Finding and connecting with clients online – using LinkedIn and Twitter

Gone are the days of cold emailing and cold calling (thank goodness), and these strategies are not effective any more. Today, most business to business marketing is happening online, and it is getting more personal. You have to get potential clients to like, know and trust you – connect with clients online. In this session you will learn how to use only two social media platforms:
LinkedIn and Twitter to find your target prospects and connect and engage with them. This is especially valuable if you cannot meet them in person during networking events, but also a great addition to local networking for building a relationship. In just 10 minutes a day, you can effectively build your business and client base, for free.

  • Know how to create professional, and client attracting profiles on LinkedIn and Twitter
  • Learn how to research and find your target clients on Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Learn how to connect with and engage with your target clients
  • Learn some do’s and don’ts for how to use these platforms
