Considering 90% of the members of LinkedIn do not know how to create revenue, here are a few tips:
1) Phone number and address in your contact information is important. I learned many years ago on the internet that you need to make it easy for people to contact you. I even recommend to my clients to place your phone number right under your name. As a result, they don’t even need to be connected to you to call. Email address is also suggested, but you have a limitation on characters in your heading.
2) Make sure the keywords of what you do are also underneath your name. Like “meta tags” for search engine optimization, keywords and key phrases need to be separated by commas. Insert the key words and key phrases down in the summary as well. Your challenge is to make your summary flow for readers.
3) Connections- The higher the number, the better you are. We call it the delta affect. The more 1st level connections you have allow you to see more people in your 2nd level. 1st level are people directly connected to you. 2nd level are people you are not directly connected to but they are connect to people you are connected to.
4) The more complete your profile is, the more likely you will be found.
