Create a Better LinkedIn Company Page and Start Marketing Confidently

“What’s the point of a LinkedIn company Page?”

“It doesn’t really do anything.”

“My marketing agency told us we need to run ad campaigns, but it seems so expensive and complicated.”

“What’s the best campaign to run? How much do I need to spend?”

These are common questions and comments from leaders, marketers, and recruiters. 

I have always said that at some point, LinkedIn is a team sport, which is particularly true regarding how you show up as a company or organization and gain traction through your company Page.

While most people go to LinkedIn to learn about an individual, there are several takeaways from company Pages. In less than a minute, I can glean the following:

  • How many employees are associated with your company from the number of people shown and the headcount number.
  • An understanding of your culture or not.
  • Your content strategy and level of engagement. 
  • If you are hiring and specific jobs.
  • Your services. 
  • The average tenure of your employees. 
  • Life at your company via the Life tab. 
  • A quick link to your website. 

Of course, if your company Page is not complete or up-to-date, I may not be able to gather much information about your company. A lack of attention to your company Page also tells me something about your company. 

There are several ways to optimize your company Page before you consider running marketing campaigns. Walk before you run. 

If you haven’t built a LinkedIn strategy and thought about how your leadership team and employees look, you’re probably getting ahead of your skies.

I recently noticed that one of our clients added a Life tab and did a thorough and thoughtful job building it out. However, the people they chose to showcase on this tab did not have profiles reflecting the corporate standard we helped them establish. As soon as we mentioned it to them, those were the next group of profiles to be completed. 

Walk before you run.
