13 LinkedIn resources


LinkedIn can be a great tool in both your sales and marketing toolbox. Of course, you first have to equip yourself with the knowledge needed to use it strategically, or it can potentially be a massive waste of time and resources.

Here's a list of resources you can utilize to make the most of your LinkedIn presence:

Sandler Resources

When it comes to LinkedIn, remember the five steps to growth:

  1. Awareness
  2. Knowledge
  3. Application
  4. Skill
  5. Habit

Once you are aware of the potential of LinkedIn, many of these resources can help you gain knowledge. But once you've done that, you still need to apply the knowledge over time to develop it into a skill and finally into a habit.
