#000 – Using LinkedIn as a Business Tool

Stan RelihanStan Relihan is a Recruiter & Headhunter in Sydney, Australia. Although not strictly speaking an Episode of ‘The Connections Show’, it was this interview with Cameron Reilly on the G’Day World show (and the subsequent challenge Cameron set him) that became the catalyst for this show’s genesis.

  1. Tony Hollingsworth Says: November 8th, 2008 at 6:38 am – Stan – glad to have been reminded of this great podcast and I hope it gives others new to LinkedIn an opportunity to learn more about this incredible tool and how it can be of great business benefit. When I stumbled upon this podcast late last year I have since expanded my network and use of tools like LinkedIn – and enjoyed the benefits. I like the way Lee Lefever describes LinkedIn on his Commoncraft video too. I am also intrigued by LinkedIn’s recent expansion to include some new tools, including various applications to further add value to our use of the service and how we can enjoy the business benefits it provides. This podcast, “how it all began” remains an excellent introduction to LinkedIn so I thank you for the refresher, Stan. Best regards, Tony Hollingsworth
  2. Gary Unger Says: November 8th, 2008 at 7:30 am – Wow. To hear the “low” numbers of connections compared to now it’s great to see how far you’ve come. Loved the line at the beginning about “you gain more by sharing than hoarding”. Great job. Thanks.
  3. Louise M. Kidney Says: November 10th, 2008 at 10:59 pm – Hi Stan,Yes, I agree with Gary – back then you only had 5,000 connections. Now, you’re a ‘super-LinkedIn’ individual! Your show continues to be an inspiration. Thanks.
  4. Iggy Pintado Says: November 11th, 2008 at 8:48 pm – Stan This was a great episode to listen to and I was amazed at how relevant your insights were even after a year. Also, thanks for adopting the ‘pushcast’ technology that sends the show direct to my Blackberry. It’s easy to use and I don’t have to worry about missing any episodes – I love it! Cheers, Iggy
  5. Joe Rinehart Says: December 3rd, 2008 at 12:53 pm – I found you on LinkedIn and decided to visit your show 🙂 Wow, exciting, & very informative… It is absolutely wonderful that you share your expertise and find others “qualified” to share theirs! This is the closest thing that I’ve found which I’d define as “Open Source radio”! You’re the best! Best ‘net regards, Joe
  6. LaShea Miller Says: December 4th, 2008 at 1:47 am – Thank you for responding to my invitation with an email introducing to your podcasts. I indicated in my personal response to your acceptance of my invitation that I am new to the Social Media marketing platform and a bit skeptical. However, I feel more confident that all the time and effort spent will lead to an influx of new opportunities and clients.
  7. Nikhilesh Mathur Says: February 11th, 2009 at 5:55 pm – I came across this podcast by accident and loved the conversation between Stan and Cameron. Thats the thing about social media. To make a connection. Talking about a topic that I am interested in helped as well. Even though I have been using LinkedIn since early 2005, I feel like digging in again and connecting with more people. Thanks Stan. Maybe I can challenge you some day with maximum number of connections? 😉

#001 – It all started with a Challenge

Cameron ReillyA few months ago, I was interviewed on Cameron Reilly’s ‘G’Day World’ show, here on the Podcast Network, on the subject of ‘Using LinkedIn as a Business Tool’.

Many listeners found the show to be very helpful to them in communicating the benefits of LinkedIn to their friends & colleagues – and it has since been picked up and re-posted on a number of other blogs and web sites. In the interview, Cameron (a ‘LinkedIn skeptic’) set me a challenge that was a test for both my own Network and the power of Social Networking in general.

Now, as a result of successfully meeting this challenge, I’m hosting my OWN weekly show (starting with this Episode) – on how people are using Social Networking and other Web 2.0 tools & applications to gain a business benefit. In this episode, I turn the tables and interview Cameron – and finish off by setting him a challenge…

  1. socialFIEND Says: September 11th, 2007 at 4:49 am – Stan,You and Cameron are showcasing a phrase I coined, “Social Equity” as it applies to Web 2.0 technology and social networking. On my blog, I’ve coined a phrase: ‘Social Equity’, to express what people mean to people they interact with. In sociological terms social equity may bring to mind a groups struggle to gain racial equality or access to shared public resources. But in the context of social community, networking and online PR “Social Equity” as I define it is one person or brands value and relevance as perceived by a public internal/external, group, person or community. Think of equity as value and social is the community segment you influence or impact with your thoughts, actions, and marketing tactics. The stronger your sway on your public the greater your social equity in that public.”It’s interesting to observe your application of this thoery. Great Podcast. I’ll be tuning in from here on in. Keep up the great work guys. And please keep us posted to your findings. Best Regards, Kenneth “socialFIEND” Knapp
  2. Destiny360 Says: September 11th, 2007 at 1:57 pm – Hi Stan :Great show! Thanks for carrying the torch and keeping the “challenge” going. Podcast demographics, driving traffic, and advertising are difficult on the web–but leveraging a tool like Linked-In may be able to really influence. I was surprised that Linked-In in Australia is so much different than Europe or USA as far as ready acceptance for networking. Thanks for the great tips on books and websites for learning more on how to more efficiently build a Linked In Network for business purposes. The jury is still out on Facebook and it’s success in the social networking arena and building business relationships better than Linked-In. It is tough keeping track of too many types of social networks.
  3. Neal Benedict Says: September 12th, 2007 at 6:51 pm – Hi Stan,Enjoyed the show. Ideas on how you and others are maximizing the value of business/social networking tools helps me to formulate some of my own. Keep building your network and best wishes getting to 500k connections. I look forward to future podcasts. Neal
  4. Ronald Wopereis Says: September 13th, 2007 at 12:14 am – hi Stan, great show, digg done, score now is 45. best regards, Ron
  5. Ramon Thomas Says: September 17th, 2007 at 10:56 pm – Thanks for an excellent podcast. I’ve subscribed via iTunes and look forward to interacting with you. In South Africa we now have about 35,000 LinkedIn members. I’ve just crossed 1,000 connections and have already done one radio interview about it with my friend Brian Brown, who’s #2 in South Africa.
  6. Justin Lippiatt Says: September 18th, 2007 at 12:38 pm – I thought the podcast was very informative, and look forward to listening to more in the future. As a recently landed South African in Melbourne, I was looking to establish a network. I have been LinkedIn for quite some time and have never used the tool. I have already seen the benefits of LinkedIn and I look forward to expanding and getting connected. The podcast is an awesome medium to personalise the network and to contextualise the core of networking – relationship building. Thanks Stan your guidance was on the money!

  2. Matti Mattila Says: September 18th, 2007 at 12:59 am – Great show and excellent guest! Matti
  3. John Young Says: September 18th, 2007 at 3:49 am – Having been early into LinkedIn I then forgot about it. The last 2 weeks I have been using LinkedIn to track down a bunch of people I worked with at Sun in Australia and New Zealand and have been amazed at how much the system has evolved. This interview with Christian Mayaud gave me some insight into just how intense the LinkedIn phenomenon has become in some people’s working life.
  4. Jason Patino Says: September 18th, 2007 at 6:22 am – Great interview!!! Christian helped me with a nice phone call when I first started on LinkedIn and now I am the largest network in Michigan at 4300 first tier connections. I learned a good bit on how to think of my network from this podcast and found it interesting. In fact I want to hear it again to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Chris can really get going when he is walking through his subject matter and I certainly want to retain as much of that as possible. Jason Patino
  5. Jerry Says: September 18th, 2007 at 4:46 pm – Great guest!! Wonderful to hear someone with both the clarity of vision and the humility and discipline to test the assumptions with data. Smashed some of my erroneous thinking. Great value. Well done.
  6. Robert Yang Says: September 18th, 2007 at 11:18 pm – Hey Stan, This is great. Some great information and insights about LI history. Regards, Robert
  7. Cy Witherspoon Says: September 19th, 2007 at 9:00 am – Great show Stan, I found the podcast to be very informative and interesting. I especially liked the upcoming forum that Christian and his fellow Lions, are coming up with. I look forward to future Podcasts. Thanks for the reminders of your show and keep them coming. Sincerely, Cy
  8. Caryl Says: September 24th, 2007 at 12:50 pm – Hi Stan : Thanks for another great interview. Chris did an excellent job of explaining Linked-In history and the concept behind high performance networking. His CAN (currently active network) of Lions are actively studying future networking ideas on Web 3.0 using other tools as well as Linked-In. Timing is everything. Chris had the foresight to see a great technology and vehicle for advancing venture capital deals. He is one of the early players in Linked-In. Chris’s explanations of how Linked In is and is not a network was very insightful –especially to those of us who are late arrivers to Linked-In. It was very instructive that he used examples from his primary profession as a doctor and sprinkled in his additional role as a venture capitalist. He gave excellent analogies using both professions. Chris thanks for your tips and ideas!

  2. Caryl Says: October 7th, 2007 at 8:47 am – Hi Stan : Scott offered some good tips and understanding of how to build online business relationships. His LinkedIntelligence website appears to be very successful at attracting web traffic. I look forward to visiting his website and reading some of his blogs. Also, his offer to do make-over profiles for people–what a great idea! Again, he has a keen sense of business and how to work networks. Thanks for having him on your show.
  3. Louise M. Kidney Says: November 1st, 2007 at 10:48 am – A make-over profile – maybe I need that and didn’t know it. Food for thought! Louise
  4. Michael Szpilzinger Says: January 18th, 2008 at 5:47 am – I echo your sentiments on the annoying fact that the recommendations are not visible on the public profile. I also like sending my profile link as kind of a resume/portfolio and I don’t really understand why they have it set this way.

  1. Leutrell Osborne Sr Says: October 1st, 2007 at 3:27 pm – Sheilah did an outstanding job in sharing her experiences with Linkedin especially the questions and answers. Perhaps many ought to listen since few of really take advantage of the tool. I will do better. Thanks Sheilah.
  2. Devesh Says: October 1st, 2007 at 5:43 pm – Sheilah, Thanks for sharing all your secrets 😉 Appreciate your help and generosity. You have been an asset to my network. Devesh
  3. Sandra DeChant Says: October 1st, 2007 at 11:03 pm – Sheilah; The information you shared with me has been very appreciated. As someone who has just branched out as an independent, your advice has been quite helpful and appreciated. You have been more than just an asset to my network – I feel as though I have made a good friend also. You have done a great job in proving that there are real people behind the Linkedin profiles. Thanks again. Sandra DeChant
  4. Bill Berklich Says: October 2nd, 2007 at 12:15 am – Thanks to both you Stan and Sheilah. I enjoyed the Podcast and learned several things along the way. Best to all Bill
  5. Paddy Tarlton Says: October 2nd, 2007 at 1:59 am – We appreciate all of the feedback and support Sheilah provides. She brings a wealth of knowledge of business and Linkedin, and is always willing to share her knowledge. She is an honorable member of our Customer Support team!
  6. Patricia Wah Says: October 2nd, 2007 at 3:31 am – Hi Stan and Sheilah, Thank you very much for sharing all this interesting information. I enjoyed it and as I told Sheilah, it was better than reading a book on tips and best practices for Linkedin users. Thanks again, Patricia
  7. Irene Koehler Says: October 3rd, 2007 at 1:31 am – Stan and Sheilah, Great conversation with many helpful tips and insights! Thanks to you both for taking the time to record and share your thoughts. We all win when knowledgeable folks are so generous, whether through podcasts or online on LI. You are two of the reasons online networking works so well for people who approach it with integrity and an open mind. With appreciation, Irene
  8. Matt Says: October 3rd, 2007 at 5:58 am – Well done, Stan and Sheilah – I enjoyed the podcast. The story about North Carolina was especially delightful to hear. Last week I had our first LinkedIn Group event in Austin, with about 50 in attendance. Great to hear these groups are doing so well globally. Cheers, Matt Genovese Austin, TX http://www.linkedin.com/in/mgenovese
  9. Nancy Says: October 4th, 2007 at 5:44 am – It was a pleasure listening to Sheilah, as always. She has such a nice, down-to-earth way of explaining these important networking tips. Best, Nancy Loderick
  10. Arthur Wright Says: October 5th, 2007 at 8:45 am – Dear Sheilah and Stan, I thank you both for such a wonderful interview. What a great extension of additional information about Linked In. I believe as Shelilah does explain it rather well, that it is true about developing relationships and helping others within the Question and Answer section. As the network grows around the world, we are fortunate to learn from others, and possibly look at our questions a bit differently at times. It’s all part of continued learning and growing in life. It was a delightful and worth it 30 minutes. My best to both, Arthur
  11. Akhtar Khan Says: October 10th, 2007 at 9:04 pm – I was very impressed by the whole interview. Both Stan and Sheilah were excellent. The questions and answers were well directed, and anybody listening to the podcast would gain immensely from the points raised. I congratulate both of you on telling people the benefits of LinkedIn. Like Sheilah, I think I have also gained a lot of friends and opportunities due to the Q&A section. Recently, somebody I was not even connected to, but had seen in the Q&A corridors sent an excellent deal my way. Then we connected, and i thanked him for the introduction.
  12. Joseph Atta-Fynn Says: October 11th, 2007 at 6:37 pm – SheilahThat was wonderful and insightful. I now know the secret of you being at the top. Your thought teaches a novice on LinkedIn how to benefit from their membership. Contacting you on the network is so easy. You were wonderful in your answers, Queen Sheilah. Joseph
  13. Patty Bianco Says: October 15th, 2007 at 12:57 pm – This podcast was very informative for a new networker like myself. I look forward to hearing more podcasts. Great work Stan !

Last two jobs have been due to Linked In, as it helped me connect me with long lost but dear friends from my personal network. In addition, a popular question and answer I asked on Q and A, made me set up my social web site, which is dedicated to funny college incidents and terrible bosses. Thanks a lot for this podcast. Regards, Ajay
  2. Manuel Says: September 4th, 2008 at 11:47 am – It’s great to hear a first hand account of how LinkedIn works in real life. I’ll definitely be using LinkedIn more.

  1. Louise M. Kidney Says: October 16th, 2007 at 2:03 am – Hi Stan, Great podcast. Cynthia de Lorenzi’s comments, insights and determination are an inspriation to us all. Technology has played a vital role in my career over the last 30 years and now to be part of the emergence is fantastic. Social and business networking maybe part of the tipping point to permit individuals to produce not only their work but as James T. Kirk might have said: “To go where no one has gone before”. Thanks again Stan !

  4. Joost Eisink Says: October 17th, 2007 at 9:42 pm – Hi Stan, Brilliant sample! Very informative and a nice insight into Cynthias frame of mind. A confirmation of what some or even many of us had tucked away in the back of our minds. Social networking seems to be in the early adaption phase and is slowly but steadily gaining ground. Thank you for drawing this to my attention!

I must admit I am one of those who still use your original podcast about ‘Using LinkedIn as a Business Tool in their email signature, hoping to mainly catch the attention of those who are sceptical about the use of LinkedIn (The world’s biggest network of experts)Cynthia, Impressive achievements, interesting insights about leading and following, and how with the power of networking, someone like you may ask someone like Stan, who is in Australia if he knows someone in the US for a position you may want to fill. It is truly an honour knowing and being connected to a professional like Stan who knows a wonderful woman like you, just as it is an honour to be connected with someone like you who knows a great man like Vint Cerf. Thanks to LinkedIn for connecting us together with less then 6 Degrees. Ehab Elagaty

Her “Success in the City” is on it’s way to being a success I’m sure. Maybe LinkedIn could have a similar idea for User Experience professionals. And I’m now curious to find out what “twitter” is all about. Look forward to more informative podcasts! Barbara
  23. Alan Rees Says: October 19th, 2007 at 11:26 am – Hi Stan, Enjoyed the interview with Cynthia – thanks for sending a reminder. Social networking works for me – I’ve found people when needed and received answers to questions as required. I’m wondering how language will limit the future of social networking. Maybe a topic for a future interview. Will some future technology allow me to effectively expand my network beyond my english boundaries? Keep up the good work! Alan
  24. Caryl Says: October 19th, 2007 at 12:14 pm – Hi Stan : Another great show… Cynthia you described yourself as a “serial entreprenuer.” After hearing how you leverage social networking and your belief in convergence and the internet as a conduit–it makes sense why you are so successful. The side conversation on learning from the younger Millenial Generation and how to watch them for the next big idea or how they use technology was also interesting. Tweeter?? or Tweater?? seems to be the in-thing to use. And, the comment of MySpace being like an online address book for teenagers makes sense. Like many successful entreprenuers, Cynthia has the uncanny ability to take a simple concept and turn it into money making opportunity. Thanks Cynthia for sharing with us…. And, thanks Stan for another awesome show. Regards, Caryl
  25. Tony Hollingsworth Says: October 22nd, 2007 at 3:16 pm – Stan Thanks for sharing this – that was a great podcast – Cynthia was fascinating to listen to – I find this social networking aspect to the Internet so interesting right now – things seem to be happening so quickly with limitless business applications and plenty of people prepared to share their ideas and knowledge. Well done. Regards, Tony
