Many people ask me if I find clients through LinkedIn.  I tell them absolutely YES!

With a background in marketing, social media and sales, I’ve assisted many past clients with  positioning themselves in a unique way, finding ways to highlight their differences from their competition.  

So how do you do that with a business purpose on social media?   Specifically on LinkedIn?  

With everyone’s attention spans getting shorter, all of us have less time to make that all important “first impression”.   So it’s the little things that can truly make a difference.

 

Using symbols in your LinkedIn profile is a great way to help your headline stand out from the crowd, (as well as your summary and previous work positions).  In addition, it can also provide a little separation between the text in your longer sections, making it much easier on the eyes.

You can do this the hard way – open up a font that includes symbols, type out every key on your keyboard to see what each symbol looks like,

✯or✯ (drum roll please)

just find some symbols you like from my handy list below and copy and paste them over to your LinkedIn profile.

To make this task super easy and save you tons of time, I’ve provided a list of symbols you can choose.  (Don’t you love me?!)

☛ Don’t go too crazy though… just a few to make your point is enough.  (See how I made a nice point there with the pointing hand?)
