Cardmunch is perfect for those who have difficulties keeping business cards without losing them! No need to worry about that anymore, all the people you meet become LinkedIn connections and you can easily find and contact them anytime you want.

 

  • WORDPRESS

Publish your blog posts on your LinkedIn profile and share them with your connections. It will automatically notify people in your network every time you post a new article. You can also opt to display your WordPress blog on your LinkedIn Profile and your LinkedIn Homepage, where it’ll display as a drag-and-drop module in the right-hand column.

Why we like it:

If you have a WordPress website and talk about things related to either your job or the sector you work in, you should definitely link it to your LinkedIn profile. It will liven up your profile and show your connections how much you like what you do and everything you know about it.

 

  • EVENTS

LinkedIn Events helps you discover the events you should attend to become a better professional. You can see personalised event recommendations based on your industry, connections, and more. Once you’ve found an event, make the right connections by browsing attendees you may want to meet, or by filtering the attendee list by current company or industry.

Why we like it:

If you like attending events and have a job where networking is important, then Events are made for you. Staying up-to-date on the most important events in your industry can be difficult. LinkedIn makes it easy for you thanks to a set of event recommendations and a search engine with controls to filter by industry, location, and time.
