Product Description

Product Description

Updated July 2013: The 3rd Edition of Linkedin Made Easy has been fully revised and expanded to include all the latest updates to the LinkedIn Network in 2013.

New sections have been added that cover how to set objectives and put a strategy in place. Together with new chapters that show you how to use the opportunities presented in the brand new profile layout, company pages, LinkedIn Today and much, much more, LinkedIn Made Easy is the ideal companion for the new and veteran online networker.

This is the ‘how to guide’ written for those who want to be able to use the resources LinkedIn has to offer more effectively, and to greater benefit for themselves, their business or their company.

Whether you are a solo professional looking to forge alliances with others who can help you achieve your goals and ambitions; the marketing director of a large multi-national conglomerate, a small business owner or a student looking for their first job; Linkedin offers something for each of you to help you achieve your goals.

However, all too often people simply add their CV and hope for the best; occasionally getting involved when they see others doing something, but not quite sure about why they are doing it. And when the rewards aren’t forthcoming, they give it up as a lost cause and something that doesn’t work.

With loads of helpful information about each major element of LinkedIn that focuses on the use of free accounts, plus a handy set of ‘Recipes for Success’ for every occasion; LinkedIn Made Easy will have you developing your personal and business strategy in record time.

More About the Author

I am the author of eight non-fiction books about both business and women's health, one novel and one short story. I've also edited one anthology of winning entries to the Hysteria 2012 Writing Competition. I'm also a social entrepreneur and the Founder and CEO of one of the most influential websites for women having a hysterectomy. The Hysterectomy Association has been online since 1996 and morphed into itself in 1997. Over the years it has supported millions of women by providing them with impartial and timely information, as well as giving them access to a support network that spans the globe.

My day job as a social media strategist means I try to remove the mystique and fear from social media for the clients and businesses I work with. The biggest bulk of my work is in delivering the Social Media Professional Development training programme I've created, a job that regularly causes me to re-evaluate what I know and thinks about the way the Internet works.

If you'd like to meet me, you can often find me lurking at conferences, seminars and presentations either on or off the stage.

I live in rural West Dorset with her partner Steve and have no kids, dogs or cats and have no plans to acquire any either.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 25 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a well structured enriched user manual for LinkedIn, but this is not the one. The few screen snapshots are unreadable on a Kindle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good 6 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is easy to read and will give you a good understanding of how Linkedin works and how to make good use of it. I would not regard it as being excellent value for money though because you would expect a lot more content for a £14.99 book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very worthwhile read if you are on LinkedIn 30 July 2012
By Fey
Format:Kindle Edition
Although I had a LinkedIn profile prior to purchasing this book, I found this book extremely insightful with its handy tips to build and strengthen your profile. With the increasing use of social media, this book is a step by step guide to help get the best out of LinkedIn both from a personal and professional standpoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin... 9 Nov 2011
The perfect book for anyone wishing to use Linkedin properly. Lots of tips on how to build the most effective profile, and also what NOT to do (which actually turns out to be quite important in some instances!). I have recommended this book to friends who I know are on Linkedin but not using it effectively.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful book - waste of money 29 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't buy this book - go online, use the Linked-in online tutorials. This adds nothing and is a total waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting the most out of LinkedIn 6 Aug 2011
By Marco
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is easy to read and understand, and very useful to a LinkedIn novice. Even for the more experienced user there are still a few gems to be discovered. After all, there is a difference between knowing a programme or social medium and getting the most out of it. The book is also a useful reference to check now and then to make sure you have not forgotten a 'trick'.

Reading this book I was kind of pleased to see that I already knew most of it. However, the book did bring some useful tips and 'tools' to my attention that came in useful during my jobhunt - to get the most out of my network (1st and 2nd degree connections) and the companies I was interested in.

Being the medium that it is, LinkedIn is likely to change and modify itself over time, and therefore the book will need an updated edition or addendum. But then, this is valid for any book regarding a fast changing medium or tool (e.g. internet or computer software). Most of the principles and functions are likely still to be found in newer (layout) versions of LinkedIn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy way to get your head around Linkedin 3 Aug 2011
I'm fairly experienced with linkedin, but there were a lot small details in the book that I had'nt used on linkedin.. Linkedin is easy enough to just log in and get going, but the strength of the book is how it takes all the dispirate elements of linkedin and structures them into a sequence of insights and to do's. It's worth buying even for relatively advanced users.
