LinkedIn Cheat Sheet: 5 Tips for a Professional Profile - Careerealism

LinkedIn Cheat Sheet: 5 Tips for a Professional Profile - Careerealism | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

Useful post!  I immediately used one of these practical, ]LinkedIn profile tips from Careerealism's career experts to spruce up my profile, and I was already pretty good at it.


Here's an excerpt of their Cheat Shee of 5 Tips for a Professional Profile:


3. Get Recommendations… Lots of Them

Seek them proactively and seek them passively.


  • Proactive recommendation seeking involves reaching out and asking someone to recommend you. 

  • Passive recommendation seeking involves recommending someone, at which point LinkedIn asks them to recommend you back. The latter is actually a bit more effective.



5. Give Your Professional Headline a Boost


Use the “|” to divide your text and create visual breaks.


Example: Which of the following is easier to read?


  • Project Manager Specializing in Business Research and Analysis for Major Corporations


OR


  • Project Manager | Research & Analysis Specialist | Fortune 1000 Business Experience

News:  Enhanced twitter profile pages are currently available to a small selection of brands; they will be rolled out more broadly in the coming weeks and months.

 

An enhanced profile page increases your brand’s Twitter presence by prominently featuring your most important content and visually branding your page.


Your enhanced profile page is completely public — users can view it without joining or logging into Twitter. 


Deb:  This is not unlike the large new banner feature om the new Facebook timeline enhancement.  Is it any surprise this was announced in December 2011?

Nikki Little has shared a great slide deck on being proactive with LinkedIn via identitypr.com.

  

If your clientele is well represented on LinkedIn, via the HubSpot example above, one sample of Nikki's slides, what are you waiting for?

  

Nikki shares examples step by step.

  

My own experience is that LinkedIn has been fruitful and rewarding in building my own client base over the last five years.

  

NOTE:  Nikki Little and I are both on the program at the upcomingSeptember 13th Women's Exchange of Washtenaw Forum 2012, Empower Michigan.

  

I've written more about the upcoming WXW Forum on my other mini-blog, via 

  

  • ...using extrovert, introvert to describe a person is like using our known solar system to explain the universe. It's a way to begin, but there's a lot more out there.  ~  Deb
