Analyze your LinkedIn Company Page Statistics

Successfully managing a LinkedIn Company Page is not just about the content you share. LinkedIn’s algorithm, as well as feedback from your audience, should impact what you post and when you post it. Your LinkedIn Analytics provides insights you need to evaluate the effectiveness of your inbound strategy. The LinkedIn company page offers a lot more statistics than a simple LinkedIn profile!

First of all, you should know that publishing content on a regular basis is a prerequisite to have enough data to analyze.

Knowing the statistics of your LinkedIn page is one thing, using them is another.

The “views” and “visitors” allow you to measure the relevance of the animation of your page. If the number of visitors is growing, what you are doing is relevant and attracts.
The “clicks on the personalized button” is important to measure the effectiveness of your inbound marketing strategy. If the number of clicks increases, it means that visitors have entered your inbound marketing tunnel.

The traffic on the company page is not only related to the publications made. The graph allows you to follow peaks of activity that can come from different factors: posts published on LinkedIn personal profiles, the website, the newsletter, other social networks… It is also a way to measure if, the “traffic” objectives linked to certain publications on your LinkedIn page have worked.
The two curves related to the device used show whether or not it is necessary to adapt your content to the mobile phone.

  • observe the type of content that works best
  • know the number of people affected
  • whether the post was effectively published on linkedin, i.e., whether it met the algorithm requirements to boost the post’s visibility and obtain a greater number of impressions.

By correlating the visitor statistics with the most relevant publications in terms of impressions, it is possible to see if they have attracted new visitors to the company page.

c- Follower demographics

3Visitor Demographics

Here, the data shows whether the followers obtained are indeed part of your target group.
If your target is not among your followers , this leads you to rethink your strategy.
It is important to take note of this data because the list of followers on your LinkedIn page can be extracted and exploited. This point will be discussed in the second part.

The LinkedIn follower list

A good knowledge and interpretation of your LinkedIn statistics allows you to improve all the actions set up to animate it. The goal is to be able to get enough followers on your page to manage a consistent list and use it.

Opportunities for your B2B Marketing Strategy

The list of your followers is a source of opportunities for your business since it is possible to retrieve your followers’ data.

With the extraction functionality no longer available, the follower list is in the eyes of most LinkedIn users a simple under-exploited performance indicator.

By extracting the list of people who have subscribed to your page, you will have access to their identity, their position, their function, the name of the company, the sector of activity…

Thanks to all this information, you will be able to select the people who are part of your target and get in touch with them to turn them into leads.

A point that we will develop further in the small C in this section.

Retrieve your follower list

1- Two prerequisites: install Sales Navigator and Snov.io

In order to extract the list of followers from your company page, you will need to install two extensions to your personal LinkedIn profile:

  1. Sales Navigator allows you to search for new prospects based on specific characteristics thanks to the contacts in your network (1st, 2nd, 3rd degree relationships and more). In our case, it will generate the list of followers .
  2. Snov.io allows you to extract your prospect lists (followers in our case) from Sales Navigator. This extension also allows you to retrieve the e-mail addresses of prospects. An ideal tool for building a prospect base for e-mailing prospecting. 

N.B. You can also use other premium tools such as: Phantombuster and Linked Helper.

2- Collect your followers list

Once you have previously installed these two extensions, you will be able to extract your contact list for lead generation & nurturing purposes.

Step 1: Go to Sales Navigator

Log in to your LinkedIn account and click on Sales Navigator at the top right.

Step 2: Search for your followers list

Go to the search bar and click on “advanced search”.

LinkedIn-followers-list

A drop-down menu will open. Click on search for prospects.

LinkedIn followers list

Click on “search for prospects”
A window with filters will open, select “United-States” in the geographical area and do “search”.

Step 3: Select your list of followers

To find your list of followers, go to the end of the horizontal line at the top and click on “prospects follow your business on LinkedIn”.
Then, open the Snov.io extension

LinkedIn-followers-list

Once Snov.io is open, create a new list and click “find emails and save.

LinkedIn-followers-page

Then enter the number of pages indicated on Sales Navigator.
The parameters “timeout min” and “timeout max” correspond to the time spent by Snov.io to consult the profiles of your followers. Do not increase the time in the parameters, otherwise LinkedIn will consider you suspicious.

Once finished, click on “find emails and save”.

Wait a minute, Snov.io collects contacts from your followers list …⏱

Step 4: Download the list

Go to your Snov.io profile and click in the header on “prospects”, then select your list. Once your list is visible, you will see the profiles of your followers and email addresses retrieved. These email addresses can be used for BtoB prospecting.

⚠️ WARNING ⚠️
Use only verified email addresses that appear in green.

3- Using your list of followers

The list of your followers can be used in different ways to generate opportunities:

1- Ask for a meeting with your target group’s heart of hearts
Thanks to the statistics, you know that a certain number of people are in your core target group. The idea is to contact them with your personal LinkedIn profile to arrange a meeting, to discuss topics that will interest them and that meet their needs.

2 – Invite your followers to subscribe to your newsletter

These people follow your page because they are interested in the published content. The idea is to invite them to follow your newsletter in order to push them personalized content to become leads.
Invite them by highlighting the fact that they will be notified of new content on the blog and that they will benefit from premium content.

3 – Get feedback from your followers

The objective is to collect their opinions in order to improve the animation of the LinkedIn page.  You will find a double benefit:

  1. Everybody likes to give his opinion. By asking them what they think of the content you publish, you will strengthen the link that has been created thanks to your publications.
  2. In addition to giving their opinion, they can suggest a type of content they like or topics that interest them. In this way, you will be able to complete your communication plan.

To make the most of this guide, I also advise you to read the first two parts:
