Get Started on LinkedIn With 4 Easy Steps


LinkedIn is an online platform that connects the world’s professionals. A  LinkedIn profile will summarise your professional experience to your business connections, current and future employers, and recruiters. Through your profile, you can showcase your professional life, milestones, skills and interests.

Creating a profile on LinkedIn isn’t easy if you’re using the site for the first time. That’s why we’ve prepared a list of four things you can do to get your profile looking first-rate.


1. Update your paper resume first

First, how is your paper resume looking? Has it been updated? Once you’re 100% happy with it, copy your work experience and education information to your LinkedIn profile.


2. Add your photo, name and headline

Did you know that people are up to 21 times more likely to look at your LinkedIn profile if you add a photo? Make sure that you’re the only person in the picture, and that you’re wearing what you would normally wear to work.

You’ll also need to add your name and a headline. Your headline should include your job title, company, and something that makes you stand out.


3. Get connected and grow your network

LinkedIn is all about connecting with people. Have you got a list of companies that you’d like to work for? Google, Apple, or Coca-Cola maybe? Follow them on LinkedIn to see company news and any new job posts.

In addition to this, don’t forget to add friends and colleagues, just go to “My Network” to find people you may know, or look for them using the search box.

4. Keep your profile updated and stay active

Finally, now that you’re connected and have the most important information on your profile. You need to keep it updated. Also, don’t forget to stay active on LinkedIn. You can do this by sharing articles, joining online groups and taking part in conversations you’ll quickly get noticed.

Social media management touches on a number of important factors, all of which form part of a well-oiled digital marketing strategy.

Incorporating social media into your digital marketing strategy allows you to align your marketing initiatives with customer behaviour. For example, 74% of people now use social media when making purchase decisions.
