On February 9, 2016 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

One of our most popular blog posts ever has been about how to add a “View my LinkedIn profile” button to an email signature but it was so long ago that we thought it deserved an update. Just a couple of weeks back we published a stylish “View my company profile on LinkedIn” button which […]


How to remove ex employees from your LinkedIn Company Page

On February 1, 2016 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

One of the most common questions I am asked by administrators at the end of our company profile course is how to remove the ex employees that are still showing on their company profile. LinkedIn doesn’t make it obvious, or easy, to make it happen but does have some processes in place to help you once […]


Twelve profile photos I never want to see again on LinkedIn

On November 24, 2014 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

We all want a good photograph of ourselves to go with our LinkedIn profiles. I’ve seen many great personal photos on LinkedIn, but not all of them are the right choice for conveying a professional image. People read a lot into the photographs we choose to represent ourselves with. Put the wrong type of image […]


Recommendations are like gold on LinkedIn

On November 11, 2013 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

There are so many “experts” and “masters” of subjects out there (often just because they say they are!) and sometimes they’re not! Sadly social media and social networks are a great example of this but it equally applies to every profession. The ability to irrefutably reflect the value that you have shared with your clients, […]

So how do we filter through to find the person we need? I thought it […]


Has LinkedIn put a prettier face on your profile?

On August 30, 2012 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

After the recent changes to the home page LinkedIn has now moved on to give peoples profile presentation a makeover. On the plus side there is much more focus on the image, name and professional headline. Photographs have always been important  but now they’re supersized and even more so. The new format is simpler and hence much […]


How to ruin your reputation with recommendations on LinkedIn

On June 25, 2012 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

Now before you say “hang on James you said recommendations were good” –  yes they are but… There are recommendations and there are recommendations. When I was reviewing a company’s presence on LinkedIn their most recommended person had 24 recommendations, (look at my profile picture below to see where the number of recommendations is shown on […]


Giving it all away on LinkedIn

On June 18, 2012 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

If we were ever to meet at an event, in a networking meeting, a conference or in a coffee shop would you give me all of your client’s details and/or a full set of your personal information? Of course you wouldn’t! That would be commercial suicide and personal data protection would go out the window! […]


LinkedIn: Accessible but safe

On March 5, 2012 By James Potter - The Linked In Man

One thing that always surprises me about LinkedIn personal profiles that I see is how much some people put in that they shouldn’t, and how much they leave out that they should put in. We get rightfully upset when companies fail to protect our privacy, but sometimes we don’t help ourselves. The latest report from Javelin […]
