    Small Talk Is the Single Most Important Communication Skill You Can Develop     Carol Fleming wants to show you that small talk is not as “small” as you might think. It's the foundation of every relationship, professional and personal. It is the sound of people reaching out to each other, searching for similarities, shared interests, goodwill, connections, and friendship. And it's something we all do every day with people we know. It's just the one little bit about strangers that throws some people off. Graceful social conversation can be learned, even by those requiring the smallest of baby steps.Fleming covers the inner and outer aspects—from the right attitude to how to dress, move around, and introduce yourself. Most importantly, she lays out a series of simple, memorable conversational strategies that make it easy to go from “Nice weather we're having” to a genuine, rewarding give-and-take. But she won't tell you what to say. Believe it or not, you already have what you need inside you. She merely provides the keys to unlock it. Small talk is the language of welcome, the extension of friendliness, the gracious acknowledgment of others, the kindly exchange of introductions and smiles, and the creation of a safe, courteous social space—and this is what has you terrified? After you read this book, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.

    LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network platform. With over 500 million professionally-connected members, this is a giant opportunity for your Business-to-Business (B2B) marketing. This book guides you on how to use LinkedIn B2B marketing to generate qualified prospects and obtain clients.
    
     
    To appreciate what awaits you should you take up LinkedIn advertising, this guide begins by providing you with proven benefits of LinkedIn advertising so that you may know your gains well in advance.
    
     
    While LinkedIn has been used successfully by many companies to market their businesses, it is not a one-platform-fits-all kind of basket. There are those types of business that have a higher potential to gain from the uniqueness of LinkedIn platform and there are those that have a lower potential of deriving the same gain. This simply means that LinkedIn must be evaluated on a case-to-case basis. In this guide, you will find valuable criteria that will enable you to determine whether LinkedIn suits your marketing needs or not so that you do not risk your resources against potentially low ROI (return on investment).
    
     
    Professionals like belonging to clubs. Online, groups are the equivalent of professional clubs. Thus, you need to know how to use LinkedIn groups to your marketing advantage. This guide will show you how you can leverage the power of groups to gain a competitive edge in your niche.
    
     
    LinkedIn Ads are quite unique from other forms of online Ads. This means that you have to give them special attention by learning how to effectively use them for maximum results. We are going to show you how to use the various types of LinkedIn Ads to increase your income flow.
    
     
    What is the benefit of having a large following without an impact on your revenue? None! Most enterprises make the mistake of working so hard to acquire a huge following on LinkedIn without knowing how to financially gain from this following. We provide you with practical approaches to grow and monetize your LinkedIn following so that you can increase your income.
    
     
    Finally, there is a limit to how much you can do as an individual. Even if you employ a dozen more people to work specifically on your LinkedIn account, you cannot completely tap into the huge potential base of over 500 million people.  This is where automation comes in handy. Technologies exist that can help you to effortlessly automate your LinkedIn income. This guide provides you with information on how you can automate your LinkedIn income and the specific tools you require in order to harness great success.
