How often do you ignore clients? Maybe they're quite small or perhaps they've gone through a dry patch. You might be missing a trick. And it's not that complicated to avoid. http://bit.ly/1Oukg4M

If you want to be perceived as an expert in your field, you'd better showcase your expertise. Details matter. A good online profile isn't enough to position you as a expert - but it is a starting point. And that means you need a good profile photo.

8 Reasons I didn’t accept your #LinkedIn invitation http://linkd.in/16KICX2
Would you walk up to a group of people at an industry function, press a business card into each person’s hand and walk off? No? I didn't think so. Yet somehow people do the equivalent online. I’m not suggesting you don’t invite strangers to connect. Quite the contrary; but there's no point unless it makes sense from a business perspective: Is there a reason to connect? Can I be of use to you? Might you be able to help me? Are we likely to ...

Most businesses and most brands can't honestly claim that their offering is unique. But that's true of some of the most established brands in the world. Take the Leaning Tower of Pisa for example - it's not unique! But it certainly has unique positioning. http://linkd.in/1KhYyCr

Creating great content may be the biggest challenge in content marketing, and it's not always easy to stick to your plan.
I preach consistency in marketing, but sometimes it's a case of do what I say, not do what I do!

Content marketing isn't about quantity, it's quality that matters. If your content doesn't position you (or your business) as an expert in your field, it's just a waste of resource - and visitors to your website won't bother coming back.
Your website needs to give your visitors something of value, or they won't bother coming back. Quality content will keep your site relevant and well-ranked.

Company profiles are in demand, and we're doing quite a few of them right now. And instead of me, me, me, there's a better way to appeal to your market.
It is vital to remember that it is more important to show your target market that you have the answers to their problems, than to tell them about your company.

Update - there are now 4.22 South Africans on LinkedIn - 19% growth in 10 months
It’s all very well LinkedIn boasting membership of 300 million, but the real question for South Africans is what this means to us. The global stats are impressive but it’s the local picture that should guide you in deciding whether it presents a marketing opportunity for your business.More than 1 Million Active South Africans3.54 million people in South Africa have LinkedIn profiles. Of course, this doesn’t tell you the entire story; we all know ...
