When it comes to B2B networking there’s no better social media channel than LinkedIn. As you may know they recently hit 200 million users, which underlines their market dominance. Avoiding LinkedIn is just not an option anymore.

Recently the company pages layout and content were updated.

The new features allow you to:

• Showcase Products/Services in a more effective way
• Promote your industry knowledge
• Target your ideal audience
• Get recommendations from your clients

So it’s time to make the most of it.

We have been working on our own LinkedIn company page to optimise our presence and the results were spectacular. ORM’s referral traffic from LinkedIn has skyrocketed in the last couple of weeks.

We thought we could share some recommendations with you.

  2. 2. LinkedIn / The new company page LinkedIn recently rolled out a new version of their company pages.

  3. 3. Homepage / Overview… Make the most of the improved layout. What’s new: Banner: The new banner has been made more prominent, similar to the Facebook cover image. Recent Updates Section: A good way to share industry related links or promote your blog by integrating your RSS feed. Company Info Section: Now pushed to the bottom of the page. We suggest the inclusion of a short but catchy statement Groups : Three groups can be spotlighted on the homepage (you need to be a member or an admin to add them). Another way to gain more visibility.© 2013 ORM / ormlondon.com 3
  4. 4. Homepage / …and tips Banner Format: PNG, JPEG, or GIF Weight: Max size 2 MB The new banner is bigger, more prominent and more visible. Size: 646 x 220 pixels or larger It’s a great opportunity to personalise the page with your company’s look and feel. Our tips: Include a brief and catchy description of your services and try to stick to your main website design feel. Avoid using your company logo as this is featured above.© 2013 ORM / ormlondon.com 4
  5. 5. Products and Services / Overview This area was re-designed and now presents a cleaner layout with new features. What’s new? Carousel: A new carousel including 3 banners is now implemented. Recommendations: Individual products and services can now be recommended. Your company should reach to your clients to get endorsement. Audience targeting: Different versions of the same page can be created to target different clients Videos: It’s now possible to include a link to a Youtube video in the right hand column© 2013 ORM / ormlondon.com 5
