LinkedIn is a powerful tool for building your career. I was asked by my clients to create a product in between the Complete Branding Package and the LinkedIn Profile Overhaul and Improvement product. To meet this need, I created the One on One LinkedIn Review and Personalized Guide/Coaching to help more people be "entrepreneur-ING" and be the boss of their own careers. This product even includes a free copy of The Prof's Guide to Entreprenuer-ING book. More about how this new product came about - More on my LinkedIn coaching product offering.
As a way to celebrate my upcoming one-year since launch anniversary, I decided to release an exclusive offer coupon to my followers, readers and subscribers. I am releasing this more broadly but all future offers will only be sent to those who sign up to learn with me - sign up now below:

LinkedIn is a powerful tool and when I help clients and students be ready for career or just train them to be entrepreneur-ING in their career, I help them develop and utilize their Elevator Value Pitch with the people in their lives, networks and beyond - most importantly through letting it permeate through social media particularly with LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is the key to the strategy of finding the next step for most career people - both new professionals and seasoned executives. You will see more conversions or interviews and find that people will seek you out for potential opportunities more so than other social media platforms - for instance, no one is looking to hire you from your Facebook posts, sorry.
I do say in my books and lessons on brand building that Twitter and Instagram are potentials for opportunities but the only sure thing is LinkedIn. So what are some quick tips to using LinkedIn effectively?
1) Make sure your Elevator Value Pitch is weaved in to your profile - include it in your summary (in bullet point form or short paragraph) and make sure your skills are demonstrated through the job description points you include.
2) Keep in mind, although there are no true "space" constraints on LinkedIn, you still should avoid writing a "book" - having too much dense text is a turn off for most readers.
3) Make sure you share what makes you YOU - if you volunteer and/or are passionate about something professional in nature weave it in to your profile. This can be what makes the difference to getting the call for an opportunity.
4) Ensure your contact information is available and easy to find - this is a simple thing that many people forget to make sure is obvious.
