How to get more views on your LinkedIn profile

You've set up your LinkedIn profile, but not much seems to happen there. Here are a few quick tips to attract visitors and make some new connections:

  • Manage your profile – Enter as much information about your career as possible. Refresh it regularly with new achievements, projects you've worked on and career moves. Don't forget the photo, it's very important! Pick the one you're smiling on, but make it professional!
  • Share interesting articles about your area of work, write your own thoughts or tips, be a source of useful information for the people you would like to connect with. LinkedIn has its own publishing platform that allows you to write so-called long-form blog posts, where you can share your professional expertise. Write about your challenges, opportunities, important industry trends or give advice to people in your field. Keep your voice authentic and your writing focused and don't be afraid to express your opinion. It will get the conversation started.

  • Participate in LinkedIn groups where people from your or related industries discuss various topics and search for business partnerships. You will find groups by entering related keywords into the search engine (for instance: valves, sealing etc.). Share your LinkedIn blog posts with the group members, ask their opinion and keep the conversation going.
