Leverage today's most valuable online business networking site LinkedIn® in this hands-on workshop in a computer lab. Reach 100+ million users. You’ll learn how to locate and connect with new prospects, potential strategic partners and even top-notch employees and consultants—right from your computer. This workshop will show you how.
Jerry Allocca is an active voice on the internet and a skilled instructor with a gift for making the web easier to understand. He knows what busy people want: a concise, realistic introduction to the world of Internet Marketing. Through workshops, books and CORE Interactive Marketing, Jerry has helped hundreds of leaders to get started, with proven techniques for building online influence: attracting the right visitors, succeeding with social media and accelerating online business.
CEOs, managers in charge of marketing and communications, and anyone who wants to get the maximum benefit from LinkedIn in the shortest amount of time. You will come away with actionable ideas that you can put to work right away. This 7 week computer-based workshop was created for people who learn best by "doing" and who want expert training in creating profiles, leveraging connections, joining in the social aspects of the community, and successfully transferring their business networking skills online.
Jerry explains the essential principles—in language that you‘ll understand. Discover why social media is fundamentally different from conventional marketing, and learn how to use the interactive nature of LinkedIn to get better results. He teaches successful methodologies–what works and what doesn’t – so that you’ll leave with strategies you can put to work right away. The Q&A section is one of the key parts of any CONNECTED CULTURE workshop, so prepare your questions about LinkedIn and social media and ask away.
Author of "CONNECTED CULTURE," a book that has rapidly become one of the go-to resources in internet marketing, Jerry leads CORE Interactive Marketing, his own thriving practice. As a 13-year expert in the interactive world, he's not only a proponent of LinkedIn but a fully operating participant–and his enthusiasm for interactivity will rub off on you. Jerry has used his LinkedIn network to meet other business professionals, establish strategic alliances, grow his business and get new speaking engagements.
Attendees will be supplied with lesson plans and how-to videos that make for invaluable take-home references and refreshers.
