As a business owner, there are Two Primary reasons to optimize your LinkedIn profile.
1. Inbound Marketing
When you are engaging on the LinkedIn platform, you are a billboard for yourself. Optimizing your headline (the line that appears next to your headshot when you post) will draw people into your profile … but what will they see once they get there?
What you want is for them to be intrigued by what you provide. Your profile should be readable, grammatically correct, and keyword-rich.
2. Search Engine Optimization
Especially if you offer a service that individuals will look for (e.g. social media specialist, business coach), you want to make sure your profile is optimized for keywords.
Your Summary and Current Experience sections are weighted higher than the other parts of your profile, so it’s important they are keyword-heavy and easy to read.
My LinkedIn profile now reflects my new business and I have a strategy that I feel will result in some leads from LinkedIn. I have been showing up in some searches. I feel confident that I will get leads from LinkedIn once I implement the strategy that you outlined for me. I also feel that my profile gives me credibility.
My step-by-step process is as follows:
|I will look over your existing LinkedIn profile to get a better idea of your job history and professional background.|
|We will talk over the phone so I can understand your overall objective. What are you hoping to achieve with your profile?|
|You will receive an initial draft: a first-person, optimized LinkedIn profile that showcases your strengths, passions, and objectives as a professional.|
|Once you have approved the copy, I will plug it into your LinkedIn profile with optimum settings and provide next steps for marketing yourself!|
