You need to be different to stand out on LinkedIn. Here's a totally different way to use LinkedIn that will blow people away.

How does it feel when you log into LinkedIn and your inbox is full of solicitations? LinkedIn is turning into a spammy website and its time to change your approach.

Instead of selling to your LinkedIn connections, send them referrals. It's "givers gain" like they do at BNI meetings. Focus on sending business to your network and they will return the favor.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
