Does LinkedIn help business

businessman having questions about LinkedInLast week during a seminar I had a gentleman ask me this question, “Can LinkedIn help our industry?”

He works in the electrical distribution industry.

It’s an important question that must be asked by anyone considering using LinkedIn as a business tool.

Even though he knows that making connections and building relationships is critical to growing a business, he wants to know how can LinkedIn contribute to this, again in his industry.

Therefore, I’m putting this question to you, my connections. Especially my distribution and manufacturing connections.

How has LinkedIn helped you in business?

Please share any and all relevant answers. Please tell us what Industry you are in when you answer this question with us.
