I wanted my photo on LinkedIn to stand out so I framed it. Here’s how I did it.
I made a commitment for 2014 to do a better job staying connected with past and current clients by first connecting with them on LinkedIn. I’d exported ONLY my Client category from Outlook into a .csv file and had to figure out how to upload that to LinkedIn. Here’s a quick video to show you how.
How are you planning on staying connected with your clients? Please leave a comment below.
If you’re on LinkedIn, you’ve probably joined lots of interest groups. You can rearrange the group order so when you want to visit, your favorites are at the top. Here’s a how-to video that shows you how easy it is to reorder the navigation.

I rarely connect with people on LinkedIn who don’t have a photo as part of their profile. And when I do, it’s because I know them well, and I encourage them to add a headshot. Here’s how.
It’s now so much easier to add videos and other files to your LinkedIn Profile in what is now called a Professional Portfolio. This feature started rolling out on May 1, 2013 so if you don’t have it at this writing, you will soon.
Here’s how it works.

Here’s a quick video on how to hide some of what you do on LinkedIn. I don’t want someone to know when I’ve viewed their profile, for example.

When I write a new blog post, I don’t want to have to visit all my other social media sites to post it. When I publish a new post, it automatically goes to Facebook (personal and business pages), LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google Plus. Here’s how I autopost (times vary and posting isn’t always immediate so be patient).
Facebook: From your main page, search for the app, Networked Blogs. When it comes up, register your blog and be sure to syndicate it for automatic publishing. Create auto updates to your personal and business pages.
Google Plus. The WordPress plugin, WPGPlus will autopost your new articles to your Google+ profile. After you install the plugin, go into Settings and add your Google Plus email address and password.
LinkedIn: Add the app, Blog Link (or WordPress if that’s your platform). They both link directly to your blog from LinkedIn. To find the app, click More, Other Applications, choose Blog Link or WordPress.
Twitter: If you use WordPress, try a plugin such as Tweetilyto automatically tweet your new posts. After you install the plugin, go into it’s settings and make desired changes (I changed the “Minimum age of post” to zero and the Random Time to 1.)
Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter auto updates: Twitterfeed.com is another option to autopost to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. When you use a bit.ly link, you can track stats.
Take a few minutes now to set this up and save time later. If you have other ways to autopost, please leave a comment below.
UPDATE 2/26/2012: LinkedIn has removed the Twitter app, but I’m still seeing tweets. Don’t know when this will end, but I’m so looking forward to it.
UPDATE: LinkedIn announced that it is removing the Twitter app on 1/31/2012. Yeaaahh!
I spend more time on LinkedIn than Facebook because it’s all business. But, unfortunately, I have to endure the same types of dreaded updates I see on Facebook: sports trivia, automated motivational quotes, prayers, etc.
Users have their Twitter and LinkedIn accounts connected, and if they take one more step, they can choose which tweets get posted to LinkedIn. All you have to do is add the hashtag #li or #in somewhere in your tweet for the ones you want posted to LinkedIn. You have to change your settings to make this work.

You can set LinkedIn up to only post tweets that are appropriate for the site, and it’s easy. Here’s how to do it.
From now on, when you tweet about something that also works for LinkedIn, simply add #in or #li somewhere in the tweet. Your connections will thank you…I know I do.
