Jenne and LifeSize Demonstrate How Resellers Can Harness the Power of LinkedIn as Part of Ongoing Social Media Training Series

Third of Four-Part "Get Social, Get Sales" Video Series Highlights Setting Up Company Pages, Product Pages and Creating Vibrant Community Discussions on LinkedIn

AVON, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 -- Jenne, Inc., a leading value-added distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, unified communications, data networking and security and surveillance products, announced that the third part of its popular four-part "Get Social, Get Sales" video tutorial series with video conferencing manufacturer partner LifeSize is now posted on the Jenne website at www.jenne.com.

This third video in the series, hosted by LifeSize video evangelist Simon Dudley, covers basic and advanced techniques for using the professional networking site LinkedIn to more effectively communicate with existing and potential customers, partners and other key business constituents. The video highlights how to set up company and product pages, and explains how users can create active discussions within the LinkedIn user community.

"Committing to LinkedIn for a few minutes each day could result in resellers having a professional conversation with their customers that leads to new opportunities," said Megan Lueders, vice president of global marketing for LifeSize. "The latest episode in our video series will help resellers create a robust, new social media channel that resellers can leverage to grow their business."

During the video tutorial, Dudley discusses how LinkedIn can fit into a reseller's social media strategy, as well as the intricacies of how to use the networking site to get the most results. He guides resellers through the process of setting up both company and product pages so end-user customers can easily find them on LinkedIn, and get the corporate and product information in which they are most interested.

Additionally, Dudley dives into the more advanced features and strategies of using LinkedIn effectively to create discussion groups to connect with prospects to develop new business opportunities.

"LinkedIn still is frequently under-utilized by resellers for lead generation -- yet it is among the most effective, user friendly tools on the market," said Susan Elder, director of marketing, Jenne, Inc. "For businesses, LinkedIn requires a minimal amount of effort, yet has the potential to yield tremendous results for those resellers willing to invest just a small amount of time each day. We strongly encourage resellers to take advantage of this free online training."

The "Get Social, Get Sales" series will conclude on January 15, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. EST with a live webinar. During the webinar, Simon Dudley will review the highlights of the series and then open up a "Q and A" for resellers so they can get answers to all of their social media how-to questions. A drawing for a $100 American Express gift card will take place at the end of the webinar, and the winner must be on the call when the name is announced to win.
