5 tips for optimally managing your LinkedIn account

5 tips for optimally managing your LinkedIn account

1. Modify your profile. With so many searches done on the network, it is necessary to take care that our LinkedIn profile is composed mainly of “key” words. This will help make it SEO-friendly, that is, it is easy to find by search tools. (SEO is the acronym for Search Engine Optimization, “search engine optimization.”)

2. Change the titles. Make them flashy. A title like “Social Media Manager” is boring, there must be hundreds of thousands with that title on the net. Put something like “Social Media Engager / Active Market Trader / Brand Leader / Incipient CEO”. Let the titles beat you up.

3. Manifest yourself. Do not be afraid to upload your photo. LinkedIn profiles without a photo are useless. Show the world who you are. People will respect you for being authentic.

4. Interact. That will give credibility to your profile. You will know that you are a person who is really immersed in what he does. Do not be afraid. Come on, give it a try. You will see how the interactions you have will be returned to you.

5.- Exhítete. Put videos, links and everything that shows your work. With the new LinkedIn options, if you’re not doing it, you’re staying out. Yes, with professionalism. Make the experience of visiting your profile not boring, but interesting.

Finally, make the others talk. All the recommendations you can get from colleagues and exjefes, will be worth pure gold. Many can be requested via LinkedIn. Put them on your profile for the world to see.
