NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Resourceful small businesses are continually looking for unique social channels to get their brand stories in front of new audiences. These owners also need to do more with less, which means selecting a social media platform that reaches their ideal audiences and delivers high levels of engagement. Enter: the power of LinkedIn. However, changing technology means that even the savviest of LinkedIn users might be unaware of how to make their content more shareable on this platform.
To help marketers make the most of their LinkedIn posts, PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit contributing author Steve Lazuka provides content creation best practices that not only spark interest, but helps promote the content far and wide. Takeaways from 5 Tips for Creating Shareable Content on LinkedIn include:
- Create a click-worthy title: Create intriguing titles that encourage readers to click through into the article and ensure the content delivers on the promise of the headline.
- Choose the right audience: Identify the target audience before putting pen to paper. If the goal is to expand the current customer base, focus on appealing to the interests of non-customers and use their language when addressing them.
