The Power of Daily LinkedIn Rituals for B2B Professionals

by LinkedIn Marketing

When I run LinkedIn training or coaching with my clients I always ask at the end of the session ‘What are you going to do differently as a result of the insights I have shared with you today?’  While most people have at least one or two things they will do differently, I had one client who was a fast learner and used the training to develop a daily ritual on LinkedIn. He is an example of exactly what you need to do in order to get maximum value from LinkedIn.

The Benefits of LinkedIn for B2B Professionals

Before I share this client’s daily rituals with you, it’s probably a good time to remind you of the facts and related benefits of LinkedIn for your B2B business.

Fact 1: 4 out of 5 professional Australians are on LinkedIn

Benefit: If you target more educated, 30+ Australian professionals, you will find them on LinkedIn.

Fact 2: LinkedIn is NOT social media. It is the largest professional networking platform in the world.

Benefit: You have greater permission to ‘talk shop’ on LinkedIn than any social media platform. It is for business, not a chat.

Fact 3: LinkedIn is taken seriously by Australian businesses.

Benefit: If you present your business and employees well on LinkedIn, you are following best practice for Australian businesses online.

Fact 4: LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool for introverts.

Benefit: Networking face to face takes time and is hard work if you are an introvert. If you view LinkedIn like a virtual room for networking, then you will understand that you could be using LinkedIn messaging, your connections and LinkedIn groups as a way to network from the comfort of your office or home!

A Case Study: Daily Rituals on LinkedIn

Tom is the ‘fast learner’ client I recently trained. Two weeks after implementing these rituals he told me he believes this approach is reaping greater rewards than his previous efforts, because he is now much more focused and productive when on LinkedIn.

Here are his daily rituals, which he wrote out and has saved in an Evernote notebook so he can access it wherever he is.

  • Review and respond to your notifications
  • Like or comment on 1 or 2 updates a day
  • Manage invites to connect
    • Thank and keep in touch or;
    • Thank and ask how you can help
  • Once a week – share an article only if it is a good one
  • Whenever I present share a photo and @person’s name

    Thanks for sharing this story Karen and well done to Tom, some very useful and easy to implement habits.
    In answer to your question “what are you going to do differently with your daily LinkedIn rituals as a result of reading this blog post?”
    The number one daily ritual for me from this point forward is to have a daily ritual of working LinkedIn for a minimum set amount of time EVERY day.
    I will also tick off some of Tom’s as part of this process.

      Thanks for your comment Andy, and for sharing this on LinkedIn too. Yes, 5-10 minutes a day can reap great rewards. Remember to focus your time on your answer to these two questions as they relate to your LinkedIn presence. 1. What do you want to be known for? and 2. Who are you trying to influence?
