How To Get the Most Out of LinkedIn

How To Get the Most Out of LinkedIn

Since its launch 12 years ago, LinkedIn has grown from a niche job board to the most powerful professional social network. With over 380 million users, the platform offers a wealth of possibilities…if you know how to use it properly. I sat down with Keith Daw, LinkedIn expert with McDonell Consulting & Development. Keith has spend more time exploring LinkedIn’s ins-and-outs than he cares to remember and has taught hundreds of classes on the platform (the next one being on Nov. 13th). We talked about how to best present yourself on the platform (hint: you’re probably doing it wrong) and how to leverage connections to find new business or forge new partnerships. You can listen to both parts of our conversation below.   Written by Greg Abel – Greg Abel is president of Baltimore-based Abel Communications.... read more

How Many PR Pros Does It Take to Secure a TV Segment?

How Many PR Pros Does It Take to Secure a TV Segment?

Ok, so maybe that joke didn’t make the cut. But there are many other hilarious gems in the UnitedHealthcare “Little Book Big Laughs” joke book. The jokes are submitted by children from around the country. UnitedHealthcare compiles them into joke and riddle books that then benefit medical grants for needy kids. Since 2007, UnitedHealthcare has awarded 10,000 grants valued at over $29 million. Grants are typically used to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids. Unfortunately, many people don’t know these grants exist. So UnitedHealthcare could spread the word and promote the book, we helped book a segment on WBAL-TV with local 8th grader Christina Clopein. Christina is one of the many kids whose jokes are included in the book. You can see Christina deliver some of her best material in the clip below. To help needy kids get the medical treatment the need, you can buy either the Riddle Book or the Knock-Knock Book.   Written by Courtney Benhoff – Courtney is an account manager at Abel Communications.
