How many LinkedIn connections is enough? How do I stay in touch with them?

Whatever number of connections you have, we recommend you start looking at them a bit closer and working out how you can leverage any help or support from them.

Many people aren’t aware that you can segment your LinkedIn connections into topic categories within LinkedIn. The platform allows you to segment your connections by subject areas and this process is called ‘tagging’.

Tagging allows you to organise your LinkedIn connections by industry or roles. This is quite useful as it allows you to tailor your messages to your network.

To help you do this, 10Eighty’s LinkedIn specialist and Career Coach Sarah Burgess has created this quick guide to help you get started.
