LinkedIn profile

The LinkedIn profile is linked to a person and not directly to a company, however, the person who opens their profile can make brand awareness for the company on it through valuable content.

People engage much more than a page, having more tools available than a page such as messages through the InMail function or articles through Pulse.

Also, a profile has 10 times more visibility than a page.

LinkedIn page

The LinkedIn page is linked to a company, institution, or organization and must show all the information and products and/or services offered by the brand.

The page can have images coordinated with the profiles of those who work for the company: this increases the reputation and brand awareness of the company itself.

The page can be indexed on Google and LinkedIn’s internal search engine and allows you to launch content campaigns and promotions.

In addition, the page has more complete Insights than the profile that allows you to better monitor and verify the performance of your company, said LinkedIn Analytics.
