Does your Linkedin profile work for you?

Linkedin, or sometimes called your online resume is a professional network built around one's employment capabilities.
Here are a few quick tips to share that can increase the value of your Linkedin profile.

Write to be Read- Make sure people can tell what you do and the value in what you do.

Make your job descriptions work in two ways- Be clear that you are happily employed, and second allow people to be able to see you working on their issues.

Recommendations are your Friends- Always ask for referrals and be willing to give them in return.

Connection Strategies- Be sure to be friends with people you know personally and also those in your industry.

Some last thoughts, check your contact settings, be explicit who you want to connect with. Consider the photo you upload, is it business like? Most important photo tip- use a current photo. Update your profile at least every three months.

For help in this remember TNT Marketing has social media concierge services. For additional information

As the Holiday's are right on our back door one thinks about traditions. As we get older and have our own lives and get married we continue and/or start new traditions, this is very true in our home this year.. This is our third Holiday season together, second as husband and wife with merged families and friends. This year we will be cooking in our new home and having family and friends over. Both my husband and I enjoy hosting the get together.
Coming from a place of two only children we have family traditions to continue and some small changes to create our own.
My husband is a Firefighter/EMT so being flexible is something we are used to. We enjoy our family and also the family that the Fire life creates so our home is open to all on any given day, especially holidays, no one we know will be alone on a holiday.
As I am doing this post the ideas of our menu are running through my mind... Fried turkey, mac and cheese, green beans, stuffing, corn, potatoes, deviled eggs and of course several dessert items- pumpkin pie, Carmel pie, cream cheese Reese bars.

My wish for anyone who sees this blog post is for everyone to have a happy holiday filled with friends, family, love, laughter and good food.

Light a special candle for those loved ones who can't join us in person who have passed.

Bring peace with you to spread to everyone you are with.

Happy Thanksgiving!

4 Key Marketing Strategies

Key Marketing strategies to assist you in 2014 and beyond.

 Be Purposeful- In order to establish yourself as a thought leader it is crucial for you to be purposeful in your strategy. Don't do something just to check a box.
Before you decide to jump in feet first... take a step back and evaluate the following....

Does the initiative help establish credibility for your brand?
Will you be reaching influencers and decision makers?
How will you measure this success?

New Tactics: Make them happen quickly- To begin a new marketing strategy you and your team must act quickly and on an aggressive timeline.

Use trail and error then scale- When executing new initiatives, embrace the process of trial and error. Carefully watch the initiatives and if it works double down. if it doesn't work, tweek it, try again and if this time it is not a success drop it.

Improve what is working- This may seem like a no brainer and very obvious. It's easy to say don't fix what isn't broken but it is vital to continue to improve every line of your marketing strategy.
