[00:00:00] - Right now, LinkedIn is a powerful tool for insurance producers. But if you're not using it to its full potential, you're missing out. Here are seven things to fix on your LinkedIn profile so you can start generating more leads and sales.

[00:02:55] - You have to be in creator mode. It'll allow you to put hashtags in your description. [00:04:12] - A lead magnet is something that adds value and solves a problem for your niche. It could be a blog or LinkedIn post, a video or a video series. The featured section is where you're going to draw people into your world.

[00:09:06] - Get at least three recommendations to fill up the section. Give first before you ask for anything in return. Better yet, try a random act of kindness.

[00:11:48] - If you've been in publications, feature it. Things that the public would generally be able to consume should be on your LinkedIn Page.

[00:12:21] - Pick a topic to focus on, something that you know a lot about as a producer. Write a short article that solves a problem related to that topic. Let the publisher syndicate it for free.
