LinkedIn is a great networking site for professionals. Basically it functions like a combination resume and networking page, and it can be very useful for those in the dance field. The marketing potential of this site is far different than Twitter or Facebook, but it can help you be visible in a different way…
LinkedIn is more formal than many of the other social networking sites. Here are a few tips for getting started:
- Take your time when setting up your page on LinkedIn. Make sure you get all of the information you can on there–people do browse through your resume.
- Establish some connections. Don’t just link up with everyone, but do search for friends or collegues in the field and add them to your network.
- Get some recommendations. These can help establish your professional image.
- Update your profile regularly. An active page reads better than a static one.
