LinkedIn Management

Content posted to the company page has the goal of catching the eye of prospective clients, establishing your business as a thought leader, and building and maintaining relationships.

We recommend that you begin by posting to the LinkedIn company page 3 times per week. As your team gets more comfortable, we recommend posting 5-7 times each week. The chart below outlines what a sample content schedule would look like for 3, 5 or 7 posts each week.

Individual employees need to engage with the company page to help spread awareness of the brand. This is especially important for sales team members. When team members share content from the business page, it is exposed to their connections, helping each of them establish thought leadership and build trust in the brand and in the individuals as thought leaders. This type of brand exposure can also be accomplished through the use of a robust profile.

Below are the actions individuals should take on their LinkedIn profile at least once a week:

  • Like, comment, and share content on the business LinkedIn page.
  • Monitor connection requests and keep growing their network.
  • Check notifications and send notes to connections who have had job changes, birthdays, or other news.

LinkedIn Sales Navigator

Sales Navigator is a compilation of highly effective sales tools within the LinkedIn platform. It is a paid service that helps sales professionals find relevant leads, organize and monitor leads and expand their knowledge of sales tactics. LinkedIn has over 500 million users. Sales Navigator makes that number more manageable by narrowing the scope using advanced targeting and prospect data.

  • InMail: InMail is LinkedIn’s internal email system. It allows professionals to reach out to individuals that are not within their immediate network. All levels of Sales Navigator allow you to send InMail messages to prospects.
  • TeamLink: This section of Sales Navigator shows you how you and your team members are connected to other members in your network. This allows you to get introductions to other LinkedIn users through your teammates.

Beyond the features listed above, these are tips to help your team get the most out of Sales Navigator:

  • To avoid using up your InMail quota for a given month, look for “Open Profiles.” Messaging these profiles does not use your allotted messages.
  • Add the Sales Navigator for Gmail Chrome extension to show rich LinkedIn profile data for your contacts. The extension provides ice breakers including shared connections, experiences and interests. This data helps you build a rapport with potential clients.
