Note: for most of the items below, you need login access to your CEO’s LinkedIn account.
1. CONNECTIONS AND FOLLOWERS:
Connections are by default also Followers. It’s important to note how many Connections/Followers your CEO has at the start of your campaign and then on an ongoing basis while your campaign runs.
From a metrics standpoint, the number of Connections you have is only visible when logged into the CEO’s LinkedIn account; other users cannot see the exact number of Connections he or she has. The Follower metric is visible from anyone’s account that is connected to the CEO. There is not a historical record of this from a Personal LinkedIn page; instead, you should manually track this metric weekly.
If the CEO becomes a “LinkedIn Influencer,” people may start following the CEO’s page without connecting with them. However, Connections should still increase.
Important questions to ask: Is the CEO’s LinkedIn audience growing? Are we reaching more people? Are more people asking to connect with the CEO because of this campaign?
