With over 80% of Social Media-generated B2B leads coming from LinkedIn, and as an extremely easy way to reach your audience, learning how to effectively leverage this platform could be vital to scaling your company and retaining current clients. Even if you’re not directly responsible for sales, a strong LinkedIn presence will reinforce why prospects would want to work with your company, while also allowing you to stay on top of the latest industry trends.
During this workshop, you’ll discover how to effectively utilize LinkedIn without trying to keep up with a complex algorithm or feeling like you’re wasting your time. Discover the four-step process to making your profile more discoverable —and appealing —to your target audience. You’ll also learn how to create compelling content, allowing you to make a more genuine connection with your ideal prospects and land media appearances to further increase your reach.
