The 3rd Edition of LinkedIn Made Easy has now been completed and, before I start a whole load of marketing activity, I’m looking for some LinkedIn Guinea Pigs to help me out. If you’d like to know more about how to use this professional network then I’d love to hear from you.ย 

LinkedIn Made Easy CoverWhat I’d like, is to give copies of the e-book to people who are serious about using LinkedIn more effectively. You don’t have to be on the network to start with, and you don’t need to be using it much to benefit from the book; at least that’s what I’m told. But, you do need to be open to working through the book and making the changes it suggests to both your profile, and your activity. If you do complete the process then I’ll be sending you a paperback copy as a thank you too.

In return, I’d like some feedback, perhaps a review or recommendation, and for you to take part in a short questionnaire before and after about your use of LinkedIn.

The book isn’t onerous to read, it could be done in a few hours, but the application of it will take some time. If you have some time to spare to try the network out then do get in touch.

How to Get Involved

If you’d like to get involved leave me a message below or email me linda@internet-mentor.co.uk. Then complete the survey you can find here: LinkedIn Use Survey, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete.

The 3rd edition has been completely revised and re-written with all the latest changes to the network in mind. It covers:

  • what you need to know about creating a strategy for its use
  • how to set up an account
  • what your profile is used for and why it matters
  • the advanced profile elements such as Rich Media
  • how to use groups
  • how to craft effective status updates
  • how to search the network for relevant, interesting material
  • what a connection strategy is and how to manage your connections
  • the concept of LinkedIn Company Pages and how useful they are

Together, with a whole host of other hints and tips it should make your time on LinkedIn really effective indeed.

  1. Hi Linda. I’d love to take part in this. I do have a LinkedIn profile and am ‘responsible’ for my company’s profile (my husband and I run our own business) but I am a very basic user and think that this would be an ideal opportunity to improve my knowledge and use as well as helping you.

  2. I’d love to learn more – I have a LinkedIn profile but am a bit useless on it … this sounds like a win-win situation and I would much like to take part.

  3. I started a profile there a decade ago, and haven’t updated since. If you need a test subject I could assist, although I would prefer to be a guinea fowl.

  4. I wouldn’t mind finding out how to use it better. I have a profile but am clueless on what to do now. I’ve had a profile for a couple of years now. Thanks for this amazing opportunity Linda!

      1. Oh right. I have a Sony ereader or a KindlePC. Either one will do. I finished the survey. Thanks Linda

  5. Hi Linda, I am at the point where I am ready to get going on LinkedIn. So if I am not disqualified by being a friend I would love to give the PDF version a test drive. I’ll pop over and take the survey now.

  6. Plunging into organising my life in 2013 with links to socialising on the media wave. Just set up a blog ‘space2play’ and thrown caution to the wintry wind with a first post. With linkedin, website, and facebook already on the go and raring to show the world a cohesive well dressed profile I would soooo benefit from learning more about how and why and who. Can I join in please?

  7. Hi Lynda, just sent a linked in request and completed the survey. I am keen to find out how to use linked in and will follow your book. I am a kindle user.
