Here are 8 best practices to help you become a LinkedIn pro:
1) Sell your summary
Write a compelling summary that explains who you are, highlights your business passion and illustrates why people should take notice. Sell your business and yourself!
2) Join the community
Join LinkedIn groups related to your industry and interests. There you can engage in conversations, share content and share your industry expertise.
3) Share industry articles
Read something interesting online? Share content related to your industry so that people begin to trust you as a reliable source of information.
4) Be motivational
You’ll often see business owners sharing motivational articles or images to help inspire creativity and hard work. Share these on your page, too, as they are one of LinkedIn’s most popular trends.
5) Link your accounts
When editing your page, you can connect your LinkedIn to your Twitter, Facebook, business page and other websites. Take advantage of this extra reach.
6) Engage with others
Your LinkedIn newsfeed is constantly refreshing with updates from your connections; make sure you like, comment and share as a means of encouraging others to do the same with you.
7) Promote your achievements
Did your business win an award? Were you mentioned in a local publication? Share the good news with others! LinkedIn also highlights business anniversaries, which is a great time to post about your positive work experiences over the year.
8) Make the most of recommendations
LinkedIn is unique in that it allows you to write recommendations for your connections. Write positive things about people in your network, and don’t be shy to ask for them to recommend you. It’s a great way to build a positive reputation.
