LinkedIn users are professionals, they are always on the lookout for new big ideas and insightful content. So make sure your content offers something new or something of real value, otherwise, you might end up creating a negative image among the global professionals.

However, LinkedIn is quite different from the other social networking platforms as it focuses on professionals only. Back in 2011, there were around 640 million professionals worldwide, and at that time LinkedIn had over 135 million users. 

Despite focusing on professionals, it offers features that are common in other Social Media platforms. You can post updates, comment on content, react to posts, and send connection requests to other people like you would on Facebook. Your profile on LinkedIn works as a digital resume for you. It displays your work experience, education, achievements, accomplishments, and recommendations.

Professionals know what to look for in a product, they don’t keep irrational expectations and most importantly they are willing to spend money. LinkedIn users are more likely to be on the lookout for new breakthroughs, new productivity hacks, and new big ideas. If you do marketing the right way you can reach and even create a completely new user base.

Business Growth With LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a great place to attract other businesses as we already mentioned. You can initiate B2B links by sharing what your company is doing, and what are your plans, and in that process create links for collaboration. LinkedIn is known as the most popular social networking site for professionals. 46% percent of the social media traffic to B2B company sites is from LinkedIn. If you are thinking about whether or not you should start sharing content on LinkedIn, know that 3 million LinkedIn users share content every week on the platform. Additionally, exploring the benefits of using LinkedIn Sales Navigator can further enhance your B2B networking efforts.
