I see so many people suggesting that you should connect to anyone as they 'might be useful one day' or they will see your message but little written comparing the two approaches of connect a lot or connect to good people - so here's a blog that does just that.

I bet you all thought recruitment was a top 3 industry on LinkedIn right?

Nope, not anywhere in the UK.

Surprised it's number 25? I'm not to be honest, they shout a lot and make a lot of noise but over 80% of LinkedIn's users are there for other reasons.

Enjoy the blog and if you need any help shout.

LinkedIn has outlined an upcoming update to it's terms and conditions. A few surprises in there but on a total view mostly good. Be interesting to see the real version when it comes out.

One of the most frequent questions I'm asked is what's my profile like when I talk to people and it took me ages to think of a way to encapsulate it neatly. There is always the profile test on www.thelinkedinman.com under resources but here's a little blog post about it too.

has has a lot of people resonate to this blog where people seem less keen to actually talk to someone as opposed to put some distance between them with a message, email or text. Have you noticed that trend too?

If I had a pound for every time someone told me LinkedIn was about jobs and only recruiters used it then I'd be retired but it's not. Yes it is how they make their income but most users aren't job seekers or recruiters. This infographic tells you all about the 20 million and the top 3 industries. Those same people are often dumbfounded when I share examples of clients making millions each year using free LinkedIn accounts and more. Shout if I can help any more.

I see so many people just waiting for something (anything?) to happen on LinkedIn just because they are there, present, still and doing ... .nothing. Imagine going to a huge networking event, convention or conference and standing there not doing anything .. you wouldn't would you as it would never work. LinkedIn is just the same, try doing something, a status message is a great place to start to here's how to do it. If you enjoy this then check out the other blog posts or sign up if you like :)
