The Entrepreneur’s Six-Step Formula for LinkedIn Success

The Entrepreneur’s Six-Step Formula for LinkedIn Success
By Sue Gresham, The LinkedIn Lady

LinkedIn Success ~ Wisconsin Business Owners Lunch & Learn, Friday, Sep. 29, 2017

– Have you created a strategy for using LinkedIn that actually grows your business?

– Are you engaging with your network the right way?

– Do you know how to maximize your efforts while on LinkedIn?

As an entrepreneur, you know people do business with those they know, like, and trust. It takes time and effort to get noticed and to build relationships and credibility. LinkedIn is the perfect online, professional, networking platform where you can do all of that and more – if you know how to use it effectively.

During our time together, Sue will walk us through her six-step formula for LinkedIn success. The formula begins with establishing your goals and strategy, key elements you need for a branded profile, network building, engagement activities, and ending with the answer to “how do I fit this into my schedule?”

Sue will offer insights and simple how-to tips, as well as discuss professional best practices.

LinkedIn Success is yours for attending!

Whether you are an active LinkedIn user or someone who needs a little push to get going, you’ll benefit from attending and learning how to effectively (and efficiently) maximize your presence on LinkedIn to grow your business.

Be sure to register now to reserve your seat for September 29th!  RSVP now for LinkedIn Success at https://www.meetup.com/wisconsin-business-owners/events/242519448/

Dominate Social Media to be a Winner with Lucas J Robak

Dominate Social Media to be a Winner
with Lucas J Robak and a snippet of Maggie Mongan

RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/wisconsin-business-owners/events/229075374/

Do you have less than 10K followers on one social media platform? 

Do you have less than a combined total of 10K followers across all your social platforms? 

Are you still thinking Social Media is for social purposes and not for generating business?

The real name for this morning session should be, “The Easiest and Most Economical way to dominate Social Media”. 

Social media is the best way to promote your business, services, and products in the 21st century.  It gives you visibility and credibility you couldn’t have 10 years ago. Using multiple platforms is one of the effective ways to gain exposure, get new clients, collaborate with other businesses, and promote your ideas, products, and services.  Learn how easy it truly can be for you.

NOTE: This is a very hands-on and how-to interactive session. Bring your fully charged laptop/tablet you typically work on. If you are able to complete the pre-work before the session, you will be able to practice the social media power moves Lucas will be demonstrating and helping attendees accomplish. The goal is for attendees to be guided through how to actually make their social media postings “go live” while we’re together. You’ll be amazed how fun and easy this learning approach will be for you and your business. Please click on our Discussion Page for your Pre-work Checklist:  http://www.meetup.com/wisconsin-business-owners/boards/thread/49618602

During the workshop, Lucas will train attendees to transition from still being a Social Media Loser to a Social Media Winner! Learn how to gain followers, come up with a social media plan, and integrate the top platforms to make your life even easier in this “everything needs to be easier” world.

If you’re interested in getting business in the easiest and most economical way possible, then stop making excuses and get on social media! Join us to learn how easy it can be.

Dominate Social Media to Be a Winner – With Wisconsin Business Owners Organizer and Presenter Lucas J. Robak

Lucas started with 500 twitter followers in May 2015, he now has over 20K followers ten months later. He also started with less than 50 Instagram followers in November 2015, not even 4 months later he has over 3K followers. Because of social media alone, he has been interviewed on multiple podcasts, internet radio shows, connected to 7 and 8 figure a year coaches, sold books all over the world, made real friendships who are referring professionals to collaborate with him, received free promotion, received a lot of free products, been asked to guest blog. Each day he gets in front of over 3,000 people while sitting around in his underwear. OK, maybe you didn’t need to know that 🙂
