5 Minute Linkedin Marketing Plan

They say your network equals your net worth. Here’s how you can increase your ‘net worth’ in 5 minutes a day.

The folks at Bluewire developed an infographic that outlines how you can grow your LinkedIn following in 5 minutes a day.

5 Minute Linkedin Marketing Plan

Beginner

1 MinuteAccept connection request. A common misconception of LinkedIn is that you should connect with people you know, or people you want to do business with right now.

3 MinutesSend a thank you message to new connections. Whether you know your new connection or not, it is always good to thank them for connecting with you.

1 MinuteRequest with 1 person. Aim to connect with at least one person per day, and your network will be thriving in no time.

Intermediate

3 MinutesCheck who has viewed your profile. This includes all potential leads or current connections who have recently viewed your LinkedIn profile.

2 MinutesShare content. If you have written a recent blog post, add it to your profile.

Advanced

3 MinutesShare a piece of content and submit it to LinkedIn Today editors. Reach out to the Business Development team at LinkedIn and share your content with them. Email them on publisher@linkedin.com

1 MinuteComment on the status or content shared by a person in your network. Choose someone in your network and comment on their status or some content they have shared…at least one a day!

1 MinuteOrganize a catch up with one of your contacts. This is the perfect time to connect with someone that you haven’t seen in a while…invite them for a coffee!

    All good tips! I found a few people that are very protective of their network. I mean, we are all grown ups doing business. Let your connection decide if they want to connect. You can’t make that decosion for them. Connected people who may benefit from an association. BUT as I learned from @girard_yann make sure both parties are agreeable to the connection. Ask and say why you’d think they’d be a good fit first. Thanks Yann.

  • I don’t full understand the Intermediate suggestion of adding blog posts to profiles in LinkedIn although I’d love to be able to! If I go to Edit Profile what do I then do? The only Background I’m aware of is the visuals that you can replace with your own image by uploading a graphic….help!

    • Hi Glenn. Use the “Publisher” link to create blogs on the LI platform. Hope that helped.
