LinkedIn has the ability to showcase your talents with pictures and video.
You can easily share your unique professional story using rich, visual content on your LinkedIn profile…content that still further differentiates you from everyone else in your field and gives more depth to what you already have on your profile.
This also means you can illustrate your greatest achievements in the form of stunning images, compelling videos, innovative presentations and more.
For instance, if you’re photographer you might choose to include several of your best photos, or if you’re a copywriter you might upload a video of that ad you wrote for last year’s Super Bowl.
From the analyst who makes annual predictions on tech trends to the 3D animator who is looking to fund a new short film, the opportunities are limitless for how you as a professional can now use your LinkedIn profile to help showcase your unique stories in a visual way.
On the flip side of the equation, people viewing your profile on LinkedIn can now also like or comment on media you’ve posted there.
A sharing option — for sharing content you find interesting with others — is also in the works according to LinkedIn.
It’s simple and easy to add media to your LinkedIn profile.
Just click the “Edit” button on your profile or the “Edit Profile” link under your Profile tab, and follow the prompts in the summary, education and experience sections.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg for what’s in store for you as a LinkedIn member…
LinkedIn will be finding new ways to bring this type of rich media across your LinkedIn experience, so stay tuned here and I’ll let you know as more becomes available.
Because after all, the more compelling your profile is, the better your results on LinkedIn will be…and visuals are the most compelling content there is!
