Can I recommend recommendations?
I’ve got over 170 recommendations that say I’m good at what I do, I’m a great guy to work with and to share a coffee with, but so what?
If you want to make it easy for people to buy from consider this: in a search only your name, professional headline, amount of connections (if less than 500) and the number of recommendations come up.
Now think: if you looked for a LinkedIn trainer and found a few on LinkedIn who would you click on? Most likely the one with the most recommendations, that’ll be me then !
