7 tips for increasing your followers on LinkedIn company page

Company pages are big business on LinkedIn. Whether you’re an owner-managed business, a non profit or a multi-national corporate, having a company page on LinkedIn will help you increase your brand awareness, place your company as an authority in your field and help you find and nurture leads. 

It isn’t difficult to set up a company page. What’s important is that it is set up correctly and that it grows in follower numbers. A page with no followers is of no value at all. 

How are you going to encourage more people to come and see the page? How are you going to ensure that you are constantly increasing your followers on your LinkedIn company page?

Growing your page is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. It won’t happen overnight but if you follow these tips, you will see steady and consistent growth over time.

  1. Optimise Your Page

According to LinkedIn, companies with complete LinkedIn profiles receive 30% more weekly views.

Ensure that your LinkedIn company page is fully optimised by filling out all the essential information, including the profile picture, banner image, and a compelling description. Use relevant keywords in your company description to help people find you easily on LinkedIn.

  1. Post consistently

Post regularly on your company page to keep your followers engaged. How often you can post on your company page will depend upon your internal resources but I would advise to aim for a minimum of one post per week, but preferably two to three times per week. Make sure your content is informative, engaging, and relevant to your target audience so they are encouraged to read all the way through your posts instead of just scrolling past when they appear in the feed. 

Vary your subject matter too in order to place your company as a thought leader and to ensure your audience don’t get ‘content fatigue’. If you’d like 25 post ideas for free, please click HERE!

  1. Leverage Hashtags

Use relevant hashtags to increase the visibility of your posts. Research popular hashtags in your industry and include them in your posts to reach a broader audience.

Create your own branded hashtag and use it on every post. Invite people to follow your hashtag to ensure your content goes into their feed so they never miss an update from you.

  1. Employee Advocacy: 

Encourage your employees to follow and engage with your company page. They can also share your posts on their personal LinkedIn profiles, which can help increase your page’s visibility.

  1. Engage with Your Audience: 

Respond to comments and messages on your company page. Engage with your followers and build a community around your brand. If you ‘talk’ to your audience, you will remain top of mind for when your audience are ready to buy. By being conversational, you’re projecting a personality around your company page. People work with people, after all! 

  1. Collaborate with Others: 

Look for opportunities to collaborate with other companies or organisations in your industry. This can be through guest posting on their blog or social media accounts, co-hosting a webinar or event, or sharing each other’s content. Collaborating with others can help you reach a wider audience and increase your credibility and visibility on LinkedIn. It can also lead to mutual follower growth for both companies involved. It’s also great fun so definitely worth doing! 

  1. Invite your connections to follow your page:

As page admin you can invite people to follow your page. Once they’re following your page they’ll be notified when you post from it! It’s really simple to do this, I advise spending a few minutes a day doing this. 

Do you keep up to date with your company page? I really hope this will inspire you to give your company page some love.

Ditch the dull keynote speeches in favour of fun-filled, laughter-inducing groups and seminars that get the audience involved from the get-go.

I’m bubbly and vivacious by nature, which you’ll find out in my presentations. 

I strive to appeal to those across sectors and disciplines, whether it be to those in more traditional professional roles, such as senior executive management, or those who are solopreneurs, freelancers or working in creative industries.

I ended up leaving my day job behind and achieved a diploma in Social Media Marketing. I set up Sarah Clay Social to help businesses promote themselves on social media. While using various platforms to promote my business, one stood out – LinkedIn. I seemed to attract new clients without really trying. All without a cheesy sales pitch and just by being myself. 

I was astonished by the success I had with LinkedIn and couldn’t get over how handy my childhood techniques had been. I realised that all the tools I’d learnt as a child were immensely useful! Soon after, I realised that other business owners weren’t using LinkedIn to its fullest potential. 

That’s why I’ve made it my mission to help business owners, just like you, harness the power of LinkedIn and be more successful in business.

Are you ready to leverage LinkedIn’s potential?
