Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video LinkedIn tools you can use, part of Growing Your Small Business with LinkedIn.
- [Instructor] Now let's take a look at a couple of additional LinkedIn tools you can use for you LinkedIn profile. Here we're gonna take a look at the URL customizer and the LinkedIn mobile app. The URL customizer lets you change your public profile to help others easily identify you in search results. To change your public profile, click the me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage, and then choose view profile. Here on your profile page click edit public profile and URL on the right side bar. And next under edit URL, click the pencil edit icon next to your public profile URL.
It should read linkedin.com/n/ your name. You can then type the last part of your new custom URL in the text box. For example, if the last part of your URL is currently your name you may want to change it to your business name, or some other easy to remember address. Your custom URL can have between five to 30 letters or numbers. Don't use spaces, symbols or special characters. When you're done, click save, and you'll have a new customized URL for your LinkedIn profile. Next, be sure to install the LinkedIn mobile app on your phone or tablet.
The mobile app allows you to perform many of the same tasks and functions of the LinkedIn desktop platform. This includes browsing member profiles, sending and receiving messages, and taking photos that can be edited, filtered, and uploaded to your LinkedIn profile all within the app. So it's easy to keep your profile up to date, even when you're away from your computer, by managing your profile from your phone or tablet.
