Business Tip: Use LinkedIn...

Most entrepreneurs will tell you that your professional networks are a large determinant of your venture's success.

LinkedIn utilises the concept of 6-degrees of spearation:
LinkedIn is a networking tool that helps you discover inside connections to recommended job candidates, industry experts and business partners. Through LinkedIn, you can accelerate your business effectiveness and career success by leveraging the network you already have. LinkedIn makes it easy to receive and seek out opportunities through your extended network while protecting your privacy, your inbox and your existing professional relationships.


So a scenario might be:
You spot a high-ranking executive, Mel, that you want to get a hold of, but don't know personally. However, one of your trusted contacts, Greg, does have this person as a trusted contact. You can request Greg to refer your details to Mel. She can then decide whether or not to contact you.

Contact information, such as email, is hidden, unless they accept your invitation to be part of your LinkedIn network.

I currently use LinkedIn and have been able to meet a few contacts and also refer a few on as well.
