LinkedIn is a powerful business tool, and people involved in sales and commercial activities are increasingly using it as a source of new leads, industry connections and ultimately driving sales revenue. Using LinkedIn as part of your approach to sales will help you research contacts, make connections and develop deeper relationships.
This self-paced course will take participants through the process of developing a profile that stands out, building strong and effective contact networks, and engaging with the LinkedIn community for maximum business advantage.
LFS has been designed to improve the LinkedIn Profile and networking ability of GAC sales professionals. The course includes:
- Making a lasting first impression
- Importance of a stand-out LinkedIn Summary
- Identify key elements of the LinkedIn work history
- Navigating the LinkedIn Profile page
- Validating your experience and skills
- Personalising LinkedIn
- Building your network
- Engaging with the LinkedIn Community
The course will be delivered in a self-paced format through GAClearn. Each module is self-paced and can be completed according to the participant’s schedule.
It is the expectation of the GAC Group Management that all GAC employees are provided with sufficient time to complete the core requirements of each course within working hours. In order to establish higher results, participants are encouraged to fully complete all activities, and additional personal time may be required outside of working hours.
“I was already familiar with LinkedIn and its functions, so I did come into the course with negative preconceived ideas – that were all proved wrong. I not only learnt how to maximize my LinkedIn profile and account, but I also gained much more confidence to publish articles and interact within the LinkedIn networks. I am positive that the course has enabled me to utilize all of the LinkedIn functions more effectively and I would recommend the course to my colleagues. It will open their minds to the full benefits of the networking tool, and they will value the learning and advice.”

“I was not a member of LinkedIn prior to commencing this course and did not have much knowledge of its uses. Having followed the steps outlined in the course, I now have a great Profile that I’m very happy with, and which will evolve as I do. LinkedIn has become something I now understand and can use to attract the interests of other professionals who are receptive to learning more about GAC and myself. I can already see that LinkedIn is a great networking tool, and it can be of great benefit to business. I would highly recommend this course to my colleagues, especially those like me, who have had no experience of LinkedIn prior to taking the course.”
