I'm looking for a job. I see a bunch of recruiters check my page on LinkedIn, but I very infrequently hear back from them. What do y'all think I could be doing wrong?

Hi Ted! I just had a quick look at your LinkedIn profile and one thing that stands out to me is that it does not articulate what your dream job actually is. You say what you're doing and what you're passionate about but not exactly what you would like to do. If you would like to chat about this and how I may be able to help you, we could Skype...? Best wishes, Louise.

Yep, I have someone from LinkedIn Premium Services calling me on Friday.. I know she is going to try to sell me on Premium Services.  I am in return going to try to sell her Mitel Phones & related services.. LOL

Saw this picture in another post and I felt it was a good time to remind everyone that the number one way business owner's get their Web sites hacked is by poor password security. Anyone out there want to share a bad news story related to their business or a business owner they know who got their Website hacked? 
Also, here's a blog post I wrote back in September (Link below if you want to read about 5 different ways to keep your business  Website from being hacked)

Hi All, Just joined and thought I'd ask a quick question. I inquired about LinkedIns new Social Selling Index (SSI) the other day, and when they rang back I quickly got the feeling it was a sales ploy. They said by signing up for a Corporate Account they could offer SSI services over and above what even Premium members have access too, in terms of networking and generating leads.

Has anyone signed up for a Corporate Account and if so, think it's a worth while investment?

LinkedIn will always try and upsell the next package to you.  In terms of SSI, you may as well use Klout or other social media tracker.
For me, and if you're in sales, it makes sense to buy one of the sales packages - but stay away from any team type packages.
What you'll find in LinkedIn is they have separate sales teams who know nothing about what other teams are up to and who often compete for your business

Can anyone do me a favour? I've never really focused enough on linkedin. I'm trying to get a handle on what's working in terms of linked in search.

If anyone can try the following for me and report back it would be really appreciated:

1. Type 'Adsense' into linked in search (but don't press enter)
- Does my profile appear? (Mat Bennett) as a suggestion?
- Does my firm, +OKO Digital appear as a suggestion?

2. Press enter
- Does my profile appear? (Mat Bennett)?

3. Change the filter on the left to 'companies'
- Does OKO appear?

I'm guessing that there will be a lot of 'no' answers to those I'm not connected to, but I'm interested.

Feel free to connect if you are there, and thanks !

Hi Mat! I've got good and bad news. When I type "Adsense," OKO Digital appears but you don't. When I press Enter, the company appears (under the "Companies" section of the results), but your profile does not. When you filter the search for companies only, OKO Digital appears 2nd on the list. I hope that helps.

Could an app called 'Slack' change how we communicate in a business?

#LinkedIn just isn’t that complicated.

Oh, sure, its evolved from an online resume to a content platform and there’s all the new updates out every year, but really, when it comes down to it, there are only a handful of things that actually matter, a handful of things you really need to know.

Could we be nearing the end of "death by PowerPoint?" (Could meetings evolve to a point where it's more of a two-way dialogue, thus?)

This is an interesting viewpoint. We spend a lot of time and energy avoiding failure, but it seems that embracing it can be a strength.

Based on what you've seen, how do people tend to get promoted? Is it because of talent/ability, personality, or ability to play politics? (Obviously it's a mix of all three and more to some extent, but any insights are helpful.)
