BOHEMIA, N.Y., Aug. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Weather you have hundreds of connections, a killer profile and tons of recommendations or you are someone just starting out, making the most of LinkedIn can seem kind of tricky.
There are some simple ticks you can use to help you easily use LinkedIn to its fullest potential.
1. Import your email contacts.
Chances are you're already connected with those you deal with on a regular basis making this feature is a great way to connect with those who may have overlooked or lost contact with.
2. Take advantage of groups.
Joining groups of users with similar experiences, jobs and interests is a great way to connect with new resources. Being a member of the same group also gives you the ability to bypass the need to be a first-degree connection in order to message another user.
3. Show your work samples.
LinkedIn allows you to add a variety of media such as videos, images, documents, links, and presentations enabling you to showcase different projects you've worked on.
4. Request to connect through search instead of the profile button.
When you send connection requests through the Connect button on someone's profile, you're prompted to prove that you know them personally. To skip this step, use the Connect button next to her name under the search option to immediately send the invitation.
Add keywords to various sections of your profile such as your headline or in your summary to come up more relevant for searches using those key terms.

"With over 300 million users, LinkedIn is one of the most powerful social networks that are often underutilized.
