Hiring Someone Else To Manage Your Businesses LinkedIn
Here at Growthlytics, we work with several businesses on increasing their LinkedIn presence organically and through ads. For some of these clients, LinkedIn is the only platform we manage! This is because the somewhat unappealing B2B world cannot generate the same engagement on Facebook or Twitter as it can on LinkedIn.
When LinkedIn is correctly managed there are a variety of opportunities, in terms of lead generation in a predominantly B2B market but also in B2C industries.
Businesses should consider LinkedIn management when…
- Your in house team are not familiar with LinkedIn
- Your business lacks the dedicated amount of time needed to run campaigns
- Your team his minimal experience in lead generation
Following this agency introduction, your LinkedIn campaigns will be set up to measure ROI predominantly. Return on investment (ROI) can always be measured no matter the marketing channel or platform. This will be done by identifying the number of leads generated and converted compared to your overall spend.
From this, you will have an understanding of your ROI. However, on top of this figure, your business must also account for the increased brand awareness your company will receive, in addition to connections made.
Like all social media presence, regardless of the platform or its B2B or B2C nature, your business’s first priority should be to identify objective goals that make measuring your levels of success easier. In absence of this, it will be significantly harder for your team to identify the value of your LinkedIn marketing strategy.
