THE KEY TO BUSINESS SUCCESS IS BUILDING AND NURTURING YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
Hi, I’m JoAnne Funch. I transform professionals from making random connections to making strategic and high-value connections that result in more profitable, long-term opportunities.
HOW I GOT CONNECTED!
I relocated from southern California to my hometown of Minneapolis in 2007 starting my life over following some personal life changing events.
As an entrepreneur, I needed a way to connect with the business community and so I turned to LinkedIn.
LinkedIn had only been around 4 years and there were 8,000,000 members worldwide, but those who were on the platform were engaged and serious about networking. As of early 2018 there are 546,000,000 members.
Following my own personal success in making new connections, building brand awareness and driving leads I started teaching others what I learned.
I am a passionate about LinkedIn for business and an advocate for building both strategic and meaningful, long-term relationships. I am invested in the success of my network and teaching others to do the same.
I work with individuals and companies who want to leverage LinkedIn to manage their reputation, build a personal brand, find and engage prospects and build value-based relationships.
LinkedIn for Business Equals Opportunity
The opportunities are great and you can no longer afford to be complacent on LinkedIn. That means showing up and actually engaging in dialogue even though it starts online. According to a recent study by LinkedIn, 77% of top sellers always use LinkedIn to identify potential contacts.

"We knew we needed a stronger presence on LinkedIn but our efforts resulted in little to no success. As a result, we began working with JoAnne. She revamped our individual and company profiles and coached us on how to make LinkedIn work for us. Almost immediately we experienced a noticeable increase in our company recognition as well as connections with several new business prospects. We certainly recommend her to other small businesses."

"JoAnne helped me update my LinkedIn profile. She listened to my story. She distilled my core messages and turned those into great messages for a profile. I thought I had written what I had said, but she clearly pointed out that what I thought I said and what I wrote were not the same. Thanks, Coach. Everyone needs a coach to hear their ideas and bring them to the next level."
