Don't Spill The Beans When Updating Your LinkedIn Profile.
"I don’t want to tell my network every time I make a change to my profile this weekend.”
We all want to have a stellar profile and that requires time. But, when you’re updating your LinkedIn profile, it can be annoying to your contacts if they’re alerted every time you make a change. Plus you mighty not want everyone to see that you're busy updating, tweaking, adding and subtracting content every few minutes.
Our profiles should:
Convey the right message.
Includes the right keywords.
Have a great headshot.
Include a job description that sets us apart.
Promotes ourselves and our business with the right message.
You get it.
So take the time and make these important updates. Having your network see your profile changes as a whole is a good thing, but not right away, so see my TIP below for broadcasting it when the time is right.
HOW TO: Hover over your picture at the top right > Privacy & Settings > Privacy Controls > Turn on/off your activity broadcasts.
TIP: Be sure to turn this feature back on when you're completing your final changes so it gets broadcast, and others will be enticed to take a look at your profile, now that's it's ready to be seen by the masses!
