Are you tired of experimenting on LinkedIn with no tangible results to show for it? Well, we’ve all been there before! Whether you are looking for contractual work or high paying clients, LinkedIn is certainly not for the faint-hearted.

The first time I joined this professional social network, I almost gave up. I didn’t know where to start my search for clients or even where to look for short-term jobs. Fortunately, I discovered my mistake – I was not generating enough leads.

So what did I do? Well, I had to go back to the drawing board and re-strategize on a new approach. Lucky for you, all your struggles on LinkedIn are finally coming to an abrupt end. I am going to share with you the top LinkedIn strategies for freelance designers wanting to find high-paying jobs and land long-term clients.

So let’s get down to business…

A. Develop the Ultimate LinkedIn Profile

Listen! Your profile is your gateway to landing freelancing jobs and high-paying clients. Unfortunately, many freelance designers do a terrible job when it comes to creating their LinkedIn profiles.

Well, here’s some free advice for you. Do not be like the rest. Take your time to fill out all the sections of your profile and focus on highlighting your strengths and skills.

Your profile should consist of a client-focused summary that includes information about your experience, background, education and services. Additionally, make sure you update your profile constantly after every few weeks.

An “All-Star” profile will grab the attention of potential clients and make you stand out from the rest. According to LinkedIn, you are 40 times more likely to land lucrative freelancing jobs if your profile is complete.

B. Make Incredible Connections

The essence of joining a platform like LinkedIn is to connect and interact with like-minded professionals and industry experts, in anticipation of landing lucrative contracts and high paying clients.

To attain this objective, you need to network and build relationships relevant to your profile. Interestingly, you don’t even need to know them on a personal level.

Ideally, your network should consist of a wide array of individuals ranging from potential clients to fellow freelancers. After all, the bigger your network, the more chances of getting clients and finding appealing jobs.

A good way to build connections is to reach out to those who view your profile and send out personalized connection requests to prospective clients.
