How to optimise your profile for more exposure on other people’s posts.

In my article on ‘how mentioning other people can help your brand’, I talk about how appearing in other people’s posts on LinkedIn can be beneficial to you.
However, someone can only mention you in their posts if you allow it. 
If you want to maximize your exposure on LinkedIn, it’s essential that you allow others to tag and mention you in their posts.
So, to ensure others can mention and tag you in on posts, this is what you need to do:

  1. Click on ‘Me’ icon at the top right of the home page
  2. Under ‘Account’ click on ‘Settings & Privacy’
  1. Under the ‘privacy’ tab, scroll down to ‘Mentions or tags by others’ and click on it
  1. If it says ‘no’ toggle there and it will say ‘yes’
  1. The new setting will save automatically

So now you have potentially increased the number of people who can see your posts and engage with you on LinkedIn. If, however, you came across a post which mentioned you in a negative way or which could harm your brand, or the photo tagged is really not one you want people to see, you can ‘untag’ or ‘unmention’ yourself.  (article on that coming soon!).

Ditch the dull keynote speeches in favour of fun-filled, laughter-inducing groups and seminars that get the audience involved from the get-go.

I’m bubbly and vivacious by nature, which you’ll find out in my presentations. 

I strive to appeal to those across sectors and disciplines, whether it be to those in more traditional professional roles, such as senior executive management, or those who are solopreneurs, freelancers or working in creative industries.

I ended up leaving my day job behind and achieved a diploma in Social Media Marketing. I set up Sarah Clay Social to help businesses promote themselves on social media. While using various platforms to promote my business, one stood out – LinkedIn. I seemed to attract new clients without really trying. All without a cheesy sales pitch and just by being myself. 

I was astonished by the success I had with LinkedIn and couldn’t get over how handy my childhood techniques had been. I realised that all the tools I’d learnt as a child were immensely useful! Soon after, I realised that other business owners weren’t using LinkedIn to its fullest potential. 

That’s why I’ve made it my mission to help business owners, just like you, harness the power of LinkedIn and be more successful in business.

Are you ready to leverage LinkedIn’s potential?
