JD Gershbein: Getting Value Out of LinkedIn

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and JD Gershbein discuss:

  • The evolution of LinkedIn and why it is prevalent and important. 
  • Being findable on LinkedIn. 
  • How LinkedIn supports the practice of law. 
  • Building an outcome-directed LinkedIn profile. 


Key Takeaways:

  • You need to have an identity in the business universe. LinkedIn allows you to stand out and have a clear identity for others. 
  • Your profile page can be one of your greatest assets in business. 
  • There are many ways you can get started on LinkedIn that won’t take hours each week but will allow you to get out educational content that is relevant and valuable. 
  • If your profile is not set up correctly, it will lead to lost opportunities. Attend to it, do a content audit of your page, and make sure that your unique value is articulated. 


“LinkedIn has arrived at a point where we are reliant on it. We are dependent on it. Not just for information or to keep a sense of connectedness with people, but to really show who we are to peers, to clients, to colleagues, and to those who would refer or introduce us.” —  JD Gershbein
