Back to basics Tuesday: list a mobile phone number in your Contact Details

Short and sweet (and I may have already said this, but I am amazed at how people make it difficult to contact them on LinkedIn), so it’s worth repeating:

  • A mobile phone is most people’s preferred method of communicating.
  • Accordingly your cell number should be listed in your LinkedIn profile Contact Details, not your office number.
  • You cannot receive a text on your office number.
  • That means for the portion of the professional world that texts for business, you are left out of the conversation.
  • So don’t be an officephoneasaurus.

Make that change now.

  1. As soon as COVID forced us to work remotely, I changed my business number to my cell number. I also change the greeting on my Voice Mail EVERY DAY. By changing the date, people then know that I am still in business, responsive and still alive!
