Groups: A smart use of LinkedIn

By April 24, 2013Blog
LinkedIn is one of the most powerful social media tools and is essential to lead generation efforts. If you already have a LinkedIn profile but rarely visit your page, try joining a few groups related to your industry. LinkedIn is a particularly fruitful social site for specialists looking to connect with generalists in a meaningful way. For generalists, LinkedIn can be a great way to stay top-of-mind for patients who are in the professional world and have a network of people that they can bring to your practice as new patients. It’s all about being in the right place at the right time.

If you want to boost your online image and make meaningful connections you should definitely consider joining some LinkedIn groups to assist your lead generation activities.

Distribute your company updates or helpful tips into groups, and make sure you follow up on all comments.
Happy grouping!
