Businesses get LinkedIn

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) –  Some Region 8 business owners got "Linked In" Thursday.

LinkedIn is a relatively new way of linking businesses with their customers.

A seminar was held at the ASU Small Business and Technology Center to help area residents navigate the system and use it to their advantage.

Herb Lawrence, who led the seminar, said, "We put this workshop together especially for a lot of our connections.  What do you need to do tweak your site out…and how to make those valuable connections that will actually put money in your cash register."

Lawrence says LinkedIn is strictly for business professionals connecting with other professionals to improve their bottom line.

More than 80 million people use LinkedIn worldwide.
