my Active Rain blogs get syndicated to Twitter. Heck I even picked up a potential client who I am still working with. But I have never really generated any real estate leads with my LinkedIn Profile.


So I ask you all. Did you get this? Do you think this is a hoax? Hype? And do you use LinkedIn in your real estate business? How is it working for you? Please let me know what you think. Its still Week 6 of this young year. GET READY. GET READY. GET READY. I feel a feeling that more home buyers are about to hit the Real Estate Market pretty soon.

Congratulations, Lanre!   It's something you can be proud of, and something to post on your Resumé.

I got the same message from LinkedIn and so did many others I know.

Lanre...I got the same message.  Like you, I have not received a quantifiable lead from LinkedIn.  Granted I only syndicate my WP blog to there and occasionally participate in a couple of groups, so it may be more of my lackadaisical approach than anything else.

Lanre, kudos to you for being in top percentage on LinkedIn. Who really care which number it is? 1%, 5% or 10%? The important point is that you are there. Keep going and as Joan indicated it might be helpful to be more involved so you rise higher up the scale. Keep going.

So far I have not  had a transaction as a result of being on linkedin, but you know what they say "you've  got to be in it to win it " so  I do share my wordpress blogs with my linkedin associates.  In this industry you never know where your leads are going to come from.

I didn't get this message?  Hmmm.....maybe Linked in thinks I am some sort of loser?  I participate in an American History group there on a semi-regular basis.  Wonder why they don't like me?
