Linkedin is the social network specifically for businesses and business people, it boasts over 575,000,000 registered members and provides a professional platform for those who want to promote themselves, to other businesses (B2B) and a wealth of knowledge, training and job opportunities. Becoming a Lion on Linkedin is one way of steadily growing your network of connections up to the maximum of 30,000. Lion or L.I.O.N. is an acronym that stands for ‘Linked In Open Networker, and this stands for those who are willing to network opening with other potential connections, even though they may have never met, nor done business together. You are much more less likely to have your account suspended or even banned by connecting to such people as they are happy to accept your connection request.
You can search for people using the term Lion or L.I.O.N. and then request a connection. Note that you should limit the number of connections you request each day and periodically go through your connection requests and delete the outstanding ones, (any over 2 weeks old and haven’t been responded to.) What you can also do is add the words ‘Lion’ and ‘L.I.O.N.’ to your profile, this way people who are also using this method can find you and connect.
The simple factor of becoming a lion on LinkedIn is to further your reach, and expand your overall presence on this professional network, whether you are wanting to promote your company, its goods or services or simply to make key connections yourself to further or change your career.
One important note is to remember to respect others, avoid sending spam and adhere to Linkedin’s terms and conditions of usage when growing your Linkedin network
