Share your personal post on your company page and vice versa.

LinkedIn is not Facebook where people try to portray they are living the life they don’t yet have. On LinkedIn, you’ll be respected more if you share the challenges and willing to talk about things that don’t make you sound like a hero all the time. Strangely, that seems to build a long-lasting professional relationship.

10. Share your Expertise

Every now and then you see people reaching out to help most of the time it is because they lost their job. This is when you should reach out offer help, it can be your expertise or just a shoulder to cry on. You should do this without expecting anything in return. What you put out you always get back.

A final tip for entrepreneurs

LinkedIn is like anything else, only works if you invest your time in it. It’s not a magic tool, you can’t just create a profile today and get clients tomorrow. The rewards are amazing for those who give it time, effort, and planning.
