My 20-year Love Affair With LinkedIn

IMG_1269 retouched.png

Hi, I'm Sophie Lechner, LinkedIn Coach for Mission-Driven Entrepreneurs.


Even though I’ve been on LinkedIn since it launched 20 years ago, it wasn’t until March of 2020 when I fully realized how much LinkedIn is a black hole for many small business owners

I held global roles in Fortune 50 companies for 25 years in Paris and New York. When LinkedIn launched it quickly became my second home. I used it daily to connect with colleagues and family around the world.

Through LinkedIn I have met incredible experts, been invited to speak in several countries, and was interviewed for a Forbes article.

And when I left corporate to build my own company, I built the business almost ENTIRELY using LinkedIn. 

“Help! How are we going to find clients now?!?!?”

In March 2020, my fellow entrepreneurs were howling in pain as the world shut down, so I flew to the rescue and started coaching them on how to get clients with LinkedIn.

The Results Blew My Mind (and theirs)

  • I helped a budding coach get from 0 to 500 connections in a few weeks

  • I helped a consultant get several 5 & 6-figure contracts via LinkedIn

  • I helped an online course instructor get several hundred sign-ups for a summit


With the MAGNET Model I was able to grow my connections from 0 to 500 in a few weeks. I've connected with many new people and built relationships that are helping me grow my business.

My first time co-hosting a summit and we had over 300 sign ups! I attribute much of this success to the power of using Sophie's MAGNET Model on LinkedIn.

Are you a victim of the Black Box Effect (2).png

You love serving your clients and sharing your knowledge and expertise but lose your positive energy when it comes time to “do marketing”

You have a to-do list of marketing tasks, and creating posts for LinkedIn is one of the items on your list

You share your offers and programs on LinkedIn but it feels misaligned and yucky to be self-promoting so you post it and disappear (and then feel disappointed because your post got no engagement)

You believe that when you get leads from LinkedIn you’ll have to get on a sales call with them and the idea makes you uncomfortable

Are You A Victim Of The Black Hole Effect?

If you’re like many of the entrepreneurs I meet who are trying to make LinkedIn work for them, you may be falling into one or more of these traps:

testimonial for website.png

The answer is NOT to do more on LinkedIn, the answer is to adopt a different approach

After working with dozens of clients I realized that there was a fundamental flaw in the way people are approaching LinkedIn: 

As small business owners, much of what we need to do, including marketing, is outside our zone of genius. We dread it, thinking it means shining a spotlight on ourselves and pushing people to buy.

Because marketing and sales are unavoidable, it is tempting to seek solutions from the “experts”, which often leaves us stuck with formulas and funnels that don't "feel right".

The biggest mistake entrepreneurs make is to see LinkedIn as just an outlet for content. Posting is just an item on a to-do list. But you need a different kind of strategy to get the most out of LinkedIn. It’s less about the content; it's about the relationships you build. It’s this shift in your approach that is the key.

The good news is that it’s about you showing up as a human. To make LinkedIn work for you, bring yourself as a whole person, and passionately speak about your vision as you would to a friend, and then organically bring people into the conversation, gradually building a movement around your mission.

Spewing out content for the sake of visibility and consistency, without investing in making genuine human connections is exhausting, ineffective, and leads to burn out.

I understood this because my clients who did well on LinkedIn were able to make this shift. It also lights me up when it happens so I’ve narrowed down my ideal target audience to mission-driven entrepreneurs.

Once they lean into their big vision and make sharing their message the central focus, rather than selling their offer, they begin to see the magic of LinkedIn. They are able to get out of their own way, detach from the immediate outcome and get into the conversations that lead to sales, and ultimately a sustainable business.

How I built 2 businesses using LinkedIn

I looked back at what I had done to build my 1st company, finding partners on several continents, gathering a faculty of over 100 experts and speaking at global events to promote my programs. I studied my own process and reverse-engineered what I did, to create a roadmap that I could share with you.

I combined my 20-year knowledge of LinkedIn, the roadmap I had used to build a global business, and all the tools I had developed in my coaching sessions with entrepreneurs, and I created the MAGNET Model. It’s a roadmap for creating a powerful brand around your mission and creating the path to those vital conversations and sales.

The MAGNET Model

A roadmap to achieving impact AND income

by centering your message around your mission

Basic MAGNET Model with no labels.png

With the MAGNET Model you can…

Attract your ideal clients like a MAGNET, instead of having to chase leads and self promote.

Have a recognized brand that is referable, instead of being the industry’s best kept secret.

Show up as your authentic self, with integrity, fully aligned with your values and your mission.

Easily convert prospects because they know, like and trust you before they get on a call.

Finally have the revenue that allows you to relax into being of service to others.

Increase your impact, serve more clients and spread your message to a wider audience.

Work in your zone of genius, at scale, bringing others in with you to grow your business.​

You will shift from seeing LinkedIn as an item on your marketing to-do list, to a new way to interact with your audience in a natural, organic way so you can focus on your favorite topic: how you can help others. 

What this will do for you

“I was in total avoidance of social media and feeling frustrated. Now I am much more comfortable using LinkedIn. I know what needs to be done and I have a process. I have stopped avoiding LinkedIn, I can use it without getting a headache. What a relief!

The content in the Client MAGNET Lab is organized, thorough and logical. What I enjoyed most was Sophie’s availability, patience and generosity with her time. She is not only knowledgeable but super supportive. I would absolutely recommend this program.”

Rich Steffen, Business Strategy Coach, USA


“I was active on LinkedIn but seeing little response and no client conversion. I was questioning the use of my time on it and uncertain whether to keep going.


Now I represent my work in more compelling ways and I feel more confident in my interactions with people on LinkedIn. I converted a client during the lab course and that makes me want to continue to invest time and work into posting on LinkedIn.


I just referred your program to someone - I said that it has helped raise my profile and interactions on LinkedIn and would be helpful to them if they wanted to use LinkedIn for marketing.”

Cheryl Whitelaw, Functional Movement Specialist, Canada

I didn’t know how to leverage LinkedIn to attract clients. I have just launched my business so I was keen to grow my brand and start attracting clients. I was feeling lost and overwhelmed, not knowing what I should be doing.


My stats have improved significantly, and I have gained confidence in building new connections. I am proud of my profile and am starting to get good traction on my content. 


I enjoyed the clarity and thoughtfulness of your feedback and guidance. The Client MAGNET program is a great way to boost your skills and turn LinkedIn into a successful communication channel for your business. 


I highly recommend this program for anyone feeling they could do better on LinkedIn!

When do we get started?

This program is by application or invite only. So you don’t have to decide right now if you’re in or not - you just have to decide to have a chat with me about it. 
So if this feels like a HECK YES to you, please click below to grab a spot on my calendar and fill out the application and we’ll talk soon!
  • What is included in the program?
    Everything you need to succeed, and a lot of extra support you can customize as needed. The online course includes 6 Training modules with videos, templates, swipe files and checklists. You will have 6 group calls, 3 one-on-one calls with me, weekly 2-hour co-working/office hour sessions for 2 months. In addition, you will have access to the MAGNET Content Workshop, a detailed Profile Review (if requested within 2 weeks of starting the program), and personalized feedback on your work for 2 months.
  • Is there a payment plan?
    Yes, you can pay in 2 installments of US$1500 each, one due when you reserve your spot and the next one 30 days later.
  • Will this work for me if I'm a beginner on LinkedIn?
    Yes! I have designed the program with complete beginners in mind so every step is covered in the course. You can also ask me questions in the live calls or in the LinkedIn group and you can set up a one-on-one call with me if/when you need help.
  • I've already been on LinkedIn for a while. Will this program be too basic for me?
    It is most likely that this program will be helpful. Absolute beginners will have everything they need to get started but most of the course will be absolutely relevant even if you've used LinkedIn for a while, whether frequently or not. If you have not had the results you expected using LinkedIn, you may be surprised by what you learn! But to be on the safe side, let's get on a call. I'll take a look at your activity and let you know if working with me one-on-one might be a better option for you.
  • What if I don't have an audience yet?
    No worries! First of all, you have more of an audience than you think you do and we will identify it together. Second, we will start diving into your network in ways you probably haven't thought of. And thirdly, as you grow your presence on LinkedIn, you will begin to grow your audience.
  • How much time will this program take?
    Watching the videos will take no longer than 30 minutes each week. Doing the assignments will likely take a couple of hours per week during the program. I would recommend you set aside 4 to 5 hours a week during the first 6 weeks, and then 2 to 3 hours a week after that.
  • Is the tech complicated?
    The tech related to the course is easy. You will receive an email with your log-in information for the course platform. The tech related to accessing and using LinkedIn will be explained in the course and practiced during the live calls. You will soon get the hang of it. And you can always ask questions during the calls or any time in the LinkedIn group. For the ongoing support we will be using Slack and the templates I share in the course are created in Google Docs. I recommended doing your work in Google Docs so I can easily provide feedback. I mini-course on how to use Google Docs and Google Folders is included in the course.
  • What happens if I can't attend the live sessions?
    Although I recommend participating live, if you are unable to attend one of the sessions, just know that all the sessions are recorded and kept in the course platform for you to watch later.
  • How long will I have access to the course platform?
    For as long as I'm in business, so hopefully many years to come!!
  • I'm just starting out. Is this program right for me?
    It is, as long as you have a good idea what your offer will include and who your audience is. If you are not sure how tightly those 2 elements are nailed down, let's have a conversation and I'll let you know whether additional work might be required before taking this program or whether you would benefit right now.
  • Will this work for my business?
    If you have service or expertise based business, this will work very well. If you have a product based business or another type of company, let's get on a call to discuss how this might work for you or not.
  • What if I am not a good writer and don't know what to post about?
    No worries! Many of my clients came to me saying this but it turns out you really don't need writing skills. As for not knowing what to post about, very son you won't be able to stop posting!
