Company/
Showcase Pages
Your Company Page is the foundation
for a strong LinkedIn presence. It’s
often one of the first pages that LinkedIn
members visit when checking out a
company, making it the perfect place
to feature thought leadership content,
including links to your latest and greatest
whitepapers, eBooks, and how-to content.
Company Page
With the introduction of Showcase Pages,
companies can now extend their thought
leadership content by creating dedicated
pages for their more prominent brands,
businesses, and initiatives. Through
Showcase Pages, companies can
segment content to distinct audiences
who are interested in different aspects
of their business.
Showcase Page
Develop a unique and
groundbreaking viewpoint
Use content marketing concepts
and best practices to disseminate
your thought leadership
Deliver thought leadership at
every stage of the buying cycle
Define success criteria and
measure and report on it
While any person or company can establish itself as a thought leader, it doesn’t happen
overnight. It takes commitment and a long-term strategy. Just like a well-defined
blueprint to build your dream house, your thought leadership strategy won’t deliver
results overnight—it takes time to develop. But don’t think you have to go into it alone.
Here’s a handy checklist for thought leadership success:
LinkedIn Groups can be a great place to extend the reach of your thought leadership content as well
as gather new content ideas. Jennifer Lonoff Schiff, business and technology writer and a contributor
to CIO.com, suggests these ways to maximize your thought leadership efforts with LinkedIn Groups:
SlideShare
Join groups where your
customers and prospects are.
Don’t stay siloed in the LinkedIn
Group you create. Be the life of
the party and make the rounds.
Join Contribute Poll
Contribute to group discussions.
Our research finds that
participants who comment on
group discussions get four times
the number of profile views.
Poll group members to conduct
market research and then publish
the results as new content.
Research shows that people seek out
visual content and find it engaging. Think
about how you can turn your content visual,
especially content like research and trend
reports, and then share your content
out on SlideShare. It's not only a terrific
repository for content in general, but serves
as a great place for thought leadership
content specifically.
SlideShare embeds seamlessly across blogs,
landing pages, resource pages and more.
And it renders beautifully in the LinkedIn
feed and Twitter feed. That means it’s easy
for people to consume your content in its
native environment.
Need more thought leadership content
to feed your LinkedIn editorial calendar?
Encourage your employees to publish
long-form content on LinkedIn, then share
their posts from your Company Page. We
encourage our members to write about
their professional experience. Empower
your employees to write about topics
important to them and to your business.
Sharing organic updates to your Company Page
allows you to reach your followers, but if you want
to extend the reach of your content, sponsor it.
Sponsored Updates help you achieve your goals
by sharing content in the feed with a targeted
audience who are highly engaged on LinkedIn.
Define what thought leadership
means to you/your organization
Secure top-level buy-in and support
Align thought leadership with
product/service and organizational
leadership goals
Establish a process for brainstorming,
vetting and developing a
manageable number of ideas
Sponsored
Updates
Groups
Long-Form
Content
A Blueprint for Thought Leadership Success
Building Your Brand
On
Suggested Topics:
What concrete advice would you give to
someone hoping to enter your field?
What your industry will (or should) look like in
5, 10, or 15 years and how it will get there.
What is the biggest problem your industry
needs to solve?
What skill is essential in your job or at your
company, and why?
How has your job, profession or industry
changed since you started?
