Have you asked your customers and fans to contribute pictures and images to your social platforms?
If you’re not involving your community in creating and sharing visual content, you’re missing out on massive organic reach and engagement.
In this article I’ll show you how brands are empowering their fans to create and share visual content about them in really cool ways.
Why Ask Fans to Create Visual Content?
If you want organic sharing and big traffic, you need stunning and remarkable images that stand out in social feeds. But that doesn’t mean you have to rely on brand-generated visual content.
Do you want to know how to fix that?
It’s frustrating to be endorsed for skills that aren’t relevant to you or your networking goals. But hope is not lost!
In this article I’ll show you three ways you can guide people into endorsing you for relevant skills.
Why Manage LinkedIn Endorsements?
LinkedIn endorsements are meant to provide credibility and networking opportunities.
Has LinkedIn ever notified you that someone has endorsed you for skills and expertise that have absolutely nothing to do with your actual skills? Or worse, you don’t know the endorser at all, so how can he or she endorse any skills you have?
Sometimes people are endorsing you so you’ll see the notification and they’ll be on your radar. Other times, people are endorsing you because they’re friends or colleagues and they think they’re helping you.
Either way, if people are endorsing you for the wrong skills, then your real skills are being overlooked. Luckily, you can help people endorse you for the skills that really matter to you. Below I’ll show you how.
#1: Set Your Skills and Endorsements
If you want to control which skills are most prominent on your LinkedIn profile, set up the Skills & Endorsements section of your LinkedIn profile. This lets you subtly encourage others to use those skills when they endorse you.
If you don’t have the Skills section on your profile, go to Edit Profile and look to the right. You’ll see a list of sections recommended for you. Click on the Skills option to add it to your profile.

Is it her magical vocals or her higher Klout score?
And if Seth Godin (Klout score: 0) chooses not to interact on Twitter, does that mean he’s less influential than Uncle Pete, whose Klout score is 35?
These are some of the tricky questions that are being asked since the emergence of new systems that attempt to measure people’s online influence through “social scoring.”
But the question is this: How exactly is “influence” measured? And how do those who make such personal yet inflammatory verdicts decide the scores?
