Shark Tank judge and Red Balloon founder Naomi Simson says posting consistently, writing the way you speak and offering original ideas are the best ways to build a major following on social media and garner influence as a thought leader.
Shark Tank's red judge - who has built up more than 2 million followers and become the 7th most followed woman globally on LinkedIn - joins fellow Shark Tank judge Boost Juice founder Janine Allis, Atlassian co-founder Scott Farquahar, Westpac CEO Brian Hartzer and Telstra CEO Andy Penn among LinkedIn's most viewed CEOs and founders in 2017.
Notable entries in other categories on this year's LinkedIn Power Profiles, being released on Tuesday and provided to The Australian Financial Review, are Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and NBN CEO Bill Morrow.
Showcase of personal brand
Boost Juice founder Ms Allis said that CEOs, politicians, policy makers and executives are increasingly recognising the importance of their own personal brand as CEOs become the face of their business and on-demand, freelance professionals battle it out for individual jobs based on their digital identity and online reputation.
"Your own personal profile is really important in business and if you become an expert in an area, people will go for your advice, so become that expert. Post regularly, make sure that what you write is relevant and then find a way to get as much reach as possible because what will happen is you will create your own personal brand," Ms Allis said.
NAB recently announced they had ditched the CV for thousands of jobs and experts suggest LinkedIn and other platforms are now a far more common way to outline your credentials for executive positions.
