EP 1534 I build on a video I did to show you a simple way to build your LinkedIn traffic/connections and be more memorable.

In an earlier video called, "Becoming Memorable on LinkedIn," I talked about changing your public URL from the ridiculous URL that LinkedIn administers when you sign up to something more memorable, easier for people to remember, easy for you to remember

The problem was a forgot to say one thing and that is you have to commit you URL the memory too. I am reminded of that because I have had a couple of guests on Job Search Radio recently. These are people who do recruiting, both corporate HR and third-party recruiting, and, as part of their sign off on the show, at the people, "how can people reach you," I realized that they didn't remember their LinkedIn profile URL.

So I want to remind you folks that part of what you want to do to connect with more people is give out your URL to your LinkedIn profile. And to do that in 2 ways.

One is conversationally and thus it's important to have a memorable LinkedIn address/LinkedIn URL not just simply for you but for them, (and of course commit it to memory) and, number 2, is add it to your signature files in Outlook and add it whenever you send the message on LinkedIn so that, in this way, people have a way of connecting with you.

Making your URL memorable to you and not just simply others, including it in signatures will cause people to want to connect with you because most people don't do this.

So, again, remember, your LinkedIn URL. Put it in signature files. Offer it to people orally as you talk with them. You will find that a lot more people will be connecting with you.
