Enhance your page
Creating a standout LinkedIn page is important as almost everyone will judge the way the branding looks before following your business.

There are many ways to build an engaged following and get a good reach on your page.
Posting good and informative content is a must. You should treat your page as a place where followers can view good quality content that will both educate and inform them. The majority of the content you post should be your own, but you can also use 3rd party content if it supports your brand and you share your own view and outlook on it.
Being active and posting regularly is essential. Ensure you post a couple of times a week to drive engagement. The more users who engage with your content, the greater exposure they’ll get since they’ll appear in more member feeds. Posting frequently will increase your reach but it does require time. If you struggle to think of content ideas then plan out themes to work to and test what performs best.
Community hashtags are a great thing to use on your page. This means the posts on your feed will be using those hashtags and will be relevant to your brand. Engaging with your feed will help you gain exposure for your brand and gain followers.
You should also be using hashtags in your own posts. We recommend using up to 5 is a good idea and after you have written your content some suggested hashtags come up. Your content will be seen by more accounts within your target audience; this will allow you to expand the reach of your post and grow your following.
Using the build-in LinkedIn page analytics is important as it will show you which content is working and what isn’t doing so well. You need to know what type of content drives good engagement and builds your audience. Giving your followers what they want to see will attract more followers.
There are several strategies to boost the number of people who follow your LinkedIn brand page. A successful social media strategy is built on the pillars of an up-to-date page, quality content, and regular updating.
