As a LinkedIn Group Administrator I have the power to accept or decline access to my Group.
LinkedIn flags certain profiles as a help… here’s a snapshot of three that are flagged:
I rarely take time to check those Profiles out. I just uncheck the box on the left (which I already did) and then approve the rest.
One person had ONE connection, but I could tell from her Profile that she was real, so I approved her… but the rest… OUT.
You have to look legitimate. A picture helps. A headline helps. A summary helps… work experience helps. Recommendations help. Connections help…
If you want others to not even think “is this a spammer,” get serious about your Profile!
