Would you like to reach a professional audience of over 850m? With an increasing growing membership, LinkedIn is the number one B2B social media platform. 40% of B2B marketers surveyed indicated LinkedIn as the most effective channel for driving high-quality leads.
How can you use LinkedIn to market your business?
One very valuable resource is available to you right now. Your People!
If you can encourage, empower and entice (three E’s right there) your employees to amplify your business message on LinkedIn, you have a greater opportunity to reach more of the right people.
So how can your team help you to win business on LinkedIn?
Lets start with what not to do:
- Ask your team to send sales messages to all their contacts
- Ask your team to post on LinkedIn without any direction
- Forget about your team altogether (yes… it happens)
So how can we empower, encourage and entice our employees?
Empower Your Employees to use LinkedIn
This is simple. Provide your team with the training to understand how and why they should be using LinkedIn.
We work with many clients who have teams. The best results happen when the CEO invests in training for their team members. We create the content for the business Company Page, and then work with their teams. We work on optimising their profiles, and showing them how to share the company message.
By empowering your employees to use LinkedIn, they will start to build their own professional networks – connect with people they are interested in having conversations with, and this should lead to more opportunities for both the employee and the company.
Encourage your team to use LinkedIn
When we run our training sessions, the attendees realise the impact that their involvment can have on the reach of the Company on LinkedIn.
According to LinkedIn, when an admin posts on their Page, 30% of the engagement comes from their employees, who are 14X more likely to share that content vs. other content types.LinkedIn Business Solutions
We believe that by sharing valuable interesting content on your Company Page, and training your team on how to use that as content for their own profiles, you are helping your employees – they don’t have to work out what to write about – it’s all there.
Entice your employees to use LinkedIn
How do you feel about a little healthy competition?
With LinkedIn company pages, you can see which members of your team are engaging and sharing the content. Why not set up a 30 day challenge to see who can engage the most? Reward the employees who are on board with marketing the business message.
Your employees can now also invite their connections to follow the company page
