October 11, 2012 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog


As a top linkedin profile connected person & freelance linkedin business growth consultant, many linkedin connections approach me for advice and linkedin tips on how use linkedin to leverage their linkedin profile to achieve long term profitable & sustainable business growth.

The following are just 5 of my proven business success linkedin tips which need to be included in your linkedin profile.



Linkedin Tips 1: Translate your profile into different languages.



Providing your linkedin profile is 100% complete linkedin experts will agree that it only takes about 15 minutes to translate your linkedin profile into another language on Linkedin.
LinkedIn is a global business network & if you don’t look to overseas markets for new business or joint ventures, then your competitors will laugh all the way to the bank. You can add another 17 languages besides English to your linkedin profile.



Once you’ve done this then you should post an information update about it in your linkedin blogs, linkedin articles and linkedin news updates through your Linkedin groups.



You will not see the other languages, but if anyone in one of the countries you choose to translate your linkedin profile into researches your linkedin profile, they will read it in their own language.



I suggest you stick with the languages most widely spoken in the countries talent linkedin is most proactive in, i.e. French, German & Spanish. Once you’ve mastered these, then you can look at adding more translations if required.



Be advised linkedin reports that the linkedin profile translation service lists over 40 languages in their menu, but only 17 or 18 are actually available as of August 2012.



Linkedin Tips 2: Increase the number of linkedin recommendations on your linkedin profile.



Self explanatory. More recommendations = Increased buyers confidence.



Linkedin Tips 3: To use linkedin effectively, open up a Google Adwords free account.



Go to Google.com & enter Google Adwords in the search bar. Once you’ve landed in Adwords, open up a free account.



Research on Google Adwords for specific key words & phrases relevant to your business sector.



Look to identify 4 or 5 main key words/phrases. Try to stick to either a single word, but no more than a 5 word key phrase.



If you are unsure about which key words and phrases are relevant to you, your business and your linkedin profile then it’s worth investing a bit of research time into reading as many linkedin blog, linkedin reports, linkedin articles, linkedin news and linkedin tips posted by some of the linkedin experts in their linkedin blogs.



Linkedin Tips 4: Re-write your existing your linkedin profile job scripts.



Think of this as writing a second draft of your linkedin profile scripts.



Cut & paste your existing your linkedin profile scripts for your current & previous jobs into a Word document & then alter the scripts by crafting your new key words & phrases into your scripts.



Ideally you should be aiming for a 2 to 3% key word/phrase density in each script.



Craft your key words & phrases in seamlessly, so it reads okay. Don’t be tempted to stuff your keywords/phrases into your linkedin profile scripts or you will be bounced off linkedin for key word stuffing & black hat marketing.



Do this one thing properly and you will propel your linkedin profile up the linkedin advanced search rankings.



Linkedin Tips 5: The 90 – 10 rule, i.e. give more than you take.



Most of the top linkedin experts and professional Power Networkers understand the 90 – 10 rule. i.e. You have to give away 90% of your time, effort & energy to receive a 10% return on your linkedin business networking investment.



Most new linkedin connections struggle with this concept as many networkers want to take, take take.



Get this right & the 10% you receive in return can often be extremely lucrative business.
