It is frightening to see the number of LinkedIn Company Pages that have a good number of subscribers but absolutely don’t have any updates. These people clicked on the ‘Follow’ button but then they haven’t heard from the company ever since.
In my last post I was analyzing the difference between LinkedIn Personal Profiles and Company Pages (read my post HERE) and my conclusion was that even though the personal profile has many more options and is in my humble opinion much more important in today’s market, I still recommend that every business owner (and definitely larger businesses) create a company page on LinkedIn.
But just like a website is no good without traffic, a static LinkedIn Company Page is useless as well. You need to stay in touch with your followers and you do that by sharing valuable content with them.
Always include a media content such as images, infographics, videos, SlideShare presentations etc. in order to draw attention and to make your public interested in your publications. In addition, write a convincing introduction and choose a good title for each publication.
