Priming Your LinkedIn Profile for Success
This originally aired as a video on my YouTube channel which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/9fyVbjKR1ng
Today I'm going to show you how to make a good LinkedIn profile and share how I grew my LinkedIn profile to over 10,000 followers. It doesn't take long to setup a good LinkedIn profile and it'll really pay off, even in 2019 as more people join the platform.
1. Use a killer headshot. A picture is worth a thousand words...but make sure it is a good one. If you have to spend a few bucks getting it right...even if you have to go to a photo booth.
2. Write a killer headline. My personal preference for the 120 characters that we get for this prime piece of real estate, is to state "how I help people." Don't just use a job title as that can be reflected in the description below.
3. Triple check the profile for accuracy. There is absolutely no way to look unprofessional than to half misspelled words or inaccurate information on your LinkedIn profile. Remember this is how recruiters, colleagues and potential employers are seeing you for the 1st TIME. Make sure you check, double-check and triple-check your profile to make sure it is accurate. Don't use unprofessional email handles and old phone numbers.
Thanks for listening.
