Linkedin, one of the best B2B platforms for lead generation

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: awesome, I highly recommend Linkedin to improve brand positioning and generate B2B sales

Pros:

Easy of use, possibility to reach different decision-makers, option to build your own personal brand, close business with top companies

Cons:

sometimes takes too much time to load some pages, specially in the "search mode" or when updating a profile. Linkedin should work on a way to export contact information in a easy way

My experience for using LinkedIn for Business

4.0 last month New

Comments: In my opinion, LinkedIn for Business offers a powerful suite of tools for networking, recruitment, and brand building. even if it is much more expensive than other platforms.
finally, the platform's benefits generally outweigh its drawbacks. For business, it can be a highly effective component of a comprehensive business strategy.

Pros:

First It provides a platform to connect with industry leaders, colleagues, and potential clients.LinkedIn's recruitment features are crucial. The ability to post job listings, and search for candidates. At last sharing content such as articles, blogs, and updates is straightforward and reaches a targeted audience.

Cons:

At first LinkedIn's premium services, especially for recruitment and sales, can be quite expensive The platform's algorithm can sometimes limit the visibility of posts in the feed. and maybe you are threatened to lose your account.

Unethical Review Practices: LinkedIn's Broken False Information Policy and Blocking System

2.0 3 months ago

Comments: As a small non-profit, we recently experienced a concerning situation on LinkedIn. A former board member with whom we separated continued to list themselves as actively involved on their profile as the Chair of our Board. We contacted LinkedIn to address this inaccurate information and provided clear documentation (BOD minutes, public announcements on their website, etc) of the separation date. While LinkedIn initially removed the inaccurate information after 14 days, it reappeared the next day with a fabricated end date. We contested this update, but LinkedIn refused to take action stating that the individual had filed a ‘counterclaim’ but refuses to provide the nonprofit any details so that the organization could/can respond appropriately. This experience raises legitimate concerns about the effectiveness of LinkedIn's content moderation system and their ‘LinkedIn Notice of Inaccurate Profile Information’ process. While policies exist, enforcement appears inconsistent or biased, leaving businesses vulnerable to misleading user profiles. The “blocking” feature adds another layer of complexity by allowing individuals to potentially manipulate profile information without the organization's knowledge. This system creates an unfair advantage for those with false or inaccurate information on their profiles. Our experience highlights the limitations of LinkedIn's review system. The policies, while outlining a process for addressing inaccurate profile information, appear more focused on protecting the platform itself than ensuring complete accuracy. This is evident in the lengthy process, where inconsistencies arise between the published guidelines and their actual implementation. Additionally, the system seems to lack transparency. When a counterclaim is filed, the original complainant is not provided with details to effectively address the counterclaim. Furthermore, our attempts to escalate the issue when we disagreed with the resolution have been met with continued resistance. LinkedIn has decided that they would prefer to leave the case ‘open’ and unresponded to, forcing a company to have to open another case to attempt to get further information and get to an amicable resolution. This incident serves as a warning to other businesses, especially small businesses or nonprofits: While LinkedIn has policies in place, their enforcement is at best lacking and potentially nonexistent. Consider alternative platforms for building your online presence, or be prepared to potentially face inaccurate and unaddressed reviews or negative associations on LinkedIn and the unfair legal burden to have the information removed.

Pros:

Appreciate the ease of use for the job posting/resume tracking features.

Cons:

Customer service and adherence to their own policies is ethically questionable.

Business partner selection application

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: It was a really wonderful experience, starting from registering on the site and displaying my CV. I received many calls regarding my employment in multiple companies to see my CV.
But when I created my own company, I also examined many CVs from inside Egypt to hire a number of employees, and I always recommend this practical application to business owners and family.

Pros:

found in the application many job seekers, as well as easily scanning CVs and communicating with partners from all over the world. It was and still is a unique experience, everything you need in one place

Cons:

Customer service needs to be further developed to respond quickly and solve problems

Great tool for businesses

5.0 2 months ago

Pros:

The ability to reach out and communicate with people in the same field has been valuable to me. When I am in the need to recruit, I can filter and search through the candidates that I am interested in without wasting time. It has been a great platform to network with people.

Cons:

The only downside is the spam requests from people that are not truly looking to network.
