  • Description

Transform your LinkedIn Profile from Dull to Dynamite!


Don’t settle for mediocre

LinkedIn is the most powerful networking and career-building tool on the web. It’s used by more than 546 million people in over 200 countries. Yet most users do little more than plug in their resume, connect with a few colleagues, and hope for the best.

We’ll let you in on a little secret: They’re doing it wrong.

This webinar will show you how to do it right — all with simple, proven steps that spell LinkedIn success.

We’ll cover:

  • Profile basics – choosing the right profile and cover photos, creating your bio, building a better headline and (effectively) detailing your experience.
  • Making connections — Is it OK to send connection requests to people you don’t know? Should you connect with people who aren’t in your industry? Should you accept invitations from strangers?
  • Keeping up with updates – What’s the difference between sharing vs posting original material? Which one is more effective, and why? Should you be “liking” and commenting on other people’s posts?
  • Groups — Which groups should you join? Should you create your own group?
  • LinkedIn Tools – What’s a company page? What is SlideShare?
  • Why your profile matters — Should you have a profile if you don’t have much work experience to show? Can a good profile kick-start your career? What if you’re already doing great? Can a profile help you earn recognition as a thought leader in your industry?
  • How LinkedIn benefits fundraisers — Can it help land donors for your nonprofit? Should your nonprofit have its own page?
  • Time Management — How much time should you spend on LinkedIn? What if you don’t have time for updates?

We’ll even provide you with a toolkit containing:

  • Image size specifications for you profile picture, cover photo and posted images
  • Tips for choosing the right images
  • Tips for selecting content that appeals to your audience
  • Tips for making your headline stand out
  • A list of planned giving groups you should join
  • A list of top-level thought leaders you should follow for some of the best career tips, planned giving advice, fundraising inspiration and motivational mantras around.
