    Rule of thumb: Never say anything on LinkedIn you wouldn’t be comfortable saying at a networking group or tradeshow, and remember their are NO exhibitors allowed on LinkedIn! Lots of times innocent rookies automatically revert to just over-selling their services. I see it all the time.

    LinkedIn has led to some of my biggest deals. I don’t ever do anything to say why my business is great. By simply actively participating and sharing good insights and findings, the right connections just happen.

    Thank you for not only the excellent and well-rounded post on LinkedIn, but also for utilizing my blog to describe what a LION is. Just as the previous commenter mentioned, I have found lots of business on LinkedIn by engaging. There is a scientific side to getting found, but there is also a side that requires the same time and energy that you would use at a networking opportunity. Work LinkedIn like a virtual chamber of commerce meeting by providing value and sharing, and you will find business through engagement.
