LinkedIn is a fast growing social media website that helps you network with your business contacts. It can be a powerful tool for connecting with prospective clients and customers, your peers within your industry, and current or future employees.

VHPR helps companies use LinkedIn to its full potential. Here are two tips for those just starting out:

  1. Get your profile to 100%. To do this you will have to fill in most of the information fields, upload a photo of yourself, recommend your peers, and receive recommendations.
  2. Connect! LinkedIn allows you to sync your profile with your email accounts. Take advantage of this and add anyone who you consider a business contact or good friend.
