Utilizing a Virtual Assistant to Manage LinkedIn Accounts
LinkedIn Is one of the largest social media platforms on the internet that primarily focuses on the interactions between those working in the businessworld. It is a fantastic way to build up a large network of connections for both yourself as well as your business. Everyone who is interested in growing their organization should be utilizing this website, but it can be a headache to juggle your own personal account as well as your companies LinkedIn page when there are other things that you need to worry about. That is why with the help of Byron we can routinely maintain, update, and check in on your pages so that you do not need to worry about missing out on an inbox message or particular page view of someone important. We will be covering what you will need to do in order to prepare for a Byron assistant to handle this task for you.
Why Monitor LinkedIn?
A question you may be asking yourself is why you would want a virtual assistant to check your LinkedIn pages when you can do this yourself. Having a virtual assistant perform this task on your behalf has the benefit of being a routine habit that they will not forget to do. LinkedIn Connections can be very sparse at times so it is very easy to forget about it entirely when there is little activity going on. This inactivity however, does not mean that there is no activity as a connection on LinkedIn can be a huge opportunity for any business or individual as the connections made on this site tend to lead to a more lucrative interaction that can lead towards a new client. Time is essential when it comes to handling and responding to an inbox message, so you wouldn’t want to miss out on an opportunity because you didn’t log into your account for a week, so having Byron perform this task for you on a daily basis can prevent you from missing out on an opportunity.
Accounts to Track
It is common for an individual who works in the world of business to have multiple LinkedIn pages to keep track of for various reasons; so before sending off a request for a Byron assistant to track your LinkedIn pages, you will need to get together a list of the pages that you will want your assistant to keep track of. You will want to provide the URL’s to the pages themselves as well as the credentials so that your assistant can access them from the account holders view. Make sure that you include all the proper information in your request.
When sharing credentials with your assistant, we highly recommend you set yourself up with a password sharing service such as Dashlane in order ensure a layer of security when passing sensitive information between others online. It is always better protect yourself when possible, so we strongly urge you to do this before sending off your request.
Handling Incoming Messages
In your request, you will want to establish a system for how your assistant should handle incoming messages on your pages. You can either provide a set of template responses for the variety of messages that may appear commonly or you can instruct your assistant to alert you towards these messages so that you can handle them yourself. However you choose to go about handling this, you will need to specify how you would like your assistant to handle these types of situations.
LinkedIn also has a feature that allows you to see the amount of people visiting your pages as well as who they are if you are using their premium service. It may be a good idea to instruct your assistant to keep an eye on this information as well and keep track of these views. This is information that could be useful depending on your business and what you are currently doing, so if you choose to have your assistant monitor this aspect of your accounts as well, you will need to provide instructions on how they should log this information. Having a spreadsheet where they can log this daily activity would be a good example of what you can do in order to track and log this information, but if you have a system in mind that works for you, please be sure to provide this in your instructions.
