5 tips to help you get your social profiles completed

We’ve talked about filling out your social profiles before. We’ve seen many of them that are not complete. So we think some of our readers might still need help. Here are 5 tips to help you get your LinkedIn profile checked off the list.

First up, LinkedIn!

We choose LinkedIn as our example because many of the settings you can change here in your profile are the same on many other sites. Plus, LinkedIn is often someone’s first professional look at you.

Get a Professional Headshot

We cannot stress enough how important it is to have a professional headshot on this platform. We all have excellent cameras on our phones these days, so there is no excuse.

Fix your Cover Photo

Your cover photos are prime real estate on all of your social network accounts. Use this space to brand yourself or your company, explain what you do, or share a call to action.

Current Postion/Title & Company

A lot of people have the wrong information listed. Make sure it’s current and accurate.

Spice up your Headline

The LinkedIn headline should not be a repeat of your title and company. The text here not only helps people find you better through search, but it can provide a first impression about what you have to offer to prospective clients.

Update your URL

LinkedIn defaults to a URL with random numbers and letters. Go into your settings and update your name to have a more professional sharable link and secure your name’s URL.

We hope these tips help spark some ideas and get you to update those social profiles. If you need help or have too much to manage, consider hiring a professional like Unexpected Creative. We can get your profiles in-line and help you control your whole feed and narrative. Contact Us Today!

I’m a geek…And, I’m fine with that. Being a geek is cool these days. Probably because geeks like me are behind the most exciting things happening online. Like a lot of “80s kids,” I was sucked into the world of video games; and at 11, I was obsessed with the technology behind them. In a way, you might say learning how to program in Basic on my Commodore VIC-20 helped prepare me for work I would later do for BMW, Lincoln Center, The Bermuda Department of Tourism and Wells Fargo.
