With 590million members on LinkedIn sometimes social media can seem being a little bit daunting and you don’t know where to start. This is where the power of your micro network can really come to the forefront in helping you understand where the next opportunity may be.

What do I mean by the micronetwork? This is your network which will be unique to you, based on you school, university, colleges – even your previous employer. You can use LinkedIn to track your micro network and to work out where your next referral for you might be, for example.

Think about your University and have you connected with everyone you went to University with, at least those that you would want to connect with. That said, LinkedIn data shows using your college, even those people who you were not at college with at the same time as you, they show that this is a great way to get a referral in.

So, this is where you would search for example, I will use LinkedIn to filter out anybody that went to Exeter University in the UK and within my network there are around 100,000 people. I can then start to narrow this down to be relevant to job title, role, length of time in role, whatever you want, if you are you are Sales Navigator, you can take this even further with the detail. You can take this one step further if you search on previous employer on linkedin.com. This means you can then find your people that used to work in your organisation and understand where they have moved onto so same principle applies; you might connect with them you might or contact them, even if you don’t know them. If you work in a similar type role in could well be, we don’t know each other, however could you introduce me to or would you be comfortable in helping me find out who is the head of sales, head of marketing, head of legal, whatever the job title might be that you’re looking for.  This could be nice route into helping unlock a referral rather than approaching outright cold.

The great thing is that LinkedIn also allows you to set up email alerts to 10 so that you can track this in almost real time and react accordingly.  To understand how you can do that, watch this short video.

Finally, this is the first post that I have dictated using Microsoft Word, as you can see below, there is a little bit of work to be done. Maybe it’s because this is the first time, I have done this, so it needs to learn and understand my voice and language, notwithstanding I will have a stinking cold!
