People are nice enough to create slideshows on various topics and post them for syndication. This comes from a fellow LinkedIn member, Barbara Rozgonyi. The slideshow is a great introduction to LinkedIn, goes in to the basics of how to use it, what it’s best at, and how to become an authority source for your area of expertise. This last point takes time and LinkedIn questions and answers are only one part of that. There are many other ways in which you can be viewed as an expert in a particular field. Whether that is strictly online, a mix or even strictly offline, such as a lawyer, who may have a brochure site with sales materials, but also have people who vouch and speak to their excellent work through people that used these services. This is perhaps the best way, recommendations and verification from people who have no dog in the fight, so to speak. Anyway, click on to get to the slide show.
