Take 10 with LinkedIn

Have you checked out our latest Pro product line, the Take 10 mini-webcasts? If you haven't yet, take 10 minutes (get it?) and snack on one.


A great choice, in fact, would be the latest: Take 10: Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile in 11 Easy Steps, piping-hot from the oven today.

You know that LinkedIn is a network with a specific purpose: to get business done. Perhaps the most important place to begin is your own profile, because having a strong presence should increase your chances of being found when others are searching for your skills.

And, of course, once they find your profile they should have enough of the right information to determine whether you are the person they should start a business relationship with.

I love how this LinkedIn mini-webcast by Jason Alba shows you, in one quick pit stop, how to create a LinkedIn profile that is both powerful and compelling and makes a strong impression on the viewer.

And to make it even easier on you, each Take 10 comes with a one-page summary handout that recaps the recording (saves time on note-taking).

Listen to the latest, or the others, which you can find at Take 10: How to Add Your SEO Keywords to Your Website Content and Take 10: How to Select Your Keywords for SEO Using a Free Tool From Google.

Still hungry? We have *lots* more full-length webinars where these came from! Stuff yourself silly!

Thanks for stopping by—see you next week!
