Thinking about hiring a LinkedIn profile writing service or a LinkedIn profile writer for a makeover of your LinkedIn profile? Having a professional LinkedIn profile matters more than ever in the digital age, whether you’re a job seeker, an entrepreneur, or an executive leader of a Fortune 500 Company.
Why Hire a LinkedIn Profile Writer?
Today, there are over 500 million LinkedIn users and 3+ million LinkedIn business pages. Every two seconds, someone new joins LinkedIn.
88 of Fortune 100 companies use LinkedIn to search for candidates, and 94% of recruiters search for candidates on LinkedIn.
Writing a powerful LinkedIn profile also requires a deep understanding of a person’s background and career story, their industry, their skill sets, as well as using the platform to maximize the individual’s brand. Wendi’s LinkedIn presence has garnered media interviews, top-tier clients, and positions writing for major publications. LinkedIn is not about having 30,000 followers and content views. It is about using the platform in a robust way to showcase your personal brand so the right people find you and vice versa — that means a true strategy behind the message.
A professional LinkedIn profile is also a vital component of effective marketing for business owners. There are a number of statistics out there as to why every professional should have a LinkedIn profile. Full optimization of your LinkedIn profile ensures social networking success, career growth, and business profitability. With the influx of companies and recruiters searching for job candidates through LinkedIn, it is imperative for job seekers to have a LinkedIn profile that properly markets their skills and is not a mere copy and paste of their resume.
Your resume gets delivered to a hand-select number of people. However, your LinkedIn profile is viewable by millions of users. LinkedIn is your online resume and digital footprint. It is the first place people look to analyze and determine your professional value. In the digital age, it is vital to have a professional LinkedIn profile that stands out apart from the rest and one that effectively communicates your personal brand. This is why many professionals turn to hiring a LinkedIn profile writing service or professional LinkedIn profile writer like Wendi Weiner.
Before Hiring a LinkedIn Profile Writer, Make Sure They Are a LinkedIn Profile Expert
Before hiring any LinkedIn profile writer, compare how they brand themselves and look to see if they are a published industry authority on LinkedIn profile writing outside of their own company blog or website. For example, Wendi Weiner is a Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE), a pioneer certification that only a handful of resume writers hold. Wendi is trained in using the platform and she is a Certified Personal Branding Expert. Wendi speaks to global audiences on building a LinkedIn brand. Many “LinkedIn Profile Experts” are not certified and they are not skilled in the build-out of the profile. The writing component of LinkedIn is the most valued skill. Be wary of those claiming to be experts without the training and writing component. They will base their expertise on their followings (which they built in a short time) or social stats — many of those individuals are in engagement pods that are designed to “game” the algorithm. True expertise in writing LinkedIn profiles is a trained skill that requires a writing expert with a deep understanding of brand messaging and storytelling.
In June 2015, Wendi’s HuffPost article, “Why Your LinkedIn Profile is More Compelling than Your Resume,” gained international recognition with more than 20K views and 300+ social media shares. Wendi also put out a valuable article for the legal community in 2019 in the ABA Journal, “How to Build and Leverage Your Legal Brand on LinkedIn.”
