Consider this challenge – four years ago it was easier to convince people that holding a training session on LinkedIn was a good idea. It was new, didn’t have any real help facilities, and wasn’t the most straight forward to understand.

But a couple months back I proposed an event that coincided with the release of The Revised LinkedIn Personal Trainer and was essentially rebuffed – the group members didn’t think they’d get much value from it.

And that’s why we came up with this quiz…

Do we need it?

That’s one of those areas where a trainer can have a difficult time.

If you didn’t need it, I wouldn’t see this evidence:

  • Incomplete profiles
  • Lack of branding
  • Misuse (or ignorance) of site features

I answer very similar questions to those asked several years ago…

But nobody really cares what the trainer thinks – if the class doesn’t think they need the material, they don’t show up.

So here’s my challenge – take this quiz to find out:


Yes, it asks for your name and email address – I don’t care if you enter one or not. It’s just to send you an email with the details of your responses. (I know – this violates the rules of “though shalt build a list of people to send offers to”, but that’s not important to me. If you like my material, you’ll get on the subscription list over to the right;-)

I’ll track how these go

I’m using the WordPress Simple Survey plugin to do the quiz, and haven’t fully looked into the backend – if it works out, I’ll be able to publish a summary of the quiz results.

To date, the highest response is a 90, the lowest a 12. (And given the way it’s setup, it’s impossible to score below a 3)

Enjoy and Share.

To your continued success,
