How to Crush it on LinkedIn To Get Leads, High-Paying Clients, and Amazing Opportunities!

Several persons in social media network on world mapIf you want to build a high-income business, getting high-paying coaching clients is one of the fastest ways to achieve it. By coaching, you’ll learn what your customers want so you can create programs that give it to them while increasing your business profits. And the best way I have found online to get access to these clients, both directly and indirectly, is through LinkedIn.

By working LinkedIn, I have been offered the opportunity to speak at a major conference, free tickets to another major conference, the opportunity to create a bonus for a product that compliments what I do that will get my work in front of a whole new group of prospects, joint-venture partners, free coaching, and clients- a lot of good stuff! And, to be honest, the opportunities have the potential to make a lot more money than getting clients  directly because you are getting in front of hundreds or thousands of people at a time thereby creating leverage.

How do you get started?

The first thing you have to do is commit to it and be willing to do the work. Let’s be honest, its so much easier to keep doing what you’ve been doing than it is to tackle another social-media site! Plus, there is a learning curve. But, as you can see from my results (and I haven’t been doing it seriously that long) it is well worth the time and effort!

When I first started, I thought it just took too long.  In reality, it took about two hours a day…honestly, I wanted to quit; it just seemed to labor intensive. But, I decided to hang in, and I’m so glad I did as that phase only lasted a few days. Then, I figured out how to make it go faster (create swipe files and focus on a single target market). Before I knew it, I was sailing along, making contacts, and getting results.

So, commit to the process and be willing to do the work.

Next, create your profile.  Having a professional profile, with a good-looking banner that let’s your target audience know who you are and what you do, is vitally important; so don’t rush it.

It took me several weeks from the time I started designing my banner until it was done and a few more weeks to get enough of my information on the site to be ready to go live. (This is the most time-consuming part, but you only have to design it once, and then just make periodic updates.)

It has be organized so it flows and is easy to read, and it needs to include a summary, your experience, any books and/or publications you have written for, volunteer work (if you have any), causes you care about, courses you’ve taken, education, your interests, organizations you belong to, honors and awards, recommendations-anything that will help your prospects decide if they want to connect and do business with you.

The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for the right people to find something that you have in common that they can relate to and will give them the confidence to reach out to you.

Then, once your profile is up, you’ll want to start getting recommendations for your work because recommendations give you third-party validation, which is very important in social media.

Get that done and  you’ll be ready to start networking! But, you’ll want to do it the right way. You only get one chance to make a good impression.
