3 Smart Ways to Use Video In Your LinkedIn Profile | LinkedIn Tips [VIDEO]

Each month I speak in front of groups on the subject of Social Media and when I begin talking about LinkedIn I always ask this question: “How many of you have a video on your LinkedIn profile?” I rarely get even one hand that goes up.  If the group is 300 or more people, I may get one hand up.

I believe there are really only four reasons you may not have a video on your profile.  You either 1) don’t know why you should, 2) don’t know what to say on the video, 3) are too afraid to record yourself and get on video or 4) you just don’t know how to put a video on your LinkedIn profile. The short answers are 1) to add value so when someone clicks on your profile, they are better off as a result, 2) watch the video below for some ideas, 3) get over it – it’s social MEDIA – embrace it, and 4) there are two great applications I mention below to help you.

Whatever your reason, keep in mind that the most powerful way to differentiate your LinkedIn profile from the thousands of others who may be competing with your profile on LinkedIn is to put a video on it.

In this video below I describe 3 smart ways to use video in your LinkedIn Profile.

The best LinkedIn applications to put video onto your LinkedIn profiles are the Slideshare.net application or the Google Presentation application.

LinkedIn’s search engine within their website is not to be taken lightly. People are using the LinkedIn search engine every day, looking for people like you. If you are a financial planner, when someone types in “financial planning,” you want to have the best chance at showing up high in the search page results. Ideally, you want to show up on the first couple of pages.  Remember, social media works, but it takes a human to work it. You have to take small steps to maximizing LinkedIn.

Here’s a video tip I recorded casually to help you get “found” on LinkedIn when people are searching for what you offer of value:
