LinkedIn Product Pages for Lead Generation

LinkedIn is every business’s favorite social media platform with over 740 million members and 55 million registered companies. But the question is, ‘Is your business leveraging LinkedIn to its maximum potential?’

LinkedIn is now an excellent way of acquiring qualified leads and converting them into payable customers. The brand new ‘LinkedIn Product Page’ feature enables businesses to gather five-star ratings product testimonials and generate leads with attention-grabbing CTA’s.

But to use this lesser-known feature to bring more awareness to your product/services, you must understand its benefits and uses. To help you out, we’ve created a comprehensive guide to creating product pages on LinkedIn:

What are LinkedIn Product Pages

Introduced in December 2020, LinkedIn product pages serve as an online store minus the payment process. This way, you can showcase your products and services on LinkedIn to attract prospective buyers. It also helps you build and strengthen credibility by providing factual information about your products and brands.

LinkedIn product pages are a hub for B2B businesses where you can:

  •   List your products
  •   Add detailed product descriptions
  •   Include media, including videos and images
  •   Integrate customer ratings and reviews
  •   Link to sales pages on your website

A LinkedIn product page can help encourage potential buyers to make confident purchases.

In addition, it also works as a digital proof of your company’s success and product reliability as you share customer ratings, product rankings, and reviews from the LinkedIn community members. These are usually your genuine customers who rank your products on a scale of 1 to 5 and share feedback on your product performance.

Typically, it is a short 500 characters review highlighting your products’ pros and cons and critical factors. The LinkedIn reviews let the customers choose pre-set rating options, such as easy-to-use, innovative, good customer support, or easy setup. These reviews are visible to new prospects and visitors.

You, as a company, add a hashtag for your products to help customers stay updated with the latest developments and news. This way, you can connect with your loyal customers and new prospects in a more engaging manner.

4 Reasons To Have a LinkedIn Product Page

LinkedIn product pages are an excellent way of building awareness and converting leads. Here, we discuss four core reasons to create a LinkedIn product page:

  1.   Establish a Social Proof

When LinkedIn users visit your product page, the website prompts them to leave a 500-character long product review rating between 1 and 5.

These reviews are accessible and visible to everyone and include the customer’s name and profile photo.

Moreover, active users must confirm they have used the products before leaving a review. This way, you can rest assured potential customers will only come across genuine customer testimonials.

  1.   Put Your Products in the Limelight

Including product highlights on your product page is an excellent way of promoting your products to prospective customers.

This way, you can assist your customers in their decision-making process and enable them to make informed purchases.

  1.   Create a Digital Business Hub

LinkedIn product pages are a central hub where businesses can promote their products, attract qualified leads, and grow their brand.

On the other hand, LinkedIn showcase pages exist under a parent company page. It enables brands to foster a community of followers around a specific subject.

Product pages are bottom-funnel marketing and help businesses connect prospects to experts, cultivate customers’ voices, and generate leads.

LinkedIn showcase pages come in the middle of the funnel and educate prospects about products, benefits, and capabilities.

  1.   Use Dedicated Pages to Promote Services

LinkedIn’s product pages do not allow businesses to showcase their services.

For this reason, the social media platform offers businesses dedicated LinkedIn services pages to put their services in the spotlight.
