What are LinkedIn Showcase Pages?

Today, few businesses are islands.

Many companies are complex, offering various and disparate products and services for which they must create multiple marketing campaigns to reach different audiences.

This can make social media marketing resemble a juggling act. And that’s fine, even unavoidable; but while juggling, you need to make sure you don’t drop any metaphorical balls.

Showcase pages allow companies with multiple brand messages to segment them easily and deliver them to the right audiences.
