In a world of full social networks, one social network stands out for businesses! LinkedIn is a great platform for establishing your place within an industry and building strong corporate relationships. Below are five great ways to use the biggest social business platform to help take your company to the next level!


  1. Assess Your Competitors

As a Toronto Social Media Marketing Company, we know just how important data is for increasing your market share. We use it everyday to figure out which headlines will better connect with your target audience. LinkedIn does the same, it allows you to collect large information on your competitors. You can learn about whether your rival companies are shrinking since LinkedIn will show you a percentage of their company growth. Feel free to dig deep into their hiring practices and look into the job titles at those companies to see which direction they are taking. This can provide lots of insight on whether they will be beefing up their advertising or focusing on product development.


    1. Build Your Network

LinkedIn is all about creating and sustaining good business relationships. You should join the various groups and associations on the business platform to find old colleagues or look for new connections. Maybe you know someone who knows someone who can help build your company!


    1. Get Educated

Almost every company is trying to make themselves reputable on the social network by creating and sharing content. These companies and experts are putting themselves out there and there is no reason why you shouldn’t contact them. Ask a marketing manager for a few marketing tips. Contact a software engineer and ask about the industry. Not only do you learn, you also build stronger relationships on the platform.


    1. Promote, Promote

Qode Social knows all about Google, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat ads. As experts we know that LinkedIn is the perfect place for niche targeting, especially if you are in the business-to-business market. Go straight to the higher ups by targeting certain job titles like ‘CEO’ or ‘Head of Marketing’. You can also use the traditional demographic segments like age, geography, and lifestyle interests to promote to potential consumers and clients.


    1. Calling All Great Employees

If you are looking for someone with experience, you can surely find it on LinkedIn. The greatest feature about LinkedIn is being able to pinpoint someone with the exact skill set you are looking for.
