Why LinkedIn Can Generate Revenue For Your Business

LinkedIn is an extremely powerful concept. Not only is it a worldwide social media platform, but it covers all sectors of business across the entire planet


LinkedIn is unique in business to business marketing. Traditionally contacting a company to try and generate a potential lead involves going 12 rounds with multiple heavyweight business gatekeepers. Each of these exist as barriers to the senior business decision maker they are shielding.

The fantastic news is, that LinkedIn has eradicated these gatekeepers by granting members the opportunity to establish a direct connection to all senior business decision makers & people of influence in a business. Furthermore once the decision maker accepts your connection, you have access to their email address, phone numbers, and all the information that the gatekeepers were previously protecting.

This positions Linkedin as the perfect platform for generating new revenue streams for your business. What would have previously taken weeks of follow up emails and telephone calls, can be achieved in an hour or two from establishing a single Linkedin connection.

If you are not generating regular revenue for your business from Linkedin then you need to stop doing what you are doing. Not NOW but RIGHT NOW.


Because if you keep doing what you’ve been doing then you’ll keep getting what you’ve been getting.

Tough Talk

If you are not already using LinkedIn to follow up potential leads then shame on you because you should be.


Because your business competitors are.

Sending a connection request, and following up with a thank you message could not be easier, especially using LinkedIn’s inbuilt InMail system. These powerful tools are free for all users of LinkedIn and are a super slick method for generating revenue.

Tool Tip

Sending a short thank you message to every one of your new connections is not only good etiquette which also reinforces a great early impression of you in your new connections mind.

Proactive or aggressive marketing is often frowned upon, but a simple courteous “what can I do for you, or how can I help you?” message is almost always received in a positive light.
