Are You Leveraging LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is the most professional social media site out there, but it’s often ignored. If you’re just getting started with LinkedIn, make sure to follow these simple tips:

  1. Get Your Profile in Shape. Make sure you have an up-to-date headshot and job history on your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn is the equivalent of an online resume, so it’s important to be current and accurate. Bonus points for achieving 100% profile completeness. To do this, log in, go to “Profile”, then click on “Complete Your Profile”. LinkedIn will walk you through the rest.Nov-Newsletter2
  2. Connect with the Right People. The best way to build a contact base on LinkedIn is to connect with the usual suspects: colleagues, current and former clients, friends, and family. The fastest way to do this is to export your email contacts (business and personal if you’d like) as a CSV file, and import them in to LinkedIn. This will allow you to send invitations to those people all at once.
  3. Leverage LinkedIn Groups. LinkedIn Groups are a large number of people concerned with a particular topic. Many are open to the public. Join groups of like-minded real estate professionals, or groups where you may have the chance to interact with potential clients. Engage with group members by joining in discussions, sharing your opinions, and asking questions.
