Even a complete profile with a well-composed list of accomplishments, a professional headshot and numerous recommendations can be improved upon.
There are a number of ways to creatively improve your LinkedIn profile, with five notable tips being:
1. Create a Public Profile Badge
Searching for profiles on LinkedIn can be a difficult pursuit due to the sheer number of them. Take into account similar names and fields of occupation, and it could be an endless pursuit. As a result, one of the most important tips for improving your LinkedIn profile’s reach is to promote it beyond LinkedIn itself.
An easy, effective way to do this is to create a LinkedIn public profile badge. Accessing this page while logged into LinkedIn will result in a variety of button sizes and accompanying HTML codes.
These can be easily inserted on any website or blog so visitors can more easily find your LinkedIn page. A public profile page is the best way to improve your LinkedIn profile’s reach if you run a blog or website.
2. Leverage Plugins
The “Follow” plugin is especially useful for sites, as it provides visitors the ability to add you on LinkedIn with a single click. You can customize this and other plugins by language and vertical/horizontal settings.
For businesses, the “Company Profile” plugin provides a quick and reliable summary of the business’s size and origin story. As a conveniently sized widget, it’s a quick and immersive tool to acquaint new readers with the business at hand.
