You are probably aware of LinkedIn and you might use it personally and for your company. But did you know it is the world’s largest professional social network? LinkedIn is unlike Facebook and Twitter, more focussed on connecting businesses and professionals.
Professionals use LinkedIn for job opportunities and follow community groups and companies that post useful content. It is a great way of keeping up to date with industry news and it allows companies to quickly find the right person for the job.
Why is LinkedIn important for your business?
LinkedIn is a great place to make connections and participate in discussions. Sharing content will give you exposure, helping you to become a thought leader which could lead to potential (new) customers.
