LinkedIn Home Inventory Industry Group

NICA LogoDid you know that NICA has a LinkedIn Group? Titled Home Inventory Industry Group, you can readily recognize it, as the avatar is the NICA logo. This can be a great platform to ask questions, get advice about marketing, discuss pricing structures and strategies, etc.

The Group has been dormant for quite a while, but since we’ve had a few inquiries recently, we’ve decided to revive it. Over the next couple of months, we will monitor how many new people join and also if members contribute by engaging in conversations. If we see interest and activity, we will continue to maintain this LinkedIn group for your benefit.

NICA members, in addition to non-NICA-member home inventory professionals, are welcome to join the group. Also, feel free to invite ancillary industry professionals who you know, such as estate attorneys, insurance agents, appraisers, restoration companies, financial planners, etc. They can be great resources for your questions. Additionally, this is an easy way to network with these professionals in your market area.

Click on this link to join the group. We hope to see you there!

Marketing Minute: You Set Up A LinkedIn Account. Now What?

Mary GillenCreating a LinkedIn profile is a great beginning. However, once you’ve completed it, what’s next? How do people find you? How do you find people you want to meet?

The text under your name on your LinkedIn profile is called your professional headline. To ensure that people can find you, be sure to include keywords and phrases in this headline that they will use to discover you. Also, be an approachable professional. Write your summary in the first person.

LinkedIn’s search engine indexes the phrases in your Profile’s Interests Section. Be sure to add the known phrases that prospects or professionals would use to search for your services on LinkedIn.

In addition to your personal profile, create a LinkedIn Company Page. This is a great way to promote your business, detail and itemize your services, and provide contact information.

This Marketing Minute is provided by Mary Gillen who has 24 years of Web development experience to build responsive, accessible websites for tech companies, associations, non-profits, and small businesses, blending professional design with measurable business results. I am also an experienced Website Accessibility Compliance Auditor, providing website testing & remediation for compliance with ADA, Section 508 and WCAG 2.1 A, AA & AAA Guidelines. https://accessiblewebsiteservices.com/

New Logo for Asset Inventory Industry LinkedIn Group

NICAThe LinkedIn Group, Asset Inventory Industry, was created for members to share information and participate in relevant conversations. Since the National Inventory Certification Association (NICA) has assumed management of this group, we thought it would be appropriate and less confusing to use the NICA logo as the group logo as well.

The Asset Inventory Industry Group is open to all inventory professionals, those who are in complimenting industries (insurance, restoration, home organizing, photo organizing, estate planning, etc.), and anyone who has an interest in learning about this industry. If you aren’t a member, please join us here,

  • Ask a question

Who do you know in our industry or other ancillary industries? Please invite them to join. Having a variety of professionals in the group will enhance our shared knowledge and variety of topics.
