Who wants to host a “LinkedIn The Clubhouse Day” during our UK 2013 Tour?

Golf & LinkedIn go hand in hand, both being perfect for #networking.

But are golfers making the most of the opportunity? It seems not.

I think we could all do with a helping hand when it comes to improving our social media efforts.

The problem is, we don’t like to admit that we’re behind the times.

That’s where businesses like BrandYouBrilliant come into their own.

Bringing networking back to the clubhouse

Getting on in business is often about who you know, your contacts, your network.

The golf course is, has been and always will be a place for strengthening that network and cementing those deals.

However, more and more often, a large percentage of any deal’s been put to bed long before the golf bag’s out the back of the Range Rover.

And even more typically, the nitty gritty’s been discussed on social media networking sites, LinkedIn being the weapon of choice for the golfing niche.

This year’s UK Tour is all about bringing networking back to the clubhouse, even if it’s just for a one day event, an event that you can host.

It’s perfect for those missing out on the buzz that used to fill the 19th, but is now flitting through cyberspace, instead.

Think of LinkedIn as an extension of your clubhouse

On LinkedIn, you’ve got the perfect environment to then go on and strengthen new and existing business network connections.

However, so few golfers in business know how to make the most of this terrific resource that’s at their disposal, it genuinely is an opportunity going begging.

What’s more, LinkedIn doesn’t cost a bean to join.  And the golfing fraternity does like to keep the wheels greased with info rather than that dirty word, cash.

However, time is money and you’ll want to make the most of every minute you spend growing your business network through the groups. communities and personal connections you make on LinkedIn.

BrandYouBrilliant can show you the nuances, the little tricks and, more importantly than anything, help you look like a seasoned pro on the social media circuit, irrespective of what you play off on the course.

It’s not difficult to get your head around, this one.

The Golf Street Journal is a brand new social media concept, their tagline: “fore golfers, by golfers”. The two owners think there’s a lot of mileage in getting a lot of golfers under one onlione roof where they can network, pitch, be pitched at and probably take advantage of the on-site advertising, which is kept in-house for the members, by the members. Golf is a cash-rich community and, yes, everyone likes to be dealing within the appropriate circles.  My link can get you direct access to those normally hallowed networks on the new site, with full permission from the owners to invite new members with the sole purpose of inviting new members.

Why would you do this?

TGSJ is a brilliant concept.  The two guys running it believe in it that much that they are paying members $2.50/pop to refer other members.

If you’re good at marketing and have access to sport, especially golf or football (show me a footballer that won’t eventually golf and I’ll show you a Scot that doesn’t drink) or can access the hgher-level management within your corporation, marketing this network will be a doddle.

It’s free to join, create your profile, get your referral link, start hitting the three niches I’ve just pointed out and you’re away. No restrictions to the medium – I’m on fb, twitter and linkedin but my reach is not huge.  For someone with loads of followers, they could even be in with a shout of the big prize the guys are utting up in the Hurricane Promo Party group -0 you haave to check that out when you get inside, honestly.  Unreal!

Once you’ve signed up under my link (I’ll know, coz I get a report), come find me [Zebedeerox] and say hi and I’ll show you the ropes.

If I’m offline, there’s a post on the blog attched to this one and in the 19th hole On THE SITE with a clear sign-post about which group to join for the best advice.

There is no charge, at any stage, to sign up, join groups, create a profile. Anywhere.

See you on the inside.
