If you want more people to connect with you one way to make it easy for them is to put your email address in your name. I do a lot of searching by “connections” and have observed that many of the most connected people on linked have their email address as part of either their name or their occupation. A place where it is easy to find.
Adding your your email address to your name is very easy start by going to the “Profile” tab and choosing “edit profile”. Now you will see your profile and there will be a small “edit” button next to your name. Click the “edit” button. Below your last name is a box that says “Former/Maiden Name”. If you enter your email address there and save your changes your email address will show in between your first and last name. You may wish to add the either “LION” or “Open Networker” along with your email address. This will let others know you are open to meeting new folks on Linkedin.
