The Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) is an invite-only organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs. In partnership with Citi, YEC recently launched StartupCollective, a f ree virtual mentorship program that helps millions of entrepreneurs start and grow businesses. Here are tips f rom members of YEC on how to make a strong company LinkedIn page: 1. Showcase Your Personality LinkedIn f ollowers are very dif f erent f rom those on other social networks in that you know why they’re there — they’re considering working f or you one day. That means you can showcase the best things about your company, especially the personality of your culture and team. Don’t shy away f rom being clear — they need to love it as much as you do! - Derek Flanzraich, Greatist 2. Edit Your Company Description LinkedIn brand pages are very SEO f riendly. Google previews up to 156 characters of your page’s text in its meta description. Edit your company page description so it leads with powerf ul, keyword- rich sentences. LinkedIn users can also search f or companies by keyword, so include words that describe your business, expertise and industry f ocus. - Brett Farmiloe, Digital Marketing Company
  • 2. 3. Add Keywords Add the keywords you want your company to rank f or to your LinkedIn company page. This will help people f ind your prof ile and will also help your company rank better with search engines. Also, connect your employees’ prof iles to your LinkedIn page so there’s more activity and connections leading their contacts to the page. - Joe Apf elbaum, Ajax Union 4. Highlight How Cool Your Company Culture Is Highlight how much employees love working at your company and how much you love the work they do f or you. Show the outside world that your company’s values extend beyond providing a terrif ic product and include having a terrif ic in-house culture, as well. - Brooke Bergman, Allied Business Network Inc. 5. Use Video You need to stand out among the crowd. Not many companies are doing video or visual content. Showcase this on there, and it’ll attract a lot of people. - John Rampton, Adogy 6. Have Others Share Your Story I really think having others tell our story f or us is much more valuable than us telling our story. Having employees, interns, clients and partner organizations share their experiences working with us provides a unique f rame of ref erence that we can’t achieve. - Chris Cancialosi, GothamCulture 7. Feature Employees Showcase your company culture by using status updates to f eature employees who went above and beyond and awards the company has received. Af ter, review engagement metrics, and sponsor your best posts. - Adam Root, Hiplogiq 8. Support It With Content LinkedIn thrives on quality content. When people aren’t reading personal prof iles, they’re of ten reading the best articles that are being shared on the site. Having a strong company network that engages with your quality content is going to drive people to your brand page (which will be quality, as well). - Michael Seiman, CPXi 9. Keep It Appropriately Updated So many businesses are bad at keeping the page updated with new announcements or content, and any new visitor is going to think it’s dead and not happening and then move on. Keep the page active, even if you don’t see a ton of immediate ROI. We’re not talking a huge time investment here. However, don’t get overzealous without a good plan and just post anything just to be posting it. - Andy Karuza, Brandbuddee 10. Post Relevant Information Often Whether you want to grow your client base or add new employees, LinkedIn is a great place to showcase your company’s talents and unique of f erings. Make the most of the tabs LinkedIn of f ers by listing recent updates on your company’s homepage and current job openings along with videos of employees discussing what it’s like to work at your company on the careers page. - Björn Stansvik, MentorMate
