  • 1. Tips on Creating the Perfect LinkedIn ProfileLinkedIn is the most popular social media network for professionals. UnlikeFacebook, Twitter and other sites that are used for personal purposes, itsstrictly for business. For this reason, signing up for a LinkedIn account andfilling out profile information is a little bit different from other social networks.What to IncludeFirst of all, your profile should be complete. Fill out even the details that youdont believe are important. People will be searching for your profile using allkinds of information. For example, old schoolmates will find you by youreducation information. Another reason is that a half-completed profile lookslazy. It looks like you dont care enough to take the thirty minutes to finish it.Be sure to include:  Work experience – Present and past positions in all fields.  Education – The schools youve attended and degrees obtained.  Areas of specialization – These will set you apart from similar profiles.  Your websites – List all of them that you want people to know about.  Interests and hobbies – These may not be important but they can offer another connection point between you and others on LinkedIn.  Awards – Dont be afraid to brag.  Location – This one is important because lots of people search by geographic location.Writing Your ProfileWriting your LinkedIn profile may feel like doing your resume, but its not.Youre creating content as well as laying down the facts. Like content for anyblog or website, make it readable and interesting. Write it in a professional,AND personable manner in order to make it something that youd enjoyreading yourself rather than just a laundry list of achievements. Be sure toalso use your keywords that are relevant to your niche or business sector.Using your keywords in your tag line and through out your profile is
  • 2. extremely important...this is a major factor that LinkedIn uses todetermine how relevant your profile is when people are searchingonline.Your Profile PictureJust like all social media profiles, your LinkedIn profile needs a good picture. Itshould be a photograph of you. The site doesnt allow logos or funny pictures(and remember, this isnt Facebook, so dont get wacky with it). One of themain purposes of your photo is to show that youre a real person.Your picture should be friendly but not too casual. Make sure that the sizing isright. It shouldnt be a full body picture where your face is about one pixel. Onthe other hand, your face shouldnt fill the entire frame.Keyword OptimizationLinkedIn profiles appear in search engine results so you should keywordoptimize. Wherever possible, use targeted keywords that people might usewhen looking for someone like you. Be careful not to stuff it with the samekeywords over and over or else it will look like youre trying to game the site.Use your keywords naturally and tastefully.Again...be sure to use your keywords in your tagline as well asthrough out you entire profile...but DO NOT keyword stuff your profileor it will look spammy to LinkedIn.Your Unique URLWhen you first sign up for LinkedIn, it will assign you a generic URL. You canchange it with just a few clicks and keystrokes. Go to Edit My Profile andPublic Profile. Click where it says edit and you can enter your own vanityURL.If possible, use your name. If not, choose something that uses your name and
  • 3. is easy to remember. Thats the main point of the vanity URL – it gives peoplesomething easy to remember. LinkedIn lets you change it at any time, but picksomething good and stick with it. Whenever you change your URL, youll losepeople who have you bookmarked as well as breaking any links you’ve createdelsewhere to your personal profile.The Real YouThere are lots of profiles that are fake or just plain boring. You want yours tostand out and the best way to do this is to infuse your own personality. Keepit professional, but dont be afraid to share some personal information as well.Thats what makes your profile unique and it will invite others to connect withyou.==============================================Easy Ways to Build Your LinkedIn NetworkBuilding connections is essential for making LinkedIn work for you. Its notjust about what you know but who you know. Your connections are the peopleyou know directly. Theyre the ones who either youve invited into yournetwork or who have invited you. Either way, they don’t become an officialconnection until the invitations are accepted. Your overall network includesyour 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree connections.How to Get in TouchThere are three ways to get in touch with people: Invitations – You can invite anyone whose email address you know. Introductions – These can be sent through a direct connection of yours to anyone in your network. The connection receives the request for an introduction and they can choose to forward it or not. InMail – This is LinkedIns internal email system and you have to pay for your InMails. Premium memberships come with a set number per month. However, you can use them to contact anyone with a LinkedIn profile.
  • 4. When you contact anyone through LinkedIn, its essential that you make it aspersonal as possible. The site provides a canned message but it sounds terseand impersonal. Its much better to take a few minutes and create your ownmessage. In your message, remind the person who you are. Even if youresure they remember you, give them a point of reference. Mention the projectyou worked on together or whatever way you have a connection with them.Personalize your invitation as much as possible when sending your invites.Searching for ConnectionsThere are several ways you can search for connections. One is to simplyupload your email address book and let LinkedIn send out requestsautomatically. This is convenient and saves lots of time, but its much better tosend out personalized messages. Youll have a much better chance of themaccepting your request. You also get penalized if someone clicks on the boxthat says they dont know you.Another way to find people you know is by looking at people in your network.Look at who your connections know and see if theres anyone who might knowyou.There are some people on LinkedIn who are LIONs – LinkedIn OpenNetworkers. LIONs connect to anyone who sends them an invitation. Theyllusually have the phrase LION in their profile so you can find them bysearching. Connecting to LIONs is a good way to grow your network but try tofind people who you actually have something in common with. Theres nopoint in growing your network for the sheer numbers.Let Them Come to YouIf youre active on LinkedIn, people will find you. Make sure that your privacysettings allow them to. Participate in groups, update with fresh content often,use LinkedIn Answers and become an overall hyperactive user. Groups areespecially good for growing your network because you have a chance tocommunicate directly with so many like-minded people. If you do this, people
  • 5. will find you and your network will grow naturally.==============================================The LinkedIn Search Function – Tips on Finding Exactly WhoYou Need to FindPeople search is one of the most important features of LinkedIn. You can useit to find new connections, search for jobs, get clients, or recruit employees.The search function puts this booming social media sites more than 135million users right at your fingertips. Heres how you can make the best of thisfunction to find exactly who you need.Advanced SearchLinkedIn offers an Advanced Search option. Youll find the link right next tothe regular search bar. You should always use advanced search because it letsyou set the exact parameters you need. You dont just have to enter a generickeyword or phrase and get a jumble of mixed results.For example, if youre searching for people who work for a certain companynow, just searching the companys name will turn up anyone who mentionsthe company anywhere in their profile. They could be a past employee orsomeone who uses the companys product. Advanced search lets you find onlythose who work for the company currently.Boolean TermsThe search function lets you use Boolean terms to refine your search. Theseinclude:AND – To include two or more terms and only those profiles that have themOR – For searches where there are multiple keywords used for the same thingNOT – To exclude profiles that contain a certain wordParenthesis – For an exact phrase rather than just words
  • 6. Sorting ResultsWhen you get your search results, there are a number of ways to sort them.By default the site sorts everything by relevance. You can choose to sortresults by relationship, recommendations, connections, or any combination ofthe above. This helps you filter your results so that you only find those thatyou want.When looking at the results, there are also two different viewing options, oneof which gives you more information at a glance. They also show you InCommon, which are connections or groups that you share with the person.Other Search FeaturesLinkedIns search function lets you save searches so that you can refer back tothem later. With a basic account you can save up to three searches. If youupgrade your membership, each level gives you more searches to use.You can also choose to get reminders by email whenever a new profilematches your search. When someone signs up and their profile contains whatyoure looking for, youll be notified. It will also let you know when someonechanges their profile to match your needs.The search function isnt just for finding people. You can also use it to look forcompanies, groups, answers, and jobs. All of these offer the same options foradvanced searches.How to Get the Best ResultsThe best way to get relevant, useful results quickly is to know exactly whatyou want beforehand. Picture your ideal prospect, employee, employer orclient. Get an idea of what information from their profile will tell you thattheyre the one youre looking for. If you can refine your search with theperfect search terms, you’ll save yourself a lot of time.==============================================
  • 7. The Power of LinkedIn Groups for NetworkingLinkedIn Groups offer a great opportunity for networking with professionals inyour industry and potential customers, clients or sales leads. They also getyou good exposure for your business. You can use Groups to brand yourself asa friendly, helpful expert in your niche.LinkedIn lets you join up to fifty groups but you should only join a handful. Youneed to actively participate and its impossible to devote this kind of time tomore than a few. A good strategy for getting started is to sign up for everyrelevant group you can find and then quit the ones where theres little activity.Find groups where your target market is hanging out and to which you feel youcan contribute.CommentWhat do you do once youre signed up? The easiest way to get involved is toread and comment. Just like forums or blogs, try to offer value to othermembers of the group by sharing your expertise. Be yourself and focus onbeing helpful. Read what other members are saying and respond naturallywith your own ideas.Spread the NewsThe Groups interface allows you to easily share links to relevant informationonline. Whenever you find a news article, blog post or website that you thinkother group members would enjoy, share it and other group members cancomment on it. This is a good way to start a discussion. Every group isdifferent and they all like different kinds of content so pay attention to howthey respond to your shares.Announce EventsSome groups let you make announcements to the group about upcomingevents youre hosting. If youve got a webinar or offline event coming up, post
  • 8. about it and let everyone know. Make sure that its relevant and valuable tothe group or else it will look spammy. Shameless self-promotion doesnt goover well on LinkedIn.Start DiscussionsOne of the purposes of LinkedIn groups is for members to share their ideas. Ifyouve got an idea that you feel might get some conversation going, start adiscussion. You can also ask questions to get other members opinions. Spendsome time in your groups and get a feel for what kinds of topics the memberslike.Conduct PollsLinkedIn has a feature that lets you conduct polls. Other members can voteand like with one click. They can also add comments. This is a good way toparticipate and get yourself known as an active group member. Its also a goodway to learn more about your market or colleagues.Group EtiquetteThere are a few rules of etiquette to follow on LinkedIn groups. Of course,dont spam a group. It shouldnt need to be said, but lots of people do it. Theyemploy blatant tactics to get backlinks and what it usually gets is a penalty.As mentioned before, self-promotion doesnt fly. You need to remember whypeople use LinkedIn. Theyre here to network, hang out, learn, and shareideas with like-minded professionals. Theyre not here to buy or check outpromotional offers.Dont fight with anyone. If a conversation becomes heated, take it out of thegroup comment thread and take it to your private email. Arguing with peopleon LinkedIn doesnt brand you as a helpful, agreeable, and friendlyprofessional. In general, avoid being negative.Be Proactive
  • 9. One final tip – be proactive with LinkedIn groups. Dont wait for the daily orweekly newsletter to come into your email inbox. Get into a routine of visitingyour groups daily to at least read and, if possible, join in the discussion or offerup some thought-provoking ideas. If youre active and you consistentlyprovide value, youll be named a top influencer, and youll be featured alongwith others in LinkedIns weekly newsletter.==============================================How to Set Up Your Own LinkedIn GroupsLinkedIn Groups are gatherings of professionals and like-minded peoplebased around a common industry or interest. They give you an opportunity tointeract, network and find leads. You can use them to find people who areinfluential on the site so that you can follow them and grow your network.LinkedIn allows you not only to join but to create groups of your own. This isa great way to use the site to its fullest advantage.Why You Need Your Own GroupStarting your own group is a great way to create a tribe around your product,site or idea. Its a subtle way of advertising what you have to offer. Starting agroup brands you as an expert and leader in your field, and also gains youmore exposure for your profile.If you create a group thats based around your target market, it gives you anopportunity to interact with them and get to know them better. This in turnmakes it that much easier to create and market products that you know theywant. You can find out first hand exactly what your prospects and customerslike.Before you start your own group, join a few groups that are similar to whatyou want to do and see what theyre like. Participate in the conversations as
  • 10. much as possible. This gives you a feel for what they like. It also gives you agreat starting point for your own group. If youre known in a few groupsalready when you start your own, you can announce it in the group and pullsome of its members to yours.Growing Your Group MembershipThere are lots of ways to get members in your group. Start by asking yourcontacts to join. If theyre interested in your business, theres a good chancetheyll be interested in your group. Its nice to start with a foundation of peoplethat you already know.You can also make an announcement on similar groups. Since self-promotionis looked down upon on LinkedIn, its good to lay the groundwork by joininggroups and participating in them first (as mentioned above). You should alsomake sure that your new group offers something of value to the othermembers. Emphasize the benefits and specific reasons theyd want to join.You can grow your group membership faster by offering incentives for groupmembers to recruit others. You can also offer special deals on your products orservices for LinkedIn group members only. Treat them like your email listsubscribers and offer them exclusive discounts.Tips for Encouraging InteractionA major incentive for people to join your group is not only that it offers themvalue but that its active. You can stimulate discussion by asking questions,conducting polls, presenting arguments, seeking opinions, sharing news items– anything you think your group will be interested in. Set up a news feed sothat relevant content is posted automatically.Introduce new content yourself or appoint several group members to act asmoderators. Get them to share links, start discussions and manage the group.This is a great way to make your members more active and it also takes someof the work out of your hands.
  • 11. Listen to Your GroupThe success of your group ultimately depends on how well you know yourmembers and what they like. Remember that your group, although it may beabout your companys products or services, actually isnt about you at all. Itsabout them and how your services benefit them. Ask for feedback and inputand listen to what they have to say.==============================================LinkedIn Recommendations – Why You Need Them and How toGet ThemLinkedIn Recommendations are testimonials from other users that attest toyour professional abilities. They tell others that youre a person worth knowing.On LinkedIn, reputation means everything and recommendations contributein a big way. Everyone on LinkedIn is looking for quality employees, employers,freelancers, and clients, and recommendations are how you set yourself apartfrom the crowd.Why You Need RecommendationsNowadays, Recommendations have become a scratch my back, Ill scratchyours situation. Many people feel that theyve become virtually meaningless.Even though this is so, you still need to have them because a profile with nonelooks strange.To give you an idea of how important they are, some major employers saythey wouldnt consider any applicant with less than 10 recommendations. Itsbecome part of the process of filtering out potential employees. They feel thatthese are the equivalent of references and if you wont bother to get them,youre not serious about your job search.On LinkedIn, self-promotion is looked down upon. Recommendations give youa chance to let a third party tell everybody how valuable you are instead of
  • 12. doing it for yourself. This is the principle of social proof – if enough peopleswear by you, you must do an excellent job. However, this only goes forcredible recommendations and there are fake ones everywhere.Your recommendations differentiate you from others and help to brand you.Some people get jobs solely on the strength of what their connections sayabout them.How to Get RecommendationsIf you wait around for people to write you a recommendation out of thegoodness of their hearts, youll be waiting a while. You really have to go outand ask, and theres nothing wrong with this. Its fairly common practice.Only ask for recommendations from people you really know and have actuallyworked with. Otherwise, youre spamming people. If possible, seekrecommendations from people that are movers, shakers and top influencers.Look for people that are especially active on LinkedIn where yourrecommendation will really mean something. Avoid people who giverecommendations to all of their connections because these wont hold asmuch water.The Personal TouchWhen you ask for a recommendation, its best to do it by phone and not byemail. Make it as real and personal as possible. If phone isnt an option emailis fine, but make it a personalized message. Never send out a template.The best time to ask for a recommendation is right after youve completedwork for someone. This is when your abilities are fresh in their mind and theirtestimonial will reflect that. You can also ask for one after youve done them afavor or after youve recommended them.Your recommendation should be short and concise. It should focus on resultsand value added. Try to avoid ones that say nothing but your most generalcharacteristics. They should mention specific things you did for them and how
  • 13. you helped them.Real Recommendations Are Worth a Whole Lot MoreLike all social media sites, your LinkedIn profile has to be real. With all thefake profiles out there, its important that yours has an authentic touch. Yourrecommendations are the same. Think about this when choosing people to ask.Since its common for LinkedIn users to have a long list of fairly genericrecommendations, if yours is full of recommendations that are real anddetailed, theyll be much more impressive.==============================================How to Create an Effective LinkedIn Company PageIn 2011, LinkedIn introduced company pages.

This gives you expertise points. If you getenough of these, you appear in a list of experts in your niche.The key is to choose questions that are relevant to what you do. A greatstrategy is to choose a topic you recently blogged about. Include a link in youranswer to your blog post. This is an excellent way to drive traffic to your siteand further establish your expertise.Its easy to answer questions about things that you know, but what abouttopics you dont know well? If you dont mind doing a little research, find goodauthority sites in your niche to use as references and answer away. This givesyou a learning experience about topics in your niche as well as getting yourprofile out there for people to see.You can ask questions too.

Do a search on something youve been involved in lately. Forexample, if youve just signed up to Pinterest, look for questions about the site.Youve gained some experience there and your answers can help others whohavent.You can also sign up for notifications. You get notified whenever someone inyour network asks a question, or whenever a question using certain keywordshas been asked. You can subscribe to LinkedIn Answers through an RSS feedand have them sent directly to your Yahoo, Google or Microsoft Outlookaccount.Keep It NaturalBefore you go crazy answering every question you possibly can in your niche,heres a word of warning – practice moderation.

Plan to answer aquestion or two on a regular basis and focus on being helpful.==============================================Getting the Most Out of LinkedIn with Paid MembershipsIts free to create a basic LinkedIn account, but for a little bit of money, youcan upgrade. The site offers premium memberships with many features thatare only available when you pay. Depending on what youre using the site for,these features can make life with LinkedIn much easier and more effective.What You Get with a Paid Membership
  • 17. With a basic membership you can only send messages to people you know. Ifyou want to contact someone outside of your connections, you have to pay touse InMail. This is LinkedIns built-in email platform. Each level of paidmembership gives you a set amount of InMails per month and its a bargaincompared to buying each one separately.Profile Organizer is a premium feature that lets you save and manage profiles.You can organize them into folders, add details and notes of your own, andtrack the changes they make. This feature is especially useful for recruiterswho need to keep an eye on possible employees.Basic membership gives you a set limit of how many profiles you can view.Paid memberships lift the limit so that you can really take advantage of thesites Advanced Search function.You can also find out more about who is looking at your profile. Basicmembership lets you do this but the information you get is limited. When youupgrade, you can see more of their profile information. You also get access tostats that tell you how many searches youre appearing in and for whatkeywords.How to UpgradeLinkedIn gives you several upgrading options and it can be a little bitconfusing. There are four different types of membership accounts. Each hasthree levels that offer progressively more features (more searches per month,more InMails, etc.).There are membership accounts for:  Businesses – Business, Business Plus, and Executive.  Recruiters – Talent Basic, Talent Finder, and Talent Pro  Job seekers – Job Seeker Basic, Job Seeker, and Job Seeker Plus  Sales professionals – Sales Basic, Sales Navigator, and Sales Executive.
  • 18. Each has its own added features custom-tailored to the account type. Forexample, membership accounts for recruiters allow them to search forapplicants with specific profile information. Likewise, job seekers can useadvanced filters to refine their job searches. The plans for job seekers offer aguaranteed response for your InMails. This means that if you dont get aresponse, it wont count as an InMail used.An upgraded LinkedIn membership may sound nice, but dont upgrade unlessyou feel that you really need it. If youre new to the site or you havent used itmuch, use the free profile and explore. See all that it has to offer. Wait untilyoure actively using it and feel that you need more before you upgrade. If youuse LinkedIn first, youll have a better idea of exactly what you need from themembership features.==============================================14 Popular LinkedIn Plugins and AppsApps and plugins enhance the LinkedIn experience for your connections andallow you to do more with your profile.
