Most people feel that LinkedIn is the social media platform for professionals. It is a great medium to engage with potential customers and help you grow your business.
Your LinkedIn profile will say a lot about you. It will also show how you present yourself in the professional world. First off, you need a professional-looking profile photo of yourself. Leave the selfie and jump shots on Facebook and Instagram. You also need to provide people with a complete set of information about you, such as: your contact information, past work experience, and other additional qualifications.
Maximize Social Business has an infographic listing 17 must-have features in your LinkedIn profile. Some of them include:
- Letting people contact you – List your email address, links to your Facebook or Twitter profile.
- Use visuals – Feature some of your sample works in forms of videos, presentations, or even Word documents.
- List down all your past jobs – The more the merrier as they say. The more jobs you list, the better way to connect with people from those organizations. Also, this lets employers know more about your qualifications.
