LinkedIn Success Stories

Posted by benasmith on October 9, 2008

Two great success stories for LinkedIn. For all those doubters on the value of LinkedIn or other professional networking sites, these are great examples of effective use LinkedIn to generate business and create new sales. The results are directly attributable to the subscribers making good use of the resources the site offers.

First, a great example of a LinkedIn subscriber successfully launching a business and generating great sales entirely thanks to creative use of LinkedIn groups and the status update feature.

Second, a LinkedIn subscriber using the site to reconnect with an old client and convert that former client in to a new $1 millon contract.
