Would you like to make the most of LinkedIn? Then you are in luck because today we bring you three tips to help you get more profile views and leverage the potential of this must-have networking tool.
One of the easiest ways to get your profile noticed on LinkedIn is by being more participative. Every “social action” such as liking the posts of others or writing comments, helps you become more visible. Also, don’t forget to post industry-relevant content that you find interesting or compelling. This will set in motion a virtuous circle of engagement that will send your profile views through the roof.
Join the Right Groups
Joining a relevant group is a tried-and-true method for getting more views on LinkedIn. If you are wondering how to join a LinkedIn group, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Just type in the LinkedIn search bar the keywords more relevant to your area of expertise (for example “HVAC,” “Engineers,” or “Catering”) and then refine your search by clicking on the “Results” tab on the results page. Pick the group you like the most, click or tap on the “Request to join” button, and wait for your request to be accepted by the administrators of the group.
Add a Profile Photo
If you haven’t done so, add a photo to your LinkedIn profile, and make sure it shows you, not your pet or an object. Think of your LinkedIn profile as a dynamic online CV that evolves with your experience and your online activity. Would you use a picture of your dog or your garden on your CV? Chances are that the answer is “no.” The same applies to your LinkedIn profile. Use a high-quality headshot that projects a professional image, just like you would on your actual CV. The effort is well worth it—according to LinkedIn’s data, users with a profile photo obtain 21 times more profile views, and nine times more connection requests.
