Why is LinkedIn better for my business than Instagram or Facebook?
Right now, LinkedIn is going through a huge change. If you can confidently convey your message, you will be able to connect, influence and convert people in your target audience. LinkedIn is currently the #1 channel that B2B marketers use to distribute content.
Will I be taught how to create a professional profile?
Yes, we will teach you not only that, but also how to build an engaged audience through LinkedIn, how to identify key connections, establish authority through content, and how to generate new sales opportunities.
Do I need to go through some study material beforehand?
Not really, however you need to select an organisation that you would want to work on for this course. This could be your own business, future business, an organisation you are currently working for, a hypothetical business or your own personal brand.
Is it all just theory?
No, right through the course you’ll learn by doing. There’s checklists and templates, discussions, activities and action planning. You’ll walk away with a comprehensive set of resources that you’ll know how to put to work and a clear plan that you can put into action.
