You can decide to connect with others in your field. For instance if you are in the wedding industry you can find a number of groups to join.
Book authors can also connect with those in their area of expertise.
With so many social media outlets you have to decide which one fits your needs best.
That being said you need to make sure you have a professional profile on LinkedIn.
You never know who may search for you and having this profile will enable them to make a request to connect with you and hopefully grow you community.
Growing your community means more exposure.
One of the features of LinkedIn that helps with exposure is the fact that you can share updates such as blog posts. It’s another way to link back to your site.
