Are We LinkedIn?

by Madalyn Sklar



When we talk about the top social network sites that are a must for you to be on it's important to include LinkedIn. Because it's a professional networking site, there are incredibly great contacts for you there if you take the time to work it. Wouldn't you like to tap into the over 50 million professionals who use LinkedIn to exchange information, ideas and opportunities? I feel it's not being utilized by most musicians and should be quickly added to your mix and updated regularly.

One of my favorite features is "recommendations" where people you know can leave a testimonial about you and your work. Over time I have accumulated some amazing recommendations from people I know, love and respect.

Here is my latest:

“Madalyn has been our biggest resource for help both in career coaching and through GoGirlsMusic, giving us a platform for our music. Madalyn is the utmost professional, and her experience and knowledge is second to none. Here generosity and kindness towards us, our goals, our music, our business has been invaluable. Madalyn taught us how to fish, and because of it we now eat. You will not find someone more qualified or dedicated. Madalyn our deepest gratitude.” September 22, 2009

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

This is truly what social networks are about, connecting and sharing. Whether you are searching for work or wanting to reach and connect with people who can help you in the music business, this is the place to be. If you are not LinkedIn yet, get moving. It's well worth the time to set up. If you have a LinkedIn profile, be sure to review it from time to time, tweaking it and keeping it fresh.
