Your email signature
Including your LinkedIn URL in your email signature is one of the best ways to promote your profile.
In the “about me” section of your social profiles and personal blog, include a message inviting readers to connect with you on LinkedIn, and hyperlink the URL.
Your business card
Even if you’re currently employed, have a separate personal business card to use for personal networking endeavors.
In your comments on other people’s blog posts
If a reader likes what you have to say, sharing your profile link will give them an opportunity to connect with you and stay in touch.
LinkedIn group discussions
If you haven’t already, join industry-related groups and introduce yourself — LinkedIn will automatically link to your profile. Participate in group discussions, using sources like new studies, statistics, and white papers to back up what you say. Ask questions and share your opinion to inspire discussions. As you build relationships with other group members, invite them to connect with you.READ THE FULL STORY AT LINKEDIN
