Something so easy that you can do on LinkedIn on your commute home or when you have a few extra minutes to bolster your LinkedIn network is to peruse the connections of your close contacts on LinkedIn.

Why? Because you may have forgotten to add certain important connections to your LinkedIn network who are connected to people you know well. By going through the connections of these close contacts you will likely be able to add at least 5 to 10 new connections to your professional network, which is just smart online networking.

For those of you who manage LinkedIn company pages, there is unfortunately no way to see your actual company followers, but you can view who likes each post and then connect with individuals from there (just please don’t spam people).

Try it and let me know how it goes!
