In the wonderful world of social media, it seems that Twitter, Google + and LinkedIn have the potential to do wonders for local businesses. As we all know, building an online presence is crucial in today’s digital society. Therefore, it stands to reason that your local business should tap into a variety of methods to spread your expertise and value via online reviews, tweets and as we have been finding lately leveraging the power of LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a great place to network with professionals in a chosen field and when used correctly your business can reach potential clients and referral partners across a variety of niches whether they be geographic or interest based.
