Update your LinkedIn Title

Mistakes to Avoid

  1. Many times I’ll see people who run all their attributes together without any spacing.

The Fix:   Include symbols like | or \ between your descriptors

  1. Some other people list obscure titles.

The Fix:   Focus on words that clients would search and that describe your uniqueness

  1. Owner or President is great yet consider how potential clients would search for a travel or tourism specialist.

The Fix:  Wordsmith your title to focus on the needs of your clientele and connections.

  1. The & (ampersand symbol) doesn’t always show up properly in updates and notifications.

The Fix:  Use this symbol sparingly to avoid garbled text in network updates.

Making the most of the available social landscape while captivating your LinkedIn followers can be done quickly and easily with this small fix.
