This will be my second blog post highlighting some of the superstars that make LinkedIn such a fun community. If you’re new to the platform, a good summary would be as follows:
Facebook with five times the value and only a tenth of the farming simulators.
LinkedIn is great whether you’re looking to join a new field of work, connect with an old lead, or join in on conversations shaping the sales community as it grows in scope, technology, and techniques.
All of that and more in one place! And like I mentioned up top, the people are just the icing on the cake. Through LinkedIn and its helpful community, I have found valuable connections, business partnerships, and heck, maybe even a blog viewer or two.
Whether you’re looking for value-added scrolling, high-powered connections, or a fresh perspective on the day-to-day life of a marketer, the following individuals should be your first follows. At worst, you’ll get some engaging content—at best, you might find a friend for life.
13 marketing leaders-
Udi Ledergor – If even for his cheerleader skills alone, I’d recommend following Udi. Besides that? His skill at recruiting, managing marketing content, and invigorating a community. Check out Udi’s profile here.
Dave Gerhardt – You can join over 7,000 other B2B marketers with Dave’s excellent weekly marketing newsletter. For even more insight, he’s active on LinkedIn here.

Joining LinkedIn is a must for anyone looking to expand their network opportunities, industry knowledge, or professional standing online. It’s a great tool to link to your marketing site to offer clients a chance to get to see a more casual side of you that still focuses on business and personal development. Let’s just hope these clients find you there first and not on Tinder!
If you’re looking to squeeze more out of LinkedIn (like cold email outreach, professional networking, or job opportunities), we should get in touch. Beyond teaching the basics and advanced techniques of high-power SDRs, I offer tools and techniques to “level you up” online through classes, consultation, and more.
Book a meeting today, and let’s get to work on finding you the best scaling opportunities for your brand and unique talents.
