LinkedIn is a powerful resource for connecting with others in your industry. It provides a forum to share expertise and experience, as well as a good place to learn from other experts in your industry. For HVAC and other service contractors, there are a number of active groups you can easily join and get involved with.
LinkedIn groups help you quickly discover what other professionals in your industries are discussing. They also give you an opportunity to listen in to the discussion as well as have an active voice in the conversation. You also get a vote on what is useful to you by ‘liking’ posts and comments.
