5fingersThis is a 5-part series of my quickest suggestions for becoming a LinkedIn star.

Of course, this presupposes you have been taking my advice in this blog all along (have you?)!

Number Four: Make yourself and your mobile device a genius

Download the free LinkedIn app to your mobile device/smartphone (iphone/ipad and droid have the improved Linkedin app, BB folks: you will just have to wait.)

Now you have access to the important people from anywhere! Review their profile before a meeting to see how you can break the ice, who you know in common, areas of mutual interest, etc.

Be a “go-to” person so others can lean on you to help access the treasures of LinkedIn at a meeting or on the fly (“Sure wish we had a contact at {…} does anyone at the table know anyone there?”)

Just use it.

Tomorrow, Number Five: “By all means, build community”
