Win LinkedIn with Credibility, Search-ability and Connect-ability

By now, most of us have a LinkedIn page. However, many of us don't have a LinkedIn purpose. The primary driver of success for all three of the aforementioned values starts with a professional, content-rich and engaging profile. With updates and new content opportunities happening all the time, Astek wants to help you discover a LinkedIn strategy and offer basic ideas on making it happen.


Our Professional LinkedIn Panel

Rebecca Shaffer, Senior Producer and Creative Content Director for Ragan Communications and Mike Dwyer, board member of Social Media Club, Chicago and executive for Vitamin T – a talent agency for digital creatives – will be on hand to talk through personal LinkedIn strategy. Both use LinkedIn extensively and will bring a variety of perspectives to the session.

With all the great info being thrown around, feel free to bring a computer and follow along with your own profile!


Plan for the Future 

This event will be followed up by an Advanced LinkedIn Strategy session in February. Think-n-Drink attendees will receive 20% off the advanced session.

  • Content Opportunities for a profile
  • Basic content Search Engine Optimization
  • Increase the effectiveness of time spent on LinkedIn
  • Best practice for demonstrating expertise

  • Using LinkedIn for competitive and people research

People with all levels of knowledge are encouraged to attend and offer ideas or questions to the discussion – all while enjoying a glass of wine and good conversation.

What's the Academy Think-n-Drink? 

We love the digital world and sharing our knowledge with others. The Astek Academy is our teaching division that educates clients and increases community knowledge about marketing and technology. 

The Think-n-Drink is our excuse to get people together on the first Tuesday of every month, chat about a topic and consume a little vino while unwinding from a long day of work. Come to learn, network or simply hang out with the fun people at Astek!
