82% of buyers will look up a seller on LinkedIn before replying to a seller’s prospecting efforts.


Which begs the question: How are you showing up on LinkedIn?

What does your profile look like and what does it say about you?

Your profile is a reflection of who you are and the value you can deliver. And when more than 8 in 10 buyers will look you up before engaging with you, it’s imperative that your profile is up-to-date, professional, and speaks to your target buyers.
