  16. 16 Generating Leads • Reach out.. That’s whatLinkedIn isfor! • Don’t be a spammer. Contact 1 or 2 people at a time. Don’t say the same thing to everyone. Personalize your conversations. • Direct vs. Indirect • Direct = contacting them and trying to sell on the spot. • Indirect = guiding them to a landing page where they can sign up for newsletter, download white paper, or just get more information. www.M2worldwidellc.com Contact Us 10901 Roosevelt Blvd N., Building C St. Petersburg, FL 33716  Phone - 877.768.6869 16 of 24

  17. 17 Company Page • Your company page won’t generate tons of leads. However, it does give you an opportunity to have a presence on LinkedIn beyond a personal profile, and it’s another place where people can do some research on your company. • Embedbanner images and videos in your company page, feed your blog posts and tweets, post job openings, connect with employees, gain insight (activity on page and who is looking at your employees’ profiles) • You can also feature your products on your page and seek recommendations for them. This can really enhance your credibility! www.M2worldwidellc.com Contact Us 10901 Roosevelt Blvd N., Building C St. Petersburg, FL 33716  Phone - 877.768.6869 17 of 24

  20. 20 Research • Research • Watching (via Google Analytics) which domain names visit your company website, gives you a clue about which companies might be in the market for your services. • Using LinkedIn, you can research the top decision makers to proactively approach--again, via a call, InMail or sending hard copies of marketing materials. www.M2worldwidellc.com Contact Us 10901 Roosevelt Blvd N., Building C St. Petersburg, FL 33716  Phone - 877.768.6869 20 of 24

  21. 21 Discern Patterns • Discern patterns. Notice who's connected in your industry. • In the marketing agency world, for example, there are several key consultants often tapped to help companies with an agency search. Noting that one of those consultants is suddenly connected to several execs at a single company may indicate that the company is poised to begin an agency search. "Which suggests to me that I might want to get my brand in front of them both," Straface says. • See full article:A Guide To Generating Leads on LinkedIn www.M2worldwidellc.com Contact Us 10901 Roosevelt Blvd N., Building C St. Petersburg, FL 33716  Phone - 877.768.6869 21 of 24
