If you’ve already made a profile and you’re not quite sure what to do next, here’s 5 great LinkedIn tips to help you get started:

  1. Start your own group: This is the simplest tip, but groups are fantastic areas to start discussions and create brand engagement while developing more authority in your field. If you start your own group, you’re able to stand out as a leader.
  2. Tag connections in posts: If you see a post that reminds you of one of your connections, don’t hesitate to tag them, especially if you think they’d benefit from reading the post. Just use the ‘@’ symbol to share the content with them.
  3. Send a message when connecting: For most people, the ‘I’d like to add you’ default message is sufficient when trying to connect, however, this seems impersonal. Send a message of your own instead!
  4. Endorse your connections’ skills: When you endorse your connections’ skills, you’re increasing the likelihood of them boosting your skills, which is something that makes your skills seem trustworthy and valuable to others.
  5. Make comments and give feedback: Once you’ve joined a few groups, start engaging with the groups’ audiences and make comments/give feedback. Keep in mind; comments and feedback must be relevant and valuable to readers.
