How Do I Leverage LinkedIn?

Despite all the benefits offered by LinkedIn, if you do not use the platform effectively and strategically, then your searches, messages, and further activities can be a considerable waste of time.

To maximise the networking potential of LinkedIn, there are various actions that you must carry out:

Create or update a compelling, professional LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn prefers complete profiles to those that lack information. Include a hi-res head-and-shoulder photo that is indicative of the role you aspire to. Use the cover image to make clear what you do.

Start Networking

    • Capitalise on your existing connections. Even friends, family, and existing and ex colleagues are a good starting point from which you can expand your network. Sync your profile with your email address book and turn on the “People You May Know” feature.
    • Identify the right prospects, customers, and colleagues. Having expanded your visibility, you can start to focus on meaningful and relevant connections.
    • Find the groups that you should belong to. Receive referrals and introductions to potential prospects. If you would like to connect with someone who does not know you, follow netiquette and send a personalised message laying out who you are, the context of your request, and why you would like to connect.
    • Maintain relationships with colleagues, business acquaintances, and customers. Regular engagement may be as simple as liking or commenting on their posts or sending a congratulatory message when they share some news.

Publish on LinkedIn

    • Garner more visibility by regularly posting content that hits the sweet spot between personal and professional. Authenticity is the key to building trust and elevating your status within the network.
    • From basic status updates to in-depth thought leadership pieces, always incorporate a call-to-action (CTA) to inspire engagement. Familiarise yourself with tools such as LinkedIn Publishing and LinkedIn Live.
