Build your credibility on other social platforms:

If you are planning to start in your new field of interest, it is likely that you will be considered as a guest speaker or invited by other professionals to give a presentation on their topic. You can build your brand by interacting on other social platforms.

How Startups Can Maintain Online Presence

For example, when you write your first post on Google+, start answering questions on HN or write useful discussions on Digg and Bitcointalk. You can even connect with bloggers and have a discussion over a blog post.

You can learn about other professionals on popular social media platforms and be useful to them.

Use Link Building Tools:

Using link building tools gives you an advantage as a newbie. For example, you can share your content on your social media accounts, build up your reputation, and link out to your blog articles and interviews (discover this info here).

Tools like Hubspot’s Competitor Analysis and Social Media Analyst (Moz) help you to find ways to leverage your visibility in relevant content.

Submit Content to Social Networks in a Professional Way:

It is important for you to build credibility on social networks before you try to start writing blogs and applying for positions. If you cannot explain your points on a blog, give presentations on Facebook, and have a website, you cannot expect to stand out from your peers.

If you don’t want to answer questions on social networks, you must answer the questions in the professional way. Answer questions on Facebook Answers, discuss your content on blog comments, and submit your articles to social networks in a professional manner.

Understand LinkedIn’s Content Guidelines and Content Standards:

Once you have written your content, we recommend you think about the formatting, formatting rules, and content standards on LinkedIn to ensure your content is compliant with the guidelines and standards.

If you don’t have a knowledge of LinkedIn, the guidelines and standards can be found on the website.
