Have You Checked Out Your LinkedIn Search Stats Lately?

LinkedIn's Home Page Statistics

There is an area on your LinkedIn home page that tells you how many people have checked out your profile and even who they are!

You should make it a weekly practice not only to check those stats, but send a letter to the folks who have looked at your profile.

Here's an example of a letter I send to the folks who check out my profile:

Hello (Name) Make sure to personalize

I noticed you were checking out my profile yesterday.  Please let me know if I can help you in any way!

Then give them something valuable: Need help with LinkedIn?  Lots of tips here: http://linkedintobusiness.com/linkedin-tips-tricks/

Now you’ll notice that some of the results show “Anonymous LinkedIn User”.  That’s because they have hidden their visibility in “settings”.





You can do that too if you are researching your competition!

So what are the results?  Well, during the time it took me to take a few screen shots and write this blog, 3 of the four people I contacted with this letter wrote me back on LinkedIn - once with a request for some consulting work.  And the time it took me?  About 5 minutes!  Is that a good return on your time investment?

Monitoring your analytics – no matter what social media site you use is one of the best practices you can get in the habit of doing.  For more on social media monitoring, stay tuned!
