Are You Recommended at LinkedIn?

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with San Diego Previews Real Estate CA BRE# 01101958

 Enough has surely been written in this forum about LinkedIn and the importance of being listed there. I won't dwell on the importance of being there, but if you're not, GO DO IT RIGHT NOW!

If you use the system actively, it can be a great way to reconnect with clients, colleagues and frieneds. When I first joined, I went through a personal database and send out invitations. The results were fun and  even received a few thank you calls.

LinkedIn provides a great additional way to stay in touch with your connections and you'll be adored if you take the time to write kind recommendations for them. For example, Brian Brady, a great mortgage professional, and I recently exchanged recommendations and I am more likely than ever to recommend him for mortgage loans.

(this is a test to see if Brian really reads my posts or not;-)

My recommendation? Go to your LinkedIn account and start recommending and writing nice things about your connections.

Then watch and see what happens!

Great point Roberta,

It's nice to connect with people on LinkedIn, but it's awesome to get a recommendation.  I like your idea about giving recommendations to people in your network without asking in advance for one in return.

Thanks for the reminder Roberta.  I signed up for it a while ago, but haven't done much with it.  I haven't recommended anyone and they haven't recommended me!

Roberta, I've been with LinkedIn for about a year, but haven't done much with it.  What does it really provide to you?  Thanks.
