It does also increase the chances of people getting in touch with you, sending a message on LinkedIn is very quick and easy.
2. Customise how you showcase your products and services
Your LinkedIn business page allows you to showcase your product and services easily and succinctly, but it also allows you the ability to customise the content you are sharing. There are tools available that give you the ability to target your audience and meet them where they are and shaping the message to suit them.
LinkedIn has a tool that the other social media platforms do not have, you can create Showcase pages, further allowing you to target specific audiences for specific branches/areas of your business.
3. Increase credibility
Establishing credibility is a goal all businesses share. Every business, regardless of the product or services they offer wants to develop a relationship with clients and be influential within their industry – a LinkedIn business page can help with this. In fact, if used right LinkedIn can help you position yourself as an industry leader.
What sets LinkedIn apart from the other platforms? Quite simply it is the sharing power it has. You have the ability to make connections, not only with peers but with industry leaders. Groups offer powerful opportunities to connect with new audiences and establish credibility.
