Although the platform has had a bad rap in recent months and is – currently at least – primarily a private user network, as a business owner you may be considering how useful it is as a sales and lead generation tool.

The popularity of LinkedIn Video has skyrocketed, since native video was launched on the platform in 2017. LinkedIn reports that video content has grown faster than any other type of content on its website. Apparently, people are twenty times more likely to re-share video content from LinkedIn - compared to other platforms - and five times more likely to engage with other LinkedIn members after viewing it. If written content is still King on LinkedIn, video is definitely its Crown Prince.

LinkedIn Live Streaming Is Coming! Are You Ready To Go Live?

Posted by Kerry Baker on 29-Aug-2019 12:01:18



Have you heard? LinkedIn is following in the footsteps of Facebook and Instagram and have jumped on the live streaming wagon!

How To Make Black Friday & Cyber Monday Work For B2B Businesses

Posted by Kerry Baker on 11-Nov-2016 10:25:00


Most of you would have heard of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. If you are, or ever have been in the B2C industry I have no doubt that you will have witnessed first-hand the money that can be generated from these events.
