So, whether you’re a B2B and/or B2C company, now is a great time to start leveraging LinkedIn to find and attract your target market.
Here are 8 ways to attract high-quality leads with LinkedIn.
#1: Add a Strong Call to Action and Link
Did you know you can add custom banners to your company page for free? And did you know each of these banners can link back to your site?
You can add up to three different linkable product banners (646 pixels x 222 pixels) to the Products & Services section of your company profile. This is a great way to funnel LinkedIn traffic to a webinar, case study or other type of targeted landing page.
Many businesses are missing this opportunity. If prospective clients make an effort to visit your Products & Services section, you should provide a simple way for them to contact you by linking to your site or targeted landing page with your banner.
