I was reading The Daily Machete’s blog post titled Networking Resoultions for 2010 and saw that my buddy included one resolution about LinkedIn:
I resolve to update my LinkedIn status once per day and, if I’m not on LinkedIn.com yet, I will sign up immediately.
There are five resolutions on that post – you should be able to come up with your own five. I’ll share five of mine specifically for LinkedIn:
- Submit questions in LinkedIn Answers more frequently. At least once a month.
- Answer questions in LinkedIn Answers more frequently. I do this when I have down time, like in a hotel, at conferences, or when working on a brainless project… but I don’t do it enough. I won’t do it with lame, short, meaningless answers, though.
- Change my status at least every other week. I think Machete’s suggestion to do it daily is too much… I don’t want to hit my network that often (if they want to get more frequent updates they can follow me on Twitter).
- Review and update my LinkedIn Profile. I know there are areas that can be beefed up. Disregard the 100% complete measurement and make your Profile compelling and strong for humans, not for LinkedIn’s algorithm.
- Figure out how to get more value out of Groups. I’m disappointed and excited about the power of Groups… this year I’m going to wrap my brain around it and really figure out how to harness the power.
What about you – what might your LinkedIn Resolutions be for this year?
