The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile

The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile | Techi Talk : non-techi stuff that techies can love | Scoop.it

...Before we jump into these recommendations, let me make one more point perfectly clear. These are not necessarily recommendations for the perfect LinkedIn profile if you're looking for a job. I am writing this from my own perspective, as someone who is using their LinkedIn profile to connect with influencers, partners or prospects. I already have a business and I am counting on LinkedIn to help me grow that businessand reach more of their nearly 200 million active monthly users.

 

All of the recommendations below are just that, recommendations. Take 'em or leave 'em however you'd like. Each can be implemented by going to LinkedIn, logging in, clicking on Profile in the top menu and then clicking on the greyEdit button. This will put your profile in edit mode, and you'll be able to change anything you need to. You may also want to take advantage of LinkedIn's suggestions and recommendations by clicking on the blue Complete My Profile button. LinkedIn will ask you a series of probing questions designed to get your profile even more complete....

The Downside of Too Much Information for Businesses

The Downside of Too Much Information for Businesses | Techi Talk : non-techi stuff that techies can love | Scoop.it
Susan Fisher's insight:

Too much information has gone well beyond being a  cute catchphrase  to being a simple but troubling fact of life.  


Most people feel overwhelmed and inadequate in the face of the amount of stuff that there is to read, sort and keep. This is one of the first pieces I have seen that systematically analyses the damage to businesses  - and the people who think in them.
