Social Media is hands down one of the most powerful tools you have at your disposal in business. LinkedIn is no longer just an online CV, it can now be leveraged to highlight you and your personal brand, allowing you to drive sales within your business, and referrals for your fellow BNI members.
This highly interactive workshop will take you through what it takes to get the most out of LinkedIn and Facebook as a BNI member:
- How to optimise your profile to start making the connections you want.
- The power of recommendations and how to use them.
- Using groups to expand your network and build your credibility.
- How to research your ideal referral online so you can ask for them by name.
- How to use LinkedIn during an action-oriented One-to-One to increase referrals and closed business for yourself and fellow members.
- How to increase visitors to your chapter with proven techniques on Social Media
- How to connect the dots to generate profitable referrals on Social Media
- The value of Personal and business profiles.
And most importantly - how to take it from connection to coffee to business!
NB: you must bring a fully powered laptop or iPad to this workshop. No power will be available. WiFi is available but we advise you to bring your own connectivity as speeds will be low and may reduce your ability to fully experience this workshop.
