With over 360 million active users worldwide, LinkedIn is the most popular professional business social media site and this makes it one of the most powerful business growth tools you’ll find. You can use LinkedIn to network, find people with particular skills in specific industries, reach your target audience and interact with them, and establish a strong online presence for your business. Our independent LinkedIn consultancy aims to help people with leveraging LinkedIn professionally to get the most out of its features, so that they can achieve sustainable business growth.

So you have failed at the first hurdle so now what do you do?

So, having a LinkedIn marketing strategy is highly recommended. To help you build this strategy we offer academically accredited LinkedIn training courses, which will teach you everything you need to know when it comes to leveraging LinkedIn’s features for business growth. Our courses contain up to 6 modules, and completing just 4 of them means you’re qualified to receive your world recognised diploma and apply your newfound knowledge to your LinkedIn marketing plan. You and your employees will be taught how to get your business more sales, leads, referrals, opportunities, and visibility. You’ll be able to identify fresh revenue streams, increase your business’ brand awareness and build up communication between your business and your target audience.

You can also hire a LinkedIn expert such as Dr Mark D Yates who knows the best ways to leverage LinkedIn for business growth. Your LinkedIn expert will help you build and maintain your profile for a period of 12 months, making sure that your profile rankings rise significantly by the end of the year. They’ll do this by ensuring that the different sections of your profile are all Search Engine Optimised (SEO). You will be found on all relevant searches and gain more exposure and connections because of this. They’ll also post out regular updates to the activity feed to maintain your connections’ interest.

So now that you’ve got your strategy, and you’ve implemented all of the recommended changes and actions on your LinkedIn. Keep in mind that business networking on LinkedIn can be highly competitive, and you can’t always expect instant results. LinkedIn speaker Dr Mark D Yates will tell you that sometimes marketing on LinkedIn can require patience but, that this patience will be rewarded with a significant increase in online business exposure and networking opportunities. Creating a business page and gathering followers there, joining as many groups as possible so you can discuss and network in them, and interacting with your connections whenever possible is what’s going to get you results.

Sometimes, little successes on LinkedIn will build up over time, but you will eventually have the online network you’ve set out to obtain. Connection growth may be slow but steady, and as long as it remains steady, you’re doing well. Keep up with interacting with people in your groups and by posting out updates, as well as messaging people and answering any questions people ask you. You will develop relationships between your business and both the target audience plus potential business networking partners.
