OCT 23 |Social Branding Analyst Certification: Registration Closes October 20

LinkedIn has become the most important personal branding tool for career-minded professionals (and companies), yet the majority of people don't know how to use it to their benefit.

You can change that for your clients!

This innovative certification gives you everything you need to help your clients to build stellar branded LinkedIn profiles and use LinkedIn to expand their thought-leadership, grow and nurture their network, and do their job better.

Imagine how you and your clients will stand out with a truly branded profile! Imagine how eager clients will be to engage with you–a trusted expert certified in 3D branding LinkedIn profiles that dig deep enough to truly engage a reader and create a connection.

Unlike most LinkedIn training, our program is built on a platform of personal branding.

It provides context, real-world strategies, and new tools so coaches and writers can help their clients craft an efficient, integrated social media strategy built around the differentiation, power, and value of their personal brand.

We integrate secrets and tips for maximizing LinkedIn, sharing advice you won't find elsewhere. And we update the program annually to reflect the ever-changing LinkedIn landscape.

The result?

Your clients gain competitive advantage and increase their influence and confidence. They expand their brand community. They increase their performance and reach their goals. And so do you!
