It May Be Time to Give LinkedIn Some Serious Consideration

First, a confession: back in 2019, we were exactly where you may be. We didn’t think social media could be an overly successful channel for B2B marketing. Fast forward to 2020 when the pandemic hit. Our clients were actively looking for ways to reach their customers digitally, since in-person visits were no longer an option. People were being inundated with email marketing, so we turned to LinkedIn, the social media platform of choice for professionals. LinkedIn not only got the job done; it was amazingly effective and has since become part of most of our clients’ customer outreach programs.

The Unique LinkedIn Algorithm & Why It’s Beneficial to You

LinkedIn is similar to other social channels, but its amplification method is very different. While typically in B2B marketing, we focus on the Company Page, Individual Pages hold the power. Why? First, people follow people on LinkedIn; they’d much rather connect to a person than follow a company. Second, when a person posts on their profile, that post is shared with their Connections. When their Connections ‘Like’ the post, the post is further amplified and shared to additional Connections, etc. Thus, the magic of our B2B LinkedIn success comes from employee advocacy—using company employee profiles to broadcast company content to their connections and amplify that content exponentially.

To Begin Your LinkedIn Journey, Ask Yourself These Questions:

Who’s My Audience and Am I Connected to Them?

Getting Company Page Followers is challenging, but what about your salespeople’s LinkedIn networks? Are they actively connecting to their customers and prospects? While you’d expect the answer to be a resounding ‘yes’, often the answer is ‘no’. They’ll need a push, but you can help guide your sales teams in expanding their LinkedIn Connections by focusing on:

  • Current customer contacts
  • Prospects you are looking to do business with
  • Partners

Control Associates Helps Customer Gain Knowledge & Insights by Socializing Its Alarm Data—Beyond the Control System

In pharmaceutical companies, alarms are critical to the health of a room—and the viability of the product being manufactured there. Alarms, as part of the Control System, provide detailed information such as what day, time, how long, and if there was any product being made in that room when the alarms occurred. However, the Control System is typically in a separate room or secure part of the facility, where not everyone can have access to it—for many good reasons. But what if others can benefit from access to some of the data or the amalgamation of that data?

To address this challenge, the Control Associates Data Management team created an integration between the Control System and the industry’s widely accepted Data Historian tool.
