More than half of the UK’s workforce now have profiles on LinkedIn, says Miles Duncan and David Rattray.

Miles and Dave, who are the creators of the acclaimed LinkedIn Success Blueprint training system, told linkedintrainingacademy.co.uk that the subscriber base of the business networking platform has been growing steadily throughout the year.

Miles said: “Earlier this year linked in gained 1.2 million new users in just 27 days.

“That equates to 30 new subscribers signing up every minute!”

Miles explained that LinkedIn now has more than 16.2million subscribers– more than half of Britain’s working age population of 32 million.

He said that the global network currently extends to over 300million users, across all sectors of industry.

Dave added: “At LinkedIn Success Blueprint, we believe Linkedin provides massive potential for every business. CEOs, business leaders, SME and professionals are beginning to realise the massive potential.

“When you learn how to go beyond just creating a great profile, experience has shown us that there are endless possibilities to attract new clients, promote your brand, people, products and services.”
