LinkedIn Myth: No One Has Contacted Me Yet So LinkedIn Is A Useless Tool

Time for busting another LinkedIn myth: No one has contacted me yet. So LinkedIn is a useless business tool.

On the contrary! LinkedIn is a super tool, which helps you to find the people who are in the best position to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be.

However, many people think that if they make a Profile other people will contact them. When I ask the people who complain about this if they ever contacted someone themselves almost all of them remain silent.

Does that mean that LinkedIn doesn’t work? No! If you use the strategies explained in “How to REALLY use LinkedIn” to proactively use LinkedIn, it can quickly bring you new customers, a new job, new employees, suppliers, partners, expertise,…

Remember that if you want to see some results, you are responsible for them. You have to take action. And LinkedIn is a great tool to support you.

To your success !
