Do you want to increase your product sales in 2015 and the future?

If you are a professional in any industry and you are looking for increased sales then you simply can’t afford to have a mediocre Linkedin profile.


The answer is simple. Over 330 million business focused people are active members on Linkedin. There is a trend towards viewing lots of Linkedin profiles for pre-purchase decision making and pre- buying intelligence.

It is incredibly important to have an ‘all-star’ profile if you are looking to use the Linkedin platform or Linkedin experts to help you find a new job or contractual work.


Because just like your CV, your Linkedin profile can come under serious scrutiny by prospective clients and/or customers.

Linkedin is the new ‘hunting ground’ for recruitment, talent spotting agencies and professional head hunters. We all know first impressions matter, especially in the business world. So make your Linkedin profile first impression count by being an ‘all-star’ professional.

In contemporary business networking if you want to be found, you need to develop and control your personal profile information in one primary location. The best location for business professionals has to be Linkedin.

10 Top Tips

  1. Finish your Linkedin profile to ‘all-star’ completion. Use Linkedin regularly and include a recent photograph.
  2. Lavish key words and phrases into every one of your Linkedin profile scripts
  3. Use 50% of your invitations to connect with others who have more than 500 first level Linkedin profile connections
  4. Sign up to a minimum of 45 of the 50 Linkedin groups available to you. Posting sector relevant messages once a week on every group. Leave any underperforming groups.
