Here are 3 ways LinkedIn can generate new business for you

1) Above all, earn the ask.  The more value you provide in the relationship, the more “right” you have to phone time, a free consultation, or the opportunity to make your pitch.  2) Build a sales funnel.  Organize your contacts and planned interactions for best results.  Recognize and engage with inbound warm leads.  And remember, timing is everything!  3) Target and engage your ideal prospects.  LinkedIn’s search engine gives you direct access to over 450 million professionals in more than 200 countries.  In minutes, you can build a hyper-targeted prospect list by job title, industry type and/or location. With just these few tactics, LinkedIn can become a powerful business-building ally.
