LinkedIn is the platform to be on to promote yourself as a professional individual and/or your business! Here are our top 5 LinkedIn profile tips to help you get noticed!
Make your LinkedIn profile picture STAND OUT!
Yes, I know, you’ve probably heard this a million times before, but it’s so TRUE!
Get yourself a QUALITY LinkedIn profile picture! Make sure you have a plain background, wear an outfit that you would perhaps wear for work, or for an interview and get snapping! Make sure the image is sharp and centered correctly. Have fun with the background! It could be branded, it could have bright colours! Show some of your personality, whilst remaining professional!
Your headline doesn’t have to be just your job title!
Your headline description can be more than just your job title. What do you do? How do you help? What does your service provide? Think of these questions and then let it reflect in your headline. HOWEVER, do not let it be too long because you want to appear in search results!
Hey, you need to be an All-Star!
You need that ALL-STAR status on LinkedIn, WHY? Because by having that all-star status you are more visible! Fill in all the details, produce a brilliant summary telling your story and get posting!
Engagement is key!
Like, comment and engage with your audience. Don’t be one of those people that scrolls and reads without engaging! By engaging with people’s posts you’re starting a conversation. Furthermore, why not endorse people for their skills? You’ll most likely find that they will return the favour!
Create and share relevant content!
Publish interesting content that starts conversations! Present your skills, knowledge, advice or even tell stories (real ones – of course). Engage and grow your network and you will get noticed!
