New LinkedIn Profile Layout Calls For Careful Profile Set Up
LinkedIn has been going through lots of changes and enhancement recently. Besides offering company pages for everyone, it is also rolling out the new LinkedIn profile for individual professionals.
You don’t have to do anything to get the new LinkedIn profile. You can request to be given the profile earlier and you will be put in a queue LinkedIn is rolling it out in stages to the different account holders.
While the layout has changed significantly and some applications will no longer be supported, with the new profile the importance of setting up an effective profile is still and ever more important.
I was a little disappointed to find out that I can no longer feed my blog posts to my LinkedIn homepage. But I get to keep the slideshare application since LinkedIn has bought over slide shares. With the new design it is more important to fill up your profile effectively so you can attract new contacts and build relationships.
Using LinkedIn Correctly? Occasionally I still get invites by people on LinkedIn who do not have a photo and who have no write up on their profile . And 98% of the invites is sent using the generic message provided by LinkedIn. And many times the new contacts do not respond to the “thank for connecting” message I send back.
It is also not unusual to receive long sales pitch from new connections who have not taken time to build relationships. So I thought I will do the free training on LinkedIn again. LinkedIn is not a place to collect emails for spamming. It is a Professional Networking site.
In the video here I will show you what my free LinkedIn training will help you achieve. You will see the old LinkedIn profile layout, but the psychology of how an effective LinkedIn profile still holds true. In fact the new profile forces you to think about your write up and your copy. So here’s a preview video that tells you what you can expect from the 60-minutes Free online video training on LinkedIn.
