Here are my 5 top tips to enhancing your LinkedIn Profile


1.     Write in 1st Person

Tell people a little about who you are and what you do but most importantly what makes you different and how you can help them! Speak directly to people, who is your audience and what are their problems? How can you help them?


2.     Tell People what to do and get them visiting your website

A call to action at the bottom of your summary makes it easy for people to visit your website – A clear call to action makes shares and website traffic much more likely.


3.     Use a clear and professional profile image

It’s a fact that your profile is over 10 times more likely to be clicked on with a professional photo. Holiday snaps, selfies and bad quality images have no place on this professional platform.


4.     Use Attention Grabbing Graphics to Stand Out

Make sure your banner and photo are captivating and enticing so that people click through to your profile.


5.     Ask you clients and previous colleagues to give you written testimonials.

LinkedIn endorsements are fab however nothing beats a testimonial written with feeling and conviction. Simply email them a link to your profile and ask for the testimony.


These simple tips can help transform your LinkedIn profile from average to amazing in very little time.
