Paul Haarman shares The Top 10 LinkedIn Features you’re not using enough

Here are Top 10 LinkedIn Features:

1. Update multiple sections at once with the Activity Feed tool.

The Activity Feed lets you keep up to date on what your connections are doing and also allows you to update your status and activity broadcasts with a single click says Paul Haarman. You can even upload media directly from here without needing to visit other pages or tabs within LinkedIn [Editors note: That is very useful!]. This feature is especially helpful for those who do not own companies but still want their profile to look more professional. By using this activity feed, it makes it look like they’re always working on something cool and – better yet – receiving some recognition for their efforts….

2. Use the In Mail tool to reach out to potential clients or other professionals.

The In Mail feature allows you to send messages directly to other LinkedIn members, even if you don’t have their contact information. This can be a very powerful tool for networking and building relationships with potential clients or others in your field. Just be sure to personalize your messages as much as possible and only send them to those who would be interested in what you have to say…

The Skills & Endorsements section allows you to highlight four top skills from your profile so they appear on your summary says Paul Haarman. This can be a great way to show off the skills that you are most proud of and that you feel best represent you. You can also ask your connections to endorse you for these skills to increase your credibility…

6. Use the Groups tool to find potential clients or employment opportunities.

LinkedIn’s Groups tool can be a great way to connect with others in your industry or field. You can use this tool to find potential clients, employees or even just networking opportunities. There are groups for almost every topic imaginable, so it’s likely that you’ll be able to find one that is relevant to you. Just be sure to read the group rules before posting anything and always act respectfully towards others…

If you are constantly hiring new employees, one of the best ways to find them is to look through your LinkedIn network says Paul Haarman. The LinkedIn Jobs tool connects you with people who are currently seeking employment at other companies or even those that are looking for a career change. You can also make recommendations from your connections and let companies know when one of your contacts sends over an applicant…

10. Use the Intro tool to make a first impression with others.

The Intro tool allows you to send a personalized connection request message along with a list of shared connections and mutual friends when connecting with someone else on LinkedIn. This is a great way to personalize the connection request and immediately connect with them based on shared connections. You can also use this tool when sending a connection request to let them know why you’re interested in connecting with them in particular…


Paul Haarman says In the end, becoming a LinkedIn Power User isn’t necessarily about knowing every little thing about LinkedIn. Instead, it’s more about gaining general knowledge of all the other things you can do to maximize your LinkedIn experience and make it work for you. Being able to adapt to change quickly while staying up-to-date on industry news is what separates a power user from a regular standard user. So get out there and increase your influence!
