Linkedin Tip - - Using Tags, Notes and Exporting Contacts
On Linkedin, there are some great ways to keep track of your contacts. And since I have a terrible memory, I love these tricks! Is anyone else using tags, notes or exporting contacts?
• TAGS: Create and edit tags on your contacts for tracking and email options (i.e. create a tag category for students you have met, guest speakers that have come to your events, recruiters, etc.). New tags can easily be added/created on your contacts page.
• NOTES: Add in details about how you met someone. I feel like I forget people’s names and how I met them too quickly, so I love this quick tool (located on the contact person’s profile, lower right hand side). Also, go to “edit notes” to add in additional details. For example, for one alumni guest speaker, I added in the note about who his HR person is and what her email address is. That way I don’t loss track of it!
• EXPORTING CONTACTS: You can export or download your contacts into an Excel spreadsheet. This can be done via the contacts tab at the bottom of the page. I couldn’t believe how easy it was!
