LinkedIn is a massively effective platform for so much more than just recruitment. It’s an excellent source of leads for PR, partnerships and sales. In fact, according to this survey, 94.2% of journalists and 49% of decision-makers are active on LinkedIn. If you seize every opportunity, you can run your business via LinkedIn alone, feeding off of the exposure you create and leads that get generated as a result.

In some cases, it’s because the digital marketing manager can’t find enough resources for dedicated LinkedIn marketing.
