Great post.

A few additional thoughts to share.

1. To get benefit (and I firmly believe it is possible) it takes time. Be prepared to spend a few hours developing a complete profile and a number of hours creating your connections and overall strategy.

2. As a way to jump start one's efforts, a firm that offers great and relatively inexpensive webinars is www.integratedalliances.com

3. Some folks keep their linkedin connections closed. I think that defeats the purpose and I try not to connect with them.

4. You can remove a linkedin connection and that person is not automatically notified.

5. Create well thought out and customizable templates for your invitations and introductions.
