About the Episode:

LinkedIn regularly rolls out changes that make the platform a better place to build human-to-human connections. When new changes come out, it’s important that you take advantage of those features. Here are 3 new and powerful changes LinkedIn has made this year.

3 New and Powerful LinkedIn Tools

  1. Correctly pronouncing someone’s name instantly builds a connection, especially if they have a difficult name to pronounce. LinkedIn has very recently given us the ability to add a voice recording of our names to our profiles. Next time, before you meet with someone over the phone or in person, take a look at their profile and listen to their name’s pronunciation. It’s a powerful tool for connecting with others. And don’t forget to return the favor and add a recording of your name to your profile.
  2. LinkedIn recently raised the limit of characters allowed in the About and Headline sections. In the About section, use every character that you can. It explains who you are, and the more information and keywords you provide, the higher you’ll pull up in LinkedIn searches. In the Headline, you now have more room to add those extra words you might not have been able to fit before.
  3. LinkedIn has removed Media from the About section and turned it into its own Featured section. The amazing thing about the Featured section is that it’s basically a call-to-action section. You can add images with links that go directly to the webpage you’re promoting. You can add multiple images and links in the Featured section, but it’s best to keep it down to two.
