I was recently thrilled to receive a positive testimonial from an attendee of one of my recent LinkedIn training sessions:
“I’m really enjoying LinkedIn at the moment and after recently attending a training event by the knowledgeable Nigel Cliffe, I found a great little gem of a tool built into LinkedIn that measures your personal brand across your network, low and behold I’m now at a 76% and perfecting my profile regularly!”
The very purpose of LinkedIn is to share insights that will help make life easier for those in your network. So, in the spirit of imparting advice and tips, I thought I’d draw your attention to the often underused and undervalued LinkedIn asset that my Connection, market consultant Daniel Cooke, alludes to in his kind review above.
The tool in question is the LinkedIn Social Selling Index (SSI). The handy tool gives you an overall score out of 100 based on how effectively you use LinkedIn for its intended purposes – relationship building, engaging and promoting your professional self!
The LinkedIn Social Selling Index gives you 4 separate scores out of 25 telling you how good you are at:
The helpful tool also compares your overall LinkedIn SSI score to the average overall score of people in your industry.
Log into LinkedIn and find your unique SSI score here. LinkedIn updates it every day to give you an indication of how you can get the most out of it.
The tool is at its best when you use it to improve your LinkedIn engagement and monitor your progress, depending on which areas you are lacking in:
What’s more, if you click each of the four categories of rankings, you are treated to a quick slideshow of tips on how to improve your use of LinkedIn in each category area.
