Get the most out of LinkedIn

We all know how important networking is to a business, connecting with like-minded business professionals can be very powerful for businesses and professionals alike.

LinkedIn, the business-oriented social networking service, is a great tool which has really taken off in the last couple of years with both businesses and professionals getting involved with the site. It can be a very powerful instrument for businesses of all sizes if utilised well, whether you’re looking for new business opportunities, suppliers or employees. Her are a few simple tips to ensure you are making the most out of the site.

  • Keep updated - it's vitally important that your profile is a true reflection of you and your current professional status. Make sure all information is up to date with relevant roles, experience and skills. Out of date profiles don’t give a good first impression.

  • Profile picture - the all-important profile picture! The best kind of shot to use is a professional head and shoulder shot. It’s been proven that people are more likely to connect and interact with a person with a professional trustworthy photograph, it may sound obvious but it’s surprising how many don’t do it. The key word for this one is keep it professional – no boozy holiday shots!

  • Join relevant groups – LinkedIn is great for meeting likeminded businesses and professionals in your industry, this is your opportunity to join relevant groups and conversations. It is a great way to keep up to date with useful industry news, information and comments.

  • Be clear what you want to get out of the network – is it suppliers, new business a new job or new employees? Make sure your profile reflects this, whether it’s a business or personal profile.

  • Get endorsed – third party endorsements are highly influential when people are looking at your profile. The more endorsements the better.  

  • Be selective - when building your network it’s important to be selective, only connect with people you know, currently work or study with, or people you may want to work with in the future. In this case it’s definitely a case of quality over quantity
