“What I discovered and what you want to do with your LinkedIn profile if you’re a real estate investor, is really flip the script, instead of having a LinkedIn profile that reads like a resume all about you. It needs to be all about how you can help this target audience solve a problem or get a benefit they want. It needs to be all about how you can help this target audience solve a problem or get a benefit they want.” – John Nemo
“What I suggest is, once you’ve got this profile client-facing, and it’s all about what I do, who I serve, what makes me unique, different, better, instead of a resume. And now I suggest you go out, use LinkedIn search, like Google B2B for leads, you find those exact people that you’ve tailored your profile to talk to, and invite them to connect, and then use one on one messaging.” – John Nemo
“Content is currency. You have to have some sort of content to show them you’re legitimate; you’re an authority, you get people results, you have testimonials, not sales, marketing stuff. But storytelling case study. And again, hyper niche, the riches are in the niches.” – John Nemo
“Just make it simple, go to people you’ve already had success with, and just sell them the same thing.” – John Nemo
“Reverse engineer, that when you go prospecting on LinkedIn, make your profile all about those people, how you help them, make that little piece of content, a case study, just take one client that you’ve had success with, share that story, then you’re going to open up these opportunities, and people are going to go, boy, this really makes sense.” – John Nemo
“It’s nice to have consistent content to have credibility and authority and have a brand. And that’s great. But if you’re crunched for time, you’re going to be way more successful targeting people one on one, having just enough content to kind of move that relationship forward. And then closing deals.” – John Nemo
