How to make your business LinkedIn profile more prominent and drive traffic for your brand?
Make your LinkedIn profile more image-centric:
Visual centric profile enhances your branding and visibility. Images are the first thing people focus on so it is important that you add your own photos or logo while you create your company page. LinkedIn’s rich media tool allows you to easily add presentations, blogs, videos and other media to your business profile page.
An impressive headline can grab the attention of the viewer:
Be creative with the headline, as that is the first point that makes people contacts you. However, make sure that the headline is a brief reflective of your company’s history. This way whenever a potential viewer comes across your profile, they know what details they can acquire from your brand and products.
Give your LinkedIn profile a clean look:
LinkedIn’s clean look provides a snapshot of the members you are searching for and decide with whom you want to do your business. This in turn saves your time and effort to find the prospective clients or business partners. Also your clean business profile highlights a complete portfolio focusing on important features of your products and services. A better engagement with people keeps your visibility and relationship much strong.
Do not beat over bush:
Stop using buzzwords and get creativity showcased in your LinkedIn profile. Pay attention at demonstrating your skills and services rather than playing around with the unnecessary buzzwords. Also it is recommended to use active language. Instead of showing what you are responsible for show how that responsibility delivered the actual result.
This LinkedIn’s new feature is introduced only for the English-speaking members. However, it is expected to be rolled out in other languages as well.
