So far we’ve looked at KEYWORDS, HEADLINE, SOCIAL PROOF and your SUMMARY.
Today I want to talk about VISIBILITY.
It’s all very well having a well crafted LinkedIn profile that showcases your expertise and experience and all the social proof in the world.
But that’s no good unless you SHOW UP.
The visibility you get when you show up will make a huge difference to how often you get noticed.
How to show up and get noticed on LinkedIn
Let’s talk specifically about how you need to show up so that you get noticed on LinkedIn (and attract more of the right career opportunities to your profile).
Start commenting and liking other people’s posts. And don’t just write “nice post” or “great article”, write something more meaningful. Add your own ideas or ask a question.
Give recommendations to others.
Write your own posts and articles on LinkedIn. Be inspired by what’s going on in the news. Talk about a challenge you’ve had to tackle. Share new insights you’ve got from a training course.
Reach out and connect with others.
Share articles, podcasts or blogs. Ideally with a short explanation of why you’ve selected that article e.g. what you learned? what you agreed with? what you disagreed with?
How often to show up on LinkedIn
If you’re actively job hunting show up every day. Yes, every day.
It only needs to take 20 minutes a day.
Visibility on LinkedIn is SO powerful.
The more you show up, the more active you are, the more people will see your profile.
Therefore the more likely you will attract opportunities.
