  1. 1. LINKEDIN SCHITZOPHRENIA What to do when you have too many LinkedIn Accounts
  2. 2. The dreaded pink warning <ul><li>Have you ever received this message: </li></ul><ul><li>You are not the intended recipient of this message </li></ul><ul><li>If so, you likely have more than one profile on </li></ul><ul><li>LinkedIn. </li></ul><ul><li>The result being, you can’t get anything done. Can’t </li></ul><ul><li>edit, can’t invite, can’t give or get recommendations. </li></ul>
  3. 3. There is a Solution <ul><li>So how do you get rid of those extra pesky </li></ul><ul><li>schizophrenic profiles? First of all, make sure you </li></ul><ul><li>have them. </li></ul><ul><li>If you can get into a profile, do a search on your name and see how many times you show up (not just someone with the same name as you.) </li></ul><ul><li>Sign into LinkedIn using all the different email addresses you think you might have (hopefully you’ll remember your passwords). If you are able to sign in to more than one account then you have LinkedIn Schizophrenia </li></ul>
  4. 4. Getting rid of the “bad” voices <ul><li>1.So first you want to sign into the “bad” profiles. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>2.Then you want to open ACCOUNTS AND SETTINGS on the top right of the screen. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>3.Under PERSONAL SETTINGS, open CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>4.Then choose “I have a duplicate account” and continue. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Don’t delete the wrong account! <ul><li>Be sure you VERIFY the correct account. </li></ul><ul><li>DON’T delete the account you want!!! DO </li></ul><ul><li>DELETE the secondary or tertiary accounts. </li></ul><ul><li>And remember, you will be able to add those </li></ul><ul><li>email addresses to your primary account </li></ul><ul><li>later on (so this doesn’t happen again). </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>5.Once you have closed all of your extra accounts, go into your primary (and hopefully your only remaining) profile and once again go into PERSONAL SETTINGS. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Adding ALL your email addresses <ul><li>6. Now you will want to go to EMAIL ADDRESSES and add all your functioning (and even past) email accounts. Add ALL email addresses that anyone anywhere anytime might try and contact you by. The reason you want to do this is so LinkedIn knows that from now on, any invitation or communication - no matter which address it is sent to - will be directed to your Primary Profile account, and LinkedIn won’t be creating extraneous accounts for you. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>7. Once you have picked your primary account, hit “MAKE PRIMARY”. Then “SEND CONFIRMATION MESSAGE” to all your other email addresses. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Remember to confirm <ul><li>8.At some point you’ll have to go to Outlook (or whatever email service you use) and accept and the confirm email confirmation messages LinkedIn sends you. This should take care of that pesky: “You are not the intended recipient” message. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Fini! <ul><li>So that’s it! Now you can put all your effort </li></ul><ul><li>into creating a kick ass profile and building your </li></ul><ul><li>network. For questions about how to create a kick </li></ul><ul><li>ass profile or how to build a powerful strategic </li></ul><ul><li>network, contact me: </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
