One of the most powerful features that LinkedIn offers is the ability to “slice and dice” the data in the platform. You can then perform targeted searches that help you get to the right audiences for your needs. Please watch the video below to see various options for performing these searches.
While you can change the order of your current positions, you can’t rearrange the order of past positions. Those will always appear with the most recent position held showing first.
Rearrange current positions. The following video shows you how to do rearrange your current positions.
One of my clients wanted to connect with people who are in the Hospitality industry and wanted to know both a strategy and an approach to do it effectively. Please watch the video below to see how you can do this.
We live in a “short attention span world.” People want things faster. They want to expend as little effort as possible to get things done. Getting invited to connect on LinkedIn is no exception. The easier you make it for others to invite you the more they will.
In the video below, I show you a nifty little shortcut to get more invitations on LinkedIn. You create a link that goes straight to your invite page instead of your profile page – saving your future connections one click and making it easier for them to connect to you.
I received an email this morning asking how to change the Job/Title for a recommendation that was previously given. The good news/bad news about LinkedIn recommendations is that ONLY the person who writes the recommendation can change it. This is good news because it enhances the credibility of the recommendation – i.e. you can’t write/edit the recommendations you receive to reflect only what you want others to see. The bad news is that you need to reach out the person who recommended you and ask them to make the changes themselves.
The video below shows the process on how to do this.
In this video I show you how to export your LinkedIn connections. Why do you want to do this? In one word: Insurance. By exporting your connections outside of LinkedIn, you are insuring yourself against something happening with LinkedIn. After all, they could go out of business tomorrow. Or they could suspend your account.
Another reason why you may want to export your connections is because you have a duplicate LinkedIn account and you want to close it but not lose your connections. In this case, you can export the connections before closing the account, close the account and then re-import them into the new account.
Your connections are a very valuable asset. You have worked hard to build your network and develop relationships. This is one step to protect your investment. I recommend you take this step frequently.
