LinkedIn can be a powerful tool for professionals to use. Here are 5 powerful LinkedIn tips to help you leverage LinkedIn’s features.

Set up a company page: Gather a following on this page and post to it frequently, to capture people’s interest in your business.
Keep posting updates on your personal profile: Interesting content should be frequently shared to your connections’ activity feeds, again to capture and maintain their interest.

Connect to as many people as possible: You can do this by using the search feature of LinkedIn, or connecting you your mutual connections via the ‘get introduced’ function. Doing so will of course expand your audience.

Use Sponsored Updates:

This is useful when you want to reach out to specific groups of people (industry, demographic etc.) and post to their activity feeds even if you’re not connected.
Join 50 groups: It’s always important to do this so that you can easily gain more connections. Interact and connect with as many people as you can.
Tough Talk:

You can’t expect people to come to you without any work on LinkedIn. You have to put yourself out there and make them come to you. Building up a network might take time, but you’ll find it’s very worth it.

Top LinkedIn Tip:

Sections in your profile can be moved around and changed how you wish, and you can even add photos and videos to the profile as well. So make your profile exactly the way you want it, and make it stand out as unique.
