Things you will learn in this episode:

* On LinkedIn, you can “follow” or “connect” with someone. When you “follow” them, it’s like following someone on Twitter or Instagram — you only receive their content. “Connecting” means you can message back and forth, see who’s in their network, and so on. A connection is a deeper relationship with someone while following a person is like watching them on a stage. — Bob Woods

* LinkedIn has a new feature and it’s an amazing one! In the search filters, you can choose “followers of” along with the industry, location, title, etc. This is a powerful way to identify people who follow an influencer who attracts your ideal audience. Simply start a conversation around other content that the influencer has shared and a natural rapport-building moment is born. — Brynne Tillman
