Analyze the competition before launching

Before publishing your own content, we recommend that you carry out social media monitoring.

The idea is not to copy competitors, but to do better.

  • Take inspiration from the problems encountered by their customers. This will allow you to generate interesting user insights that can give you the idea of the hook for your next LinkedIn publication, for example.

  • Look at the posts that worked the most, what were the topics? The format used (carousel, photo, video, etc.)?

  • Go further and don't look only at your competitors. Find out what's working right now on the LinkedIn network, according to the current algorithm.

Think about different themes for your posts

As we said above, test different topics to cover to capture preferences. It’s a gift, we have identified 5 topic ideas for you:

  • Talk about the problems encountered 

  • Talk about fun facts about your business (or about you)

  • How is recruitment going within your company?

  • What skills were acquired during the year?

  • What is your customers' main problem? Give a solution.

Furthermore, dealing with different subjects means that you know your sector perfectly, its positive points and the most difficult ones. Perfect for gaining the trust of your future customers.
