For the longest time, I avoided LinkedIn. Invitations to join came, and I ignored them. I wasn’t convinced it was a worthwhile site.
What would I get from joining? Would it help my career in any way? Would it connect me to the right people? Or would it be nothing but a colossal waste of time?
Only recently did I decide to plug in and see what happens. And while I haven’t secured any jobs from LinkedIn, I’m starting to see its merit as a professional networking site.
For me, the best part about LinkedIn are the groups. I’ve joined a number of writing groups including Ghostwriters Worldwide and I’m enjoying taking part in some of the discussions. In addition to learning how others manage the business of writing, I get to share my own expertise.
Being active in a LinkedIn ghostwriting group is a great way to discover tips and tricks of the trade, see what other ghosts struggle with, and offer a piece of advice now and then.
Based on my limited but growing experience with LinkedIn, I’d say that yes, it can be a useful site for ghostwriters, especially as a means to connect with others and share our knowledge.
For a profession as isolated as ghostwriting, being part of a professional network can help all of us grow by leaps and bounds.
