Last month, professionals were joining LinkedIn at a rate of two new members per second. To be effective on LinkedIn, you need to stand out from the crowd. But how?
Here are four simple strategies:
- Optimize your LinkedIn profile to maximize your presence by using keywords throughout your profile.
- After you make major profile changes, check your privacy settings to ensure that your name, photo, headline, and status appear in the streaming Updates and scheduled LinkedIn emailed updates.
- Get active! Keep your name in front of connections with every update, status change, group participation, and other activity with your profile.
- Stay active! Schedule 5 minutes of “LinkedIn” time 2-3 times a week for maximum traction.
