How to Improve Your LinkedIn Profile and Presence [Infographic]

by   |    |  4,979 views

You have only a few seconds to make a good impression with your LinkedIn profile. Here's how to create a profile that immediately captivates your audience.

Be consistent with your name, suggests the following Quill infographic: "Match your LinkedIn account name with the name you use on your business cards, email signature, and resume."

Also, add a professional photo. "Your photo should reflect your current age and should be a head-on picture of mostly just your face without a very distracting background," states Quill.

Moreover, use simple language and avoid buzzwords. Don't describe yourself as a ninja, wizard, or guru. Good words to use include "organizational," "motivated," "dynamic," and "extensive experience."

To find out more about creating a LinkedIn profile that gets positive attention, check out the infographic.

    Awesome find from Quill Veronica! Marketers should really take more advantage of their LinkedIn profiles. One mistake we see them make very frequently is simply making their profile a clone of their resume, which kind of misses the purpose of both the social network and the resume itself. It's something I've written to marketers about in the past: https://marketproinc.com/candidate-advice/2015/07/resume-linkedin-social-me.... Would love to discuss more if this topic is popular with the community; let me know!
