Are you linked in effectively?

April 19, 2010 at 10:32 pm Leave a comment

LinkedIn is a powerful professional networking tool. Or it can be, if you know how to use it effectively. Meryl K Evans listed 14 useful tips in her blog. There are three that stand out for me:

1. Use the name your clients know you by.

2. Create an effective professional headline.This should be succinct and to the point, yet descriptive enough so that your readers are not left doing the guesswork.

3. Write a summary that highlights your most important business information. This can be a summary of the services or products you offer, a list of your skills, a summary of your biggest achievements, etc. In any case, keep paragraphs short and to the point.
