Why Independent Consultants Should Use Linkedin
Following is a link to a great list of reasons why independent consultants should use Linkedin over other social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
We especially like the point they made about the professional setting of Linkedin. Essentially all of the people who are on Linkedin use the site for professional purposes making the site an excellent destination for the independent consultant to land new clients and grow their business.
Many people may not be open to hearing about their work on other social media websites because they may use those websites primarily for recreation and catching up with people they already know. It's always better to make a great first impression when the audience is open to receiving your message.
