I only joined Facebook last year but I embraced LinkedIn in 2009. I joined it around the time Jeff Weiner became CEO and it had 46 Million users compared to the 450 Million users it has today. So why did I embrace LinkedIn well before I joined Facebook? I liked that its premise was a professional networking platform and it provided a way to stay connected and informed.
Over the last 2-years I've used LinkedIn more than ever, especially considering our business, Strategic Social Profiles focuses on creating social media profiles and LinkedIn is a key platform we utilise. I'd set a client up on LinkedIn and they were keen to know how to make the most of their newly created profile. So I provided them with an introduction to LinkedIn, let's call it a tailored LinkedIn 101 session.
As LinkedIn has so many incredible features I decided the best starting point would be to share with my client the top 3-things I think are fantastic about LinkedIn. I've decided to share with you a few tips for success to help you make the most out of LinkedIn.
My top 3-things about LinkedIn:
This list doesn't even scratch the surface of how to make the most of LinkedIn. I've seen posts of 100 tips however when you're new to something it's better to start with the things that will make a difference. These handy tips are just a few of the things I think are fantastic and I hope inspire you to get excited about how LinkedIn can help you with your profile, build your business or get that next job.
