If You Want Lots Of Connects, Make It Easy

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.

If you believe this tip or any tips in this blog will contribute to the success of your Linkedin experience I hope you will give me just a few minutes of your time to help with my success and share my linked in profile with some of your connections.  Please read the “If My Tips Help You, Please Help Me” section of the blog to find out how to help me.  You will find this section next to where it says home at the bottom of the picture on this page.   By following this suggestion it will help you with your network too.

Basically I am just a tax nerd, have been all my life. However I have found the more open you are to opportunities the better off you will be in this world. That makes my what is know as an open networker on Linkedin, I will connect with anyone. I am not an expert on Linkedin by any means but one day when I was asking someone to connect I mentioned that I had just been refilled on invites. My new connect asked how I did that. I used that same line for the next month and got asked the same question four times. I started thinking there was a lot of little things it took my sometime to learn. Through this blog I plan to share some of those "Linked Secrets"
