LinkedIn 10 Tips To A Better Profile

  2. 2. 10 Tips To Improve LinkedIn ❖ Update Your Profile Picture ❖ Fill Out Your Page Completely With All the Important Details ❖ Highlight Your Expertise ❖ Create a Call to Action ❖ Publish a Blog Post ❖ Optimize Your Profile for Search ❖ Participate in Groups ❖ Post Consistently ❖ Be Savvy About Who You Connect With ❖ Request Recommendations
  3. 3. Highlight Your Expertise One great way to connect with people is by positioning yourself as an expert in your industry. Others may come to you seeking professional advice and insight. Real relationships can be born.
  4. 4. Create a Call to Action In the summary section, write a concise call to action that explains to people who land on your page exactly what it is you'd like them to do. Maybe you want them to call or email you or visit your site to sign up to your mailing list. Whatever it is, make it clear. (You can’t expect people to read your mind.)
  5. 5. Publish a Blog Post LinkedIn's newest addition to its suite of products and features is a blogging platform that lets users share their expertise and views on industry news. (not available to everyone yet)
  6. 6. Optimize Your Profile for Search You want to stand out on LinkedIn, right? There are hundreds of millions of people searching LinkedIn and your profile should be easily found by the people who are searching for the types of services you provide.
  7. 7. Participate in Groups LinkedIn Groups are one of the site's most undervalued features, says Nicole Williams. "Search for groups where you can find active, inspiring people -- and they don't need to be related to your career, either. Belonging to groups outside your profession, like location based networking groups or hobbies, gives others a fuller picture of who you are when they visit your profile.”
  8. 8. Post Consistently Whether posting blogs you've written or sharing news from around the web, do so often and consistently. The point is to post often enough to keep people coming back to your page. Posting regularly can also help your page's SEO.
  9. 9. Be Picky About Who You Connect With Sometimes it's OK to ignore connection requests. Remember, this isn't Facebook or Twitter. The point of being on LinkedIn is to connect with real professionals. You don't need to have more connections than someone else. This isn't a popularity contest.
