21 Tips To Creating An Awesome Profile On LinkedIn

Social Media is heavily relied upon as a way we conduct

our online marketing.  I’m sure you have your favorite

social media site and you may not even use LinkedIn.



However, I ran across 21 Tips To Improve Your

LinkedIn profile and I thought I would share them.  These tips

are from  Melonie Dodaro, who is sometimes described as

“Canada’s #1 LinkedIn Expert” and knows her stuff about LinkedIn.


Here are her 21 steps to making your LinkedIn profile awesome.


  1. Your name should only contain your name
  2. Your headline should be catchy and have keywords and phrases that you would want to turn up in Google search results
  3. Photo should be taken by a professional
  4. Social proof is important online, so make sure you have at least 500 connections. This leads to credibility and authority on the web.
  5. Add all relevant contact information
  6. Customize your website names to attract your target market
  7. Customize your profile URL
  8. Update your status daily that adds value to your network. This could mean your latest blog post, presentation or some content you found that is worth sharing.
  9. Use keywords and phrases that you and your business would like to be found for online
  10.  Write in the first person
  11. Speak directly to to your target market so they can self-identify
  12. Add a video or slideshow. Many people prefer to watch rather than read
  13. Tell people to click to play video as it is not that obvious
  14. Keyword load your skills and expertise section
  15. Use the “Projects” section to highlight free reports, downloads or to showcase the products and services you are promoting
