LinkedIn Marketing Guides on Branding, Leads and Advertising
This week, LinkedIn announced LinkedIn Marketing Guides, covering vital areas for growing your presence on LinkedIn, including brand building, lead generation and advertising.
If you use LinkedIn to market your business, you will want to take a look at the guides that they have published.
You can learn a lot from them.
For example, while LinkedIn Advertising seems more expensive, you have to remember, it isn't the same as Facebook Ads. You are reaching a different audience and likely dealing with higher priced items, so the cost of advertising, compared to the revenue your business could generate by applying the information from the LinkedIn marketing guides.
Here is a look at the guides to help improve your marketing on LinkedIn.

Here are the tips that she shared.
What Types of Businesses Should Use Live Streaming?
- Any business can use live streaming.
- Determine what you will discuss on a live stream. Inteviews tend to work best.
- Assess whether you have the time to live stream.
Live Or Pre-Recorded Videos, Which Should You Use?
- Both can work for a business. Review competitors to see how they are using live and pre-recorded video content.
- Live streaming allows for real-time engagement with your audience.
- Test live and pre-recorded video to see which one your audience prefers to watch.
- If you want to edit your videos, pre-recorded is best. Live doesn't allow for fixing mistakes.
