I offer services in a variety of displines.

Professionals in need of services readily turn to LinkedIn to assess the availablity of help. 

My business also has needs. Based on the information I choose to include in my profile (or change in my profile or create a new profile) I can attract solutions providers to me.

In either case, those who are alert and using these tools suggests to me they didn't crawl out of a hole yesterday. They have proven to be great resources in bringing business to me and solving the challenges of the business I currently have.

IT is a B2B platform. 

Here is something you must mull over. In the emerging sharing economy, how has LinkedIn changed?  This presents the 3rd beneift of being present on LinkedIn.

I believe that Joe Petrowsky makes great use of Linkedin through his regular posting on this site.  I haven't posted much other than to do status updates.  Though, having a profile with endorsements is good for your SEO.

Joshua,

We have had a few clients come off our Linked In presence.  We also get a lot of useless emails from those who have bought the email everyone lists from LinkedIN.  I see it as a presence on the WWW.  I also think, we are in a period of social fatigue.  I have been predicting this for a while now, and I see it realized.  For most of our clients, social media is not something that is even part of their marketing plan.  A

Joshua Hess I do have about 30-40 views on my profile every month! At least half of them are the referrals and leads that want to know more about me.

Since I have a background in IT, it is easy for many of them to connect with me - as I can speak their 'language'!

Not much.  It is a business networking tool and doesn't have the frequency of use that I see on Facebook, etc.  I use it to amplify my message, as others have stated.  Nothing more.  Free account all the way.  Not worth paying for.
