I have been a fan of LinkedIn for many years, but I had always felt that I was not leveraging the tool effectively for sales. Crystal Thies' LinkedIn Ninja Black Belt for Sales training program is THE answer to learning how to use LinkedIn for successful business development. Crystal has generated a great program, one that is packed with information, yet is flexible so it can be self-paced. I encourage anyone who wants to develop sales through LinkedIn to participate in Crystal Thies' LinkedIn Ninja Black Belt for Sales training program - I highly recommend it!

A quick 'thank you' for your LinkedIn Black Belt training. I took the training and as a result, was able to exceed my quotas by 200%. In addition, my company asked me to train staff on the importance of leveraging LinkedIn. Because of this success, I am now in a better position to market myself for bigger and better opportunities.

Crystal did a fantastic job of helping me understand the power of LinkedIn and how to use it. She helped me set up my profile to provide information to my target market as well as how to leverage different parts of LinkedIn to prospect inside my target market. I would recommend Crystal to anyone who wants to get serious about using LinkedIn to increase their network and business.

I've been with Crystal consistently for many years. She's been my guru for what's happening on LinkedIn and how to make the most of its many resources. Don't try to navigate this important B2B resource on your own; use a professional, use Crystal. She stays up-to-date with all the changes that LinkedIn makes which saves you time and the frustration of figuring it out on your own.

Crystal provides the framework and the steps to use the tool every day, and I have experienced outstanding results from her wisdom. Thanks to her and her process, I'm happy to say I finally know how to make money using LinkedIn: by helping people get what they want.

When I wanted to learn how to use LinkedIn more effectively, I interviewed four LinkedIn coaches. Crystal was the one I chose. She communicates things in an easy-to-understand manner, which I appreciate, and I'm in touch with her at least 3 times per month. This keeps me informed on the tricks/tips and the changes in this powerful tool.

If you want to maximize the power of LinkedIn for you and your business, Crystal can show you how. After all, she is known as the LinkedIn Ninja for a reason!
