LinkedIn training for SMES at West Lothian Chamber of Commerce

Members of the West Lothian Chamber of Commerce learned how they could use LinkedIn to grow their businesses at a special event held with LinkedIn Success Blueprint’s Miles Duncan.

Miles shared insights from his acclaimed training program and gave some examples of how SMEs are using LinkedIn to generate more clients, referrals and cultivate ‘go to’ expert status.

He told delegates that they could use the platform to promote their skills, people, products and services – but that the key to success is in building a value and trust economy.

One of the delegates said: “Miles showed where we have been going wrong as a business on LinkedIn.  I learned that we need to ensure that all of our staff profiles are demonstrating the core values of our brand.”

Another added: “The takeaways for us are that we could be using LinkedIn better and that it should play a key role in both our communications and business development strategy.”

Miles explained: “LinkedIn is perfect for SMEs. They can use it to communicate with their current customer base and implement a strategic approach to using the tools of the platform to grow brand awareness and to uncover new sales leads and business opportunities.”

Miles added: “I extend my thanks to the Chamber for inviting me to speak to the members and to share some of the insights from the LinkedIn Success Blueprint.”

LinkedIn Training: Building a value and trust economy

Edinburgh business professionals learned some advanced LinkedIn skills at a special masterclass given by LinkedIn Success Blueprint on Wednesday 18th May.

The invitation only LinkedIn training event for SMEs and Charities, held at the Dome on George Street, enabled Miles Duncan to show the delegates how they could use some of the tools of the platform to build a ‘value and trust’ economy.

Miles told them the importance of the concept that “your network is your net worth” and he gave several examples of how business professionals are using LinkedIn to build and leverage valuable networks of connections.

One of the delegates said: “It was a fantastic masterclass and Miles showed how I should be using LinkedIn to keep close to my current customer base and demonstrated a couple of ways that I could energise my connections to get them to help me expand my business.”

Another added: “I learned the importance of having a great profile and that I needed to urgently change my headline, summary and experience to make my profile more attractive an to communicate my value.”

Miles explained: “The key to gaining success on LinkedIn is to build trust and credibility. If you learn how to make and nurture connections in the right way, you will be well on your way to building a value and trust economy for yourself.  In this way you can use LinkedIn to provide a better future for your self and your business.”

Miles added: “I extend my thanks to the delegates for contributing to the success of this masterclass and for giving me the opportunity to share some insights from the LinkedIn Success Blueprint.”

Edinburgh business professionals gained some advanced LinkedIn skills at a special masterclass given by Miles Duncan on Wednesday 4th May.

The invitation only LinkedIn training event for professional services, held at the Dome on George Street, enabled the LinkedIn Success Blueprint co-creator to highlight some of the ways that the delegates could improve their profiles for LinkedIn and Google searches.

One of the delegates said: “It was a terrific opportunity for me to learn from an expert. I didn’t realise that I could take control of my profile and optimise it for search engines.”

Another added: “Miles showed us that he has been able to claim some page one rankings on Google for his skills.  He explained the simple process that he has used to achieve this.”

Miles explained: “People are often surprised to discover how much of their profile is being viewed by the search engines. There are five key areas where you must develop if you want to get your profile and you can really boost your chances of ranking highly in LinkedIn and Google searches.”

Miles added: “I extend my thanks to the delegates for contributing to the success of this first masterclass and for giving me the opportunity to share some insights from the LinkedIn Success Blueprint.”
