The company profile is a brief introduction to your business, a kind of fan page so that others can subscribe.  You need to include your company details in the description, services, experience and contact information.  Tips: A complete profile is essential to relay information about what you are selling to potential clients or contacts.

2) Answer Questions

Give the answers made ​​to these forums LinkedIn is another way to circulate the name of the company, demonstrating their expertise in the area in which it operates.  Responses also attract a certain audience for your brand, increasing your credibility to other professionals.

    I have a website and I post articles there often. I use BusinessZoom Web Dashboard but everytime I share my article link on Linkedin or Facebook the thumbnail image never shows even if I always insert images in my article, instead it’s an empty box in thumbnail area which is really ugly. Can anyone tell me how to make the thumbnail show?? Thanks loads!!!

    Why are Linkedin friends offering so many recommendations about skills they don’t know about?

    Is the expectation that if you offer a recommendation about my skills, that I am supposed to reciprocate?

    On Linkedin I want to add different societies and activities that I am involved in under my education section. How do I make them be on different lines?

    I am connected to someone in LinkedIn , but i can’t see that person’s other connections.

  7. xiM Clutch Feb 5,2013 10:26 am

    When I click on one of my Linkedin conections, it results to be a 3rd degree connection. However, I see his updates and can completely access his profile. Nevertheless, the “Connect” button is visible. What does it mean?

    I have heard some information about LinkedIn. Is it useful when searching for a job? Do employers look at LinkedIn for potential candidates or when screening an applicant? Would it be beneficial for me to join? How do you go about networking yourself with others on the site if you do not know too many people?

  9. therundown2k3 Feb 5,2013 5:06 pm

    If you have your profile set to PRIVATE on LinkedIn, will visitors of the site be able to read the recommendations that your contacts give you on linked in.

    For example, your name is MIKE, and your contact named JAMES gives you a recommendation.

    Let’s say, GREG happens to browse through JAMES’ profile. Will GREG be able to see the recommendation that JAMES gives MIKE?

    I’m asking because I want to know if setting your profile to PRIVATE will also make your contact information invisible to those who visits your “friends/contacts” profile on LinkedIn.

    Cheers.

    I would prefer that connections in linkedIn (a social network) are NOT viewable UNLESS they join my network. I don’t want to inadvertently give out information of friends, colleagues and associates to anonymous persons.

    If I post a Twitter status, I would like it to also reflect on Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook. I know there is an app for Facebook to do this but is there something more universal?

    How well do you need to know someone before adding them on LinkedIn?

    I was at a conference a few weeks ago and met a lot of people. Is it ok to add someone on LinkedIn even if I only met them once and maybe spoke to for half an hour? Can I contact people whose presentations I have sat through but I didn’t talk to long?

    I’m getting very frustrated looking for an engineering job, so I’m trying to find other strategies to land my first engineering job. Human resources sucks, so I’m going ahead and sending my job applications to company employees. So my question is: is it appropriate to contact company employees on LinkedIn and send them my resume and cover letter?

  14. Dana G Feb 12,2013 3:49 pm

    I keep being sent emails asking me to accept someone who wants me to accept them on LinkedIn but what is it?

    I’m trying to find a website so I can raise money for my cousin’s daughter who has a type of bone cancer. I swear I seen a website where if people gave enough money the person would do something (in my case i’d shave my head and quit smoking if I raised enough, hell if I raised any). I really wanna do something but I’m limited in what I can do so any help is greatly appreciated.

    It was doing great for a long time but it’s been a while now that it’s been very bad, basically there’s no business and I thought to myself that he could really use some advertising. What should I do? Or atleast if it’s not for me to do I’ll pitch the ideas to him..
