How to Begin Marketing Your Company Through LinkedIn

Submit A Comment | View Comments

There are over 3,900 LinkedIn pages associated with builders and the building industry. Are you part of that group?

It's very easy to join LinkedIn, but not quite as simple to fully leverage its marketing power. Embrace these strategies to begin marketing your company through LinkedIn.

Create a company profile that gets noticed. Complete your company's profile, making it easier to find by adding keywords in the summary, specialties, and experience fields.

Talk up your company page. When you take part in discussions via LinkedIn, direct other participants to your company profile.  Post the profile's URL on your website, business cards, blogs, and anywhere else it will be seen.

Link your blog. Use WordPress or BlogLink applications to connect your blog to your personal and company LinkedIn pages. You can even link product demos or how-to presentations to LinkedIn pages via SlideShare. Such steps can help build your brand by delivering additional traffic to your website.

Answer questions on LinkedIn. LinkedIn affords you the chance to respond to questions related to your industry that are posted on the site. In your answers, offer links to articles or blogs on your website, solidifying your expert reputation.    

These steps are just a fraction of the ways LinkedIn can help you market your company and learn successful business tips. We strongly encourage making use of all of these steps.
