Ever wondered how to gain more clients through LinkedIn? We have put together our top tips below.

If you want to clone your best customers, use the sidebar called “People Also Viewed”. Visit one of your biggest prospects or customers, then look to your right. The box called “People Also Viewed” shows other users who are similar to your connections. You have just turned one prospect into many.
