    Hello there fellow BHW members, I am looking to expand LinkedIn. But I am unsure as to what ways someone can assist me. With facebook you can increase likes, followers, comment likes etc...With Twitter Followers, retweets etc...but what is available with LinkedIn to improve for a new upcoming business? I am open to ideas, offers etc...

    2 key things with Linkedin are the size or your network and groups.

    Growing your network is important as your network comprises of 1st, 2nd and 3rd level connections, so your network grows by a much larger factor than just the people you are directly connected to.
    Basically if you connect to me, all my 1st and 2nd level connections will then be part of your network.
    My 1st levels are your 2nd levels. And then you are also connected to all the 1st level connections from your own 2nd level.

    Joining and creating groups is also very useful. They are good for networking opportunities and also any posts you make in groups are more likely to be read.
    And groups that you create are even better. People joining your own groups are much more receptive to anything you are saying and they will also more than likely connect to you as well.
