10 Things To Thank LinkedIn For
- Thanks, LinkedIn, for the opportunity to place a revised headshot photo on my profile, to show others what I look like now (because I am changing!) how approachable and friendly I look. I hope they are looking at my profile when they call me. I know I am looking at theirs. Now we can have a much warmer, more productive conversation.
- Thanks for letting me tell others WHY I DO WHAT I DO in my profile headline: a self-expression of WHY CHOOSE ME as a potential business partner. I have stuffed my “self” into 120 characters, including spaces. I have been very economical but still could have used a few more characters, so LinkedIn, perhaps you could loosen this up someday…but thanks anyway.
- Thanks for the Summary section being so flexible as to let me really expand on my headline, so I can continue the thought with my elevator pitch. And thanks for making this section so searchable on LinkedIn. Using Slideshare, I also have added rich graphics containing links to videos, podcasts, slide decks, to show my capabilities. (That deserves a separate “thank you” in itself but I won’t count it twice.)
Look for parts 4-6 tomorrow and parts 7-10 Wednesday.
I wish you a bountiful and happy Thanksgiving.
