Business Building Tips for Linkedin, Part 1

As you know, I am a big fan of Linkedin, when it comes to business building. Linkedin is a bit different than most social media sites, in that, it remains a professional networking site, instead of the more personal feel of Facebook. It is fairly unlikely that your Linkedin connections will air all their dirty laundry and post photos of what they made for dinner. (Thank goodness!)

If you have not yet created a Linkedin profile, do so. Visit http://www.linkedin.com and join for free. If you need help with this step, contact me anytime and I will be happy to walk you through it.

The first tip is, take advantage of your headline.

Your headline is the info directly under your name. Most people’s headline reiterates their job title and company name. Did you know your headline can be anything you want? This is a great opportunity to show a bit of your personality (in a professional manner, of course) while showcasing your skills and areas of expertise.

Not sure what to write? Take a moment and identify your perfect customer. Now imagine what things that customer might be looking for in their real estate industry professional. Last but not least, find a creative way to describe yourself as that person. Honesty and uniqueness are key.

Using this easy tip will boost your Linkedin rankings and help your profile get attention from would-be clients, employers and affiliates.
