As someone who spends a lot of time on LinkedIn whom also sees a lot of results from LinkedIn I’m a massive cheerleader of the platform

I believe it’s a powerhouse for anybody moving in B2B circles and I believe that everyone can see results if used the right way

Often I’m asked – well is LinkedIn for me?

Usually my gut feeling that is if someone is asking, they have an inkling it is for them and they just want that reassurance of someone else telling them it is

To make it easy for you I’ve broken down 50+ Types Of People Who Might Want To Improve Their LinkedIn Marketing, it’s by no means exhaustive so do share you’re own below in the comments section
