Developing ways to promote your LinkedIn brand will uniquivocally enhance your credibility in the LinkedIn universe. But, what are these methods of promotion?
Look no further:
Conducting yourself shyly will not get you anywhere when it comes to LinkedIn promotion. Let your users know what you feel about topics, and try to create engagement by asking questions. Ever since I started conducting myself transparently, my business ventures have increased dramatically.
Researching prospects and current clients can be paramount to attaining clients, and retaining clients. Do your investigation and I guarantee it will pay off.
3. Expand Networking Opportunities
Degrees, diplomas, masters degrees are the solution to attaining jobs? Not necessarily. Expanding your network and developing relationships seems to be the way of the world now. Do not miss out.
On your LinkedIn profile is an “accomplishes” section where you can list all of the substantive things you've done for yourself and your clients. This is a great way to build authority and credibility.
Smart entrepreneurs have been taking advantage of the video boom that has taken off the past four years – so please do not get the last one to get into this. Video marketing is taking off ladies and gentlemen.
6. Expand Beyond Your Profile
Joining LinkedIn Groups is a great way to converse with individuals that are interested in what you're interested in. Also, you usually can build a much more personable and long-term relationship by networking in LinkedIn Groups.
7. LinkedIn Profile Domination
Maximizing your LinkedIn profile in facets like SEO optimization and quality content is one of the most critical components to your LinkedIn profile domination.
8. Execute This Thing Called Networking
Networking a few minutes every day is extremely beneficial to expanding your connections. If you're bored, network. If you have free time, network. It will pay off long-term, trust me.
9. Networking Among Your Network
Connecting with users in your network as consistently as possible is a fantastic method when it comes to maintaining relationships. You like it when your friends reach out to you to go get a cup of coffee right? This applies to networking with fellow users on LinkedIn.
10. Be A Marketer
The “showcase” function on your LinkedIn profile is one of the best ways to really show your clients and or prospects what you're made of. Impress them by building an impressive portfolio.
11. Amplify and Repeat
Need more users on your LinkedIn connections list? Do not hesitate to reach out to users you may not know but that have similar interests as you.
12. Giving Back
13. Be Social
Building authority can be down a variety of ways. Although, probably one of the best ways is to comment on other's content like their blogs and conversations.
14. Valuable Information Delivered Straight To Your Door
LinkedIn Pulse is LinkedIn's built in function that publishes news stories. Staying in the loop on LinkedIn is always beneficial. Need a conversation starter? Look no further than LinkedIn Pulse.
15. Ask Back
Remember what I said on # 12 where should you give out endorsements and recommendations and hopefully you'll get the favor returned? Well, sometimes users are extremely busy or are too lazy to return the favor. Do not hesitate to ask them – especially if you've worked for them and have done a good job.
16. Profile Picture
Your profile picture is the first thing users see when looking at your profile. Do not make the rookie mistake of not getting a professional picture taken for you.
17. Research Competition
Do you ever wonder what your competitors are doing on a daily basis? Are they executing new strategies? Did they achieve a big project from a reputable client? Go on their profile and look around here and there – just to make sure you know what you're up against (and what you might have to change to gain the edge.)
18. Start the Conversation
Ever wondered why there has not been a group for a specific topic you're interested in? Instead of waiting for someone to come along and do it, just start the conversation yourself. Not only you will be an authority figure on this topic, you will meet new individuals who are interested in what you're interested in. Networking 101.
19. Create Value For LinkedIn Users
If you want to be known as an authority figure or build credibility to your business, do not publish sub-par content. If you are not a excellent writer – hire one that is. Always publish excellent content, and do not waste peoples' time.
20. Get Your Thoughts Known
LinkedIn is a great way to create content and share it with other like-minded users. Maybe you want to take it a step further and start a blog. Not only it creates more exposure for you, but it produces loyal fans that will be with you every step of the way.
