60 Seconds Tough Talk With The LinkedIn Expert’s Expert- LinkedIn Expert vs LinkedIn All star

February 18, 2015 |  by  |  60 Seconds, Linkedin Blog


LinkedIn expert and LinkedIn all-star refer to the type of profile strength you gain on LinkedIn. You are the only person who can see your profile strength.


To achieve all star status you must complete each section of your profile fully while also including:

  • Recommendations (minimum 2),
  • Connections (minimum 50)
  • Endorsements.


The main benefit of having an all-star profile is that it allows the profile to be shared on Twitter and Facebook. Sometimes if you change a part of your profile, the profile strength may go down. However, this could just be due to the length of the section of your profile you have changed.


A completed profile is essential to anyone who wants to make the most of LinkedIn. If you have a completed profile you will rank higher in the search. When you have created your complete profile, the best way to start improving your visibility on LinkedIn can be through joining groups and engaging in the discussions. By creating original content you can show your writing skills to your connections and share your knowledge.


Tough Talk:  

Not finishing your profile is a mistake. You will not rank where you should, and you may possibly lose out on great business opportunities.


Top LinkedIn Tip:

Always proof read your profile before you save what you have created. You may have an all-star profile but if it is full of grammatical errors it can affect the interest in your profile a lot.
