If you are a b2b company, you should really focus on creating content for and engaging on LinkedIn. In fact, when it comes to my own personal profile I use LinkedIn heavily to meet new contacts, learn about their businesses and offer my help. I also use LinkedIn to share my blog posts, create exclusive content, and generate leads.
It's very likely that you know me from LinkedIn. Yup, LinkedIn is a cornerstone of my personal social media strategy.
