Can LinkedIn help your online business grow?

Absolutely. Just ask Josh Turner.

He knows a lot about how to get the best ROI from LinkedIn, conducting webinars that lead to sales, and inbounding marketing.

As an inbound marketing enthusiast, Turner understands how important a blog is for any online business.

He currently is the founder of three online businesses. Two of them are laser focused on LinkedIn…

1. Linked University – The Definitive Training Program for Building Your Business on LinkedIn

2. Linked Selling – Design and manage strategic marketing campaigns for businesses on LinkedIn

3. Webinarli – Provides outsourced marketing teams who plan and implement lead generating webinars for businesses

In fact, LinkedIn is where I first met Josh Turner a couple of years ago. He started a helpful LinkedIn group I am a member of called the B2B Roundtable.

Recently, I asked Turner some questions on blogging. Anyone who blogs to make money will find his answers interesting.

Let’s begin my B2B Blogging Focus Q&A with Josh Turner… (more…)

That’s a good thing. Because putting some time and attention to your blog’s SEO helps you get more visitors, readers, subscribers and/or customers. (more…)
