LinkedIn revamps its user profiles to help you increase your business contacts

LinkedIn revamps its user profiles to help you increase your business contacts | MarketingHits | Scoop.it

LinkedIn is revamping user profiles on its mobile app, making a big design change as it seeks to help its members, their interests and other details stand out.


“Your LinkedIn Profile is your professional identity of record. It’s also the heart of LinkedIn. Your new profile helps you tell your story to other professionals when they’re looking for you on the go,” the company said in a blog post.


The new profile is certainly more visual. It lists out mutual connections, in addition to basic details like name, employer, job title, etc. LinkedIn explains that the idea is to enable you to get a quick feel for shared interests and connections with a person before you meet them, or indeed connect with them on the service.


Here’s how it looks when you view your own profile, profiles of people you already connected with, and those of people who are outside of your network. (Oops, I just sent Ben an invite… I’m not a heavy LinkedIn user.)

(From the article) : The new profiles are launching on mobile first because the company says that the platform “forces us to innovate and radically rethink, focus and simplify what’s most important” – while mobile also accounts for 43 percent of visits from its users too, LinkedIn said.

Jeffrey Lapin's curator insight, July 28, 4:39 PM

Corporate and branded content gets shared more on mobile than desktops.

 

From Kevin O'Keefe (via Real Lawyers Have Blogs) "Want blog posts shared on social? Design for mobile users" post:

 

"A new Forrester survey of 37,000 consumers found that mobile users are more likely to share a branded post than desktop users. While 28% of desktop users share branded posts that rises to 40% of tablet users and 36% of smartphone users.

 

In addition, almost half (49%) of tablet and 46% of smartphone users engage with corporate content via likes, shares or comments, compared with just 37% of desktop social users."

 

My Takeaway: You need to use responsive design for their blog posts and ensure that it looks good and is eye-catching on mobile devices to maximize that it gets read, liked and shared.

So it is the case that many of us in the SEO world, and in the web marketing world overall, love to run tests on our websites. Of course, there's great software, like Unbounce or Optimizely, if you want to run conversion-style tests, tests that kind of determine whether users perform better through conversion Funnel X or Funnel Y, or if Title X or Title Y convinces more people to buy.
