Increase LinkedIn Company Followers

How do I Increase my LinkedIn Company followers? This is a question I am so very often asked.

How do I Increase my LinkedIn Company Page Followers?

Well luckily for us LinkedIn have decided to help us increase our LinkedIn Company Page followers, by re-introducing the “invite button”.

Increase LinkedIn Company Followers, Admin
Increase LinkedIn Followers, Click on Admin Tools

Simply go to your business page and click on admin tools. You’ll find the option to “Invite Connections” on the drop down box.

Increase LinkedIn Followers – Should I Invite Everyone to follow my Company Page?

My advice here would be NO – really think about who you want to invite to follow your page. As this is a relatively new feature people will start to go a little click happy as soon as they find it.

People will be inundated with notifications of requests to follow LinkedIn Company Pages. With this in mind I would be a little picky. Go through your connections. Really think about the people who you feel would really benefit from following your company page.

LinkedIn Company Page Invite Restrictions

There are some restrictions – to control the amount of invites being sent out from you. An admin can invite up to 50 of their connections at a session. So this is why I say, really think about who you are inviting.

Also you will find:-

If you have less than 3 connections you wont have the ability to invite connectons

If you have more than 100,000 followers on your page you may not have this option.

Please bare in mind, once invited – that’s it. You will not be able to invite that person again. So if you feel you are being flooded with invitations, hold back. Wait until it all calms down about, then start to invite!

My Invitation to You

Of course, it would be daft of me not to invite you at this point to Follow my Company page on LinkedIn! Please feel free to invite me to follow your pages too.

LinkedIn Training North East

LinkedIn Training with North East Social Media

LinkedIn Training with North East Social Media. So, it may be a while since your last LinkedIn Training session.  You may be happily using LinkedIn. Perhaps you are needing a refresher?  But I wonder …… have you checked your settings on LinkedIn recently?

A contact on LinkedIn sent me a very out of character sales type message with a link recently. The following day he messaged me to say that his account had been hacked.  I have responded to his message to tell him how to claim his account back and thought I would share this with you.

LinkedIn Training – Removing Permitted Services

Whether your LinkedIn account has been hacked or not it is still worth visiting your Permitted Services. In other words, this will ensure that you recongise all the apps you have given permission to. Permission to access your LinkedIn account.

What I mean by this is, if you have, for example, downloaded the LinkedIn App for IOS that is absolutely fine. You will see this in your permissions. But sometimes, you will have clicked other links, quite often unknowingly or unwittingly. These will be accessing your accounts too.

My LinkedIn Account has been Hacked

So has your LinkedIn Account has been hacked? Do you just want to check it? Keep your account nice and tidy. Here’s how you do it.

From your personal profile click on settings.

This will bring you to your settings page, where you are going to chose partners and services –  I like the bit where it tells me I’m the boss of my account.

You are now going to click on the Permitted Services area and your list of permitted apps and services will appear.

Permitted Services

Simply click on the remove button to unlink them from your account.  If you are doing this because you have been hacked, go back to the settings and change your password.
