  • People vs content
  • Think about who is valuable to you in a professional contextThe larger your network, the greater your reach and visibilityDON’T sacrifice quality for quantity (only connect with people you actually know)
  • It’s clear that members don’t just Follow as a popularity vote. Remember the consumer electronics client we mentioned before? When we surveyed their Followers, we found that:They were engaged, having opted into an ongoing dialogue with that company. In fact, LinkedIn members who Follow companies are also 2X more likely to join LinkedIn Groups, indicating their dedication to learning and engaging on our site.They were more likely to consider purchasing. In fact, they reported being 3X more likely to consider purchasing, as compared to non-Followers. By building relationships with members at varying points in the purchase funnel, you can help to drive consideration, preference, and advocacy. They were 2X more likely to recommend than non-Followers. This means that your messages will be shared and amplified across their networks of like-minded professionals, driving brand awareness.They’re likely long-term Followers. More than 50% of Followers reported that they would follow companies indefinitely, creating an opportunity for lasting relationships with your target audience.(LinkedIn Follower Analysis, May 2012; LinkedIn internal data)
  • People follow companies on different social platforms for different reasons. There is a context to these social platforms that you need to be aware of. Missing the signal on context means your business content can be lost among your audiences, or worse…ignored. On Facebook and Twitter, people follow companies for deals and discounts. This is the context of the site and what people expect to get.Alternatively, on LinkedIn, people follow companies for news, actionable insights, and information. This is the context of the site and what people expect to get.Key Takeaway: People expect different things from the companies they follow on the different social platforms. Facebook – 46% looking for incentives or rewards for engaging with the brandTwitter – 66% to get discounts, 48% to participate in contestsLinkedIn – 68% for news, insights, informationhttp://totalaccess.emarketer.com/Chart.aspx?R=112793&dsNav=Ntk:basic%7ctwitter%7c1%7c-basic%7cfollow%7c1%7c,Ro:15,N:1045-500&kwredirect=n%2cn%2cn1+2eMarketer (Lab42 study, August 2011)3 LinkedIn Follower Analysis, January 2012
