Design your LinkedIn strategy with the LinkedIn Canvas with Luigi Centenaro
Your LinkedIn® presence enshrines your digital identity. Just search Google to see your LinkedIn profile appear at the top of the search results. Anyone looking for you online will see the same. With a single click, they land at the front door of your most important and interconnected "digital home". But who exactly are they looking for? Customers? Recruiters? Colleagues? Partners?
Will what they find engage them? Or will they simply take advantage of the convenient "other profiles like this" list and go elsewhere? The problem is that regardless of who visits your professional profile on LinkedIn, you only have one opportunity to grab their attention.
While you have probably read countless articles on how to optimize your LinkedIn® profile, you’ve probably never been certain you are employing the best strategy, and, as you are no doubt well aware, your competitors are only a click away. In fact, the real challenge is not writing a NICE profile, nor is it learning Linkedin’s tricks. Instead, you need to write RIGHT, know WHY you are writing, know WHAT to write and precisely WHO to target.
The "secret" lies in not treating LinkedIn® as little more than an online CV, but to use it as a tool to generate opportunities that are specifically tailored to you. This is true whether you are Networking, Social Selling, or “simply” looking for a new job or more customers…
The LinkedIn Canvas
The LinkedIn® Canvas will allow you to rapidly build a profile and a content strategy using key Personal Branding concepts. In this way your profile will precisely match what your target audience is looking for. Most LinkedIn profiles simply fail to target the right people!
A visual approach based on cutting-edge trends such as Design Thinking: The Linkedin Canvas is the most effective way to design your Personal Branding strategy on LinkedIn.
The easy to use process helps you identify and enhance your promise of value and shows how you can put yourself in front of the right audience.
Seven intuitive blocks and many incisive questions to help you get to the big picture quickly and help you rapidly identify what needs changing.
The Linkedin Canvas contains tips to help you move from the "design" stage of your strategy using post-it and markers, to the completion of your LinkedIn profile text. It also includes advice on the photo you should use and how to write the summary.
