    It Is Time to Take a Fresh Look at LinkedIn

    By Michael Cohn

    LinkedIn has many wonderful attributes and a ton of capabilities and possibilities. You may have a LinkedIn account but, perhaps, you are not leveraging it as much as you can or should be. If you haven't done so already, the first thing that you should do is to make sure that your LinkedIn profile is complete. Undoubtedly, people will check out your profile and you want to make sure that they are able to get to know you through your profile, want to connect with you, and interact and engage.

    Leveraging LinkedIn to Manage Your Clients
    You may consider your LinkedIn profile a detailed business card. Well, you are correct to a point. However, it is so much more than that and if you are not aware of all (or most) of its potential, it is time for you to become educated about all that LinkedIn has to offer. The fact is that everyone needs to manage their clients, whether you use some sort of sophisticated tool to accomplish that or not. LinkedIn can definitely do that for you. You just need to figure out how to make it work for your business.

    When it comes to online social networks, LinkedIn is the one to use for professionals. You probably have all sorts of valuable connections that you may not even be aware of. One of the great things about LinkedIn is that after a person has created a profile, they are generally reachable at that particular URL for eternity. You will most likely find that to be a really great (and helpful) feature. In fact, not only does that information stay the same but it also gives you other valuable information that you will undoubtedly find useful. It tells you when your LinkedIn connections are having birthdays, work anniversaries, etc.

    You may be surprised at how far a simple birthday or anniversary wish will go in your relationship with the other person when it comes to your solidifying your relationship with that person. You have probably noticed that there are two versions of LinkedIn: one that is free and one that costs money. In some cases, the one that costs money is superior to the free one. However, in the case of LinkedIn, the free version is perfectly acceptable and the chances are really good that you can get everything that you need from the free version without missing anything.

    Turning to your LinkedIn connections for help
    You may experience many times when you have a question that plagues you. You may not have the resources for that particular issue and you are not sure where to turn. Well, LinkedIn can certainly help. If you have a question without an answer, all you need to do is post it to your LinkedIn connections. The chances are really good that at least one or two people will respond to you. You may not get the answer that you are looking for but the responses that you do receive may bring you closer to the answer that you need.

    You will see that people are generally willing to help you if you need them to. All you need to do is ask. Of course, there will be many people who just don't know the answer to your question. However, there will also be many people who can offer their help to you. Having a robust network is a wonderfully supportive thing. You can thank LinkedIn for that.

    Conclusion
    LinkedIn is not only an amazing social network but it is also a wonderful way to manage your customer relationships and it has tremendous capabilities that can really bring your business to the next level. It allows you to connect and stay connected with your valuable online connections. It not only helps you to gather valuable information but it also allows you the ability to make the most of that information and to use it effectively for your business. You should learn about all that it can do and take advantage of all that LinkedIn has to offer.

    A Proper Guide to Gain Maximum Visibility for Your LinkedIn Profile

    By Deepanjan Goswami

    A simple underutilized account will never serve the purpose of the account holder in LinkedIn. Users need to follow simple basic steps to fetch the required attention and visibility for their LinkedIn profiles that make an impressive impact to the visitors.

    1. Basic inputs for the profile: A person's LinkedIn profile is the reflection of his/her professional image online. Hence it is important to fill all the required fields of profile basics to convey a positive personality to others.

    • To make an impressive visual impact the 'display image' must look professional. It is important to upload an image of higher quality, well-lit head-shots of 200*200 pixels.

    • The next important step is to customize the' profile URL' so that people can find you easily. For customizing the 'profile URL' the first step is to click the' Me' icon at the top of the LinkedIn home page and after that select 'View profile'. The user then needs to click 'edit public profile & URL' to the right of their profile page. The next step is to click the 'Edit' icon next to public profile URL and then inserting the name without spaces and then click 'Save'.

    • Another crucial step is to optimize the 'headline' which appears under the name of the profile user as the headline is the most searchable and visible thing. The character limit of this field is 120 and it is important to use relevant keywords that are frequently used by the target audience.

    To add or to make any edit in the 'headline' click on the 'Me' icon at the top of the homepage and select 'View profile'. The next step is to click the 'Edit icon and' then enter new content into the intro dialogue box and then click 'save'.

    • The next very step is to customize the 'contact information' as it rewards the user with more visibility. Click on the 'Me' icon to add contact information and then select 'View Profile'. Click on the 'Edit' icon in the right hand next to Contact and personal info.

    • At LinkedIn, professionals can introduce them and their work and achievements through 'video'. A video is an excellent medium for introduction as it immediately makes a difference with others. One can also upload an introductory video to a host site and then share the link of the video to LinkedIn.

    To add video introduction to the LinkedIn profile an user need to click the 'Me' icon and select 'View profile' and then click the 'edit' icon and then scroll down to the 'media' section. Then paste the link to your video and then click 'add'. Then enter title and description of the video in the media dialogue box and then click 'apply' and 'save'.

    • The next awaiting thing for the user is to earn 'recommendations and endorsements'. A user needs to use high volume search phrases to showcase their skills and ability to get endorsed. The first step to get endorsed is to add skills by clicking the 'Me' icon and thereafter select 'View Profile'. Then add new skills in the skills and endorsement section and then click 'Add'. The recommendation is important in building prospects. To get recommendations, click on the 'Ask to be Recommended link', fill out the field and send your request.

    • The next big thing is to share the qualification certificates, awards, and professional certificates as it is the vital aspect of a LinkedIn profile.

    To add details about qualification, click the '+sign' in the education section. Enter the details in the dialogue box about your school, colleges, and degrees. One can also add a video that is relevant. To add accomplishments or certifications, click on the '+sign' in the accomplishment section and select from the list. One can also enter required details in the dialogue box.

    2. Refining the communication:
    For a LinkedIn profile, it is important to be personable as the user is communicating with the visitor directly. So it is important to write in the first person as if you are speaking directly with the person you are willing to proceed in professional terms.

    LinkedIn users can maximize their profile visibility by contributing articles. Open the 'LinkedIn publishing tools' by clicking on the 'Write an article'. To edit the drafts, click the 'Me' icon and then select 'posts and activity'.

    For more exposure, you can also share your article on other platforms like Twitter by asking LinkedIn editors to feature your articles tweet "tip@LinkedIn editors" along with the link to your article.

    3. Expanding network:
    You can expand your network on LinkedIn by applying several strategies. Use the 'Search' feature to find your target audience or you may also include a link to connect to your e-mail, signature, blog, and website to direct the target audience.

    If you are happy with the list of people in your network send them an invitation by clicking 'Add Connection'.

    LinkedIn also recommends groups for you to expand your network. This professional social site has all kind of groups that will give you a wide exposure to your target audience.

    Start searching for your "Group" by inserting keywords or group name in the search box and click 'search'.

    4. Generate prospective inbound links:
    Importing inbound links to your LinkedIn profile from anywhere on the web will make your profile more credible. If you publish blog or article on any popular site, link it back to your LinkedIn profile. This will increase your profile appearance in the search results.
