Marketing on LinkedIn is a little different from other social channels. LinkedIn is a network of professionals, and while it’s important to show your personality on your page, your LinkedIn account should take the form of an online resume.
 
 

 
Getting your Company up on LinkedIn
Before you create a company page, you’ll need to make a personal LinkedIn account. Make sure this represents you professionally and personally. Fill in as many of the sections of your profile as you can to give your connections a well-rounded impression of your accomplishments.
 
Creating your Company Page
  • Create a personal account: you must first have a personal LinkedIn account with you true first and last name. Your personal page must meet some requirements before you can create a business page. Check those out here.
  • Create a company page: as you move your cursor over “Interests,” select “companies.” Then click “Create a Company Page.” Enter your company name and your work email address. Then click “continue” to enter your company information.

Congratulations! You’re ready to start connecting. Here’s some best tips and practices to make the most of what LinkedIn has to offer:
  • Optimize your page: use keywords in your summary, job titles, descriptions, and content links
  • Tell your Story: share your company’s story and give your connections a glimpse of the personality behind the business
  • Create a Showcase Page: create showcase pages for each aspect of your business and give your connections a chance to follow their favorite parts of your company
  • Join Conversations: participate in existing conversation groups and establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry, or start your own conversation group and invite your followers to join in
