Understanding and assessing the strength of your existing relationships is a critical input into the customer and partner analyses that you’ll be doing soon. And you can try to do the relationship analysis by hand, thinking about all the people you know and figuring out where they work today, but that approach is always incomplete and painful so instead we built a simple tool that takes your LinkedIn and basically creates a heat map so you can see where you already have strong clusters of relationships
If you don’t have a LinkedIn account then we highly recommend starting one now, it’s a critical customer and partner engagement tool, and if you don’t have one prospective partners and customers will question your credibility.
Similarly, if your Linkedin is out of date then we highly recommend updating it before you continue. Fortunately, LinkedIn has excellent auto-update features and we have instructions on how to use them below.
But once your LinkedIn account is current upload a file with all your connections and FedScout will heatmap your relationships and integrate that analysis into the following exercises to help you make better decisions faster.
