Visually Enhancing Your LinkedIn w/ Media

Visually Enhancing Your LinkedIn w/ Media

With LinkedIn being one of the world’s largest professional social networks, having over 225+ million members and growing, it is one of the best platforms to showcase your professionalism, build your strategic partners, and interact with your connections.

Earlier this year, LinkedIn released to the public the ability to visually enhance your profile. Unlike Pinterest and Facebook, you should keep this section professional with slideshows, videos, and portfolio feature materials that best represent your professional career. Why is this important? This gives your audience another reason to stay top of mind. If your content did not capture them to remember you, hopefully your visual presentation will. 

 What information is acceptable and visually enticing?

 To add media to your LinkedIn profile, you can simply upload a file or add a hyperlink. Screen Shot 2013-10-30 at 12.35.36 PMYou can add media under the following sections:

  • Summary
  • Experience
  • Education.

When you see the icon of a box with a plus sign, there is a drop down option that will allow you to upload your visual documents.Screen Shot 2013-10-30 at 12.36.12 PMScreen Shot 2013-10-30 at 12.36.20 PM
