LBM Weekly

Business growth is what we at LBM are good at. We know how to grow your business by successfully utilising the different features of LinkedIn and we wanted to pass some of our unique knowledge onto you via our weekly posts. Carry on reading to discover some useful information about LinkedIn and learn how to get the best experience from the best business social media platform.

We Recommend

If you have any other professional webpages, blogs or social media sites outside LinkedIn that you want others to see, link them to your profile. LinkedIn can be a great way of bringing in traffic to all of your other outlets.

Try To Avoid

Remember to read over your LinkedIn account after you have finished creating it. You need to make sure that you haven’t missed any silly spelling or grammatical errors that could affect how you are seen by others.

LinkedIn News

LinkedIn has launched a new feature that allows mentors to find potential people who need mentoring. Being compared to social apps such as Tinder, the new feature will let users look through profiles and choose to ‘accept’ or ‘pass’ on either mentors or people who need mentoring. If two people accept each other, they will have the option to speak to each other and arrange meetings.


You Asked Us

“I want my updates to get as many views as possible, how can I do this?”

There are a lot of ways to increase the total views that you can get on your LinkedIn updates. The easiest trick is to add an image. Having images on your content will make it more eye catching to whoever is scrolling the feed. The timing of your post can also have a direct effect on how many views you can get. Our research has found that updates being posted out nearer the end of the working day, usually between 4pm – 6pm, will get more views.
