In the past two lessons we’ve covered:
- Having a digital mindset to empower yourself.
- Creating your Digital Style System to know where you’re going and feel progress and achievement.
- Knowing your online audience.
- Owning your story and presenting your unique style.
May you already be feeling a sense of wonder and achievement.
Keep pondering and wondering – it’ll deliver the magic and presence online that is useful to your audience.
If you haven’t seen the first two lessons, I recommend checking them out.
EACH LESSON IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT CREATES AN ONLINE STYLE THAT WORKS FOR YOU EVERY DAY!
Everything I’m teaching you builds on the next. Here comes Lesson 3!
#4: Right tools & sites.
You’ve worked out where your online audience hangs out. This is key to working out where you want to be online.
Another helpful insight is the sites that you enjoy (or sites you think you might enjoy with more understanding).
Working out your online sites is a balance of your audience’s preference and what you tend to.
Create your LinkedIn profile.
If you’ve not yet started a LinkedIn account use this link or do a Google search:
setup linkedin account.
Follow the instructions to setup your LinkedIn.
Add your simple career history and add your photo. Here are LinkedIn photo tips:
Let’s get our LinkedIn Style ON!
When polishing your LinkedIn profile keep in mind who you wish to attract to your online profile and how you’d like them to perceive you.
Let go of your LinkedIn needing to be perfect straight away – get in and have a go.
Grab a copy of The LinkedIn Style book to improve your LinkedIn quickly. It includes many successful professionals’ LinkedIn profiles to inspire your words, imagery, links and more.
Create your website.
This lesson gives you a sense of accomplishment in the form of quickly creating your own website. Here’s how:
1. Click on about.me and create an account.
Hopefully close at hand is a photo of you or an image that reflects you or the work you do. In the spacey examples above Elon Musk, who works in energy, space & transport, has a site with an image of a rocket taking off.
2. Add your LinkedIn profile link to your new about.me site. Here’s how.
If you’re unsure how to find your LinkedIn profile link do a google search – e.g. “How do I find the link to my LinkedIn”.
If you don’t yet have a LinkedIn account, make a note to update your about.me site with your LinkedIn link later.
