Linkedin's New Company Pages. Have You Seen These?
I got invited to add a "Company Page" on LinkedIn....so, I finally added my info. Have any of you done so? Not sure if this is going to stay a free feature of if we'll have to upgrade to the expensive premium membership....but, I'm willing to try it.
Turns out I joined in 2013, but I bet I haven't been there since early 2015 when I was still trying to get back into TV. I am updating now and guess I need to "learn" how to use the site somewhat. Here's my link in
That's very interesting! I am on there as a regular person from my former career; I did not know there was a company page. I am not sure I have the confidence in myself as a photographer to make a company page but I will enjoy following you all. :)
I don't have a company page and I don't have premium, I get along fine with my current page which is at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dorothyberrylound/ It is available in English and Italian and has some YouTube videos linked into it as well.
You're best to post mostly in your regular feed, as the reach there is deeper than Twitter. However, use a Page like a website because you can link it to your profile .... that image next to your company on the Experience section. I click those all the time when checking out others profiles.
I had a company page.
I checked it one evening and discovered that some guy in a foreign country was claiming to be an employee of mine.
I shut it down...there was no way to get LinkedIn to investigate.
Yes, Gaby, your work is lovely! You just gained a new "follower" here on FAA....if you do the LinkedIn thing ( which I hope you do ), please come back here and share your link so we can "connect" with you there.
Thanks for this, Rose! I didn't know you could have a personal AND a business LinkedIn page at no cost.
I read Marlene's link above, and it is apparently better to "connect" than just "follow" on LinkedIn. Here is my current Profile page - please "connect" with me there and I will respond! https://www.linkedin.com/in/susan-wiedmann/
Marlene, was your experience about the phony employee a recent one? I am wondering if there is now a way to prevent that.
You can add up to seven pictures to your profile. I think you can also add slideshows, but have makes a slide show an 3rd party app.
You can fid the button for sliseshow under your work button on the top left.
I have not done it yet, I need to... it would be great for a portfolio
With regards to connection or following, I always encourage following. Because your connections are suppose to be people you know something about who you can refer to others. This is the purpose of LinkedIn from day one. Here is what I say on my page summary:
" Instead of sending a connection request, please Follow me found at the 'More' button (I save the 30k LinkedIn connection limit for people I know, clients I work with and potential prospects). "
