No offense, but by the looks of you, I can see that you’ve been on Earth for some time now.
As a result, you probably know quite a few people, many of whom possess valuable information, particularly regarding trusted professionals and companies they’ve come to rely on.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily query these people whenever you needed a recommendation to one of these resources?
Indeed it would be, which is why some smart person invented LinkedIn Answers, a free feature built into LinkedIn that helps you ask questions of up to 200 people in your network, all at once.
Think about that. Instead of just Googling “Political Campaign Strategist in Massachusetts” or “Giant Python Attic Removal” (not that I’m suggesting that those two searches are in any way related) and then having to sort through all the responses, why not ask the people you already know who they might recommend?
I’ve used LinkedIn Answers in this way on several occasions for recommendations on, among other things, finding a tech support company, a travel agent familiar with Panama and a graphic artist.
Intrigued? I don’t blame you. For a step by step guide to using LinkedIn Answers, watch my two-minute, 39-second video.
