Claim your custom URL

Everyone should claim their custom URL to ensure it includes their name (e.g., http://linkedin.com/in/insivia). This is especially important for people who have a lot of contact with potential clients — especially for those who [are in] professional services and the B2B sector — because when meeting with someone they have not yet met, many people will search Google for the name of the person with whom they’re meeting in order to learn more about them. Claiming your custom URL makes it more likely your LinkedIn profile will rank in the top of those search results.
