Get Linked

LinkedIn is a funny one in social networking terms. It’s a serious player for sure. It is arguable to say that most people underestimate what the site can achieve. Most just use it as a job seeker tool and some where to store the CV. It is far more that that, and I recommend you spare a little time, in order to get some of the benefits that LinkedIn has to offer.

I thought it might be useful to outline some of the key features you may not have seen, when working with LinkedIn.

So here goes with my top tips list!

1. Companies Page

Did you know you can have a company page on LinkedIn? You are forbidden from doing this on personal pages, but LinkedIn has realised that capturing and promoting info can improve engagement and knowledge sharing.

2. Video

You can now add video to LinkedIn profiles, which always helps in enriching your content. Most of you will have some promo videos. Why not get them out there so the world can see them?

New post on BizNetworkGuy tonight. Looking to cover the good the bad and the Ugly on LinkedIn. Hopefully you will learn a couple of new tricks..
