There is Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, but the best platform for acquiring connections is LinkedIn.There are many benefits from having many strong business connections. Here are 5 ways your LinkedIn connections can benefit you.
You LinkedIn connections are great for networking. In business, many people find new opportunities through meeting new people. They could go to business events or meet people during business trips. But in 21st Century, as social media platforms have grown massively, it’s ideal to network online.
Using your LinkedIn connections, you can find new people who may be interested in the services you have on offer. They could recommend you to a friend, they could be that million-pound contract. Who knows? The best way to make that money is to network and meet people online with your sought-after LinkedIn connections.
Having good LinkedIn connections is good for recommendations too. These are good for finding out new business opportunities through the people you’re connected with. So, if you’re connected to someone highly successful, is a good businessperson, but there’s no business between you, they could recommend you to someone they know. Sometimes it’s who you know in business that leads to success.

Helps Boost Views
The more connections you have on LinkedIn, the likely you’ll be noticed. It’s like a popularity contest sometimes. If you have 500 connections and you post a professionally-written blog, there’s a good chance it’ll get liked and shared and then spread across the social media platform. If you only a have, say, 20 connections, it’ll still get likes and shares, but there’s less of a chance of it spreading and getting you noticed.
Your LinkedIn connections are an excellent source of business advice. No matter how successful you are or how much of an expert you may be, you can still take on board advice from other professional businesspeople.
Business advice shouldn’t be seen as patronising, but neither should it be dismissed so readily. It’s just there to help. It comes from other people’s experiences which you may not have experienced, which is what makes it so valuable. Having plenty of LinkedIn connections with a variety of professionals and experts increases the amount of advice you could receive.
