In this blog post, we introduce 4 ways sure to help you reap the benefits of a well-managed LinkedIn company page.
1. Show your best side: Create a LinkedIn company page that will attract your target demographic. Use your page to highlight your products, services and achievements in a way that will keep followers interested. This can include content you have created such as white papers or positive product reviews, how-to links or just general website content. Either way, keep it current and interesting. Don’t forget to create the company page with your industry in mind. Write with specific keywords and keep your description accurate.
2: Remember to stay active and engage: Social media is all about engaging new fans and followers, and while LinkedIn may be a more professional social networking platform, the principal remains the same. Creating quality content is important, but keeping your fans engaged is what will keep them coming back. Be sure to respond to comments, start discussions and reciprocate activity. This will aid in creating a high quality professional and reliable persona.
3: Find new fans and followers: Social media success is measurable by the number of individuals currently visiting your page on a regular basis and sharing it with their fans and followers. To entice new fans, consider reaching out to colleagues and coworkers; they will automatically have a vested interest in the company since it is part of their livelihood. Add LinkedIn icons to all of your sites, emails and e-newsletters for convenience and to make it especially easy for potential fans to begin following your page. Make it short, sweet and simple!
