There’s no doubt about it. LinkedIn is essential in the B2B marketing world, and yet so many brands don’t know where to start. Many are stuck following the old-school method of prioritizing promotion over engagement (something Metadata was guilty of in the early days.)

Mark Huber, Head of Brand & Product Marketing, and Justin Simon, Senior Content Marketing Manager at Metadata, join this episode to explain where Metadata’s LinkedIn strategy started out and how transforming it has led to great success. They explore why brands struggle to gain traction, how to be proactive on LinkedIn, and why LinkedIn is really a publishing platform, not just a promotional one.

Find out:

  • How Metadata has transformed its LinkedIn strategy
  • How to push out content that really creates an impact
  • Justin’s three most important learnings about LinkedIn
