There is a pretty cool LinkedIn secret that can gain more business. Did you know that you can join LinkedIn’s Profinder and get listed on their website?
Okay it might not be a LinkedIn secret, you might actually know about this and be on there. But for a lot of people they don’t know. LinkedIn Profinder is a free service that hooks up people who are searching for professionals in their area with your profile on LinkedIn.
If you have the appropriate skills your profile will pull up in the search results. So for a lot of people, who have been working there LinkedIn profiles they are going to be able to apply for the program and get accepted and then they will come up in search results for when people are looking for specific business professionals.
For example, when I was searching for web developers in Billings I noticed that these people from Missoula we’re coming up and not that many from Billings are coming up on Profinder and I was at all wow how do I sign up for this and I went and this is how you sign up for the service.
Go to your LinkedIn profile and click the work icon in the upper right-hand corner there will be a drop down menu and from that drop down menu select LinkedIn Pro.
When on this profile, click on your name in the upper right hand corner and the drop-down says “are you a pro?” Click on that and fill out the profile, it’s really simple and quick and easy to do and submit and that’s it! Now you will be able to bid on jobs as they come up in the ProFinder platform and it is a great way to expand your business for free.
