Today's social media quick tip is about how to save your LinkedIn profile as a PDF.
There are many uses for this feature. As an example, I look at my friend Christina Dave's profile. Let's say Christina and I don't know each other and I'm about to go and meet her or go to a workshop and she's going to be there and I want to know more about Christina. I'm going to review her profile, but would like to print it and bring it with me so that I can read through it before I get out of my car. Maybe I want to keep a file of PDFs of different connections for different purposes.
In the video I show you where you can do this. There's a drop down list where you can click save to PDF. Another box will pop up, and you'll be able to save. You may just want to keep a file for referral partners, or potential employees, or on your competitors.
It's a good way to help you organize this information. You can organize it within LinkedIn, but if for whatever reason you're going to be somewhere that you want a hard copy, or you want to keep a hard copy on a computer file somewhere, it's really, really easy to save your contact's information as a PDF.
You don't even have to actually be connected to people for this to work.
Give it a try and see if you find it helpful to have these PDFs handy for your reference.
