Schedule your conference calls in your LinkedIn DMs

You can book your video calls directly through LinkedIn!

Good old LinkedIn have made it even easier to connect with each other – don’t you just love them?

If you want to ‘link out’ with someone (to know what that means you’ll have to head to my blog on my website!) all you have to do is:

  1. Go to their profile
  2. Click ‘message’ (as long as you’re connected to them)
  3. Click on the video icon
  4. Choose whether you want to connect with Blue Jeans, Microsoft Teams or Zoom
  5. Either click ‘start meeting now’
  6. Schedule meeting for the future

It’s SO easy!

However, there is (I’m afraid) a catch. ?. It doesn’t link to a scheduler! So even though there is the facility to book a meeting in advance, it doesn’t link to your diary so, if you’re like me, you’ll probably forget to join!

So, good for a quick, ‘let’s jump on a call now’ kind of thing but maybe we should stick to our usual systems for now.

Ditch the dull keynote speeches in favour of fun-filled, laughter-inducing groups and seminars that get the audience involved from the get-go.

I’m bubbly and vivacious by nature, which you’ll find out in my presentations. 

I strive to appeal to those across sectors and disciplines, whether it be to those in more traditional professional roles, such as senior executive management, or those who are solopreneurs, freelancers or working in creative industries.

I ended up leaving my day job behind and achieved a diploma in Social Media Marketing. I set up Sarah Clay Social to help businesses promote themselves on social media. While using various platforms to promote my business, one stood out – LinkedIn. I seemed to attract new clients without really trying. All without a cheesy sales pitch and just by being myself. 

I was astonished by the success I had with LinkedIn and couldn’t get over how handy my childhood techniques had been. I realised that all the tools I’d learnt as a child were immensely useful! Soon after, I realised that other business owners weren’t using LinkedIn to its fullest potential. 

That’s why I’ve made it my mission to help business owners, just like you, harness the power of LinkedIn and be more successful in business.

Are you ready to leverage LinkedIn’s potential?
