With 80% of their enquiries coming from LinkedIn, the platform clearly works when you get the approach right. However, this wasn’t an overnight success and has taken years of effort to get to the point where LinkedIn is generating so much business for them.

Both Tim and Russ gave away some excellent advice and tips on how to get the most from LinkedIn, what content works, and how to build your network to a point where it’s equally as successful.

Thanks so much to Tim and Russ for making the time to chat – was a really enjoyable episode and I hope you all find it useful!

  • What Avery & Brown is all about
