CHAPTER 2

Powerful LinkedInĀ® Profile

9. Add Skills to your Profile

LinkedInĀ® allows you to add Skills to your profile for which you can then be endorsed.

The trick with skills is to keep it to the skills you want to be endorsed; you probably have 100 different skills that you are good at to some extent.

If you want to be credible and get known for being great in a particular area, then restrict your skills list to the 25 or 30 core skills that you would be happy for someone to endorse you.

Media links can be added to your profile to add visual impact to your LinkedInĀ® profile.

You can add PDF’s, Word documents, presentations, videos and Images to both your LinkedInĀ® ‘About’ section as well as each work experience section of your profile.

If you leave this out, you miss a huge opportunity to give your LinkedInĀ® profile additional credibility.

Add at least 6-12 media links to your ‘About’ section. Each media item that you add should support the words you have used in your LinkedInĀ® profile.

11. Add Publications & Projects to your Profile

If you have written and published books, articles, papers, etc., you can now add these to your profile.

If your publication is available online, you can add links to your profile to drive sales; this is one way to give your books more exposure.

12. Add Voluntary Experience to your Profile

You can add some personal details to your profile that contain details of your philanthropic work or voluntary work raising awareness for the causes and charities you support.

13. Contact Section

Make sure that your contact information is correct within your LinkedInĀ® profile.


That’s it for today. We finished chapter 2: Powerful LinkedInĀ® Profile. Tomorrow, we will read a new chapter, Chapter 3: Personal Recommendations.


Key takeaways

  • Keep your LinkedInĀ® skills list to the 25 or 30 core skills that you would be happy for someone to endorse you.

  • Add at least 6-12 media links to your LinkedInĀ® ‘About’ section that support the words you have used in your LinkedInĀ® profile.

  • If you are using sales funnels or landing pages, you can add links to your LinkedInĀ® profile, send them to your website or lead capture pages, and then move people to your mailing list.
