Table of Contents

Unicode is often used , which has several emoticons and characters on offer. It is a table that can certainly be inspired. Company can choose from more than 100 fonts and characters.
Boolean search is used to search for people, companies or posts based on a specific search with the help of operators. It allows for better filtering and results in better results than company expected.
It all works on the principle of the OR, AND, NOT operators: If there is AND between the words, then the filter will show the results with all the words that person have entered. If somebody enters OR, the results will include one or all of the specified dates. With the NOT operator, person will exclude the next word, which will ensure that, only wanted results are found.

Video and live video content
Live video has a great organic reach, which ensures greater visibility of your campaign, product or idea.It records the current situation you are in. Company can express itself in real time and in a real place.
People can run live videos when they leave a business meeting, close something, or want to share the results with other people. The problem, however, is that people do not have Live Videos activated automatically and must ask LinkedIn for approval.
Companies should encourage clients to share info about collaboration with the company. In fact, it will help both sides. If any of company´s LinkedIn contacts are looking for something (or someone) and company can help them, it is very beneficial for both sides. Later, maybe someone else will help your company as well.
Respond to client statuses from the company as well as from the personal profile. The client will thus see a real person who is behind the work of the company. Also consider the possibility that someone will want a personal meeting to get to know you better (of course, when the pandemic ends).
LinkedIn is basically a social network, so company should behave socially. in reality its means join discussions, share posts, or start a new debate.
LinkedIn has huge potential to reach potential clients, business partners, gradually build a personal name or find a job. It is up to companies to size the full benefit, and use LinkedIn, so that it will help them to fulfil their goals.
