What’s the difference between an Expertly Written Linkedin Profile and a Profile that you’ve written yourself?

The difference lies in the detail. For example:

  • There’s little point in having a wonderfully written profile if nobody finds it. At this very moment, other members are searching LinkedIn for a specific service or product that they are in need of. Will they find you? By keyword optimising your profile, I can ensure that your profile is picked up by LinkedIn’s search engine and in turn by the people who matter.
  • Your profile should market you as an industry expert and as someone who can offer a ‘solution’ to the reader through your unique product, service or expertise. When communicated in the right way, a professionally written profile will work hard on your behalf, enticing readers to connect with you.

It’s Your Worldwide Professional Platform

It’s what you’ll want customers, colleagues, recruiters and associates to see when they search for you online. Are you taking full advantage of this invaluable opportunity? Does your profile do you justice and are you happy with what people might see? If not, then my LinkedIn profile writing service is for you.

The Profile Review Service

Cost: £180 incl VAT

What is included?

A one-hour Skype or telephone consultation to verbally review your existing LinkedIn profile. We’ll discuss:

  • Your profile photo: Do you have one? If so, does it communicate the right message?
  • Your headline: Are you using all available characters to describe what you can offer the reader? Are you utilising your unique keywords?
  • Your contact information: What should you display and where?
  • The About section: What structure should you use and how should an effective Summary be written?
  • Your Current Experience section: What information should you include here and what structure should you adopt?
  • Your call to action: What you need to include and where.
  • Your previous experience: Are you showcasing how you got to where you are today?
  • Skills and Endorsements: What to think about when adding and reordering your skills. Why are they so important?

At the end of our consultation, you should feel confident about redrafting a more effective LinkedIn profile yourself.

How many people generally attend your Stage 1 or Stage 2 training courses?

This can vary depending upon the course venue, location and time of year. However, most courses attract an average of ten delegates. Attendees will come from a wide range of industries and sectors but they will share a common goal: everyone wants to learn how to use LinkedIn effectively and grow their lead bank or business as a result.

I think I know quite a lot about using LinkedIn. Do I have to attend your Stage 1 course or can I skip straight to Stage 2?

It is recommended that you attend the Stage 1 LinkedIn training course before Stage 2, simply to ensure that you get the most out of the training and experience. A number of vital areas are covered during Stage 1 and these are essentially the building blocks that are developed and built upon during Stage 2. Everyone who attends the Stage 2 LinkedIn training course should have the same basic knowledge in order to maximise the group’s learning experience.
