60 Day LinkedIn Challenge.jpgLinkedIn is a very powerful and underutilized tool in the architectural, engineering, and construction industry. By taking advantage of this free tool, you can grow your business through your engagement on LinkedIn. It’s the professional platform of social media where over 2/3 of online adults spend their time which include your clients and prospects. Research shows LinkedIn is the most used social media platform for business to business interaction. Don’t you want to be part of that conversation?
