Grow Your Business with LinkedIn | Melonie Dodaro | Episode 38

  • How do you use LinkedIn the right way to grow your business and increase profits?
  • How do you connect with key decision makers?
  • And once you’ve done that how do you successfully take those relationships to the next level?

These are important questions because most people are still getting them wrong.

And that means they’re leaving a lot of money on the table.

LinkedIn may well have more potential for growing your business than any other social network. Yet even today it remains under-utilized and misunderstood.

And that’s great news, because it means it’s still a wide open business opportunity for you if you become one of the few people who know how to take advantage of it properly!

And on this show you’ll discover exactly what you need to be doing to leverage LinkedIn as we speak to top LinkedIn expert and author of the #1 bestselling book ‘The LinkedIn Code’ – Melonie Dodaro.

An online business resource Gary loves is…

  • Twitter – I should have seen that one coming, right! 🙂

Gary’s recommended book:

  • Gary gave us a great recommendation: “Outwitting the Devil” by Napoleon Hill. The background to this is that it took 75 years to get it published – something I had no idea about, but Gary explains the whole thing 37’43 into the interview.
  • It’s Napoleon Hill’s follow up to “Think and Grow Rich”, which is by far the most recommended book I get on this show. I definitely recommend you check that out if you haven’t already – it’s a must read for all entrepreneurs.
