Maximize Your Searchability on LinkedIn

With over 60 million professionals worldwide on LinkedIn you want to make sure that you are maximizing your ability to be found on it. While you might see LinkedIn as a site for people looking for jobs, it is more often used by professionals to look up colleagues, vendors, customers, companies, and industry related individuals. In order for you to increase your profile's searchability you need to make sure your profile is at 100% completeness. When you login to LinkedIn you can see what percentage your profile is complete by going to the Edit Profile page. If you are not at 100% you are likely missing your summary, experience, specialties, education information, a photo, or recommendations. For recommendations, you will need to have at least 3. By rounding out and completing your profile you will maximize your networking abilities and experience on LinkedIn.

Happy New Year

In the past several weeks, we've been subjected to the ever-present lists of 2010....

  • Best and worst actors
  • Best and worst moments of the recession
  • Best and worst political mistakes
  • And on and on...

But I prefer to look ahead and envision what the headlines might be a year from now when we're looking at the "best and worst" of 2011. Perhaps they will say something like this...

  • As I made my rounds visiting our customers and business partners around the country, there definitely is a new sense of overall optimism I haven't seen in the last two years. The common recoccuring theme behind the sense of optimism appears to be directly connected to the outcome of the November elections.
  • At the end of 2010, MSNBC reported that the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits fell to its lowest point in nearly two and a half years, a sign that the job market was slowly improving. And over the course of 2011, the news was even better! Businesses hired back more workers than they had in the last 5 years.
  • Businesses invested in new technology in 2011 (hardware and software), fueling greater productivity than reported in previous years. Many prepare in advance to leap ahead of competitors by switching to Software as a Service based solutions, refreshing existing On-Premised based applications and the movement towards Network Appliances.
  • Microsoft released the newest version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM (customer relationship management) 2011 to great acclaim, adding thousands of new customers in 3 months.
  • IDT Consulting helped manufacturers, professional service firms, non-profits and a host of other companies increase their net revenues with Process Management, Document Capture, Content Management and Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions.
Our best wishes to you for a happy, profitable, growing year ahead in 2011!
Thank you,
