2. Does your LinkedIn title describe what you sell?

If you use words that go beyond just your duties (e.g. profit booster, opportunity developer, ROI enthusiast, etc.), your LinkedIn title describes what you sell. If you’ve just written what your current duty is (e.g. VP of marketing), you don’t describe what you sell.

3. Have you integrated keywords into your profile?

Good keywords describe the field in which your work in broad terms. Integrating keywords into your profile pushes you to the top of search results.

4. Do you regularly post on LinkedIn?

You should aim for 2 to 5 posts per week. If you post less than twice a week, think of ways to create more content that you can publish on a regular basis.

5. Is your current SSI score higher than 80/100?

Your SSI score is calculated from 4 categories worth 25 points apiece:

  • Building your professional brand;
  • Finding the right people;
  • Exchanging information;
  • Establishing connections.

Adding up your points in these categories gives you a score out of 100.

6. Do prospects make up at least 80% of your LinkedIn network?

Having many contacts in your network is of course a good thing, but if they aren’t your prospects, they aren’t helping you fulfill your growth objectives on LinkedIn. So, it’s important that your network be made up of professionals that are also future prospects.

If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, you are already a social seller and are already generating lots of new business opportunities with LinkedIn. If you answered “no” to two or more questions, this means that you need to work on your LinkedIn presence so you can obtain the results you desire. Let V3 Digital help.
