This week’s episode of Good Girls Get Rich is brought to you by Uplevel Media CEO and LinkedIn expert, Karen Yankovich. In this episode, Karen shares how you can use LinkedIn to maximize virtual events and conferences.
COVID has changed our world, and that includes the way we network. With many events being held online, it’s important to learn how to connect with others virtually.
I miss in-person events and conferences. But with current limitations due to COVID, it’s important that we learn how to network on virtual events. It can be difficult to adjust to at first, but once you get the hang of it, you might find virtual-event networking to be more beneficial than in-person networking! So how can you use LinkedIn to maximize virtual events?
1) Ramp Up Your LinkedIn Profile
First, start by making sure your LinkedIn profile is in tip-top shape. Your profile is the place to display who you are and who you’re becoming. If you need help fine-tuning your LinkedIn profile, there are countless Good Girls Get Rich episodes for you to listen to and learn from!
2) Strategically Connect with People
Next, when you’re attending the virtual event, you’ll most likely be divided into a break-out room. When you are in the break-out room, take time to get to know the people, and take notes about the people you’re connecting with. Then, block out an hour after the event to spend time following up with the people you connected with.
3) Follow Up
Of course, you can’t connect with everyone, so prioritize who you think you could collaborate with the best. Then, make sure to connect with them on LinkedIn, and try to set up a time to jump on a phone call with them.
Virtual events bring many networking opportunities, and LinkedIn is an invaluable tool to help you connect with others and move forward in your business goals!
