Which are the benefits of becoming a service provider on LinkedIn and how can I add Service Page to my profile? If you have asked yourself these two questions, today is your lucky day, because you will find the answers in our article!
Becoming a service provider on LinkedIn enables you to showcase your services both on your profiles’ network and on your own. Fill in your Service Provider card on your profile to make sure that your services are visible and more potential customers will reach and connect with you. Thanks to this option, it is easier for them to ask questions about your business because they have the opportunity to contact you for free by sending a message. Also customers are allowed to write reviews about your work. Read more about this feature in one of our previous LinkedLetters.
Moreover, by adding your services you become part of LinkedIn’s Marketplace for services – LinkedIn ProFinder, and your name will appear when people search for certain services in the search bar. That will leverage your chance to be discovered, so don’t hesitate to use this feature.
This short article is a step-by-step guide on how to add Service Page to your LinkedIn account in order to position yourself as a service provider on the professional network.
