Kim Peterson Stone, CEO CommonSenseHealth.org
It can be intimidating and a bit overwhelming to get started or build your presence on LinkedIn.
But it doesn't have to be.
If you take action on the following three steps, you will be light years ahead of the majority of people who are trying to figure it out on their own or who aren't putting in the effort necessary to build a quality network that will follow you throughout your career.
Keep your profile headline clean, simple and descriptive. Avoid cutsie titles
and wording, such as ...
Dentist (insert additional titles here) at self employed
Engage, Empower, Enlighten
--- (or better known as the “I didn’t know what the Headline box was for” fail)
Raising the bar
What terms/words are your ideal clients/employers searching for?
What do you do, exactly?
Are they looking for Speakers? Engineers? Consultants? Successful Sales Professionals?
In what industry?
Use words that help them find you in a search and tells them exactly what you can do for them.
Be real. It’s not about spin, spam or pushy tactics.
Which would you rather receive? (Names have been altered to protect the guilty...except for Tim's...HE is AWESOME, NOT guilty.)

I noticed you added a new job to your profile and wanted to wish you all the best for your new adventure!
Be visibly consistent. A quality network is not built overnight or with a get rich quick thought process. Post with the intent of lending value. Update your status and participate on LinkedIn with things like …
The platform is complex but the communication that is best received on it is not.
If your focus before you post is how can this be of benefit to others, you will be on your way to building a productive and powerful presence on LinkedIn.
