Donna Serdula is the founder of VisionBoardMedia.com and she loves helping people tell their story while building a powerful professional brand. Her mission is to help professionals take control of their internet presenct and present themselves in a way that inspires, impresses, and builds their abilities, products and services. I have been aching to do more shows focused around social media due to the importance and growth of these platforms. It was truly a pleasure to have Donna on the show and her knowledge within LinkedIn is truly amazing.
During this interview, I was able to learn quite a bit about LinkedIn and how important this particular platform is to my overall social signal. I asked several questions and would have loved more time, but we had enough time to learn about the most important aspect of LinkedIn and that was where to start. Whether you are new to LinkedIn or you have been on this site for a while, there are many changes going on that you should be aware of.
Donna has been on LinkedIn since 2005, and while she says she is not an early adopter of the site, she has positioned herself as a leader on LinkedIn with nearly 20,000 followers through consistently updating her profile nearly 15 times each day. While this may seem like a lot, this is necessary in today’s online market place in order to get your message out in a crowded space. Make sure that you take the time to complete your profile because when people want to learn more about you, you need to share a story about yourself in the best light.
For many people, writing is difficult to say the least. It’s hard to make sure you are adding the right things to your profile based on what goals you hope to acheive. Donna created LinkedIn-Makeover.com, which also happens to be the name of her book, LinkedIn Makeover – Professional Secrets to a POWERFUL LinkedIn Profile, where she and her staff will tell your story and build your professional brand by creating a profile that will help connect you with target prospects and companies that are looking for your expertise.
Whether you are looking for gainful employment or selling products and services, having a complete LinkedIn profile is sure to increase your exposure. Many of the people on LinkedIn are high-level executives and decision makers. This is a great platform for business of all kinds. The more you participate on this network, the more opportunity you will have to get your dream job or do business with people you like.
