Two Ways to Grow Your LinkedIn Connections and Visibility
Growing your network on LinkedIn and building genuine relationships with those people is an effective way to earn more business. To increase your visibility on the platform, act on these two tips:
1. Update your LinkedIn Profile to help prospective clients, instead of using it to serve you as a resume.
The trainees in the Selling with LinkedIn Workshop for Conversica were provided with LinkedIn Profile Makeovers. After the makeover, Charles said that he received many more views of his Profile.
Combine that with the tips and tricks he learned from Kurt Shaver and Mario Martinez Jr. during the digital selling training, and he has what he needs to not only attract more visitors but also to start a conversation and engage them. Hint: you can start by leveraging your LinkedIn headline!
2. Ask for LinkedIn Recommendations.
Having more than a small handful of Recommendations on your LinkedIn Profile gives you credibility. If a LinkedIn User comes to your Profile and sees multiple Recommendations, they will feel a sense of trust for you and your work. Vengreso CEO Mario Martinez Jr. recommends a minimum of 30.
You should already be connected with current and previous customers – if you’re not, start sending out those connection requests today! Reach out to the people who you think would be willing to write you a positive review and ask for a LinkedIn Recommendation. You could even write it for them, and of course, leave it open to their edits.
