A few years ago, I wrote a post about how to get more value out of LinkedIn, but I really haven’t given enough love to the site since them… And I have an idea for how to change that. Starting this week, I’m going to start writing one recommendation each week.
I’m starting this “recommendation” project with Kris Berg because she’s one of my favorite people in the world of real estate… (Plus she doesn’t have many recommendations on LinkedIn which is a true shame! If you know and like her, you should stop reading this post and head over to her profile and write a recommendation for her as well!)
Why commit to writing a weekly recommendations?
I have two purposes:
- It’s fun. I really do enjoy the process of complementing folks who I’ve enjoyed working with and wish I did more of it.
- I want to play more with LinkedIn as a sphere building tool, but don’t want to dedicate a ton of time to the project. I’m guessing I can knock out a solid recommendation in less than 20 minutes a week.
With that said, there’s so much more to LinkedIn these days with groups, Q&A, job opportunities, etc. that I’m sure there’s much more I *could* be doing. If you have a more effective way to use LinkedIn, please share! ;)
