The power of LinkedIn Recommendations has been hotly debated over the past few years. Some people look to LinkedIn recommendations to validate their thoughts about how they feel about connecting or doing business with certain people. Others look at LinkedIn recommendations as more of a nuisance to complete their profile.
Whatever your thoughts are on LinkedIn recommendations I have decided to create a great recommendation for someone that I know and work with to show you the possibilities of what can be with your LinkedIn recommendations.
LinkedIn Recommendations Review
In the end, I believe that LinkedIn recommendations have more to do with finding the right connection to recommend than the system itself. When you give someone that you respect and admire a recommendation that truly shines through versus the got have it done to complete my quota approach.
I get the impression that LinkedIn will operate completely differently if the economy is actually good. It’ll be interesting to see.
So as far as I understood LinkedIn is more important for your reputation online rather than to a search engine, right? I don’t have an account there but the thoughts of acquiring one visit me more and more often)
Yes! You are absolutely correct! Definitely get an account there to build your reputation. Especially if you are doing B2B.
Hey Andy, great overview of the linkedin recommendation system. They can be an annoyance, but visitor-generated reviews, freely given, that we can not have biased will always carry strong weight in the economy. When you’re recording videos be sure you match your recording and editing dimensions to your intended use, so that you do not have a wide screen recording in a standard square window which makes it very small. I liked your attention to detail with your recommendation, those are the kind that really make a big difference!
They can definitely be helpful with the right recommendation.
Thanks for the tip on the video! Sometimes when it gets into Youtube it does not always turn out right.
Very interesting Andy. I’ll definitely take a closer look at Linked in recommendations – always good to learn something new. Thanks!
LinkedIn Recommendations are so valuable. If you have enough from people of influence it can really help you land a job or a client. Recommendations are the most ideal form of endorsement one can ask for on LinkedIn
Definitely a positive to have. While it is not always quantity on LinkedIn it does not hurt.
I also signed up LinkedIn, because of recommendations from friends via email.
What do you think of LinkedIn?
I got to many LinkedIn invitations from some friends, and I then answered, making a profile. Then LinkedIn spam all my contacts to make them sign in. If they had made one request that wold be fine, but it just keep coming. My wife has in three months had more than 10 reminders, and that is Fu… annoying. Want to end my profile but can’t find out how.
Go into your settings! You can change a lot of different reminders like that! You can also cancel your account there. It is in the upper right hand corner. A drop down menu under your name. Let me know if you have any challenges.
