TAI: How can service-based solopreneurs find leads on Linked In?

MELONIE: With over 300 million members and over one third of all professional in the world as members, LinkedIn is an excellent platform for service-based solopreneurs to find leads or prospects.

There are two great ways for you to find leads on LinkedIn. The first is to use the Advanced Search, with fields such as location, industry, title and company to narrow down the results and help you find a list of leads within your existing network.
