LinkedIn's hidden help feature will help you grow your network and brand

With a growing reputation and nearly a billion worldwide users, LinkedIn is well-known for job seekers.

Still, this social media portal has a hidden aspect to it. To me, it’s helping others.

As a LinkedIn coach and teacher, I have shown others some amazing stories of how people have helped others. The Afghanistan withdrawal, hurricanes and other events have shown me how LinkedIn users have helped others.

I want to suggest some simple ways to help others through LinkedIn.

The first way? It’s to introduce someone to another person through a LinkedIn message. Most of us know how to individually send a message to someone. However, it also allows you to make a personal introduction.
