The LinkedIn MAGNET Method
How to find your audience, build authentic relationships and connect with your ideal clients,
without being spammy.
Are you ready to grow your business using LinkedIn?
Would that help you grow your business?
Your ideal clients connect to ask how to work with you
Experts ask if they can refer their clients to you
Industry influencers invite you on their podcasts and webinars
Journalists ask if they can interview you
Stop chasing leads, making cold calls, going to networking events.
The never-ending hunt for the next client is exhausting. It can keep you in a scarcity mindset that leaks into your interactions and makes you sound desperate. Even at an unconscious level for both you and your prospect, it can be an invisible barrier that stops you from closing business. Not to mention it can be depressing and stressful.
Instead, you can adopt an approach that will inspire and energize YOU. You can share your expertise and wisdom in a spirit of abundance and attract your ideal prospects like a MAGNET.
Let's create a thriving online space for your business, where your prospects can discover you and be excited to engage with you.
Because success is NOT about finding opportunities;
it's about making sure they FIND YOU.
Together, we can make this is a center for engagement and communication for you to share your expertise and your message with clients, prospects and the global community.
LinkedIn is your window onto the world.
The next post you read could lead you to unexpected discoveries, new knowledge or your next business partner. Whether you are searching for a specific person or let serendipity lead your way, opportunities are endless for exploring new perspectives, and for building relationships that lead to prospects and clients.
LinkedIn is also a window for others into YOUR world.
Let them understand how you can help them, explore what you have to offer, learn about your values and get to know like and trust you. And then give them a way to knock on your door!
When you meet someone in person and connect with them on LinkedIn, you establish an initial contact that you will build on over time. You nurture that relationship through your content and mutual engagement until they are ready to reach out to you for a call.
When you connect with someone online, through content or after an online event, they become part of your network and begin to see your content. As the relationship grows, you deepen the connection by meeting in person or via zoom.
Through this virtuous circle, your authority and influence grow with each post, each interaction and each connection. Exponentially!
Let's make LinkedIn a hub of communication and engagement for your business.
This method is for you if you:
Are an entrepreneur, a coach or an author with a mission to help others
Have an important message to share with the world
Feel you're the best-kept secret in your industry
Are working alone or have a very small team
Want to stay away from cold-calling strangers
Want to have authentic conversations with people you can help
When YOUR prospects see you on LinkedIn...
...what will they find?
An outdated, incomplete and vague profile with nothing to make them want to stay?
An attractive profile that draws them in, makes them stay, read and want to meet you?
What you will gain when you implement the MAGNET Method
Instead of having to sell yourself...
...you will attract your ideal clients to you like a MAGNET.
Instead of having to chase leads...
...your prospects will seek you out and approach you, ready to buy.
Instead of being a best kept secret...
...you will have a well-established and recognized brand.
You will show up as your authentic self, with integrity, and fully aligned with your values. You will enter conversations with your best prospects, naturally, without having to sell or self-promote.
By the time you get on a call, your prospects will already know, like and trust you so they will easily convert into clients in your programs.
You will shift from seeing LinkedIn as a to-do on your marketing task list, to a new way of interacting with your audience and the world in a natural, organic way that lets you focus on your favorite topic: how you can help others.
Starting in a few weeks, with the Build Your MAGNET method and strategies, results will flow. Your LinkedIn presence will grow and build on itself over time to yield exponential results. The snowball effect of LinkedIn is powerful and really fun!
How the MAGNET Method works:
You create a magnetic profile that positions you as an authority and showcases who you are and how you can help them. Your profile will draw them in to want to learn more and reach out to you.
You craft a proven strategy with the different types of posts and articles you need to be sharing on LinkedIn to create a body of content that magnetically draws in your best prospects. You will be sought after by influencers and referrers.
You build a simple process you can implement on a weekly basis to consistently bring in qualified leads. You create the habits you need to begin effortlessly bringing in clients. Your ideal customers will already know, like and trust you by the time the call starts.
What clients say:
I chose to take this program because I had been stymied by the LinkedIn platform and how to use it in my coaching business. I needed to know how to efficiently and effectively network online.
I like the way Sophie communicates with people and goes over-and-above to connect with and help others. I thought, if anyone can help me with LinkedIn, it's Sophie.
After seeing the program web page, I sensed it was the right choice because it offered support led by an expert with great people skills.
I’m delighted to say, my choice was right on. The program is very hands-on from start to finish. I was amazed at the professional relationships one can develop online not only for one’s own enrichment but for the enrichment of others too.
It’s great to not only learn how to follow companies and thought leaders, and how to participate in group discussions, but to actually do it on a regular basis to build relationships, understand trends, and participate in meaningful conversations.
I’m very pleased to have taken The LinkedIn MAGNET Method program. It was worth the investment, and it has given me wings to expand my reach in my coaching practice. I've joined organizations, connected with many new people, renewed connections from the past and enjoyed contributing to conversations that were of interest to me. I am pleased with my new-found ease using LinkedIn efficiently and effectively.
Fran B, Life Coach
I had done some very detailed & lengthy messaging and positioning work with a coach, as well as an extensive project with a branding consultant so I have been working on this for a long time.
The questions in today's workshop have been really good to help me sort out where all the pieces come together.
It's a great exercise to go through. Whether I write these or hand them over to someone else to do, this is going to set us up really well.
In our communications we always strive to engage, educate, and enroll* The work we have done today really helps do that and I feel I now have posts that will engage readers, educate them as potential clients and enroll them.
Janice Francisco, Founder and CEO,
Before I joined this program, I used to haphazardly "poke around" LinkedIn looking for opportunities and then conclude it wasn’t productive! I just didn’t know how to use it for active, targeted career advancement and productive networking.
I decided to join the program because I clearly needed expert guidance and also wanted to learn from others. It really hit me that I had made the right decision when I had a coffee meeting with someone who turned out to be a valuable connection but who I would not have come across had it not been for the method taught in this program.
Thanks to this program I learned to create a well-thought out plan of action for using LinkedIn as a key component of my networking strategy, I definitely had to step out of my comfort zone but as I followed each session, I became more and more confident and strategic about my time spent on LinkedIn. Now I feel directed and focused in using it as a tool for networking that is highly targeted to my goals.
This program was definitely worth the investment I made as I have expanded my skills and tool box to connect with people who are not yet in my network and to engage them in meaningful ongoing dialogue, and I can use these skills for the rest of my life! I love building my network right from my computer!
Sophie is a great on-line instructor and engages participants in a learning dialogue that is very empowering!
I highly recommend the MAGNET Method program!
Mallory K., Director of Fundraising
My entire business is based on having a large, deep and solid network around the world and most of it was built by using LinkedIn. Now you can use what I have learned and build your own network, wherever you are, thanks to the LinkedIn MAGNET Method
I have been doing this for over 18 years.
Take a look below. The press coverage, the speaking engagements, the webinars, the podcasts... It ALL came from LinkedIn Networking!
This is to illustrate the results I got from doing exactly what I will show you with the LinkedIn MAGNET Method Programs.
Excerpt from Forbes interview of Sophie Lechner:
“Lechner [..] calls upon select individuals from her global network located in the Americas, Europe and Asia, who can share knowledge with [her] clients."
What clients say:
Before working with Sophie, I was not happy with my LinkedIn profile, because it felt choppy and disjointed. My biggest roadblock in using LinkedIn was that I didn't understand the platform. It didn't feel intuitive to me. I didn’t understand what it could do to help me grow my business.
I had originally started using LinkedIn in one professional context, which was specific to a particular work group. When that context changed, I didn't know how to integrate different facets of my professional life in a way that created a coherent picture on LinkedIn.
Sophie has a wealth of knowledge of LinkedIn and what it can do. She really loves the platform, and is passionate about helping her clients get the most from it. Her positive energy, her enthusiasm, and her belief that I could do it, was very helpful for my mindset as she guided me step by step to optimize my use of LinkedIn. She was very patient, and she had a structured procedure that took away all the anxiety and the feeling of, “How do I even do this?”
Sophie’s process helped me blend the different facets of my professional life together into a coherent whole that presents a 360-degree view of my programs, services, and skills,.
Now I feel that my LinkedIn profile represents me accurately. It’s me showing up in different aspects of myself, all of which come together to make a coherent whole.complete and accurate picture of who I am and what I can do to help my clients and customers
As a direct result of working with Sophie, I now feel proud of my LinkedIn profile. I am excited to share it with people, and I feel it's attracting the right colleagues, the right connections that I can network with, so that we can provide benefit and value to each other.
After following Sophie’s guidance, I now see that LinkedIn is a powerful tool for business growth and feel that the platform is working for me in the way it's supposed to.
Sophie is my go-to person for LinkedIn. I rely on her to help me get the most out of the platform and learn what it can do -- and I'm still learning.
Working with Sophie to optimize your LinkedIn profile shouldn't just be a one-time thing. It should be an ongoing relationship. She has so much depth of knowledge about the platform, that there are layers of learning about how to make it work for you.
I'm excited to see how my professional presence on LinkedIn evolves further, as I continue to work with Sophie to optimize my profile.
If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to benefit from Sophie’s expertise about using LinkedIn to get results for your business, go for it. Definitely take advantage of that because it's a game changer. I’m so glad I did!
