Instructor Deb Dib, William, and CTL CEO Marie Zimenoff have been hard at work updating the program so you'll have the latest on LinkedIn's new interface and much more.

In fact, this innovative certification gives you everything you need to help your clients not only build stellar branded LinkedIn profiles, but use LinkedIn to expand their thought-leadership, build and nurture their network, and do their job better.

Bring your clients out of the dark!

While all professionals need to know how to integrate LinkedIn into a social media and connection strategy that will rocket them towards their goals, most don't.

Imagine how you and your clients will stand out with a truly branded profile! Imagine how eager clients will be to engage with you, a trusted expert certified in 3D branding LinkedIn profiles who digs deep enough to truly engage a reader and create a connection.

Class starts May 8 with pre-work, EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS MAY 5.

You'll gain context, real-world strategies, and new tools to help your clients craft an efficient, integrated social media strategy built around the differentiation, power and value of their personal brand.

We integrate secrets and tips for maximizing LinkedIn, sharing advice you won't find elsewhere. And we update the program annually to reflect the ever-changing LinkedIn landscape.

The result...

Your clients gain competitive advantage and increase their influence and confidence. They expand their brand community. They increase their performance and reach their goals.

And so do you!
