Hello and welcome back to Make more, do more weekly tip #83. This week we are covering our series of tips on “Building & Branding your Social Media Cover Pages,” and tip #7 is…
As mentioned before, LinkedIn is basically your online resume for the world to see. So if you’re looking for a job or clients, it’s a great move to invest some time into building your LinkedIn profile.
The first thing you want to do is upload a professional photo of yourself, for others to know who they’re talking to or reading about. You profile pic should be a min of 200 x 200 pixels and a max of 500 x 500 pixels.
The second thing you need to do is write a detailed bio for others to get to know who you are and what you do, and the third thing that LinkedIn asks for is that you fill out your employment history. This makes your work history visible for the world to see, confirming the amount of experience that you have and whom you may have worked for.
The fourth thing that you’re asked to fill out is the education history, so go ahead and brag about the degrees you’ve attained and the honors that you acquired. The next to last thing that you need to input is your website URL to your business’ website. And finally, you can add other social media links such as Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.
