7 Steps to Grow Your LinkedIn Company Page Followers
You’ve created a LinkedIn Company Page and have 6 followers. What next?
Here are my 7 simple steps to help you grow your followers. Remember, growing your followers takes time and will build faster if you implement these steps and regularly, consistently post content that’s relevant and adds value to your community.
1. Develop a One Line Promise to Your Followers
Inform potential followers what they can expect from following your page. Consider what topics and news you will curate for your followers.
Here’s Think Bespoke’s promise:
‘For LinkedIn tips and insights to assist your career and business, please follow Think Bespoke’s LinkedIn Company Page’.
Your promise should inform the content you post. And remember to post content from other sources, not just your own!
2. Add LinkedIn logo & LinkedIn Company Page link to your Website
If you are not sure how to pick up the link to your company page, I show you how in the first minute of this video featured in step 7.
LinkedIn also offers embed codes for this purpose. For follow company page plugins from LinkedIn click here.
3. Add Company Page link to your email signature
4. Promote your LinkedIn Company Page on your Social Media Channels
Each month I add a visual to my other channels with my LinkedIn Company Page link, inviting my community to follow Think Bespoke on LinkedIn.
5. Provide a news item in your newsletter asking people to follow
6. Invite people who connect with you on LinkedIn to follow your Company Page
7. Share your LinkedIn Company Page on your LinkedIn Profile as a post (update) once a month
