Creating a Killer Profile
Profile
5 LinkedIn Profile Tips
Keywords in your profile
• Search engine optimization is a key element of your
LinkedIn profile.
• Add specific keywords such as searching for like
'social media manager' or 'website designer.’
• Also, scatter the important keywords organically
throughout your profile.
• Refrain from using any adventurous overused terms
like ninja, guru, maverick or superhero.
What do you want to be seen as?
• What's your personal brand about?
• Are you an expert in social media marketing? Or a
freelance writer?
• Make sure your headline and personal tag accurately
depict who you are, as well as aligning your personal
brand across your profile and resume.
Tell us your story
• Everyone loves a good story, what's yours?
• How did you get where you are today?
• Find a way to explain that concisely in a way that
makes you look interesting and motivated.
• Do you have a plan for where you want to get to?
Use a professional profile photo
• First impressions matter and your cover photo sends
a strong message about who you are.
• Make sure you have a professional looking photo to
compliment your profile.
Use your personal profile link
Using this personal LinkedIn page helps strengthen
your personal brand with prospective employers and
shows you have some sense of what you're doing
online.

Ringing Endorsements
Endorsements
• Recommendations are dead, long live
Endorsements
• Endorsements are a simpler way for users to
recommend your work
• Instead of writing a paragraph or two, a user can
just click “endorse” to recommend a certain skill or
expertise you have listed on your profile
• Tip: Make endorsements reciprocal

3 Secrets of Thought Leadership
1. Timely Content
2. Audience Relevance
3. Forward Thinking
Source: http://blog.clarity.fm/become-a-thought-leader-on-linkedin/
Timely Content
• Here’s the simple definition of timely content; it’s
something your audience can use NOW.
• Whether it’s something that can help them with an
immediate situation or something which can
prepare them for tomorrow’s challenges.
• Timely content is a gift to your audience.
Audience Relevance
• Thought leaders know how to take any piece of
information and make it relevant to their audience.
• This is why story telling is so important.
• It allows your audience to be captivated through the
story, but still delivers a powerful and relevant
message.
Forward Thinking
• Forward thinking is the foundation of thought
leadership.
• It’s the ability to distill information through your past
experiences and gut instinct, which allows you to
make predictions on the future.
• But forward thinking also requires risk. You’ll be
walking down an uncharted path filled with haters
and naysayers. But stick with your vision and your
gut if you know it’s the right thing to do.
How to Become a Thought Leader
1. Perfect the Profile
2. Get Published
3. Create a Deck (i.e. – SlideShare, video)
4. Make It Official
Influencers
