It’s been a few months since I wrote my popular Professional LinkedIn Profile Tips: A Checklist of 17 Must-Have Items post, and since we have all seen the growing importance of visual social media, I wanted to offer the Maximize Social Business readers an easy way to compare their own profile with what I call the perfect LinkedIn profile tips summary. When I mentioned wanting to do an infographic with #MSB contributor Tammy Kahn Fennell, she offered to work together to create something that could serve as a reference for her MarketMeSuite customers as well.
In addition to the 17 must-have items I listed in my blog post, all now shown in beautiful visual form, Tammy’s team also added some great content so that the infographic contains the following compelling 8 statistics about LinkedIn that will serve you well to keep in mind:
- Adding a LinkedIn profile picture makes your profile 7x more likely to be viewed by others
- Looking for work? 42% of hiring managers surveyed say they view volunteer experience as equivalent to formal work experience.
- More than 2 billion LinkedIn endorsements have been given out since its launch.
- The average number of endorsements per LinkedIn user is 5.
- There are more than 200 conversations happening each minute across LinkedIn Groups.
- 81% of LinkedIn users belong to at least one group.
- 50.5% of user profiles are 100% complete.
- 42% of users update their information on a regular basis.
You don’t need to spend an entire day updating your LinkedIn profile: An hour here or there will suffice. But just as updating our websites on a regular basis is a best practice for most businesses, updating our own personal/professional website that is LinkedIn on a regular basis might be equally important, especially as LinkedIn continues to evolve.
Without further adieu, here is the infographic of LinkedIn profile tips. How does your own profile compare?
