How You Can Generate Leads With Your LinkedIn Profile

Social Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have a different potential to convert a user into a customer, however as like all types of social selling, they also need attention, quality and continuity.

According to different experiments and surveys, it’s identified that LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, has everything that a business needs to promote themselves, such as – huge following, quality pulses, professionals from different domains and industries, sales campaign facility and so on.

In the coming years, experts need to convey their information through social platforms rather than depending over traditional strategies. It’s better to understand what a business needs to learn or how they can use social profiles for their businesses and how small business owners can use it to generate leads.

Here are ten methods to build leads through using LinkedIn.

Start with the basics

Always try to complete your profile by keeping it simple however attractive. Provide specifications, experiences, works, skills and projects to all the members presented on the platform. Along with that choose a more specific personal URL for your profile, it will help others to know you more. It also lets them be curious to know more about you and your services/products (especially for the businesses).

Reach out for introductions

Keep yourself frontier and try to connect with others as soon as possible, that’s the major step for better presence and more connections.

Don’t feel shy or nervous, just keep out contacts of different users, you want to be in connection, message them personally in a quite interesting however prosperous way. This way keeps you in touch with them and makes your presence more valuable.

Be a part of discussions daily

A healthy discussion always leads to a better path and it makes you popular in the associated groups or circles. LinkedIn also has lots of niches to communicate and to answer different questions, it’s a great way to explore and to help others with your knowledge.

By continual efforts and active participation in different groups and communities, businesses can grow their followings and can convert most of them into a customer.

Personalise your search for connections

Who needs your service (targeted audience) is the main objective of a business and businesses always work according to that criteria. What happens if I let you know that you can search connections according to the preferred keywords?

That’s possible, by using Boolean search practices on Google, everyone can easily find out specific connections on different platforms, i.e. try on google – “” AND (“keyword 1” or “Keyword 2”) and press enter, all matching results will blow on the screen.

Regularly be in touch with connections

Never neglect a single message you got and always try to connect with your connections by sending them personalised praises, wishes, offers and general messages. Sometimes it looks like spam and irritates them, however most of the time it works well and connection shows interest in your profile.

Another way to be in touch with them is checking who visited your profile and sending them a personalised message. Even you can search connections with the same interest and most probable source of conversion.

Even reminding them about your services and products and by asking questions through status updates, you can attract your connections to contact you about it.

Generate leads by campaigning

Just like Facebook, LinkedIn also has a feature of sales campaigns, which allows you to collect leads directly. By creating multiple ads, you enhance your chances to get more leads.

Never hit pause

Do not take it as an entertaining or time passing activity, be active to get connected, to attract users and to convert them into customers. As most of the users use different social sites to get connected to others and to spread their knowledge by publishing continual posts, sharing status and sending personalised messages, you can get a chance to attract them and convert them into a lead. And this can only happen by actively accessing LinkedIn.

Write regular quality articles

Quality always leads in all areas either it is hardcore offline marketing or virtual online marketing, things that matter is the continuity. How regular you update your profile by writing quality pulses and sharing it publicly, separates you from the crowd and makes your presence stronger. So, be a regular writer and write quality pulse at least one per week.

Never wait for next time

It’s a human tendency, we wait for the second chance, however most of the time it doesn’t work well according to our proposal. So, it’s better to attack at the right time with correct resources. This strategy makes you conscious and attentive to your audience and boosts your stamina to reach your visitor and search for what they looked at you, resolve it and convert them into leads.

Connect with Twitter

LinkedIn allows you to connect your account with your Twitter profile, by allowing this feature you spread your reach and chances to get more visits to your profile. Even it increases your chances to get leads through LinkedIn.

In Summary

Especially as we come out of this pandemic, we all need to be focused and dedicated towards our small business goals. This focus helps us to convey right things at the right time, which is the most essential thing in Lead Generation. So, try to generate leads through LinkedIn and beat your competitors by leading ahead from them.
