How to Use LinkedIn for Marketing

We’ve already shared how you can optimize your individual LinkedIn profile, but how about utilizing LinkedIn to network and promote your business online?

  • LinkedIn is 277% more effective for lead generation than Facebook and Twitter.
  • 2 million companies have posted LinkedIn company pages. Here’s ours.
  • LinkedIn has 200 million users across 200+ countries.

Those are some staggering numbers and translates to one just one thing – LinkedIn is the best business networking resource on the Internet.
