Activity and Audience You Need Both For LinkedIn Success.

My mother opened her tax office the year I was born.  At the time it was not considered “proper” for a professional to advertise, at least that’s the way she told the story.  The story goes on that she didn’t have much work so she went to other accountants and asked for work.  If the other accountant couldn’t pay her for doing work she’d do it for free.  She’d go around and collect all these big ledgers and then sit in the window of her office with this big pile of books doing work like she was a very successful accountant.  That helped her build a very successful practice.  A very simple, yet successful, idea because she had two ingredients activity and an audience.  Her office was on a street where there were a lot of people walking by and it was next door to the local bakery where all the local shop owners gathered in the morning for coffee.  This gave her a great audience.  Working on the ledgers was activity when people looked in her window they always saw her working.  She must be successful right. 

Sixty years later not much changed.  I am finding LinkedIn to be very much the same.  On LinkedIn no one is going to notice you if you don’t create some activity.  If you create activity you still need an audience.  Making lots of connections, gaining an audience is what this blog is about.  Make lots of connections and gain an audience.  Get more connections and stir in a little activity you will be surprised at what starts cooking.

Basically I am just a tax nerd, have been all my life. However I have found the more open you are to opportunities the better off you will be in this world. That makes my what is know as an open networker on Linkedin, I will connect with anyone. I am not an expert on Linkedin by any means but one day when I was asking someone to connect I mentioned that I had just been refilled on invites. My new connect asked how I did that. I used that same line for the next month and got asked the same question four times. I started thinking there was a lot of little things it took my sometime to learn. Through this blog I plan to share some of those "Linked Secrets"
