Marketing Tip: 10 Ways to Optimize Your LinkedIN
Visit eWomen Network website
LinkedIN in my opinion is one of the few social media websites every professional should be using. There are many advantages to using LinkedIN. Plus unlike many sites where it can be time-consuming to build up and maintain a popular profile, LinkedIN requires far less effort.

You can obviously use it more frequently if you'd like, but it's not as necessary as it would be for other social media sites.
So once you've signed up and registered your account, here are ten tips we recommend to optimize your account:

Use the Share Button to enhance your Social Media Sites
The 'Share Button' places a button in the footer of an outgoing email that has also been selected to AutoArchive. Although it is only available to Constant Contact customers who subscribe to the Email Archive feature, you will be seeing similar buttons on other email service provider systems shortly.

Once the email has been sent, contacts who click on the Share button will be taken to a shortcut that allows them to easily share the link to your archived email on such social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Digg.

This will help the subscriber who is looking for credible articles to insert the URL link on their social media sites for their readers benefit.

Share ButtonScroll down to the footer of this email and try it now... it's easy!
