You’ve been looking for ways to add value. Look no further.

Here are 10 Tips to help you maximize your sales profile.
1. Upload a professional photo. Think business card. Profiles with photos receive a 40% InMail response rate. Choose wisely.

3. Include your summary and experience. Tell your story!

4. Personalize your LinkedIn web address. Create a url that closely matches your name (e.g. www.linkedin.com/in/kokasexton)

5. Get recommendations. Have people focus on your specific skill sets. Make meaningful comments when recommending others. Think quality, not quantity.

6. Share updates… and share often! People that share 2-5 times a day see an increase in profile views and engagement.

7. Share Files & Presentations. Become a resource for great material.

8. Customize your website links. Add relevant links. Utilize strong calls to action.

9. Add rich media files like blog posts, Slideshare and video. Create a conversation. Alert your networks.
