13 Minutes A Day On Linkedin!


I want to challenge you to spend 13 minutes a day on Linkedin.  Alot of times I get complaints that Linkedin doesn't work.  I always ask one question back.  When was the last time that you were on Linkedin.  I was surprised to hear, "1 year, 6 months or haven't been back on Linkedin since I set up my profile". Not sure how anyone expect to have results if they are never on.

So here is my 13 minutes  a day on Linkedin.

A.  (2 min)  View - who’s looking at your profile.

B.  (4 min)  Connect -Send some messages to connect. Make them custom to your  target Market

C.  (3 min)  CheckTabs - Home, My Network, Jobs, Messaging  and Notifications. You don't want to miss anything.

D  (4 min) Accepting  - Accept invitations that make sense.  Create your own rules around who you will connect with.  I shared mine in the video. 

If you do this 13 minutes a day, 5 days a week you will have results.

Hashtags on Instagram


Using hashtags on instagram is so important.  Take the time and make sure your using the right ones.  

  • Using hashtags for Instagram makes your content able to be found.  You want to use hashtags that are varied in numbers.  Such a 1 million or 10 million or 5 thousand or 10 thousand.  Mix them up.
  • You don't need to use 30 hashtags in every post! I usually post 10 to 15.  It varies and there really isn't hard evidence that if you post 30 you will be seen more.
  • Research your competitors and top influencers to find the best hashtags.  Find the experts in your field and see what they are using.  Also pay careful attention to how they post them.
  • Make sure your hashtags are relevant to whatever you're posting.  So if you were posting a marketing picture you would use the #food, but you would use the #marketing.

Hope you learned something, next weeks vlog I will go a bit deeper and share some...
