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.
