We all know that LinkedIn is the best platform for anyone looking to establish a professional presence and connect with colleagues or potential employers. Whether you’re trying to promote your company or get head-hunted for a job, you need to make your profile stand out from the crowd. These are the best five ways to increase your visibility on LinkedIn.
4. Link to your other professional social platforms.
Include a link to a Twitter feed you keep exclusively for professional purposes. You want your followers to connect with you on multiple platforms because LinkedIn is all about pulling in as many people as possible. By increasing the number of connections you have, the more visible you are to strangers. You should aim to have the biggest web of contacts you possibly can.
5. Browse the ‘People You May Know’ list.
The ‘People You May Know’ list is LinkedIn’s search engine. The way they come up with suggestions is through connecting mutual contacts, or through matching up certain characteristics, such as where you went to school. Browse this regularly and see who comes up.
Keep connecting with new people and increasing the number of connections you have. This will enable you to appear to a greater number of people.
