Improve Your LinkedIn Experience Using These Tips
- Use a professional photo.
- Join up to 50 groups based on your industry. Find interesting groups based on your industry so that others will learn about you and your business.
- Post discussions in groups to position yourself as someone who is an authority in your industry. However, make sure that the discussion you’re posting is interesting for the group, not promotional. Finally, join threads and make other feel that you are part of the community.
- Get recommendations and endorsements. You can ask someone or your circles to recommend you. Also, you can recommend them, and then LinkedIn will ask them to do the same for you.
- Accept invites, but do not invite everyone. When inviting, invite those from your business area or from your city if you’re trying to build your business locally.
- Diversify your connections. You don’t have to network within the same age group, for instance.
- Last but not the least is to update your profile on a regular basis. If you have a new job, update it in your profile. If you need help with your LinkedIn profile, get help from a professional.
