LinkedIn Training: Creating a Professional LinkedIn Presence

Yesterday I woke up to a flurry of emails and text messages of people telling me that I was on the front page of the Kelowna Daily Courier newspaper and also had a large article consuming page 1 of the business section about my recent LinkedIn training seminar held at the Ramada Hotel in Kelowna. During a full day live LinkedIn training I had room full of business owners, entrepreneurs, sales people and professionals working on their LinkedIn profiles. The objective of this workshop was not for me to stand at the front of the room and just teach all day, but more to lead this group of savvy professionals through how to create a professional LinkedIn profile that gets results, and implement it before the end of the day.

Currently 97% of the people using LinkedIn are using it wrong…the other 3% are getting amazing results and are increasing their visibility, credibility and growing their business faster than they ever could before. Why You Need a Great LinkedIn Profile Right Now 1. Your Prospects Are Already Looking Up Your Name.

This one point alone essentially makes your LinkedIn profile more important than your website. 2. Your Profile Needs SEO Just Like Your Website. Your profile needs to be optimized for the keywords you want to be found for. When someone searches on LinkedIn for what you do or offer, you can’t afford to have your competitors come up first! LinkedIn is extremely powerful for B2B but can also be very effective for B2C with the right strategy. 3. […]
