17 LinkedIn Profile Must-Haves

17 LinkedIn Profile Must-Haves is a how-to infographic that walks the reader through optimizing their LinkedIn profile page.  Published by MarketMeSuite working with Maximize Social Business.com’s Neal Schaffer.

This year has been a big one for LinkedIn. With new features like the Creative Portfolio Display, you now have the ability to visually showcase your professional portfolio. But before diving any deeper with the latest add-ons, does your LinkedIn profile have all the elements that will help you rise to the top? This new infographic has all the tips you need to elevate your LinkedIn profile: 17 LinkedIn Profile Must-Haves!  Everyone can use great tips, so please share the LinkedIn love!

Great design using a mock LinkedIn profile as the background.  The callouts are clearly connected to the appropriate areas on the profile.  There’s a lot of text, but in this case I think most of it is necessary to clearly explain each point.  The reader can work off of this infographic without any additional research on other sites.

The statistics at the bottom should have been better visualized.  Mixing the 50.5% stat with the profile complete percentage visual from LinkedIn is confusing.  Also, it was difficult for me to find the original infographic landing page.  The footer should have the URL for readers to find the full-size original version of the infographic.  The source list text is too small to read too.

Thanks to Martin Mosler for post on Google+!

Confusing to say the least. Info graphics that don't clearly do their job. Why are there disconnected items, where is the flow, and why is the circle at the bottom not full, does it represent the 50% or the 100% complete....oh neither, say what.

Infographics: this months buzzword but basically a confusing chart. Haven't seen a decent one yet

Great post. Keywords in profile is so much true. The mention about the use of formal profile photograph is also a fact that most users don't give significance to. Thanks.

This is highly informative. Thank you for posting this infographic.
Many users don't customize their URL and neither do they include any contact information. It's important to have a good headline as that is the first thing that shows up in your search result.
