How I’m Using LinkedIn to Break into the Entertainment Industry. (UPDATE)

When I first shared my LinkedIn strategy in the previous post, I said I would rinse and repeat the strategy with my newly made connections. Apparently, LinkedIn said “no ma’am”. There’s a monthly cap on the amount of profile searches and ultimately connections you can make. And I guess I’ve reached the cap for December. You can lift the cap by paying for a premium plan on LinkedIn. However, that’s not part of the strategy. At least not right now. So, I’ll sit back and relax, and focus on writing the book until my cap is lifted next month. I checked the cost to get unlimited searches, and it’s $55.99 a month if you pay for all 12 months up front. So a monthly installment would be more than that.

LinkedIn knows exactly what they’re doing. There’s a lower cost plan below that but it doesn’t allow “unlimited people browsing”. That lower cost plan is $39.99 a month.

So, that’s my disclaimer if you decide to try this strategy. You’ll have to be patient (as with anything), and play the long game. It’s ok if you’re unable to make the investment at the moment. But if you can, it doesn’t hurt to be able to connect with as many people as possible in a short amount of time. While I wait for these seeds I’ve planted to grow, I’m cultivating the soil by creating work to be able to show my connections when the opportunity for a meeting arises.

What strategy are you using to break down barriers to your desired industry?

-Bare it all and bloom.
