Last week, LinkedIn officially announced to the world its upcoming changes, which have started to roll out across its platform. With membership in the U.S. at approximately 133 million, and worldwide membership up to 467 million, it’s more important than ever to stand out on LinkedIn.
Thankfully, as far as I can tell, effective LinkedIn strategies have not changed with the new platform. You still need to follow my 3 Ls:
- Locatability (have 500+ connections and use keywords effectively)
- Likeability (have a personable, professional photo and a unique Summary section)
- ALiveness (stay active on LinkedIn and network off the site as well)
My hope is that the free platform will be more user-friendly—that it will be easier to post articles, easier to keep track of important notifications, and easier to figure out how you’re connected to people and companies. What’s clear is that many things will look different and be organized differently; that the Advanced Search function will function differently; and that you will no longer be able to use Notes and Tags unless you have Sales Navigator.
Here are LinkedIn’s videos on the new changes.
As the author of How to Write a KILLER LinkedIn Profile, I face my own dilemmas about how to handle these new changes. Not to worry: I will be revising my e-book, and if you are subscribed, you will get the new version! I have other questions as well, however, as to when to publish my next e-book version and whether to create a new print book at all. I thought I’d ask you to help me out.
Would you be so kind as to complete this quick 6-question survey? I would be very grateful! And you’ll be entered to win *your choice* of $50 off any service from The Essay Expert – or a $25 Amazon gift card!
Your input will help me greatly in making decisions about future publishing decisions. Thank you!
