Congratulations!
You are on the very first step to a stunning LinkedIn profile!

This questionnaire was designed to gather the necessary information so we can provide you with a compelling, engaging, and professional LinkedIn profile.

    Strategy

    Your LinkedIn goal
    Many of our clients tell us they are looking to brand themselves online. Some people are selling a product. Others are trying to network more effectively. What are you hoping to accomplish by having an optimized profile? What do you want out of LinkedIn?

    Your target audience
    Try to get as specific as possible. Recruiters for Healthcare, c level executives at mid- to large-size companies, technology managers in New York City, etc...

    Your main keywords
    Think in terms of the words a person would use to try to find you if they did not know your name. What product or service do you sell? Which words describe what your product or service does for clients? What are your skillsets, specialties, or core strengths? What software programs do you use? What is your industry? Please note: "Dynamic, professional, creative, etc." are NOT keywords.


    Summary

    What is your elevator pitch?
    The elevator pitch is a short, 30-60 second well crafted business pitch telling someone who you are and why they should want to hire/work with you. For example: "I help companies/individuals achieve..." what results?

    Why did you chose this career?

    What do you love about your job?

    How do you help clients? If we are your client/employer what are you going to do to for us to make our lives/business better?

    What outcomes should they expect from working with you? Write at least three things that your clients/employers get when working with you.

    What are three questions you might ask to qualify your reader as a potential prospect?
    Here is an example: Do you want to stand out on LinkedIn? Do you want to find new clients/job on LinkedIn? Do you want it now? As you can see if all your answers are YES, then you are in the right place, filling this form. Based on this example, what three questions would you ask from your clients?

    Which of your personal attributes have been most beneficial to you in your career? Don't forget to explain why.

    Main accomplishments that shaped your career?
    Think of events or projects that shaped your career path and make you proud. What was the impact of these accomplishments on you or your business and customers?

    Who have you mentored and how did your guidance affect that person, your team, your department, and your company? You can skip if it's not relevant, but keep in mind that most employers appreciate if you have these qualities.

    How do you describe your leadership style? Just like at the previous question, you can skip if it's not relevant.

    What is your corporate/professional/career philosophy?

    What is your goal moving forward? / What do you hope to achieve in short/long term?
