You don’t need to be a rockstar, politician or multi-millionaire to be able to influence and leave a positive impact on people around you.
We all have heard about the famous LinkedIn Top Voices list, but this time it’s not about them - it’s about you. There are way more influencers among us from diverse backgrounds, experiences and reach. We see countless micro-influencers, so to say, who are having superb engagement with their followers, who leave a real impact in their communities, who are proactive on LinkedIn polishing their personal branding, promoting services they love, companies they support and content that inspires them and their connections. Sounds a bit familiar?

1. You want to grow your network
If your direct network is increasing steadily since you first joined the LinkedIn it’s pretty much clear your using LinkedIn for the right cause – connecting with other professionals in the industry to establish new professional relationships. In this way, you expose yourself to new opportunities, fresh ideas and outlook on things, latest industry news, motivational content by others and much much more.
2. You love creating your content and promote others
Not only you observe what’s happening in your network, but you also love to actively share interesting content you come across or create your own LinkedIn posts - blog articles, presentations, videos, photos.
