LinkedIn may not be as “fun” as Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook. You don’t poll your audience on how delicious your lunch is, plan your dream home or scroll through videos of adorable puppies (if your Facebook feed is anything like mine). But LinkedIn is incredibly valuable to your professional growth, credibility and relationships.
Anyone professional will tell you that networking is key for growth and success in any industry, but the power lies in building relationships which go beyond the exchange of business cards. If approached strategically and accompanied by follow ups, networking is a vital and powerful tool that connects potential business partners.
We had a wonderful time last week with those of you who were able to attend our third panel event of the series, ‘Double Tap The Keg.’ This month’s theme was centered on the psychology of marketing with delicious beer sponsored by Elysian Brewery in conjunction with Eagle Rock Distribution. A special thanks goes to our four inspiring panelists: Aaron Trubic from Proper Villains, Elle Hague from Wildcat Echo, Nicola Smith from Rebel & Reason, and last but not least, Morgan Ward from Emory University.
If you weren’t able to make it to our Double Tap the Keg event earlier this week, this post is will help minimize your FOMO and fill you in on the most important lessons learned that night. If only we could transport Reformation beer (Cadence and Union were delicious) and gusto! tasty sweet potato chips for you to enjoy while reading this post, you could close your eyes and pretend that you’re in our rustic-chic office surrounded by some of the coolest, most successful influencers in Atlanta!
