A Showcase Page is an extension of your Company Page that allows you to display, or promote your products or services to your individual marketing personas. This feature not only helps you build relationships with your LinkedIn members, but also allows you to share specific content that’s tailored to your target audience and drive engagement.
Also, members can follow their favorite Showcase Pages without having to follow the company’s primary page – although it would be nice, right? This helps you customize the content you share with your specific audience.
Managing a group on LinkedIn is a great way to establish your company as an authority in your industry. Once you become a thought leader on relevant industry-related topics, users will gravitate towards your group and may even result in potential leads.

You can also become a thought leader by joining other groups, and participating in relevant discussions. So go ahead, show off your knowledge and expertise! Just make sure it’s credible information, and try not to promote or sell your services in the process. Here are some tips for proper LinkedIn etiquette.
The best part about managing a group on LinkedIn is that you can email your fellow group members. According to a HubSpot Study, “LinkedIn is 277% more effective than Twitter and Facebook.” It’s the best way to generate new leads from LinkedIn, and also include them in your email marketing campaigns.
To wrap things up, these are just a few ways you can implement LinkedIn into your internet marketing strategy. Whether it’s optimizing your company page, showcasing your material, or managing a specific group, LinkedIn is a great way to take advantage of all the marketing resources this social network has to offer.
