I've been at LinkedIn for almost 6 years, and there's so much to love about this site. The interesting discussions in groups, the Answers forum, the informative business and marketing articles on my homepage, as well as networking with awesome members. LinkedIn a MUST for anyone in business.
Still, Viveka's book totally wowed me. In every chapter she explained features and tweaks I didn't know existed. Her knowledge of LinkedIn and all the possibilities for businesspeople is amazing.
If you only buy one book about LinkedIn this is the one. New members will learn how to navigate the site successfully. Experienced members (like me) will learn how to make their time at LinkedIn even more profitable. I've read other books about LinkedIn, but this is by far the best. No doubt about it!
This is the best book on LinkedIn of the bunch. Viveka Rosen is clearly a 'guru' of LinkedIn, and she really loves LinkedIn - that comes through loud and clear. She also has good pointers to buried resources you might not find otherwise. It has a lot of great technical information, but like Scott, she gets lost in the technical details without giving you a big picture or structural map. None of the books situates LinkedIn in the context of all social media marketing, and while LinkedIn is great for some companies, it is not that relevant for others.
All of the books would be helped if that had an initial section on 'social media marketing' in general, and helped businesses and individuals to figure out if LinkedIn matches their marketing objectives before they dive in!
In terms of Viveka von Rosen, in particular, she is so incredibly important and famous on LinkedIn that I felt that at times she lost focus on the 'little people' who won't have her clout or importance. So the good news is she is a LinkedIn guru, and that's the bad news as well (isn't that so often the case?).
(You can find out more about me by clicking on my Amazon profile; or just Google 'Jason McDonald,' as I am No. 1 for my name).
This book provides you with a step-by-step process of setting up a professional profile that generate leads to your projects.
It also show companies how to set up an effective LinkedIn Company Page.
Viveka von Rosen also shows all then pros and cons of participate in groups, and also provide guidance for those that want to manage a group.
This is a must have book for entrepreneurs that want to take their business to the next level.
You will be guided through the secrets of having a Dynamic and effective profile that will land your next business goal.
I highly recommend this book.
I have used Viveka's tips on my personal profile, and with the clients whose profiles I have managed and the results have been favorable and consistent. As a Social Media and Business Development Specialist, I have invested in plenty of resources, tools, and books and very few are as thorough, clear, and actionable as this one. I highly recommend this book to individuals, business owners, and social media managers looking for a thorough guide with step-by-step instruction, broken down into sections for easy reference.
