LinkedIn Ninja Dojo 3.0

The Elite Training Community for LinkedIn Practitioners

I started the LinkedIn Ninja Dojo in 2018 as a cost-effective way for LinkedIn users at all levels to get the answers they need to their LinkedIn questions in order to help them build effective and efficient LinkedIn lead generation and marketing strategies.

Some of those original founding members are still in the Dojo today!

The Dojo has evolved over the years and based on the needs expressed by many members, I’m excited to announce the third iteration of the Dojo membership starting in January 2022.

What’s new in LinkedIn Ninja Dojo 3.0? ... What else?!  More LIVE training!


Get personal guidance and recommendations for your LinkedIn strategy with monthly Hot Seat Coaching.

Stay up to date with all of LinkedIn’s changes and get your questions answered with Ask the LinkedIn Ninja including What the HECK did LinkedIn Change Now!

And, introducing…. LinkedIn Ninja Strategy Workshops! With these workshops, I’ll be sharing the nuts and bolts of specific strategies and systems that you can use in your business.

Additionally, you’ll get a weekly LinkedIn Ninja Tip video right in your inbox!

"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."

Karl Sundstom

Director of Sales, NobleBiz - Contact centre technology

"I was a total beginner, a newbie when it came to knowing how to use and navigate Linkedin. The only reason I ever used it in the past, was for finding a new job! However, through your NINJA training course, I have learned how to use LinkedIn as a great lead generation tool! I would highly recommend your services to anyone who's interested in lead generation, and staying connected to important business contacts."

Bottom line… You’ll never be alone again when you join the LinkedIn Ninja Dojo and you’ll always have access to the LinkedIn Ninja herself to optimize your LinkedIn strategy.

The Dojo has always been a month-to-month membership, but lately, people have been asking for an annual membership option. They’d like to not deal with monthly charges AND they’d like to see a little bit of a discount.

With LinkedIn Ninja Dojo 3.0, we’re introducing the annual membership option with a BIG DISCOUNT!

BUT, as the founding members of the Annual Plan, you have a chance to get an EVEN LOWER PRICE!

The current monthly price is $57/month ($684 annualized) but it’s INCREASING in January to $67/month ($804 annualized).

When you become a Founding Annual Dojo Member, you can join for ONLY $397!

That’s a 50% discount on the annualized new monthly rate of $67 and a $270 savings on the full price annual membership rate of $667 that starts on January 1.

It comes out to ONLY $33/month.

This is the third lowest rate I’ve ever offered!

Founding members joined for $25/month and during the pandemic, I offered a special rate of $27/month for those very special circumstances.

For the low price of only $397, you’ll get over 50 hours of live training AND hours of training in the on-demand library.

Better yet… you LOCK IN that rate for as long as you stay a member. It will renew each year at this low, low price while the price for everyone else keeps getting higher and higher.

Do you have other people step in and do the training?

No. The LIVE training is all me and not an underling. From time to time, I invite speakers with other expertise that would support your LinkedIn strategy to join in, but the LinkedIn training comes right from the LinkedIn Ninja’s mouth!

If I select the monthly option, can I cancel?

The month-to-month membership option can be canceled at any time with 2 business days’ notice. There are no refunds, but you will get full access to the program until the month is finished.

What if I buy the annual membership and I’m not happy with it?

You have 30 days to test drive the training. If you attend at least one live training and watch some of the training in the library and you’re not happy with the quality of the training and coaching, you can get a refund. BUT this program is not for looky-loos. You have to actually try the program to qualify for a refund.

What if I’m not quite ready to commit to a year?

If you’re really on the fence, purchase the monthly membership and email me  your concern. IF at the end of the first month you want to take advantage of the special Founding Member Annual Price, I’ll let you get it. BUT you must notify me when you sign up for the monthly rate that you’d like the option.

I’m pretty new to using LinkedIn. Is this too advanced for me?

The LinkedIn Ninja Dojo is for LinkedIn Practitioners at all levels. We have in-depth training on my Baby Steps to LinkedIn Success system that is ideal for beginners or those struggling to build a LinkedIn habit. No question is too simple to ask in the live training.

What's a Dojo?

Dojo is the Japanese term for the building where students learn martial arts. In LinkedIn Ninja terminology, it's the digital space where practitioners come to learn how to master LinkedIn to grow their business.

What if I can't attend the Live Training?

All live training is recorded and added to the library as soon as possible after editing and formatting. Even free, live training outside the Dojo gets added to the library. So, you will never miss any of the live training.

What if I’m already a Dojo member paying a higher monthly rate?

You can purchase the new annual membership and let me know you want to cancel your monthly membership. Anyone with a $37/month or higher membership rate will save money with the annual option.

"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. 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. 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!"

"LinkedIn is a powerful tool, and I always wanted to use it more effectively, but wasn't sure exactly how to do so. Then, I met Crystal and enrolled in her Linkedin Dojo program, and I am happy to say how I approach LinkedIn will never be the same. She and her program have helped me understand things like how to build a powerful profile to build a strong network. She provides the framework and the steps to effectively use the tool every day, and I have experienced tangible results from her wisdom. "

BONUSES?!?  We don’t need no stinking bonuses!

Besides… Everything I would add as a “bonus” is ALREADY IN THE LIBRARY! That’s the beauty of the Dojo Library… everything I create that doesn’t belong to a client gets added to the Dojo library! You’ll never miss anything!

I don’t know about you, but I roll my eyes when other trainers offer a huge list of overly valued “bonuses.”

Things that could be promoted as “bonuses” but are already in the library include
