The Power of LinkedIn: How to Grow Your Business and Connect with Your Target Audience
Updated: Apr 11
LinkedIn has emerged as a robust marketing tool that can benefit businesses of all sizes. With a user base of over 700 million active professionals, the platform offers an expansive audience to target and engage with.
One of the key strengths and the power of LinkedIn is its professional nature, which makes it an ideal platform for B2B (business-to-business) marketing.
In a recent campaign for one of our clients Colloco Marketing used LinkedIn to promote their company.
The results speak for themselves.
In just 7 days, their posts appeared in search results 283 times, resulting in 89 unique visitors to their page.
They also gained 194 new followers over the last 30 days, demonstrating the ability to build a following and increase brand awareness.
In addition, their post impressions soared to 15.8K, representing a 497.8% increase. This shows that the company's content is resonating with its target audience, and that they are successfully reaching their target market through LinkedIn.
One of the key strategies that Colloco Marketing used in this campaign was to create quality content and share posts in industry-related LinkedIn groups.
By targeting groups that were relevant to their business, they were able to reach a highly engaged audience that was interested in their content. This resulted in increased engagement and shares, further amplifying their message and reach.
------------------ Take a look at the last post we made - this wasn’t a sponsored post.
CTRs for Sponsored Messages typically average 3.2%. If you have a CTR of 7% or higher, that's pretty stellar and indicates you've likely got a great offer with well-written ad copy.
Click-Through Rate = the number of people who took action on your LinkedIn ad (the number of clicks) divided by the number of impressions (the number of times the ad was seen)
