Making Millions with LinkedIn

One Guy's Story

[ Social Media]

LinkedIn has posted a "success story" about a guy that has used the social network to help him make millions of dollars. It’s probably safe to say that LinkedIn isn’t solely responsible for this man’s success, but he had no problem providing a testimonial about how it played a part.

LinkedIn has plenty of critics, which is evident as I have posted articles about how many professionals see it as their preferred network for business networking. People are often quick to point out the problems they have with it.

Nevertheless, Jeff Rogavin of Buddy Media, the successful man in question has provided the following tip (and a few sub-tips):

Come recommended and reach out to the right person at the right company:

– Update your professional summary and request recommendations from your LinkedIn contacts who know what you do best

– Search for the right person to connect with by job title, company, location or keyword

– Review profiles to see if they’re a fit for your proposal and request an introduction through a common connection, or send an InMail directly to that person

LinkedIn has done a number of things to enhance the user experience lately, such as integrating address books with profiles, and introducing a bunch of new search features. Doug also recently talked about some tips for building a profile.

    This is a nice thing to hear. The internet is a great place to make money, but one just has to find out how to do it. To find out how, one has to conduct hours of online research. Another important thing is that one has to have a plan or a business model, a model that has a great upside. A rule of thumb is to create a business model about something one really enjoy doing, and would do it even without pay.

      From a young age I have relentlessly tried to make millions. But what is unique is that being the eldest son of a big family I could not save any money from my job. So I tried to formulate plans that will give me millions without any investment and after many lines of busness which could not be carried to its maximum limit for lack of capital in proper amount I somehow made my millions using my brain. Written a book to guide others by the name HOW I MADE THE MILLION marketed by Eloquent books as an e book.

    Interesting video, I see what he is doing. It’s just that like most things it takes hard work to get return from it. But it’s great that you can go on there and for a low cost get business.

    Yes I have heard quite a few success stories just like this one which involve gaining success from LinkedIn and its really good to hear these but I sometimes doubt can LinkedIn really be this much helpful because till now I haven’t had mentionable success from it, neither have my other webmaster friends gained any success.
