The response to last week’s email, my first LinkedIn Infographic: “Portrait of a LinkedIn User,” was unbelievable. Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement. It is making its way around the Internet world. Feel free to share it with anyone and everyone.
Speaking of encouraging, I am doing just that as it relates to making sure you and your friends, relatives and coworkers consider attending my super popular live LinkedIn beginner class on March 21 from 5:00-7:30pm at my office in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. If you are still struggling with your strategy on LinkedIn, now is the time to fix that. Click here for a short video preview and registration information.
This week I am going to address another one of those frequently asked questions. I’m sure many of you will want to keep these numbers right next to your computer.
The question is: “How many characters can I use in my Summary Section? Specialties Section? Headline?”
So, in typical Wayne fashion, I am not going to stop simply with the raw numbers but give you a comment on why these limits are important and why you should consider taking them to the limit (anyone humming the old Eagles song?)…for your benefit, of course.

I hope you are encouraged to take full advantage of these LinkedIn limits.
