Do Not Overlook Video On Your Linkedin.com Profile!  

As most readers may know, Linkedin.com is a very popular business and professional networking site on the web.  In fact, most people use it to stay in touch with their professional contacts; some people use it to promote their businesses; some people use it to network for new jobs, and business related opportunities.  However, as more and more people continue to use Linkedin.com, what can you do to make your profile page stand out from the rest of the pack using the networking site?  If you are currently using Linkedin.com, what if you could add your video to your Linkedin.com profile?   What if you could use any video that promotes your business, or helps the public understand what you offer, and how you can help them?  Well, I recently found a way to do this through using Google Presentation Application in conjunction with Linkedin.com.   The ability to add video to your Linkedin.com profile has only recently become possible so not many people know about this.

For those of you who already have video on your website, and you have uploaded your video to the video sharing sites, uploading video to your Linkedin.com profile is a more creative way to show your contacts who you are, and what you can offer since most of the people on Linkedin.com do not have video on their profiles.  You already invested time and money in your videos so you should maximize their use whenever you can; besides it is free, and helps you stand out to showcase your practice or trade. As everyone knows, each day more and more potential clients and business opportunities are searching Linkedin.com profiles.  In fact, recent statistics have shown steady growth of the use of Linkedin.com world-wide in 2010; some statistics suggest the growth is comparable to what Twitter is doing in growth.  Also, using Linkedin.com is another great way of obtaining “back links” back to your website for those of you concerned about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  This idea is yet another reason to invest in video if you have not already done so.

In order to get your video on your Linkedin.com profile, you will have to add Google Presentation Application to your profile by clicking on your “add an application” button on your profile.  However, to make it even easier for you, reelsocialmedia.com has done a great video on how to do it step-by-step, and it is available for free on youtube.com.  Just search “How To Add, Embed Video on Linkedin” when you log onto www.youtube.com.  It is easy to follow and should get you rolling in minutes!  If you have any questions, or need to contact me I can be reached at [email protected].  I wish everyone much success with this creative way to display their business videos on Linkedin.com.
