Most agents are on LinkedIn but don’t know how to use it to the benefit of their business. What are the biggest mistakes people make on LinkedIn, what’s the most successful type of content to post and what groups should you be a part of? LinkedIn expert Italina Kirknis shares her expertise and teaches valuable lessons on leveraging the platform.

Takeaways + Tactics

Post social content to LinkedIn only when it can be tied back into your work. Tweak it to make it more applicable to the platform.

As a business owner you want to have a broad network but you should do some screening.

Make sure you’re putting what distinguishes you in your profile.

Don’t get political, don’t get religious, and don’t rant, share positive things.

-Italina Kirknis

At the top of the show Italina told us about how she started her business during a career transition. She found that a lot of people have LinkedIn profiles but don’t actually use them. What people should be aiming to do is have real conversations. “People want to know their realtor because they are doing an important job for them, so make sure they see something great when they go to your profile,” said Italina.

When it comes to LinkedIn, what most people neglect is their profile. A common mistake is making the profile read like a resume, when you should actually aim to use it to build meat around your resume. People want to know what you’re interested in, and what communities you’re a part of. It’s also important to voice yourself through published posts and the content you share. Give people a look into your work and how you spend your days.

We went onto ask Italina if it’s a good idea to cross-pollinate the content you post on Facebook and other social sites on LinkedIn. Her rule is “make sure it always ties back to your work.” This might require some content tweaking. Next she shared her insights on audience and whether one should aim to be connected to a large sphere of people. She says being social is part of an agents job so it’s important to connect to a lot of people, but at the same time you can screen people who don’t have profile pictures or people who are not in a country you would ever do business. The best way to screen without judging from afar is to send a message to the person who invited you before you accept.  

Italina went onto to talk about:

  • How she branded herself and optimized her profile for her business
  • Using the right words to attract people to your profile
  • Making yourself easily memorable
  • Make sure your profile is selling you
  • Make sure you’re putting what distinguishes you in your profile
  • Joining the right groups

If you want to grow your sphere and increase your referrals, optimizing your LinkedIn profile to make sure it sells you will make a huge impact. Plug into people’s needs, make sure your content always ties back into your work and connect to as many people as possible. Remember that valuable connections matter.
