Manage your personal branding! It is very important to control your image on the networks, not to publish anything and especially to have a content strategy to be visible!
Do not spam, insist or solicit the wrong targets and drop the deal if the users are not interested and avoiding sending gif chats on the sixth relaunch without reply.

Daily ! I have been using LinkedIn every day since I realized its strength!
At first, only a pro account with people I knew.

Do not hesitate to follow influential people or join discussion groups.

It’s pretty easy to be visible on LinkedIn. I appreciate being able to reach thousands of people in one post and especially being able to connect and exchange with other freelancers much more easily via groups or private messages directly.
What has LinkedIn allowed you to gain?
Gain visibility! Increase my professional LinkedIn network , do dozens of physical meetings, get interviews beforehand for a job and find candidates now for my company. Find inspiration via Pulse articles, promote my business… But it is above all my showcase and when I am asked for my CV, I send my profile! 🙂
What are the lessons of your life as an entrepreneur that you have to to share ?
Partner up from the start with a designer, developer and marketer with sufficient capital!
But above all : go meet its users even before product design and understand future users as much as possible through interviews, tests and focus groups!
Automate much of the management, returns, backlogs, prospecting to gain a maximum of time on the rest!
In any case: jump on the opportunities and act quickly because in tech everything can change very quickly !
