A Checklist to Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile


Share Important Links
LinkedIn allows you to share up to three websites in your contact info. The first link should be your business’s website, the second should be your business’s blog, and the third can be your personal website or your business’s LinkedIn account. These links are vitally important for helping followers find their way to your business’s website and content.

Provide Professional Summary
In your summary, share one to two paragraphs on your expertise and what you’re currently working on.

Just like your resume, your experience is where you can list your work history and highlight your achievements.
