LinkedIn is a fantastic platform for networking and I believe that everybody with a business or service to offer should set up a profile on LinkedIn. Even if you find you are too busy with the rest of your social marketing campaign to use LinkedIn for networking you should definitely make time to create a free profile.
LinkedIn is used by businesses and individuals across all industries but its popularity within the creative industry is growing rapidly. Through creating connections (like friends and followers on Twitter and Facebook) you can network and keep up to date with the latest craft industry news. Your Linkedin profile works as an online CV and can be a great place to flex your muscles as an expert in your particular area.
