How to Double Your LinkedIn Connections in Just 5 Minutes a Day

So, you’ve made your LinkedIn profile. Now what?

We hate to break it to you, but recruiters are not going to magically discover you and send invitations to connect. How, then, do you get their attention on this social network with over 330 million professionals?

Just like how you would never go a few days (or, for some of you, a few hours) without posting on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you can’t go MIA on LinkedIn. Check out this infographic to learn how to double your LinkedIn connections by spending just five minutes a day on the site.

The good news? According to Lab42, only a third of LinkedIn members log in daily. By spending five minutes every day to stay active, you’re already making giant steps toward standing out from the crowd.
