Episode 121. I Finally Filled My Circle Of Strength!
Welcome to Episode 121, we are back after a break last week which was due to work commitments requiring me to be out of the office every day in Ireland.
Interesting Stuff I Saw This Week
- Google, LinkedIn strike stunning ‘grand bargain’ for property swap in Mountain View, Sunnyvale
- LinkedIn Top Attractors – UK list
- It would appear that the 3 most subscribed Pulse channels are now all Chinese language channels!
I was interviewed for another podcast this week. Andy Paul interviewed me for his Accelerate podcast which is a show for sales professionals;
LinkedIn Profiles Are Just Too Boring!
I want to encourage everyone to realise just how important your profile is and that, by just listing boring facts you are doing nothing to impress the reader…on the contrary, you might be sending them to sleep!
Why not take a look at your summary and try to write something more interesting about yourself, something about you in a professional context but something that authentically shows how interesting you are.
I think Gareth Burton does a great job with his profile
It also occurred to me recently that profiles are going to become even more important soon as Microsoft start to integrate them into Outlook emails, the 365 dashboard and Skype profiles.
I don’t have a new cool thing this week but I used a recent cool thing from Episode 119 (Eye Dropper) to finally get my profile strength circle complete
That’s it for this week, don’t forget to leave a voicemail or email me with any questions or suggestions, till next time.
Have a great week.
Thank you so much for listening. I value your support and interest.
Help me to promote the podcast
It can be difficult to get noticed in iTunes and one thing that can really make a difference is reviews. If you enjoy the show please take a minute to write an honest review in iTunes, it would be most appreciated.
If you are not sure how to write an iTunes review I have made a short video demonstrating how this is done.
