One of the great things about LinkedIn is it isn’t the same kind of networking that happens at conventions, where you’re wearing a name tag, trying to meet strangers, and awkwardly attempting to make small talk. LinkedIn is networking without the pressure.

So, the first one is very important. You need to work on building connections with other people. Business owners that have the same niches. Maybe similar niches might help you to work together to grow your business. It might be easy to connect but make sure to maintain a good connection with them. Try to know those who accept to talk with you.
You can congratulate someone when they achieve a milestone. Also, when they achieve a higher rank in their business. Wish them a happy birthday as well. these things you can do and Linkedin gives you a notification to do that. Could be a good way to start connecting with people on your connections list.
Use Linkedin to grow your business owners’ friends list. That can help you to grow your business and find opportunities to help you with that.
