3 Reasons Why You Need to Change Your LinkedIn URL

Have you ever noticed on LinkedIn that some people have very different URLs than others? Do you even know what a URL is?

Okay, we are kidding on that second part—well, sort of. Not everyone knows what a URL is, and even more people did not know that you can customize your URL on social media sites like LinkedIn.

Thankfully, our friends at Virtus Athletes recently put together a great article breaking down why you should change your LinkedIn URL and how to do it. So whether you did not know you could change it, did not care to change it or were too embarrassed to ask for help, now you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

You can read the article in its entirety here, but there are three main reasons why you should consider creating a custom URL from the article according to the author Brian Haukoos.

• LinkedIn is a Google Goldmine
• It Represents Your Brand
• It is Easy to Use and Remember

Haukoos goes in-depth on each of these points in the article link above, but his reasons make sense. In a world that Google rules and where self-branding and giving people something that is easy to remember is king, having a custom URL on LinkedIn is very important.

After reading his article on why you should create a custom URL, we encourage you to log-in to your own LinkedIn account and hit play on the video below to make the change now. You never know when having a custom URL will come in handy.
