I generally split my prospecting days into two distinct parts.
In the morning, when I have lots of energy, I work the phones like a pro.
But by the time afternoon rolls around my energy for calls begins to fade.
And that’s when the second part of my day begins.
You are already on LinkedIn. But like most people you probably aren’t using it to its full potential.
When I hold my 2 day Selling Your Speaking to Associations intensive one of the most popular parts is the deep dive into LinkedIn.
During this workshop I’m going to show you how I’ve used LinkedIn to connect with over 10,000 association executives. More importantly I’m going to show you how you can leverage the power of LinkedIn Connections to grow your speaking business.
