I have 21000 first level connections on LinkedIn and need to know how to monetize my network as a small business owner of dust suppression products, packaging products such as KP machine films, glue and clips, etc. large mining tires (OTR tires) and commercial explosives and avalanche mitigation products.
I currently use HubSpot CRM software to try to keep up with clients but I need to integrate LI more into sales process.
Hi Neal, one way to increase your contacts is to go to put your business on the search engines. Your main focus should be value for money. Your products, what they do and what issues they address. Seems like you address environmental and workplace safety issues. There are companies that specialize in cost reduction and risk reduction for business, they may use some of your products to address safety issues. I believe the search engine approach would help. Next step after search engines, is to get your company to move to the top of the search engine query, so your company comes out high on the search engine results. You may have to write multiple descriptions of your products so they appear in different search engine query results. Have fun!!
