Flipping America 289, A Linked-In Strategy, with Italina Kirkness

podcast 289 Italina Kirkness and LinkedIn


Today’s show is for anyone who is looking for a social media strategy. We all know we need to have a presence, but some of us (I’m looking at you baby boomers out there) don’t have a natural instinct for or even interest in social media. For me, I’m just not that interested in what my friends are having for summer or where they are currently on vacation – letting the whole world know they are out of the country and no one is at home guarding their stuff. So for those of us who know we need something but don’t want to become experts and definitely don’t want to have to learn multiple implementations, we need HELP. Help is coming to you today from our guest, Italina Kirkness. She will be along in just a minute to talk about your social media strategy.

Biggest mistakes we make with social media:

  1. Ignoring it.
  2. Connecting and then not doing anything else. 

Key question: “What made you want to connect?”
