A Secret LinkedIn Tip You Must Start Using

Although we tend to write quite a bit about real estate in our posts, we occasionally offer business tips to our corporate contacts and sphere.

Here’s one that could have a huge impact on your business:



Sure, it’s rather simple, but could be beneficial for both you and your contacts.

Why Recommend Someone?

  • It may help them obtain business or get a job.
  • It helps build their profile.
  • The recommendation gets announced to their contacts.
  • A way to show appreciation to someone that has been good to you.
  • It will make their day and they will remember you for it.

Who should You Recommend?

  • Former Colleagues or Co-workers.
  • Affiliates, in our case inspectors, lenders and title companies.
  • Current or past clients.
  • Fellow board members or people that network with you.
  • Someone with less than 3 recommendations, as this may significantly build their LI profile.

How Do You Do This?

On Linked In, there is a function that allows you to recommend one of your contacts. It is on the right hand side of your contact’s main page. Here’s a snapshot of Amy’s personal page to show you:

All you have to do is click on the “recommend” link as shown above and you can write a recommendation for someone in about 2 minutes, it’s that easy and the impact can be huge.

So, go log into your LinkedIn account, look through your contacts, and recommend a few of them. They will be notified that you did this as well, so don’t be surprised if you get a thank you phone call or lunch invitation from a very grateful contact.

We hope you find this little tip to be helpful, and look forward to sharing more tips with you in the future.
