Have you considered the fact that LinkedIn is more than just an online Resume?

Do you want to pursue the opportunities LinkedIn offers and get the job you wanted, obtain a promotion faster or spread your influence within your company?

Or maybe you want to solidify your reputation as an entrepreneur or professional in the online world…

Here are a few facts about LinkedIn from my perspective:

  • LinkedIn has an amazing potential for networking and it's how I made dozens of face-to-face meetings happen, both in a corporate environment and with entrepreneurs
  • LinkedIn allowed me to network with 100+ people in 2 months in a major Consulting company
  • LinkedIn is a great branding opportunity and it will be the go-to place for your personal online image

Double your Visibility Guarantee

I personally guarantee you will get measurable results if you implement the concepts I talk about. I'm so confident that I will personally guarantee you will see a spike in your visibility on LinkedIn after taking this course. That is the basis to increasing your connections, networking with executives and positioning yourself as an influencer.

If you feel that's not the case, I will PERSONALLY TRAIN YOU via:

- 1 to 1 Skype Calls to suggest changes to your Profile

- Tailored Strategy & Templates to approach Influencers in your Industry

- Advice on Publishing topics for the future

Shortly after launching the course, a student contacted me saying that he got approached by a recruiter a few days after implementing 10% of the aspects I talk about in this course. Imagine if you did 70% and were dedicated to improving your LinkedIn presence...

Here's what some students say about my course:

"As a fellow Udemy instructor with 5 bestselling courses I know how much commitment it takes to publish a comprehensive Udemy course. This production is certainly one of the best in the Social Media category.

Dragos is my good friend and I could see firsthand how much effort he put into delivering tremendous value to his students. I'm happy to see that all those weeks of hard work paid off and customers are loving the content.

Great job." - Jimmy Naraine - Top Udemy Instructor

"Respect. I have to say you put a good course together. I'm already thinking about implementing some of these tactics and getting material to tell a group social media marketers that I work with.

My all-time favorite is being able to extract emails from LinkedIn. You would never know that otherwise - well put together Dragos. Keep the quality coming." - Jim Jones

This course will reveal exactly how you can achieve all of these:

  • Get over the 500+ Connection base mark in half the time
  • Increase your Profile views x3 with only a few hours of work
  • Create and nurture your own niche community, skyrocket your profile searchability both in LinkedIn and Google results
  • Publish like Influencers and establish yourself as an expert in your subject matter.

Through this lecture I am by no means suggesting you should integrate your connections' emails automatically as part of any sort of list. That can very easily be considered SPAM. Even though you could contact them all via LinkedIn, having their emails is a valuable resource that should be used wisely.

Instructor Biography

Dragos Stefanescu, Founder at |15 Udemy Courses & 15,000+ Students

About Me

I'm an Internet Entrepreneur with a background in both the Management Consulting & Telecommunications industries. The skills that I have acquired during those stints and in previous years in general have unleashed my passion to teach.

I have a wide array of skills that I share with you via my courses

(1) Social Media

One of my true passions, I have invested a lot of time building a presence online. Highlights include:

  • Creating a connection base of 100+ people in a large Management Consulting firm within weeks of starting the job.
  • Met with a handful of Managing Directors & Senior Managers after approaching them on Social Media
  • Trained Partners on how to effectively make use of LinkedIn & Twitter to network and generate leads
  • Conducted Workshops with Project Teams and Small Enterprises on the use of Twitter and LinkedIn
  • (2) Resume/CV & Interviewing

With 30+ Job applications, I have gained a deep understanding of the recruiting process

  • I have never failed to get an interview (phone or face-to-face) after submitting my Resume
  • Participated in over 20 Job Interviews & Assessment Centres
  • Worked for a leading Management Consulting firm in a highly competitive market
  • (3) Productivity
  • Heavy user of Microsoft Excel & PowerPoint. I completely rebuilt the spreadsheets inherited from one of my teams, reducing the monthly updating time by over half the time (a few business days)
  • Co-produced reports that were ultimately held by members of the Board of Directors in one of the Multinationals I worked in (using Excel & PowerPoint)
  • General productivity freak, I love technology and always look for ways to make it work for me

How I got here…

Until recently I never really envisioned myself starting my own business. In fact, it was quite the opposite - my dream was to work for a large Multinational/ Consulting company and enjoy the riches of the Corporate life…

I soon found myself in what I thought would be my "dream job" only to do work that wasn't at all fulfilling, spending hours every day commuting and paying enormous rent (almost half of my salary) in one of the largest cities in the world. I felt stuck, limited and didn't think much of my future prospects.

I look back now and find it funny how at our lowest points we make life-changing decisions. Since a few members of our Mastermind Group had launched online businesses, I decided I would give it a try. I made up my mind that whatever happened, I absolutely HAD to launch an online product before my birthday.

Within two months, I launched my first Udemy course.

One month later I decided to quit my job (to the utter amazement of my colleagues, managers, friends & family - they probably thought I was crazy) and never looked back since.

My Goal

What I aim for is simple: I want to get you real results in the fastest possible time. Whether it's improving your presence on Social Media, getting your dream job, improving your productivity or self-development, I want you to walk away from my courses with a sense of achievement.

The courses I create are structured in a step-by-step manner so that you can implement them straight away. They do require your effort & commitment, but if you do that I'm extremely confident you can get to the next level.

Ultimately, receiving a message from a satisfied student detailing how I've helped him or her is immensely gratifying, more so than any number of sales.

Get in touch!

If you're one of my students and you want to ask me a question, or you're just reading this now and think we might have something in common then post a discussion item on one of my courses - I'll be more than happy to answer & get to know you better!
