Customize Your LinkedIn URL
• Example: https://www.linkedin.com/in/barbaraoneillmoneytalk/
• Looks more professional than a random string of numbers
Two Easy Steps:
• Click on “Edit Public Profile and URL”
• Enter a customized URL (NO spaces, symbols, or special characters); if the URL
is already “taken,” you will be prompted to retry with a new name.
Getting Started With LinkedIn
• Go to https://www.linkedin.com/
• Set up a unique username and password and start account
• Search for/invite connections
• Locate the “Start a Post” box and post content (3,000 character limit)
Content to Share on LinkedIn
Articles that you write
Articles written by others
Informative video clips
Professional accomplishments
Questions for your connections
Post Content
Regularly
• The objective is to be visible
and valuable to others
• Provide valuable links and
resources
• Celebrate achievements
periodically
• Consider posting at least 3
times a week
• Create an impression that you
are an active and productive
professional
Consider a Content Calendar
Examples:
• Blog posts/articles
• Polls/poll results
• Videos
• Podcasts
• Question of the week
Aim for 500+
LinkedIn
Connections-
It Shows You Are a
“Serious Player”
Similar to friends on Facebook and
Followers on Twitter
The more connections you have, the
more likely you are to be found by
colleagues, recruiters, and people
interested in what you do
The best connections are people
that you know personally
Holy Grail: 500+ connections (the
highest number that LinkedIn
reports)
Inviting and Accepting LinkedIn Connections
Default Connection Message
Personalized Connection Message
Which person would you most likely connect with?
Accepting
LinkedIn
Connection
Requests
Do you know
the person?
If not, do
they tell you
how they
know you?
Do you have
things in
common?
Are they
trying to
“pitch you”
in the
request?
Engage With Your Connections
• Avoid pure “broadcasting”
• Like, comment, and share
• Ask questions
• Compliment others
• Provide useful information and links
• “Work out loud”
Visuals Increase Engagement!
Types of Visuals for LinkedIn Messages
Stock images
Personal
photos
Hand drawn
sketches
Microsoft
PAINT graphics
Canva
graphics
PowerPoint
jpeg images
Photo collages
Charts, tables,
infographics
Professional-
looking videos
LinkedIn Messaging
LinkedIn Premium
• Four tiers for job seekers
($29.99 to $59.99 per
month)
• Higher costs for sales
professionals and
recruiters
How to Stand Out on LinkedIn
• Professional high resolution headshot and background banner photo
• Eye-catching headline below your name
• Interesting career summary (about 1,000 characters- not 2,600)
• Details about education and career experience
• Customized URL
• 500+ connections
• Recommendations and skill endorsements
• Regular activity (at least 3 times a week)
• All-Star profile rating from LinkedIn
