Get Noticed On LinkedIn

LinkedIn has added Applications to help your profile stand out in the crowd – why not use them? I am taking advantage of them on my profile – Dotty Scott

LinkedInWhen you are signed into your LinkedIn Profile there is a navigation box on the left hand side. The bottom option says “Applications”. Clicking it will take you to a page that lists the available applications you can add to your profile.

I am using the WordPress App to link my blog to my LinkedIn Profile. This pulls the last 5 blog posts into my LinkedIn profile so people can read excerpts from my posts then click to go to my blog for more of the post. Linkedin supports WordPress through the WordPress Application and TypePad, Movable Type, Vox,,, Blogger, LiveJournal and more through the BlogLink Application.

Do you have a professional PowerPoint presentation for your business? Are you an Artist that would like to display a portfolio? There is an App for embedding a PowerPoint Presentation, Word Document, or PDF file into your Profile. It is called SlideShare Presentations.

Google Presentation is another Application that will link any Google App presentation you have for your business into your LinkedIN Profile. It can:

  • Showcase a recent talk or presentation
  • Display a visual portfolio of your professional accomplishments.
  • Introduce yourself to recruiters and professional contacts viewing your profile

Are you reading any really great business books? Share them with Reading List by Amazon.

Would you like to create a Poll to gather data for a business presentation? Add the application called Polls.

There are 10 different business related applications that LinkedIN provides to create a really professional and very unique profile that can greatly benefit the exposure your business gets from the Internet. By not taking advantage of these free tools you are letting your competition get ahead of your business. Who wants to do that?

Social Media plays a huge role with your online marketing.
