LinkedIn Company Pages
This is the face of your business on LinkedIn. It represents your brand amongst a crowd of so many million of people. Therefore, creating an awe-inspiring business page is essential and should be your foremost priority.
Once your business page is created, start leveraging your page by first requesting for recommendations for all your products and services which are shown on your product/service section. This instantly adds value to your products in terms of increasing credibility and trust.
