In the second quarter of 2013, LinkedIn membership grew to 238 million business members. An accelerated 37% year-over-year growth.

LinkedIn mobile activity also increased, with mobile homepage engagement rising over 40%.

LinkedIn’s financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013

Tough Talk:

You might already know that Linkedin is the world’s largest and most professional online business social media networking organisation. New members are joining at the rate of 2 per second. What you might not know is that Linkedin is also undeniably the most fertile ‘business hunting ground’ on the planet.

As Linkedin continues its growth with wildfire proportions they are providing every member with a real opportunity to leverage their business networking platform for revenue generation and business growth.

Take a look in the mirror, unless you have a poltergeist, the person you see, is the only person preventing you from leveraging Linkedin for profitable business growth and revenue generation.

Top Linkedin Tip:

If you want to sieze the best business opportunities from 238 million other business hunters, you need to stand out and have a unique selling point (USP). Once you’ve identified your USP you then need to ensure 238 million Linkedin members know about it.

You do this by ensuring they can all find you super fast via the Linkedin Advanced Search facility.

And if you don’t know how to do this, you simply retain a Linkedin specialist or agency to re-write all of your Linkedin scripts to ensure they are super search engine optimised. Don’t view this as a business problem; view it simply as a business marketing expence, which will drive you towards profitable business growth.
