    Hi Erik, I’m looking fowrard to some tutorials on using LinkedIn. I’m having a hard time figuring out how to add contacts in an easy manner. Seems very complex and I’m a bit lost. I’m loving and appreciating all the training you’ve been providing! Aloha, E.

      Hi Desak – the great thing about LinkedIn is that they will walk you through the best ways of adding contacts. You can start by adding your email list to determine who is already on LinkedIn who you know. Then, the more people you know, the easier new contacts will be to add to your profile.
