A quick question for you:

  • How much of your time and money with LinkedIn Marketing is actually generating benefits for your business?
  • Is it really worth your endless time promoting your LinkedIn account when you know you do not even own it?
  • Would you better off pivoting your marketing resources to other areas?

Many new business owners, entrepreneurs and marketers naively think the more noise they publish on LinkedIn, the more likely potential customers will like their brands and buy.
