If you want to hang with the big players—a place where connections are made, leads are generated, and deals go down—then you need to spend more of your time on LinkedIn.” Written by Lewis Howes
 

Many clients have asked for my help lately with social media. Each having significantly more questions than answers which is to be expected.  However, it wasn’t until I read this article that I realized just how overlooked LinkedIn is with most if not all of my clients and prospects.  Everyone wants to talk about Twitter and FaceBook but should we be spending more time with LinkedIn?

I have always had a theory that when people come to work in very casual clothing, that they are not as focused on their job.  It kind of feels like working on a Saturday morning…  I know for myself, when I dress in my best I have a different mind set.  Much more intensely focused and determine.  Does that same psychological affect apply when I am networking in LinkedIn vs. FaceBook?  Do I have my business hat on when I am in LinkedIn vs. my social hat in FaceBook?

I’d be very interested to gather opinions on this.  Quite frankly, I’m not sure what my stance is on this yet but I can tell you that I plan on elevating my activity level in LinkedIn.  Thoughts?
