5 practical tips to strengthen your employer brand on LinkedIn
- Use a personal approach
As a business, transparency is key to building trust with your audience and prospects. Also, having a strong brand identity makes your brand more recognizable. Involving your talent in this approach can be a great way to motivate teams while still being authentic and personal – always remaining professional – means sharing personal photos of you and your teams, sharing your values, goals, accomplishments and collaborations.
The way your personal, team and company profiles are written is key in this process.
“The personal profile is the receptacle of your traffic. You might as well take care of it,” says Virginie Cantin, an expert in LinkedIn profile optimization.
- Create content on a regular basis
It is important to regularly share quality content that is related to your brand if you want to boost your digital presence and attract new customers. On the contrary, by sharing irrelevant content, you risk losing your subscribers and not attracting your target audience. But quality is not the only aspect to consider when publishing content. You also need to post regularly. For this reason, we advise you to prepare your content in advance through an editorial calendar.
- Expand your network
Regularly inviting new contacts related to your field helps expand your audience. This audience will be likely to see your posts and therefore recognize your brand. Don’t forget your company page.
“The challenge is to invite as much in your personal network as in the company page with the objective to reach the Linkedin limit respectively every week, every month” reminds Virginie Cantin
- Optimize your SEO
LinkedIn is both a search engine and a social media site. The terms you choose are therefore very important. Therefore, when we talk about quality content, we are not just talking about a high definition image. We are also talking about a good mastery of hashtags and knowing how to write a text with effective keywords in order to boost your profile.
“Your personal profile and company page are at the heart of this SEO process. Headlines, hashtags, descriptions are all elements among others to optimize from an SEO point of view” says Virginie Cantin.
- Optimize the visibility of your publications
How you post (time and day, reactions, comments, links, etc.) matters just as much as the content itself. Indeed, we must not forget the algorithm of LinkedIn.
Applying strategies to optimize the visibility of your content is crucial to maximize the ROI of your publications.
One of the strategies can be to create a community of ambassadors who are alerted when you publish in order to eventually react to your content. Indeed, the more people engage with your post (by liking, commenting or sharing it) in a timely manner, the more LinkedIn’s algorithm will consider it qualitative content and publish it more widely.
The limits of LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a powerful communication vector that can boost a brand, but be careful, you need to set up a process to support your ambassadors in order to avoid possible slippage, avoid possible “bad buzz” and remain authentic.
To differentiate yourself from the competition, investing in your digital presence and brand has never been more important.
LinkedIn is a powerful communication tool and talent management is at the heart of the branding process. Indicators such as turnover, anonymized surveys, audits can help you see the perception of your employees on your brand. There is a real opportunity to involve your talents in your LinkedIn corporate publications, to involve them in building your brand. And when we talk about talent, we are talking about multi-generational talent.
