How to maximize your LinkedIn presence has been a hot topic these last few years. LinkedIn has grown to be a viable business and prospecting tool from many people. LinkedIn's presence has been best described as a business related social networking site serving more than a 120 million registered users. On a monthly basis Linkedin's presence has been upwards of 50 million visitors a month. Can you just say wow?
LinkedIn for me has been a great tool for providing awareness of my two oldest sons rare neurological disease called Niemann-Pick Type C disease and from a professional stand point. On my profile I truly dedicate it to Brisan and Parker. It is such a rare disease that I feel I have no choice but to share this information with everyone. We all are familiar with Alzheimer's, Stroke, Atherosclerosis, and even HIV/ Aids. In each of those diseases cholesterol build up plays an important role in how it plays out. Niemann-Pick Type C takes place because of the cell's inability to metabolize cholesterol (the good kind). With it's relationship to these other more common diseases surely researchers and donors would want to invest further into Niemann-Pick Type C because NPC is found on Chromosome 18. Huge considering they have linked a gene/ chromosome to cholesterol. Here is my Linkedin profile.
Below is a short slideshare presentation that Evan Weber of Experience Advertising talked about at Affiliate Summit New York just a few weeks ago. Ironically I have never met Evan but have exchanged a few minor messages on LinkedIn in the past. I came across it this morning and thought it is was great to share with everyone. He most certainly provides great information.
