Summary:Learn how to take ACTIVE steps so that to find clients and partners in LinkedIn, get more translation projects and make business connections with colleagues!
Description
In one hour learn how to open up the line of effective communication with your clients in LinkedIn!

LinkedIn is one of the fastest growing social media platforms today. It can help you when you want to:

- start getting more translation projects;
- build your translation brand;
- promote your translation business;
- build a professional community;
- connect with "decision-makers" in particular companies.

However, I have noticed that many Translators use LinkedIn in a passive way by just creating a profile and waiting for people connect with them.

Today you will learn how to take ACTIVE steps in LinkedIn so that to connect and communicate even with the most "hard-to-reach" prospects and clients!

Thank you and best regards,

Hi Alexandra,

Thank you for your interest in training at the website.

I am afraid the courses are offered for translators from more than 200 countries in the world; which are conducted from 8 am GMT to 8 pm GMT. It is impossible to adopt training start time for all site users. Thus we record online sessions and those translators who cannot attend a live session get unlimited access to the video and handouts after the live session. A certificate of attendance is issued in this case as well.

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen
