There is a recent post by Colin Alsheimer where he says that LinkedIn is dead.
Now I’m sure Colin may be misguided like most of the people I encounter who don’t “get” LinkedIn.
And that is OK.
I’m not going to get too heated on this debate, because I realize that everyone has different goals and objectives, and some sites may be better than others in helping you achieve your goals.
Still, I have yet to find someone who is unable to achieve their professional goals on LinkedIn. And if you are not currently achieving something you want in business yet, please write it in the comments section below and I will do a brief personal video showing you how to achieve it on LinkedIn.
Of course, as with anything, you get out of it what you put into it, and Rome wasn’t built in a day so there may be some grunt work needed to achieve your goal. But with the size of LinkedIn, and the power of its network, I’m more than convinced you can achieve any business goal you have if you approach it right.
Check out my video response above where I show how LinkedIn is alive, and I hope you check out some previous videos on this site where I go into more detail on LinkedIn’s greatness.
Oh, and Colin, I know you quoted Chris Brogan in your post also, but I just did a video response on how Chris should be using LinkedIn to grow his business. I hope you get a chance to check it out here and let me know if you still think LinkedIn is dead, as I enjoy the friendly debate.
