Little LinkedIn for Dummies

Yes, this week my newest book was launched:  the “Little LinkedIn for Dummies” or “de kleine LinkedIn voor Dummies” as the official title in Dutch is called. It truly is an amazing pocket full of tips and tricks to get started with LinkedIn.

At this point in time, Pearson (the publisher) chose to get started with a Dutch version only. Of course, they might decide to translate it into other languages as well. English will be top of the list 😉

  1. The power of networking
  2. Starting with LinkedIn
  3. How to build your network?
  4. The LinkedIn success strategy in 5 steps
  5. Create an attractive Profile
  6. Company Profile
  7. LinkedIn Groups
  8. Use LinkedIn to communicate
  9. 10 ways to find the right people
  10. 10 extra tools
  11. 10 extra tips

Where to buy it? Managementboek.nl, bol.com, Amazon and probably most bookshops in Belgium and the Netherlands.

How much? Only 8.95 Euro for the printed version or 5.99 Euro for the e-book.

How to REALLY use LinkedIn

LinkedIn is the largest professional (online) network in the world. The majority has 3 questions: “What’s in it for me?”, “I have a profile, now what?” and “How to get more results without spending a lot of time?”

Probably the best way to answer these questions is the book How to REALLY use LinkedIn“! Together with Jan Vermeiren, I wrote the second edition of this international bestseller.

"How to REALLY use LinkedIn" International BestsellerWith this book you will learn:

• 10 powerful ways to find new customers, employees or a new job
• 42 tips to make your profile stand out
• 11 strategies to apply LinkedIn at an organizational level
• 31 answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs)
• 30 lesser-known functions and opportunities
• Plus 53 new pages, including extra tips and timesaving tools

Discover also the free “Video & Tools Library”! It has a vast collection of how-to-videos and extra tools, including several Genius Shortcuts.

“How to REALLY use LinkedIn” is available in English, Dutch, French and Spanish. For more info check out www.how-to-really-use-linkedin.com

What most people don’t know (yet), is that Jan and I decided to

give away 1 million books for FREE!

Why?

To actively stimulate the economy! Too many people are looking for new customers, new employees or a new job. They are hardly using LinkedIn, because they don’t know the platform well enough!

At the same time, we are raising 1 million dollar for charity! Check out our website www.how-to-really-use-linkedin.com for more info. And remember to download the book for FREE as well! (English and Dutch versions!)

To your success!

The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Hong Kong invited me to speak at a breakfast workshop on “How to Really Use LinkedIn“.

It will be the first time that a Certified LinkedIn Trainer gives a LinkedIn session in Asia. Quite frankly, it will be also my first visit to Hong Kong. 🙂

Today more and more professionals are turning to LinkedIn to network, find talent and business, among others. But do they know the most efficient ways to use LinkedIn?
