Top Hits: LinkedIn Profiles

If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you probably already know how I preach that any effective LinkedIn strategy MUST start with the LinkedIn profile. It’s the cornerstone of your digital presence. Frankly, no matter how great your posts are or how slick your company page is, no one cares if they don’t trust and respect you. And how will they decide if you’re credible? Your LinkedIn profile. 

The bottom line: you should care about your LinkedIn profile because your prospects, job candidates, and colleagues do. Lucky for you, I have tons of free information for you on LinkedInsider that will get you off to the right start. The list below brings together all my favorites. It’s a combination of tactical how-tos and encouraging food for thought.

Give these articles a read, and while you’re at it, why not share this list with your team too? There’s plenty of helpful info here to go around.
