That automatically rang a bell. LinkedIn is dying to get your content. Or do you get alarms from other social media to remind you of using them?

5 Visibility Tips on LinkedIn

Are you really sure you want to be more visible on LinkedIn?

I'm asking that to you because I've been observing a standard behavior among people who reach me out wanting help to re-brand their professional presence on LinkedIn.
