GUEST INTERVIEW: Michelle J. Raymond from Good Trading Company
If you’re building a professional personal brand today, there’s probably a 95 per cent chance you’re on LinkedIn.
You might not be as strategically active as you could be (that’s a story for another day!), but you at least have a personal profile and probably are publishing content on a regular/semi-regular basis.
If you’re running a business - even if you’re a solopreneur and the business is YOU! - LinkedIn becomes perhaps even more important, so you want to be able to get the most out of the platform.
If this sounds like you, keep reading (or just start listening to this episode!).
So, you have your personal profile buttoned down, but have you thought about setting up a LinkedIn COMPANY PAGE (aka LinkedIn Page, and LinkedIn Business Page)?
Wait … whaaat?
Like many of us, you’re no doubt busy enough without adding what is effectively another social channel!
Hear me out. It might sound counter-intuitive, creating a Company Page if you run a personal brand-based business. I mean, shouldn’t the personal profile be your focus?
Well, yes ... and, no.
My guest for this episode of the Reputation Revolution podcast - Michelle J. Raymond - puts forth a solid case as to why having a LinkedIn Company Page, alongside your personal profile, is a savvy marketing move.
Michelle is a B2B social selling consultant and LinkedIn strategist and trainer. She is founder of Good Trading Company, co-author of the book Business Gold: Build Awareness, Authority and Advantage with LinkedIn Company Pages - and host of the GOOD FOR BUSINESS show.
Indeed, Michelle is such a huge advocate for LinkedIn Company Pages that she operates three of them, along with her personal profile!
