LinkedIn is the default platform of the business professionals around the world. It is regularly used to source information, for due diligence and to prove expertise levels in advance of engaging potential suppliers. For example research has already identified in the IT space that 64% of a decision is made by online and word of mouth before they even speak to a supplier! We often donít realise that our LinkedIn personal and company profiles could be closing the door to opportunities before we even know about them and all because we never thought about it ... until now.
The advanced functionality on company profiles is impressive. You can actually configure certain aspects of your company profile to suit the viewer. For example, how to segment and personalise the appearance of your company updates so they more closely match the needs of individual viewers.
LinkedIn can also tell you a lot about the companies youíd like to work with, who the companyís competitors are and so much more. All this useful data can make a huge difference when approaching potential clients or completing tenders to win their business.
Course ProfileJames Potter's course is designed specifically for consultants and firms. It will teach you:
- How to make the most of your online LinkedIn company presence
- How to best display your brand, your voice and key themes
- How best to engage an audience of over 330 million business people, sharing with them your news and updates.
- The ways to leverage the paid options around sponsorship and advertising
In order to create your own LinkedIn organisational profile you need to have a company email address and a role at the company listed on your profile. If youíre unsure about either of these please get in touch with us.
Testimonials"A very pragmatic, interactive and useful workshop and worthy investment of time. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking to use LinkedIn to build their B2B network."
"James makes learning about LinkedIn and how it can work for you fun, entertaining and most importantly useful and as I am a technophobe that is no mean feat. In James' hands LinkedIn becomes much more than a marketing tool for your company. The workshop made me think about what company face I wanted to present to which market; made me think about how I worked; what I did; and most importantly how to communicate the essence of what I do best. I would thoroughly recommend it."
"A single session with James was all it took to be convinced that he really understands the importance of firm profiling as well as the value to us of using LinkedIn properly. Thereís much more to it than we realised and James made sure he understood us first Ė exactly as we like to do with our own clients. Invaluable insights and a few neat tricks too!"
