There is quite a bit of buzz about a new feature of LinkedIn that most likely is not even available in your Profile as of yet. It is called LinkedIn Contacts and it is worth taking a strong interest in.
Most informed sales pros get the social selling concept. They are embracing the strategies, tactics and tools that are driving new revenue and new customer acquisition. One of the primary challenges has become managing the activities and information flowing from various platforms and tools that are used in the selling process. There is a lot to manage if you are actively using available tools. LinkedIn Contact is a welcome solution to the challenge by seamlessly integrating your Linkedin Connections, your Outlook contacts or other contact manager, your calendar, your emails and many of your other social activities into your screen whether on your desktop, laptop or mobile device.
There is a lot to get excited about LinkedIn Contacts for. It is being rolled out now, to US customers first, and is expected to be fully deployed in that market by August. The good news with this rollout schedule is you should be able to attend some training and get prepared to use it effectively before it hits your profile.

Connection Management, Engagement and Lead Generation with LinkedIn’s New Contacts Feature.
Join Viveka von Rosen, Author of LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour a Day and Miles Austin on May 7th, 9 AM PST to find out:
- Why LinkedIn’s New Contacts Feature is Such a Big Deal
- What it Can Do For You
- How to Optimally Use It to Build Your Business and Stay Top of Mind
- How to prepare for Contacts before it arrives in your LinkedIn Profile
Part of the power of LinkedIn is the network itself; over 225 million potential connection, leads, and prospects. But those are just numbers. It’s highly unlikely that we can, or even want to do business with 225 million people. Instead we should focus on staying top of mind with the people who already know, like and trust us and are willing to refer us. And that’s where LinkedIn’s new Contacts Feature is so very powerful.
By linking with your existing LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google and other contact bases, Contacts allows us to manage, reference, connect and engage in a much more efficient manner than ever before, while giving us access to all the profoundly integral data on our connections’ profiles, and their interactions with us. Are you as excited about this new evolution in LinkedIn’s Contacts as we are?
Viveka and Miles will share not only the features but how to use this new LinkedIn feature to make a difference in your professional life.
