Welcome to LinkedIn For Business – Your #1 resource for practical, effective LinkedIn and relationship marketing strategies.

Hi, I’m JoAnne Funch

We all know that gaining visibility in today’s noisy
online world can be a challenge.

How do you stand out in the sea of sameness?

My goal is to create LinkedIn & relationship-building strategies for business owners, entrepreneurs and corporate leaders that drive visibility, increase engagement, and build influence for more impact, credibility and income.

Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of individuals, and what I know for sure is that you are more than your title!

I invite you to schedule a 20-minute consultation with me where I can learn more about you and your goals and determine if I have a solution to meet those goals.

“7 Ways to Transform Your LinkedIn Network
from a Database to Valuable Business”

LinkedIn For Business is more than a resource about how to use the LinkedIn social platform, what buttons to push and how many people you can invite to your network.

Personal Branding

You are more than your title or resume. Your personal brand should help you stand out not fit-in and enhance what you are known for.

Relationships First

Business is all about
relationships and the business
of life is about the human
connection. Business is won when we have built our know, like & trust factor.

Visiblity: Be Seen & Heard

Your visibility requires a strategy to reach the ideal audience you want to influence. I teach you how to prioritize the right content and build influence through engagement.

I know you have a lot of choices when it comes to the experts you choose to follow and I know I have to earn your trust.
So start here to get to know me...

I relocated from southern California after 25 years to my hometown of Minneapolis in 2007 starting my life over following a personal life-changing event.

Starting my life over personally was hard – starting my business over in a new state with no clients and no business connections, was even harder.

Maybe you’ve experienced starting over sometime in your life too and so you can relate to the fear and uncertainty it can bring. I admit I did spend some months complaining about the bad hand I was dealt and then one day I made the choice to get busy and make my own opportunities!

I knew I needed a way to connect with other professionals in this new business community and so I turned to LinkedIn.

In 2007 LinkedIn had only been around 4 years and there were 8,000,000 members worldwide. Those I connected with were excited to meet me as I shared my story and asked each new person I met who did they think I should meet?  It was amazing how many people wanted to help and made introductions for me.

I was able to build a network of people that led to conversations and opportunities and I went on to build a successful business not only locally but nationally by learning to ask better questions and add value first to those people I connect with along the way.

Following my own personal success in making new connections, building brand awareness, and driving leads I started sharing my unique perspectives along with simply empowering YOU to build a brand worth following.

I am passionate about using LinkedIn as a tool for business, reputation management, thought leadership, job opportunities, and brand exposure while building both strategic and meaningful, long-term relationships

My #1 core value is connection.

When not at work I love to cook, grow my own vegetables, entertain and share meals with family & friends.

I am here to partner in YOUR success!

utilizing the power of LinkedIn to reach B2B customers and help us stand out from our competition, which has resulted in significant growth for our companies. JoAnne is a real visionary and her knowledge of LinkedIn and how to integrate it with an overall marketing strategy is second to none. She has my highest recommendation.”

“I had a 40-minute call with JoAnne after coming across her YouTube videos. She was very generous with her time and gave me some tips I can implement right away. I have hired and talked with other LinkedIn “gurus” who wanted thousands of dollars (upfront) for their programs and after speaking with JoAnne, she will be my go-to moving forward. Highly recommend her.”
