I answered Marty Qatani from MartyToons.com‘s follow up questions about Linked In on the Creative Independence group on Linked In. Also, sorry Marty, I believe I called you Marty Quintas in the show.  Besides my answer to that question, there’re also a slew of great tips for improving your Linked In profile and even a way to post video to your account.

In this episode we mentioned that you should add your website to your Twitter profile, since it helps to make your Twitter profile more legitimate. However, something I should have mentioned but didn’t, because I forgot about it, is that if you are at a place in your life where you don’t have a website, portfolio or blog, its perfectly fine to link to your public Linked In profile. Your public facing Linked In profile is clean, professional, and works a whole lot better than linking to a Facebook profile that someone would have to friend you in order to see.
