Why LinkedIn Company Pages Are A Good (Free) Investment

Last Updated April 27, 2021

When it comes to making your business visible across different social media platforms, making a profile on LinkedIn may not even cross your mind. What’s the point? Are people even going to interact with your brand on there? You might think LinkedIn is boring and only good for uploading your resume. 

Except it’s not.

LinkedIn is fast becoming the most trusted social platform online. On top of this, more than half of the digital users follow and trust an account’s social activity over ads alone. That lets us know that brands that build a social media presence are more trusted by consumers—and a business using LinkedIn has the added advantage of building a presence on a trusted platform

You get the point. LinkedIn should definitely make the roster for your digital marketing strategy. 

A LinkedIn Company Page Deserves the Same Attention as LinkedIn Ads

If you're already using LinkedIn ads via LinkedIn Marketing Solutions, you should round out your strategy with a LinkedIn company page. For one thing, it’s totally free.

If that’s not enough reason, here are some advantages of creating a LinkedIn page:

  • With a company page, your business can share multiple aspects of your brand through LinkedIn Showcase pages. 
  • You can post job opportunities in your organization. This is where potential candidates can see what it’s like working for your company and another way to connect with LinkedIn audiences.
  • As a B2B marketer, you get to connect to thousands of business owners, managers, and decision-makers and engage with them organically by sharing content and updates.
  • There are tons of resources to use your LinkedIn page to engage with your target audience, such as community hashtags, blog posts, and an “invite to follow” feature.
