Why you should create a LinkedIn company profile


The business network LinkedIn is the largest professional network worldwide with over 610 million members . The portal is also becoming increasingly important in Europe.

A compelling LinkedIn company profile helps prospective customers learn more about your company, your brand, products or job offers. You can also increase your reach and expand your brand awareness by sharing relevant and qualitative contributions.

As a business network, the focus of LinkedIn is on imparting expertise and experience. Your company profile is not only a candidate for new talent, but also for possible cooperation partners.

If you are now in the administrator view of your company profile, you will be prompted to edit your page. In order to optimally design your LinkedIn page, you should consider the following elements:

· Cover picture (1,536 x 768 px): By inserting an appealing cover picture, you can score emotionally with the visitors of your page and create brand awareness. Make sure that the cover picture is also displayed correctly in the mobile view.

· Button: In addition to the already integrated follow button, you can use another button as a call-to-action. For example, redirect your visitors to your website or to register for the download of information material.

· Description and telephone number: 2,000 characters are available in the description for the CV of your company. Also add a phone number, the year it was founded and up to 20 areas of specialization for your company.

· Hashtags: The hashtag function enables you to identify relevant content in your industry. The hashtags are displayed on the right side in the "Community" box.

· Featured groups: Even if the administrator of your company profile is not a member of a LinkedIn group, you can place it in the "Featured groups" box. You can add up to ten LinkedIn groups to your company profile.
Use your LinkedIn company profile in multiple languages

Once you have created your company profile and set it up accordingly, the aim is to expand the reach of your network. In the first step, you should invite your employees to network with the company website. You have already acquired the first brand ambassadors and supporters.

Integrate the business network into your content marketing strategy and publish useful content regularly. In addition to exciting articles, you should also use rich media formats such as product videos and photo slides. You can post on your own feed and in relevant groups. Participate in public discussions to strengthen your position as an opinion leader in your industry.

Another function of your LinkedIn company profile are the so-called focus pages. These are useful to present specific products or services of your brand in more detail. This gives LinkedIn members the opportunity to find out about specific offers from you.

Especially if you are traveling in international markets, you should also use multilingualism in your LinkedIn company profile. You can translate the slogan and description of your company page into several languages. Based on the browser language of the user, LinkedIn recognizes which version of your page has to be displayed. With translations, you create closeness and trust to a global audience.
