LinkedIn rolled out a great feature (if we use it correctly). You now can mention your connections in your conversations. This feature helps us to engage our connections easily rather than we need to send message to each other. :)
How does it work?
- Begin by typing the name of a connection or a company in your status update box or a comment field on the Homepage.
- Select someone from the list of your connections that appear in the drop-down, complete your status or comment and post it.
- The person or company you mentioned will receive a notification alerting them that they have been mentioned.
You can refer to the images below:
Again, just a gentle reminder that LinkedIn is a professional networking site. Don't simply mention your connections if you have nothing important to say and to share. If you do, you will destroy your relationship and reputation.
LinkedIn recently just announced they hit one billion endorsements. But how about the value? As I posted few times before about LinkedIn Endorsement. I received some endorseents from the people that I never worked with.
From my opinion, boosting how many endorsements we can get is similar to boosting how many "Likes" we can get on Facebook Fan Pages.
Below is the infographic about the one billion endorsement.
I received an email from LinkedIn said that I have one of the top 1% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012. Is this true? I searched on Google and got different views. Some told it is true, others told that it is just another LinkedIn marketing strategy to use our ego to help them spread LinkedIn news that it now has 200 million members.
My opinion is, since LinkedIn is a very professional networking site, I believe top 1% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012 is real and LinkedIn wants to use this opportunity to make this news goes viral.
But it means nothing to us if we don't get any benefits from LinkedIn. Top 1% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012 is just another number.
How about you? Did you receive the same email? If yes, what is your opinion?
I read a lot of blog posts advised people how to build professional reputation with Linkedin. 9 out of 10 posts are almost the same. Fine tune your headline, update your summary, put more projects and experience, etc.
Today, I share with you how to build your reputation with Linkedin according to your target market. Let say if you are an internet marketing consultant from Malaysia and you want to do business in US, you need to build your reputation or fine tune your LinkedIn profile according to US, rather than Malaysia market. How do you do that?
You need to study US culture. In US. Maybe Americans use "specialist" rather than "consultant". Maybe Americans don't use "specialist" or "consultant" at all. For example, they use Search Engine Optimizers, Social Media Optimizers, etc.
And, you need to get some certificates from accredited SEO or Internet Marketing agencies to build your reputation. It does help your American customers to understand you if your awards, certificates and qualifications are all from Malaysia.
This unique advice helps you to truly build your reputation with LinkedIn according to your target market. All the best! :)
I just received an email from LinkedIn that they will remove LinkedIn Answers on January 31. From my opinion, LinkedIn Answers is a feature that people can position themselves in the market, another great feature will be removed after event feature.
