When working in our own niches, we tend to develop and share our accomplishments within a concentrated grouping of individuals.
We may start to take for granted that everyone will automatically know what we do, the talents we have and the services we offer.
But the fact of the matter is, there is so much noise out there, it's our job to set ourselves apart from and above the cacophony.
The results of doing so can be HUGE!
Whether you are looking for a new job, to create a new product, build distribution networks, make sales or build a new team.
The power to do so is literally at your fingertips!
But you need to put forth the effort to make it work for you and attract the types of people who are looking for EXACTLY what you have to offer (LOVE it when that happens!).
Making small modifications over time can have a major impact!
Here are three action items you can implement today in order to start changing the trajectory of your profile from one that gets lost in the shuffle to one that stands apart from the crowd.
Create a header that matches your web page branding. This guy (Adin) does great work, is very professional and super affordable. Add your contact info right there.
You can set up an exclusive, for LinkedIn only, email address if you like and use a service like Google Voice to assign you a number that can be differentiated from, but directed to your cell phone. Whatever method you choose, the bottom line is to make it easy for people to reach out to you.
Create projects that require a call to action. Do you have a web page where you make an offer or collect email addresses?
If not, you should. These are ongoing projects, are they not?
Create evergreen (always appropriate) offers (reviewing every 3-6 months to modify or update) in the Projects section of your LinkedIn profile in order to help educate people as to what you do and give them an opportunity to reach out or be kept apprised as to what you have going on. Encourage them to connect with you via other social media platforms you are active on as well.
Take time to order your skills and endorsements in ways that best reflect where you are right now and which direction you are going.
For example, I was getting endorsed in areas that are not my current focus and then missing out on my major area of impact.
A quick change to the order of your skills and endorsements can put your main strengths in front of your connections as something to endorse you for.
And you get bonus points for...
LinkedIn is FAR more than a place to store your resume. It is a vast and powerful database with which to differentiate yourself from the crowd!
