Widgets: Make your Desire to Grow Your Professional Network Better Known

Letslunch is now offering widgets that allow you to display your lunch availability on your blog, on social media or on your website. Now great professionals who read about you on your blog or website can easily reach out and meet with you. All you need to do is copy and paste the code from our ‘Widgets’ tab under resources and you’re ready to go!


Are you with a great company that is looking to make new business contacts? You can now display the Letslunch profiles of employees who are looking to meet new contacts for lunch. Check out this amazing example of a recruiting firm called Rockit Recruiting, http://rockitrecruiting.com/careers-lunched/. Potential clients who are already perusing your website now have a simple way to reach out to you right then.


Another great way to use widgets is for groups. Say your organization, such as the ‘FounderInstitute,’ http://LetsLunch.com/FI wants to promote their Letslunch group as well as their own members who are open to a networking lunch. Now members who are available for networking lunches can be prominently displayed on your organization’s website and easily discovered by other members or potential new members of your organization.


Lastly, don’t forget to try a Letslunch widget for job seekers and recruiters. If you are looking for a new job, make sure and put your Letslunch profile on your website or blog. If you are a recruiter, place your Letslunch profile on your website and make it easy for the talent to come to you!

Sponsored Lunchers

“Looking for a designer, web developer, accountant, or other professionals?” Well, now service professionals can pay to ‘sponsor’ themselves on Letslunch to help them generate great contacts for their business. Letslunchers can now easily find such people and go to lunch with someone who’s services or advice they need.



Widgets

We’ve built new widgets that make it easier for job seekers, recruiters and groups to network with great people. Now you can add your Letslunch profile to your blog or webpage so when great people find you, they can immediately reach out and connect in real life!



Lunch Invites

We have two great new features to help you plan more lunches. The first, ‘Invite a New Contact’ helps you make use of that stack of business cards from people you’ve met, but haven’t connected with again. Simply  type in the contact’s email address and Letslunch will send an invite with your lunch availability.

Has it been awhile since you’ve connected with some of your Linkedin or Facebook contacts? Try the new ‘Reconnect with an Existing Contact’ feature and send your lunch availability to someone with  you haven’t connected in a while. It’s a simple quick way to reconnect. What are you waiting for?

Sincerely,
The LetsLunch Team
