LinkedIn for Business


Thursday November 3rd & 10th 2022 – LinkedIn for business

2 x 90-minute sessions – 10.00am – 11.30am

Delivered by Marianne Smith, Managing Director of Doo Marketing, this three-part, creative, and interactive masterclass will focus on the importance of having a fully completed individual LinkedIn profile that makes the best first impression to viewers of your profile. How LinkedIn search works and how to use this to be found by prospects looking for the services you provide, as well as using it yourself to prospect for potential future business relationships.

LinkedIn is the number one lead generation platform for B2B businesses and has over 600 million users worldwide. It’s the most business orientated platform, where people look to share industry news, keep up to date with customers and look to create new business opportunities through building their network and adding value to their connections.

This three-part masterclass will be interactive with discussion and participation encouraged to ensure that delegates get the most out of the sessions and have the opportunity, to raise questions and ideas about their own businesses.

The key content areas covered during the sessions are:

You will learn the impact a fully completed, great looking individual LinkedIn profile can have on your prospects of landing new clients and how to add more than a few words and images to have an outstanding personal LinkedIn profile that makes a great first impression.

You will learn the different ways to post updates to your LinkedIn profile including link posts, photos, videos, and written articles, including the use of Hashtags and their importance to increasing your visibility. Learn how to use the search function to find the exact people you want to build business relationships with.

You will learn how to engage with other LinkedIn members including post engagement and group participation and understand the importance of a LinkedIn Company Page.
