With a new company tab, you can quickly reach your employees to share recent company news. Previously, you might send an email blast to your employees and tell them to share something on their social media channels. Now you can work smarter by posting them to your LinkedIn Company Page. This will reduce the number of emails and makes it easy on your employees - they only have one place to look for this information. Here is a look at these new company page updates. Why LinkedIn Company Page Updates Matter For Your Business LinkedIn has rolled out quite a number of features recently, including LinkedIn Stories, LinkedIn marketing guides and LinkedIn Career Explorer. With the launch of updates to company pages, they continue building out their platform as the destination when using social media for business. They're also further strengthening their position with the new company tab feature, ability to run lead gen forms to product pages and introduction of Stories for Pages. As a business owner, you should consider investing in LinkedIn and at least set up a Company Page for your business and add it to your LinkedIn Profile as a place of employment. This way when people are looking for businesses like yours, you have a presence. Otherwise, they won't necessarily know about you unless they happen to come across your website in search, through word-of-mouth, or other channels. As your business grows, you'll be able to use these new enhancements on your LinkedIn company page, to keep your employees updated, while making it easier to create and share content, product information and more with potential customers.
