Connecting the dots with LinkedIn

This week on “Amtower Off Center”,  host Mark Amtower is joined by Jim FitzGibbon, a fellow LinkedIn pioneer.  A little background: we had never met before the interview.  We connected on LinkedIn almost 7 years ago and Jim stays on my radar by usually being the first name of “mutual connections” when people reach out to connect.  So I reached out to him to see how he uses LinkedIn in his consulting business.

Topics include:

  • when  Jim started using LinkedIn (2003)
  • the early days of LinkedIn (not much to do)
  • how he uses it to vet prospects and look for leads
  • how his profile attracts qualified leads
