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.
