Leveraging Customer Obsession

What is your company’s approach to customer obsession? Do you have a customer-centric approach or is your emphasis more on ensuring that employees are fully engaged and satisfied with their role in the organization which will, in turn, lead to excellent customer service? On this episode of #SellingWithSocial, Toby and I discuss this topic of customer obsession and how leaders like you can evaluate your approach. While Toby agrees that an organization needs to be focused on serving its customers effectively, he brings up the helpful point that a company can’t be so obsessed with a customer-centric approach that it leads to the detriment of everything else. Make sure to listen to this episode as Toby and I expand on this topic and much more!

The Value of Boots On The Ground

How can the support staff of your organization best serve and complement salespeople in the field? On this episode of #SellingWithSocial, Toby opens up and shares an approach that he’s used in the past and continues to champion. If we want to emphasize an approach that focuses on customer obsession, a good way to do that is to expose as many of our team members to interactions with clients and the perspective of salespeople. This boots on the ground approach can reap huge rewards in helping support staff get an idea of what the client’s needs are while also helping them glimpse the perspective of a salesperson in the field. How can your organization learn from Toby’s lessons and insights? Find out on this episode!

10 thoughts on “15 LinkedIn Profile Optimization Tips to Get Found This 2023”

  1. My LinkedIn account was ranking on the first page for best mommys blog keyword quite a few years back and I didn’t have any idea. While working, I stumbled upon the Analytic section of LinkedIn and saw that most of the visitors are coming from search engine later on I realized that in my profile I’ve used “Mommy’s blog” word a lot of time and that is the reason why it was ranking well on SERP. This is how I came to know about SEO and I was also amazed by the fact that how easy it was to rank for competitive keywords back then. Anyways loved your article and please share more tips on SEO.

  2. There is a lot of value in this article, especially for those looking to improve their visibility on LinkedIn. My favorite of the fifteen tips shared in this article is number nine. I’ve observed that people with custom profile links, seem to get more attention than those who haven’t customized their LinkedIn profile URL. Interesting article, thank you for taking the time to put it together.

  3. I agree with the recommendations, they are a very important part of our strategy on LinkedIn, it can give confidence to potential customers (or leaders when someone is looking for a job).

  4. People shouldn’t underestimate keywords on their LinkedIn profile! This helped potential buyers to find me on LinkedIn more easily when they searched for certain products and/or services. Thanks Viveka!

  5. Thank you for another great blog post. For the alt text and/or naming images, do you mean two to three different keyword phrases as a maximum, like this?

    B2B cybersecurity content marketing writer , technical writing cybersecurity content , cybersecurity technical writer , David Geer

    Or can you add more keyword phrases than this?

  6. All the information is very helpful which can help us to increase our Profile ranking on LinkedIn. Another big interesting article, this blog is very useful for the Optimization of my LinkedIn profile.
