Like any other social media platform, LinkedIn comes with a couple of challenges too, such as:

 

  • The need to publish professional contents in English and
    other languages’ translations, including German and the
    accepted language of communication of your targeted
    group.
  • Companies interested in attaining a national or regional
    prominence may fnd LinkedIn less useful.
  • LinkedIn holds the right of all uploaded contents

For every corporate LinkedIn account, it is essential to maintain a professional appearance of such profile, as this is the underlying factor that determines how far the company can develop and expand its LinkedIn network. A professional profle appearance can be achieved by the addition of exciting and relevant information about the company, as well as the products and services it offers. The same goal can also be attained by ensuring a consistent publication of relevant contents, including status reports, product promotions, press releases, informative specialist articles.
Another method of expanding a corporate LinkedIn profle is to link contacts – there is a LinkedIn feature that allows users to import existing business contacts across various email directories. It is also permissible to integrate external contents from channels like blogs and websites.

 

BONUS:

For the best results, it is strongly recommended that you optimize the first 156 characters of your description; they usually come up on Google search results for queries involving your company. And such enhanced visibility of your company’s profle across search engines speaks volume of your trustworthiness and competency.
