LinkedIn enables users to contact and find specific individuals who may belong to companies, are free agents and so on. This quickly becomes an invaluable tool to find quality resources, make sales and keep within the market for a niche business that does not have to necessarily fit the standards of conventional media platforms.
Though the concept is of relative ease to digest, the intricacies of the steps required to have long term success using LinkedIn requires assistance with experienced professionals that already have conducted and orchestrated successful marketing campaigns, when using the service.
What makes linked in a necessity is the unique approach of professional exposure, acting as a resume without the traditional formalities.
With conventional marketing platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, the general marketing strategy for a successful campaign tends to favour stunning visuals, more commonly applied to entice and catch the eye of potential customers or business. Fun, sexy and engaging. It is unfortunate that some businesses may not necessarily be fun or sexy, but engagement is still very plausible when using LinkedIn.
The challenge arises when there is need to generate leads for, let's say, construction projects or plumbing jobs. Searching for contracts on the aforementioned platforms proves to be more inefficient than using LinkedIn. This is due to these platforms being catered to a specific audience. It is also more difficult to entice with contractual work when, every few minutes, there is a post selling the dream of making millions online as part of a marketing strategy, or of the latest entertainment fad that pulls at consumer attention.
As a general recommendation, it would be wiser to look for companies that are experienced and reputable with the dealings of LinkedIn. The upsides can be of much benefit in an untapped market that is richly abundant in revenue. What this means for both entrepreneurs and employees is a higher chance at generating leads for employment or expanding business. It garners access to highly skilled and highly effective employees to a potential employer's company, and tells any clients all they need to know about a company which enhances the potential for hire. If the marketing campaign is executed poorly, the results could lead to frustration and disappointment simply due to ineffective execution.
Treading the waters of a new platform is always a challenge but when approached correctly, guarantees incredible results.
