Are you social on LinkedIn?

Many are not.

At best, they upload their resume and connect with people they know.

There is a better way and this involves sharing more about what you are learning and doing professionally.

This blog post presents 9 ways to be more social on LinkedIn so that others will notice and remember you and your personal brand.

Read here:

Please share. Thanks.

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day and remind everyone to share your love with someone special.

Turn off the notifications. Put your smartphone aside. And, spend some time with loved ones.

But, read this first:

LinkedIn is only as good as you make it.

If you only upload the contents of your resume, then don't expect much benefit from it.

However, if you think strategically with your LinkedIn:

1. connections
2. headline
3. summary
4. the rest of your profile
5. your social activities,

then you can amplify your personal brand, be remembered by connections, and build relationships with important others (potential employers, clients, career stakeholders).

Thanks for reading. Please comment and share.

Is LinkedIn a place where your resume goes to die?

It may be if you are not socially active there.

Whether a beginner or an All-Star on LinkedIn, I recommend that you go All-In and add regular social sharing and social engagement to the mix.

This will amplify your personal brand, show others what you are learning and thinking, and be remembered by your connections.

You can learn a lot about social media from my students.

2. They know that social media for professional and public is much different than from personal and private.
3. They know that social media networking does not replace physical networking.
4. And more..... read:

Are you and your personal brand physically introverted?

Me, too. I am much more comfortable with social media networking rather than physical networking.

So, how is your elevator pitch working for you?

In my new blog post I propose an alternative (or an addition) to the traditional elevator pitch. I call it my social selling un-pitch.

Read it here:

and please tell me what you think about it.
