The social network for today's professional, LinkedIn is a great way to get ahead online in the Cayman Islands. A fantastic resource for business development, networking and more, an optimized profile is one of the most important steps towards getting noticed. Develop a stand-out presence with the following 5 tips.

 

Links

 

Link to your LinkedIn wherever possible! This includes on business cards, in your email signature, from your website or web pages and in other business collateral such as pamphlets and white papers. This encourages traffic to your page, generates views and boosts your connections.

 

Recommendations

 

While LinkedIn only requires a few recommendations, the more you can get, the better – given that they're high quality. Request statements from coworkers, partners, friends and more giving you a pat on the back for a recent job well done, a successful project, excellent work performance and similar accomplishments.

 

Leads

 

LinkedIn is a great way to collect leads. Include a Call-To-Action to download your free, useful and engaging content, from eBooks to white papers and more. A simple way to promote and market your own content, you can also share these links as status updates.

 

URL

 

A customized URL gives a great first impression. Key to creating a LinkedIn identity, the option can be found within the Public Profile Settings. It's simple, memorable and very worthwhile.

 

Reciprocity

 

Return the favour by providing recommendations for, and endorsing, your connections. Write thoughtful, insightful comments and put the time and effort into your words that you would expect for yourself. Show your friend, coworker or boss that you appreciate their skills.
