LinkedIn for business

What does this involve?

LinkedIn is a social networking platform that was built for business users. With 400 million users across 200 countries, it’s social media’s biggest professional network. Even so, you must still consider how best you can use LinkedIn to pursue your business objectives. The DigitalBoost guide to LinkedIn for business explains how. 
 
Importantly, your efforts on the platform should be directed by a LinkedIn strategy for your business. Remember to focus also on the quality rather than the quantity of the business relationships you build here – as anywhere.
