Many LinkedIn users are unaware they can add media to their summary. Uploading media offers insight into your life as an account manager and makes your profile unique.
Uploading media to your LinkedIn summary is a great way of making yourself stand out.
But, as an account manager, what type of media would be appropriate to upload to your summary?
- Images related to your account management roles - Make use of free image creating platforms, such as Canva, to create attractive images that showcase your successes as an account manager. This might involve including a brief overview of your sales accomplishments and the products/services you sell.
Video introduction - Record a short video to introduce yourself. Describe your career as an account manager and touch on how you add value to employers. Keep your video professional and short, no more than one minute in length.
Adding videos to your summary makes it more personal and provides you with a stronger platform to build connections.
Articles - Have you appeared in online articles in a professional capacity? If so, upload the articles to your LinkedIn summary. Adding articles you’ve been featured in helps you come across as an authority in your field.
