As of 2018, some social media platforms have died out (Google Plus), some have shifted their philosophy (Facebook) but one in particular has become an increasingly popular medium for content marketing. The platform we are referring to, of course, is LinkedIn. As an HVAC contractor, you might think of LinkedIn as a waste of time. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact every HVAC company could stand to benefit from the following LinkedIn features:
- Company Pages: A great platform for company news, blog posts, and case studies
- Publishing: An opportunity to share professional experience, industry trends, and more
- SlideShare: A channel through which to present video content, infographics, etc.
- Sponsored Content: Generate leads with industry articles and case studies
Company pages are a great place to attract prospective customers, build industry relationships, and expand network horizons. A sub category of a company page is a showcase page. If your HVAC company is launching specific initiatives, showcase pages can help you promote their awareness to a wide audience. Pages are also a great place to share company news, industry research, and visually appealing graphics and / or statistics. Call (800) 353-3409 for HVAC LinkedIn marketing services.
How to Create a Linkedin Company Page
LinkedIn pages are separated by individuals and companies. In the case of your HVAC company, you will want to create a “company” page. Before you do this, make sure you know your exact contact information and NAP, meaning business name, address, and phone number. Once your information is ready, you can follow LinkedIn’s tutorial. Here is how you create a company page:
- Click the work icon on the top right corner
- Click “Create Company Page”
- Enter your company name and choose a URL
- Check the verification box
- Click “Create Page”
- Click “Get Started”
Once your page is setup, you can begin to optimize it for organic search. Place keywords within the content, without causing “keyword stuffing” or any type of spammy writing that worsens the user experience. Make sure to upload your company logo and promote your new LinkedIn company page on other social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter.
LinkedIn Sponsored Content For HVAC Companies
LinkedIn’s sponsored content feature provides two primary benefits for HVAC contractors. They are; brand awareness and lead generation. With sponsored content, HVAC companies can influence the perception of their brand and services. By tracking key metrics, LinkedIn can provide valuable consumer insights that help companies make business decisions moving forward. The ultimate goal of sponsored content is lead generation, which LinkedIn makes simple with their lead gen form integration.
