New to LinkedIn, any tips?

7 replies
Hello Warriors, I am familiar with Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and I have now started trying to learn how LinkedIn works. Does anyone have any tips or insight they have learned that they could share on networking or anything else?

I would even be interested in some sort of automation as long as it doesn't create spam.

Thank you.

    1-To ensure that your profile is 100% complete, LinkedIn recommends including the following information.
    2-I recommend first performing a series of basic searches to find people you know by name. (See the search box at the top of each LinkedIn page.)
    3-LinkedIn groups are spaces in which professionals and experts can share content, ask for advice, post or search for jobs and network with others
    4-many companies choose to represent themselves on LinkedIn, too. Like Facebook brand pages, you may choose to follow the activity and updates of companies on LinkedIn.
    5-Job search and recruitment tools are among LinkedIn's most valuable features
    6-Unlike content shared on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn updates tend to be industry- and professionally-focused
    7-LinkedIn has mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Windows and Palm devices

    Don't go hashtag crazy on LinkedIn, especially if you are looking for a job. This gives off the vibe of being unprofessional. Create content and schedule your posts through Hootsuite - share things that are valuable to people in your field or people you are looking to connect with.

    If you are creating your LinkedIn page for your company for the first time, here are a few questions I had when I created my first page.

    1. Why do I want to create a LinkedIn page?

    Having a presence on at least, widely popular professional social network is crucial for any business in this social media era. 75% of B2B buyers rely more on content to research and make B2B purchasing decisions than they did a year ago. LinkedIn is one the most reliable sources for any professionals to look for information about your company.

    2. Is it free?

    Yes, it is free. You do not have to be a premium member to create a page.

    3. Do I need to have a company email to create a page?

    Yes. In order to avoid solicitation, LinkedIn enforces users to have a company email account that they can verify while creating a page.

    4. Can there be multiple administrators for a page?

    Yes. If you create the page, then you will automatically become an administrator. You can add more LinkedIn users as administrators. They can have the exact same permissions as you have.

    5. Is a profile picture important for a company page?

    Yes. LinkedIn gives heavy weight-age to pages and profiles that have pictures in rendering in search results etc. Having a profile picture not only makes your business look more authentic but it also helps in branding by repeatedly displaying your company logo next to every page activity.

    6. Can I keep my personal profile separated from the company page?

    Yes. Your personal profile activities can be completely separated from the company page activities. For example, you can post an update on your company page as an administrator, and this will not show under your personal activities.

    7. What's a showcase page and why do I need it?

    If you have multiple business units that has different target markets or audience, you can create a showcase page. For example, Cisco has created a separate showcase page for its Security business.
