Messaging Best Practices

Here are a list of best practices to keep in mind when using messaging on LinkedIn Pages. 

Regularly check your inbox

Don’t keep people waiting for a reply. If members are engaging with your company page it’s more than likely they’re looking to learn more about your services or have a customer service enquiry. This means it’s in your best interest to keep responses fast. 

Have a dedicated role for replies 

When you reply to messages the response is coming directly from the page itself, not the LinkedIn user who is an admin. Having multiple different admins answering questions could confuse members who message in. Keep the tone consistent with one dedicated admin reliable for answering questions with the community.

Actively ask members to use the feature

Within your page content, you can inspire your audience to get in touch with you in the inbox. Where you can send free resources and capture fresh leads to followup or pass to your team. 

Alternatively you could ask your audience to message a simple phrases to your company page to send over a dedicated resource. 

For example if you Mesasge the Maverrik Company page WIN we will send you a free copy of our latest ebook, guides or worksheet.A simple call to action that members can complete in the app, without too much fuss of contact forms or taking them off the platform.

This new feature is great to improve the engagement of your audience on your company page. As currently they only served as shop widows and few pages rarely publish regular content. This will inspire more users to engage with company pages and those company page admins to get involved with more direct conversations with their audience.
