A Business Hunting Expedition On The Linkedin Savanah

November 6, 2013 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog

As Linkedin continues its global expansion with wild-fire proportions, what does it mean to the average 260 million plus Linkedin grunts?

Quite simply Linkedin’s third quarter 2013 results provide irrefutable proof that Linkedin is the world’s largest professional business network on the Internet.

For Linkedin members, this means that we can all go hunting in the world’s largest, most fertile and overly stocked hunting ground on the planet without the fear over hunting.

Although Linkedin reports that…

Talent Solutions revenue represented 57%, Marketing Solutions revenue represented 23% and Premium Subscriptions represented 20% of total revenue in the third quarter of 2013 the greatest bonus for the rank and file Linkedin business members is the exponential growth of new business members.

From a business growth perspective this means that the sheer volume of new leads, referral and opportunities is simply staggering.

No more so than for the most experienced business hunters and professional power networkers who provide business growth consultancy services for business owner clients?

Linkedin states: In the third quarter of 2013:

LinkedIn membership surpassed 259 million members, as growth increased to 38% year-over-year, and members engaged at record levels across desktop and mobile devices. Strength was driven by investment in core products improving how members manage their identities, their networks, and consume and publish content.

Full Year 2013 Guidance: Revenue is revised upwards to approximately $1.5 billion.

Frankly I’m quite amazed that so few Linkedin members have switched on to the fact that Linkedin provides an over abundance of potential business growth leads. And these are no ordinary ‘pay your money & take your chances’ leads. Linkedin allows you to drill down through multiple layers and through multiple regions and zip codes to identify leads close to your home or place of business.

I inform every one of my clients that: everything and everyone you need to grow any business, anywhere in the world exists on Linkedin. All you have to do is retain a Linkedin business growth consultant to lead your hunting expedition.

The proof is in the pudding so to speak, as over 90% of all my new business leads, referrals & sales opportunities are generated though Linkedin.

Some of our clients are actually generating 100% new business from Linkedin. If that’s not a powerful indicator of a fertile hunting ground, then I don’t know what is.
