By now, just about everyone in the professional world has made a profile on LinkedIn. But are you using that profile in the best way possible to get the most out of it?

It’s about sharing information and becoming a thought leader in your own community.
Here are some tips for using LinkedIn to fully benefit your business and ultimately yourself:
- Groups that are similar to you are your competitors and you won’t get any business by just connecting with them.
