Two weeks into the new year and still not seeing any progress on your company page? You may be sitting behind your laptop right now, wondering how in the world you can get out of the “startup” social phase and begin growing and establishing new leads from LinkedIn. According to Top Dog Social Media, 50% of B2B web traffic originates from LinkedIn, making your company page essential for a successful B2B business.
How can I upgrade my company page and see more traffic?
Believe me, you’re not the first to ask, and you won’t be the last. Boosting your company page can seem like a hassle and take months to see results. However, by implementing certain tools, you can start seeing results much earlier. That’s why we’ve created a list of three steps to begin executing today.
Increase visual aids
That’s right, bring on the pictures. Did you know that 90% of information sent to your brain is visual? That’s why we encourage you to post more images, such as infographics. According to Demand Gen Report, infographics can increase web traffic by 12%. Executives from companies have little time to consume media, so quick visual aids can help deliver information along with attracting more viewers.
Posting at the right time
Daily posts at the correct time of day are essential to increasing web traffic, along with attracting engagement. According to research provided by Hubspot, “On average, the best time to post on LinkedIn is between 3 PM and 5 PM CDT on Wednesdays.” Now, does that mean you can only post between those times on that day to become successful? Absolutely not. But you’ll see that this is during the time of day where people are either getting out of work or have a break in their day, giving them time to consume certain media.
Being consistent with your company page is another crucial aspect of a successful media channel. Try to post three to four times a week and make sure you’re active by engaging with followers on comments, or shares.
To initiate web traffic (and maintain it), you need to establish trust with your followers. Give them a reason to follow your company page.
How can you achieve this?
Provide your audience with beneficial industry insights. Don’t get me wrong, posting updates, blogs, ‘meet the team’ inquiries are essential to a company page, but adding sharing latest industry news establishes credibility.
Take a step back and analyze your company page for a minute or two. Ask yourself, “what am I lacking?” Or “where are my successes within my page?” Initiating these tools and analyzing your page will benefit you, starting 2020 on a high note!
