Hey Reader,

I've been inconsistent on LinkedIn, but I want to use it to attract more clients.

So when a writer with 1 billion views audited my profile, I was all ears.

Here's a quick backstory.

You know who it is

Last year, I started working with Tim Denning - one of the internet's best personal development writers.

He has 518,000+ followers on LinkedIn and over 325,000 on Medium.

Things are going great. After six months of working together, I asked Tim if he would write me a testimonial.

He kindly agreed:

He then did something that blew me away.

He audited my LinkedIn profile and sent me a video. I didn't ask for it. And it was incredibly helpful.

Here's your LinkedIn action plan based on Tim's audit

You can apply these improvements to your own profile.

  1. Optimise your profile — Think about your banner, headline, and profile picture. What do you want to be known for? What’s your identity?
  2. Only have one link in your “Featured” section — This should be a link to your landing page. You can collect people’s email addresses in exchange for your lead magnet.
  3. Post once a day, six days a week (except Sundays), about the thing you want to be known for“Writing on LinkedIn is the most powerful thing you can do.” — Tim Denning

I’m taking Tim’s advice on board.

I’m writing a week’s worth of content in one day and scheduling it on LinkedIn so that it publishes automatically.

I’m posting once a day, six days a week, and my aim is to publish educational content about freelance writing. It’ll primarily be text-based, and I’ll experiment with picture quotes.

I’ve also learned from Niharikaa Kaur Sodhi (190K+ LinkedIn followers) that you should:

  1. Tell personal stories — These are unique to you and can’t be copied
  2. Hook people in with your first two lines — You can think of this as the headline and subtitle for your post

It’s early days, but my posts are getting more impressions:

Keep an eye out on my Medium page.

An article will be coming soon.

Thanks so much for being here, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

Read time: 4 minutes Hey Reader, Do you know what time it is? It's SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TIME! 🥳️ Let me tease you with a little background first... I recently emailed writers about their goals. I wanted to figure out how I could help them. (And - by proxy - how I could help YOU ✌️) Questions included: Do you want to replace your full-time income in the next 6 months through writing? Have you ever considered full-time writing before? If so, what stopped you? I'll quickly summarise the...

Read time: 2 minutes Hey Reader, You might remember the story about my assistant Lou. A lady called Lisa reached out to see if she could work with her. Well, this is only half the story. Lisa also asked if I could take her on as a new client: The problem? I wasn't taking on new clients. My hands were too full. But rather than fritter the lead away (like I usually do), I thought back to my conversation with Sara. Sara took part in one of my 30-Day Writing Challenges and made it clear she's...

Read time: 3 minutes Hey Reader, If there's one thing I've learned over the last 6 years, it's this: Friendships matter. 90% of opportunities come to me through people I already know. But here's something you might not have considered: How do you meaningfully add fuel to your friendships so they continue to burn brightly? It's easier than you think. Let me show you. You might have met Lou before Lou worked as my virtual assistant (VA) from April 2020 to Jan 2022. She easily saved me 10+ hours...
