I posted this on ActiveRain, a blogging platform dedicated to real estate-oriented professionals, but I think it is a great networking site for any business:
So far in this middle-agent’s explorations into Web 2.0, my best find has been LinkedIn. While in the category of social networking, LinkedIn is more business oriented than Facebook, MySpace, etc. Enter your full professional history, education, and interests and find connections for networking. You can also get introductions to folks in your connections’ networks. I think you will appreciate the business like interface.
My best helpful hint for LinkedIn is using recommendations. After setting up my account, I was able to quickly find some recent clients who were happy to recommend me as a great real estate agent!
Visit my linkedin profile, and let’s make a CONNECTION.
