Let me tell you about my friend Lewis Howes. He’s the “Linkedin Guy”. You may have heard of him.

We’ve done shows and webinars together, and we both generally believe that the new tools that are available to all of us are changing the world, and your small business, one at a time… for the better.

LinkedIn Tips, Tricks & Secrets

lewisdeskI speak all over the USA about social media. So I get all kinds of questions sent my way. The biggest question I get is this…

“Jim, can I use social media to make me more money, or get my business more leads, or help me to get written up in the press?”

My answer is always the same.

“Yes, and it’s easy, if you learn how to use the tools.”

Take for example.

If you’re like me, you probably created a LinkedIn account for the first time and then did nothing. That doesn’t work. I was just like you.

Then I met Lewis Howes, a guy who I’ve become friends with that has unlocked the secrets of Linkedin. I bought Lewis’s book about LinkedIn and have now learned how to use it for my business and my personal brand.

Check out Lewis’s new guide called The Ultimate LinkedIn Toolkit.

With his guide, you can:

1. Learn How To Create A Rock Star Profile!

2. Generate Warm Leads, Attract Clients, and Build A Massive
Niche Following!

3. Learn How to Draw a Massive Audience to Your Event!

If that’s not good enough, Lewis is offering a 100% personal guarantee on his guide. I know Lewis, and I trust him, and I’ll personally guarantee his guarantee.

The best part about learning how to use tools like LinkedIn is that you never have to pay for advertising again. You just have to know how to use these tools first.

Lewis and I did a paid event together the other day where he talked about LinkedIn in greater detail. We also did a live streaming Web show. I’ll post that show soon.

By the way, let’s connect on LinkedIn. :)

Learn How To Use LinkedIn Effectively

What’s the number one question I get from people when I tell them they MUST be on Linkedin? (click to connect with me). They ask me, “Ok, Jim… Why?”.

Well, the answers are pretty simple once you realize the power of Linkedin, and the good news is Lewis Howes has just released his new book on that exact subject!


The even better news is you can win an autographed copy of the book signed by Lewis and co-author Frank, handed directly to me at a Linkedin networking event.

Want it? Here’s how to get it.

1. Connect with me on Linkedin
2. Leave a comment below on this post with your linked in profile link

I’ll pick a winner next week and ship the book to you. USA only please. And if you don’t win, buy the book. I’ll post up a video review soon.

Linkedin vs. FaceBook – It’s All About The “FREE”

According to CNN money, says it will own business networking.

In the future, everyone will likely maintain two online profiles. So said LinkedIn CEO Dan Nye in an extended lunchtime interview last week here in Fortune’s conference room/pool hall. We had opened the conversation with THE question of the moment: in a Facebook world, what’s the future for LinkedIn — or for that matter any other “vertical” social network?

Stealing some of his material from LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman on the matter, Nye said people will build one profile for their personal life and another for their professional life. The argument, self serving as it is, makes a certain amount of sense. Not good to have a prospective employer stumble on to those photos of you freshman year in Delta Kappa Epsilon.

I might agree, if only they were actually priced affordably. They’re not. That’s the only reason I don’t shell out for a account every month… It’s just too expensive. What kind of strategy is that?


What would I pay? $5/month, tops. Yeah, I know it’s free to a certain extent, but free is of course relative. I cannot use the system fully for “free”. $19.95 for “basic” access is too much. “$200/month” for pro, are you kidding me?

With all the other choices out there of connecting virtually, why would I pay?

Is there room for Linkedin and Facebook? Yeah, I think so. But I’m telling you this, the winner will be the one who prices it right.
