Description

*Please note this is a basic course - only applicable to those completely new to LinkedIn*

LinkedIn is the most powerful corporate social network for anyone in business or looking to forward their careers. In this course I will teach you the basics of this platform. We take a look at your profile, building your connections, how to use groups and the search system. 

Its a course thats great for anyone looking to get started with this platform. 

I also have an advanced course on Udemy which goes into more detail on each section of this course and looks more at the options for anyone looking to build leads for their business.

A quick bit of history: I started using LinkedIn about ten years ago. It was one of the first social media sites I found a real affinity with. In the last 17 years I have built a business from just two people to twenty and head up the sales element of said business. I generate more leads and opportunities through LinkedIn than any other social network. 

I have spent the last five years training my clients face to face in how to use this incredibly powerful platform. I've taken that content and created these online courses so you can be sure that the material has been tried and tested over a number of years. 

This incredibly powerful social media platform is one of the most important B2B channels out there. I will help you get to know how best to use it in a fun, friendly and professional manner. 

I hope to see you on the course. All feedback is always welcome.

Director of Optix Solutions - UK Digital Marketing Agency

I started my main business Optix Solutions, a digital marketing agency when I was just 19 out of a bedroom at Exeter University with a few course mates. Over the last 17 years that company has grown into one of the leading digital agencies in the South West, employing over 15 people and working with the likes of Exeter University, Stags Estate Agents, Ashfords Solicitors and the NHS. 

I have a passion for public speaking and have talked at events all over Europe. I have spoken on Exeter University's One Planet MBA as well as the prestigious MBA program at London Business School both on the topic of digital trends. 

I have a keen interest in Entrepreneurship and sit on the board of a number of other companies. I run my own YouTube channel giving advice and tips to budding entrepreneurs.

I live in Exeter with my wife Lizz, two children Oscar (2) and Alexa (3 months), my dog Freddie and cat Wilbur. I'm a fanatical skier and support West Ham as well as The mighty Exeter Chiefs. You can find me on almost every social media site so please look me up and engage, after all thats what social media is about right?
