media I release videos just like this
every week and you definitely don't want
to be missing out on them one of the
simplest things we can all do with our
LinkedIn profiles is make a custom URL
for our name but it's equally one of the
things that most people just don't get
around to doing now you're possibly even
asking mark what is a custom URL well if
you go to the top of your LinkedIn
profile you will see it's www LinkedIn
forward slash and then it will be your
name or your business name LinkedIn
allows you to do that and that's called
a customized URL now if you don't
actually do it you end up with this big
long jumbled code and it looks a little
bit ugly so in this video I'm just going
to show you how to take away that ugly
looking jumbled code and make it into a
customizable URL with your name or your
business name all these little things
are the little one percenters that add
up in the online world it will make you
look a little bit more professional it
will actually help with the search
results in LinkedIn the more people that
can find you on LinkedIn the more
opportunities will flow so let's go to
some live screen action now where you
can follow my mouse and I will show you
how to make a customized URL for your
LinkedIn profile one so here we are on
my LinkedIn profile mark Warnken if we
aren't yet connected on LinkedIn by all
means send me a connection request I
would love to welcome you into my
network who knows what opportunities
might inflow for both of us so going to
the top of my profile here WWE LinkedIn
com /i in
mark Warnken there is my customized URL
already in action so that's what we want
to get to just makes it a little bit
nice and neat become searchable in
LinkedIn remembering LinkedIn is many
things but it equally is a giant
database and a search engine so and it's
one of the simplest things we can all do
but equally it's one of those things
that so many people tend to miss out on
and they just forget it so that's what
the objective we're trying to get to and
then once it's done it's done and you
can then forget about it so let's go to
my newsfeed and see if we can find some
other connections of mine who don't have
a customized URL Anthony I'm connected
to he's a fellow was he does some great
things so I know he does here we go Dan
Dan's a first-level connection of mine
let's click on Dan into profile and see
what his URL comes up with here we go so
this is a good example LinkedIn comm /d
n-- - claw claw were and see it's got
this little bit of code at the end so
it's only something very simple it's
just one little thing that Dan could do
to tidy up his LinkedIn profile a little
bit more so there's an example of not a
customizable LinkedIn URL so scrolling
back to my newsfeed let's see if we can
find another one now as well
okay so Dan we found Simon Dianna's
another fellow Aussie she does some
great stuff on LinkedIn I know she does
as well here we are Kirk
Kenny sales trainer at freight liners
Grand Rapids in Michigan love his
profile love what he's doing but again
see up the top linkedin.com /tao in /qu
- kenny and then it's got the jumbled
code after that so that's what we're
trying to avoid we're just trying to
tidy it up as per my one here so how do
we actually do that how do we go and
change the customizable and make it a
customizing URL LinkedIn make it very
simple look at this over here on the
right hand side edits your public
profile and URL so when we click on that
it's going to take us to a new screen
edit your custom URL personalize the
URL for your profile www linkedin.com
ford /i n forward slash mark 1 can we
click on the pen and this is how simple
it is we would be able to take out that
jumble code and add your own personal
name your business name or a combination
of both and that's how simple it is and
once you press save then if you say now
your URL is just like any website it's
unique to you so my suggestion would be
to try and grab your name first you
might then have to you know add a second
name if your if your name is a common
name and it's already taken you might
want to add a combination of your name
in your business name but try and get
your custom URL up and running as I say
you press save and then it is all done
the end result is that when someone's
looking for you on LinkedIn it's gonna
help slightly with the search results
just tidies up your linkedin profile as
well makes everything look a little bit
neater and makes you look that 1% extra
professional in the eyes of everyone
online so there we go hopefully you
found this video informative
entertaining and helpful and you now
have a customizable Linkedin URL whether
it be your own name or your business
name or a combination of both I would
love to hear from you put your
customized Linkedin URL below in the
comment section and I will check out
your LinkedIn profile that way we can
also maybe connect on LinkedIn as well
