5 LinkedIn improvements for coaches your clients will notice immediately

LinkedIn is the most important online business networking platform. It has 187 million members in over 200 countries and is available in 19 languages.

It is a great platform if you want potential clients to find you especially if you work in a business to business (B2B) environment. Maybe you are a career coach and work with employees, or you are a business coach and work with small business owners. Or you are a management team coach and work with teams and CEO’s.

LinkedIn is removing profiles

This is something I have been giving a lot of attention in my articles for Facebook. Make sure your Personal Profile is all about you! So just enter only your personal name and no additions. And it is no different for LinkedIn profiles.

When you want to have a business profile on Facebook, just make a Business Page with your personal profile. If you don’t want to show who created the business page, you can do that.

Stupid me, I have been making that same mistake myself on LinkedIn since 2006!

Look, this is my professional profile on LinkedIn

My email address is included in my name box. Why?
In 2006 I looked at how the network builders did their thang, and adding your email to your profile was a smart thing to do. This way people can add you as their contact easily.
