LinkedIn Premium Inspires Confidence in Business Decisions

September 24, 2015 |  by  |  Business, Consultancy, Linkedin Blog

LinkedIn expert Dr Mark D Yates believes that people greatly underestimate the potential for business growth that LinkedIn has to offer them. They might be satisfied with a profile that connects with just a few people, or they might restrict their privacy settings and leave all of LinkedIn’s useful features completely untapped. You might be one of the people who don’t see the other end of LinkedIn where people who know of the potential to expand their business using LinkedIn are thriving. I’m here to detail all of the valuable features that LinkedIn and LinkedIn premium have to offer.

LinkedIn Premium Inspires Confidence in Business Decisions

First of all, you might not be confident with using LinkedIn as a whole. I recommend you look around on LinkedIn and get a really good feel for it before you think about upgrading. Our Independent LinkedIn consultancy team can offer you LinkedIn training to aid you in optimising your business growth on LinkedIn and show you how to make your business exposure levels soar. Once you familiarise yourself with LinkedIn’s free features, premium can be the next step you need to give yourself that extra edge.

First, I’ll go through a few things that you should know about the benefits of upgrading to premium:

The InMail feature is unlocked with LinkedIn premium. You get at least 10 InMail credits per month, and each credit allows you to send one InMail. This allows you to contact anyone on LinkedIn, even if you aren’t connected to them at all and don’t have any of their contact details to be able to add them with. You can provide them with your contact details so they can add you on LinkedIn or contact you by other means. No need to wait for people to come to you – you’re provided with the opportunity to take charge of putting yourself out there by sending people messages directly. I recommend checking our website, LinkedIn sign, for in-depth information on the InMail feature.

Another highly useful feature of LinkedIn premium is that you can see everyone who has viewed your profile, and not just the top 5. The ability to keep an eye on who has seen your profile is significant because you’ll need to know what kinds of people you’re reaching. If you view someone’s profile, you can check if they’ve viewed you back, or you can see if someone you’ve contacted has looked at your profile yet. You’ll also be able to see all of the search terms people are using to find you, and the industries and locations of the people who viewed you. All of this is designed to help you improve your profile further.

Your profile will stand out more, with it being twice as large as non-premium user’s on searches, containing more information in the header. You also get a gallery of images to use as a custom background, making your profile more visually appealing. As well as this, you can filter searches more specifically with premium, with 4 additional search filters, and then you can save it and get up to 5 weekly email alerts whenever someone new matches your criteria. So, you’re very likely to be getting more profile views and messages, so it’s even more important to keep on top of things, using regular replies and updates, offering advice and help to people freely. You can hire a LinkedIn expert to aid you in establishing yourself as something of a leader in your area of expertise.

So, LinkedIn premium really gives you the chance to take control of your online business exposure, and if you want to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way. You’ll probably be moved out of your comfort zone – but that’s okay. Since being confident with being out of your comfort zone is a necessary skill to have in business. Investing in LinkedIn, and seeing the benefits of doing so, will certainly inspire confidence to do such things in other business endeavours. While rankings on LinkedIn can be highly competitive, it’s definitely easier for you to push yourself just that little bit further with premium, and it will be well worth it. You can compare your profile rankings, views, applications etc. with others using premium, with the ability to compare where you are with regards to things like education and skills, so you can be sure you’re making all the right improvements to your profile to get you right where you need to be.

LinkedIn speaker and expert Dr Mark D Yates highly recommends that you consider the benefits of upgrading to premium, because they might be exactly what you need to expand your business even further using LinkedIn, regardless of the current size of your business. Also, the methods used to expand on LinkedIn reflect decisions in more than just the online side of business growth – for example, putting yourself out there and considering methods to keep yourself a cut above the rest are things you’ll likely be doing anyway. So this is why I say that LinkedIn premium will inspire confidence in business decisions; since you’ll be getting used to making them online.
