Linkedin Templates That Top Social Sellers Use to Grow



Linkedin Templates That Top Social Sellers Use to Grow

Our intention with this article is to share a variety of LinkedIn templates useful for your company’s sales strategy on Linkedin.


Since Linkedin is a powerful tool for lead generation, your personal profile needs to be top-notch, and so does your content strategy through Linkedin by using all options available, such as InMail and invitation to connect.


So, the first step for a successful Linkedin strategy is to review a list of best LinkedIn templates and apply some ideas on yours.


If you are a manager, you can also share LinkedIn best practices and make sure everyone is on the same page about how the templates can work well and help increase responses from leads.


Keep in mind that the templates are just suggestions that you can adapt to your needs. You can also run A/B Tests to find out which templates work best.


Here’s a list of templates we’re going to cover in this article:


  • Linkedin summary

  • Emails 

  • Inmails

  • Connection Invitation

  • Company profile

Linkedin profile template: how to create a great summary

Creating a high-quality summary can be challenging to some people as it’s necessary to make a self-assessment. It can be even more difficult for salespeople, as the final goal is to appeal to buyers and to build a business relationship. 


In order to create a B2B connection, you need to create a profile that shows trustworthiness.


That’s why some people outsource to professional writers, but there are a few things that can be done in order to create a fantastic Linkedin summary:


  1. Show passion for what you do

  2. It’s ok to show personality and mention personal likes

  3. Add your contact information

  4. Make a list of your main achievements

  5. Explain what you can help with and what problems you can solve

  6. Showcase achievements

  7. Use a good LinkedIn background


Note that there’s not an ideal summary length as it depends on what you want to share, but there is a 2000 character limit. It is advised to add at least three to five sentences. One way you can get inspiration is by imagining that it’s an elevator pitch.


Check out five LinkedIn profile templates from salespeople below, managers, and marketing professionals to inspire you to create your own:


  • Koka Sexton is a marketing leader, and he uses the summary for advertising his expertise, specialties, and what he has done for the companies he worked with. When you read his summary you can see that he is a successful and skilled sales leader.


  • Max Altschuler successfully added personal detail by explaining a life goal. He also described how he helps companies, and showcased links to his websites and other social media platforms. Contact information is very important, and he found a way to incorporate it into his summary.


  • Tiffani Bova first mentions what she is currently doing and states that she is available to discuss. Then she showcases accomplishments such as the book she wrote, awards she got, and nominations she received. She also chose to add more than three videos, which allows her profile visitors to see what she does in another medium. 


It’s a long summary, but worth reading all the way through because of the amount of interesting information.


  • Create a list of your affiliations like Trish Bertuzzi. She also mixed long and short paragraphs, which increases readability. Additionally, adding dates and numbers is a good option when you want to list specific accomplishments and give a timeline.


  • Make it short, direct, and intriguing as Samuel Boyd did. His summary doesn’t say much, but it’s enough to make us trust that he knows what he is doing. This an example of a very confident summary that resonates with potential leads.


We have also compiled a list of tips to improve your summary template quality:


  • Don’t overuse special characters

  • Use a Call to Action to end the summary 

  • Make the paragraphs short

  • Use bullet points

  • Add a catchy opening statement

  • Add keywords related to your industry niche

  • Talk about yourself in the first person

  • Upload media such as videos


Finally, see the table below for templates that you can copy and paste to your account. Feel free to make changes and improve according to your personal experience:
