Full disclosure: There are many ways to communicate and spend your time on LinkedIn, whether sharing content, communicating messages about a new job posting, etc.
What Is LinkedIn?
It’s a modern-day Facebook, allowing users to offer their services to connections, get inside looks into data on career fields, comment, write and share articles, and visit job listings to develop their future careers.
Why You Should Use LinkedIn
For those that don’t use social media or the internet, you might wonder if it’s worth creating a LinkedIn account. We’re here to tell you that it is.
People might consider other people’s employment backgrounds and compare themselves or feel they don’t have the audience to communicate as they have with Facebook or Twitter.
Create Posts To Generate LinkedIn Connections
Once you’re used to commenting on other LinkedIn members’ posts, it’s time to write your own.
The #1 way to communicate is by posting updates. How many you post is up to you, but we recommend at least one a day.
It’s better than posting once a week.
For motivation, picture this: One of the best connection requests you can receive is when a person reaches out saying they enjoy the content you post.
It’s best to spend approximately an hour each day sharing, commenting, and engaging with your connections.
If you tell your friends this, their faces register surprise, most likely.
But trust us when we say anyone, regardless of career field (teaching, biology, entertainment industry), can benefit from this fact.
"Like" Other LinkedIn Members' Content
To simply click the “like” button on other posts takes very little effort and can improve your following and connections.
Liking articles and posts will suggest you’re interested in what most people have to say. Whether or not your expertise lines up with others is irrelevant.
Communicating through likes can go a long way when trying to connect with others regularly.
Many existing LinkedIn groups have thousands of active users, which means you have instant access to a wide range of like-minded people.
Alternatively, you can start your group and choose a topic for the discussions (again, keep it professional.)
LinkedIn can be a handy platform for marketing small businesses and making new contacts in your industry.
It provides a more professional environment than most other social media platforms.
Optimize Your Profile
Complete your profile to draw interest and connections, displaying who you are as a professional.
Include a description on your profile talking about who you are and what skills you attribute to your field.
If you wonder what counts as professional and what does not, remember: There’s no fine line between writing something casual and something professional.
