LinkedIn Basics Action Steps
- Make sure that your profile is 100% complete. When everything is finished you have a better chance of having invitations accepted and people wanting to connect with you. The picture is crucial, because without it people believe you are not serious about LinkedIn.
- Be active on a number of different groups. You are maxed at 50 groups, so play around with the groups that you like best. Then choose 3 or 4 active groups that you can “work the room” with so to speak.
- Do your best to reach out to either 5 new or current connections everyday. I know this gets to be a challenge even for me. However, it is definitely rewarding in the long term.
