Creating a Premium Personal Brand on LinkedIn
Tue 21 March 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM SGT
Is it possible to generate 80% business leads from LinkedIn without making a single cold call?
Walter Lim, founder of content marketing agency Cooler Insights, achieved that, and will share HOW he did it.
With over 400 million members, LinkedIn is the world's largest professional social network. It is the preferred social network for CEOs and top executives, and ranked as the most important social media channel for Business to Business (B2B) services and professional service providers.
Yet many people fail to brand themselves effectively on LinkedIn, and thus miss out many opportunities. (Most clients and potential employers check out your LinkedIn profile before deciding whether to meet you.)
Join this fun, practical and hands-on workshop conducted by Walter Lim and Singapore's leading Personal Branding Coach Eugene Seah, and be amazed at the difference 3 hours make.
Through this workshop, you will:
- Discover your blindspots on LinkedIn, causing you missed opportunities
- Recraft your summary to increase its appeal and impact
- Learn best practises in connecting with others to increase your influence
- Plan a series of articles to establish your credibility and authority through LinkedIn Pulse
- Understand the common traps on LinkedIn to avoid sabotaging your Personal Brand
