The Power of One: One Thing Small Business Owners Can Do To End the Year on a Perfect Note

November 5, 2013


This time of year, every second counts. As you go into pre-holiday turbo drive, worrying about one more thing seems like one too many. But what if that one thing could turn into the biggest opportunity of the year, bring you a new client, or capture the attention of a whole new customer set?

Whether you’re gearing up for Small Business Saturday on November 30th or making one last pre-holiday push, here is our list of the “one thing” small business owners can do on LinkedIn to end the year on the perfect note:

  1. Like one post a day that your network has shared that is relevant to what you do or that inspires you.

  2. Share one article a week about something new in your industry or something that has inspired you to keep pushing forward with your business.

  3. Add one piece of visual content to your profile to showcase what your business has to offer. This can be photos, videos, documents, or presentations.

  4. Connect with one person, whether it’s a customer, vendor, partner, or advisor, or even better – one of each.

  5. Join 1 group relevant to your industry, job function or business goals.

  6. Follow 1 Company Page to stay up-to-date on news and industry trends. This could be a competitor or simply a company you admire.
