Tip 1: Write a captivating “About us” section, using relevant keywords
A captivating, well-optimized “About us” section on your company page is a must. This being said, you should include a tightly worded paragraph (2,000 characters or less), telling visitors everything they absolutely need to know about your company. Try your best to use simple, human language. We highly advise you to conduct keyword research of relevant terms to include in your “About us” section.This will make your profile SEO friendly which should be your main goal. Last, but not least, you need to aim to outline your business goals in words anyone will understand.
The “About us” on your LinkedIn Company Page (this also applies to other social media profiles, as well as your website) should answer a few basic questions:
- Who are you?
- Where are you based?
- What are your values?
- What do you offer?
- How can people contact you to learn more?
Tip 2: Keep track of your competitors
Keeping up with your competitors is highly advisable. Never copy them, but just be aware of what they do. Another useful tactic you can take is to check out LinkedIn’s annual list of the 10 best Company Pages. You could learn a lot from them. Visit their profiles and examine how they’ve optimized their pages to be able to get more inspiration for yours.
Tip 3: Be consistent
Being present on LinkedIn is a great way to showcase your company and introduce many potential clients to it. This is the main reason why you should be consistent with your posts and activities, keep your brand voice up to par and be active with any client communication you have.
