Every year schedule time to review and update your LinkedIn profile. When someone does a Google search for your name or industry, your LinkedIn profile may come up. Be sure it shows you at your best.
Take some time to build deeper relationships with your LinkedIn network. I make it a goal to reach out to connect on the phone with someone in my network each week so we can learn more about what another, what we do, and how we can support one another.
Use your existing network to find new connections and ask for an introduction. Explain to your connection why you want an introduction.
Take note of what your network is talking about on LinkedIn so you can participate in discussions and share your expertise. Write article and share to groups as appropriate. Before you share your articles to groups, make sure you’ve participated in the group in a meaningful way and commented on other member’s posts.
