Learning to network

Who says “Cheaters never prosper”?

Filed under: LinkedIn, Manage my network — Arthur M. Gallagher @ 6:00 pm

Having learned plenty from LinkedIn related forums and groups, I thought I would investigate those more aligned to Xing (ex-OpenBC). As in all research this leads to many more page-impressions than to revelations, but it was worthwhile to come across the following gem.

I have come across many lists of networking tips, but this one is comprehensive and I relate to almost everything in it. Sacred Cow Dung: CHEATER’S GUIDE TO LINKEDIN v 0.1. Thanks to Christian Mayaud for sharing these with us (and to Vincent Wright for bringing it to my attention).

PS: I am still wavering over “open networking” (as opposed to my currently chosen path of quality connections only”) but perhaps I will reconsider as I try to use my connections for more specific purposes.

  1. This looks like great stuff. I’ll be checking out each link and want to say that I appreciate your willingness and example of sharing knowledge. I hope you’ll find much the same value at my blog site; http://www.thehopestone.blogspot.com, as time goes on. ~Dwayne in the States

  2. I am a big fan of XING (but also a member of LinkedIn). Looking forward to what you think about XING.
