The ‘LinkedIn Grader’

LinkedIn Grader

The ‘LinkedIn Grader’ enables people and businesses to grade themselves as to how complete and effective their LinkedIn Marketing currently is.  The Grader is a simple series of questions which enable people to measure and assess on a scale of 1 to 100 how they are currently doing.

The problem with most software and Social Media websites is ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ and this is certainly the case with most people on LinkedIn. Most (99%) people on LinkedIn don’t fully utilise the true potential of the site.

This being the case we decided to set up a simple form to allow you to assess yourself.

All you have to do is to simply answer the questions below and you will instantly have access to your very own LinkedIn Assessment Rating.

Try to be has honest as you can with your answers, as only you will see them (we don’t have access to your assessment). When you finish your questions, you will instantly be rated on a score of 1 to 100 (as a percentage).

Social Media Support

Most businesses in 2017 realise they should be doing Social Media Marketing but for many, lack of time is a factor. I am not sure if that is the case with you, but if it is then you might want to take a look at the facts.

There are over 450,000,000 LinkedIn users in the world and over 22,000,000 in the UK. There are over 3.9 billion active internet users. That’s over half of the world’s population, all connected to one another.

Even more impressive is the number of those that are using social media: 2.7 billion. One-third of our planet are tweeting, liking, sharing and hashtagging everything you could possibly think of.

And that number is set to continue rising; last year alone had a boost of 176 million more social media users. Facebook is reporting half a million new sign-ups every day and they have just stated that they are about to hit the 2 billion mark, with 1.3 billion using the site every day.

Your customers and your competitors are using social media so you need to make sure that your company is on it and represented professionally as well so that you don’t miss out.

HAVEN’T GOT THE TIME? DON’T WORRY.

We have a fantastic content writing service that is a perfect fit if you don’t have the time to write all of your social media content. Below we have outlined six reasons why businesses use our content writing service:

  1. It saves you time so that you can do what you do best, run your business.
  2. Fill out a questionnaire about your company so that we have absolute understanding of how your company operates, its values and what you would like us to write your social media about.
  3. Anyone visiting your social media pages will see activity not days or weeks ago but often hours ago, therefore projecting a professional image of your company with assurances that someone is available to talk to in your company.
  4. You have 7 days to review, edit or delete the content that has been scheduled for your company before it gets published, therefore keeping you in complete control of the content that is going out on social media about your company.
  5. Pictures paint a thousand words, with this in mind we create professional looking images to appear on your social media pages amongst the content that will include your branding, logo and contact details.
  6. You can see which hashtags generate the most amount of traffic to your website and then include them with any content that you choose to upload.

If you should decide to talk to us about the content writing service, please call now on 01256 242 272.

Testimonials

“have had the pleasure of working with Steve at The Prudent Marketer and have been enormously impressed with his knowledge and attention to detail. His considerable skills have allowed my business to take full advantage of the most up to date marketing techniques and in a short time he has completely and positively altered my perception of how to best communicate with my existing Clients and target market. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve Mills to those wanting to significantly move their businesses forward”.

Neil Hagerty – BPMS Limited

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.  It was packed full of relevant, up-to-date content, covering a variety of marketing techniques that all delegates on the course could use and optimise within their organisations.  The workshop was well-structured with Steve continuously asking for our opinion, sparking countless discussions. I found it very engaging and interactive.  The environment was very relaxed,  and I felt comfortable asking questions (however silly they were)! Finally, Steve provided great resources to take away from the session.  I am looking forward to the next one!

Maisie Cole – K3 Consultancy and Training Services

Went on a fantastic course yesterday with Steve Mills – The Prudent Marketing Company. Many thanks for a concise, yet truly valuable morning – highly recommended.

“I attended a marketing seminar given by Steve Mills The Prudent Marketer yesterday and I thoroughly recommend you check out what he has to offer.  It’s a must if you’re a SME.  I found Steve’s seminar a real eye-opener. Well done and thank you Steve Mills – The Prudent Marketing Company .

Thanks again Steve.

Brian Dunne -Managing Director – SVM Europe

I have been putting into practice what I learnt from your internet day and have found I have got the House on to Page 1 on Google under a certain number of search terms which as you can imagine made my day.
I must just say it was a brilliant day and I got a lot out of it and found it fascinating.  I am going to register for your newsletter and you never know one day Langar Hall Hotel may call for another Prudent Marketeer day for Charlotte and I to attend.

The 10 Biggest Lead Generation Mistakes Businesses make..

The 10 Biggest Lead Generation Mistakes Businesses make..

Let’s start our relationship by me offering you a FREE copy of “The 10 Biggest Lead Generation Mistakes Most Small Businesses Make”.

Did you know that 6% of your industry are making 80% on the income, leaving only 20% of the income for the remaining 94%?  Did you also know that being in that top 6% has nothing to do with how good you are as an accountant, landscape gardener, hair dresser, or whatever it is you do?

What gets you into the top 6% is the effectiveness of your sales and marketing.  In other words, your ability to create and then convert leads into sales is essential for your business success and it is important to make sure that you are getting the best return on investment from your sales and marketing time, money and effort.

The Prudent Marketer has over 25 years experience advising small businesses on how to market their products and services and has worked within hundreds of industries and with thousands of businesses.  We help small businesses improve the return on investment that they make in their sales, marketing and bottom line profit.

In this book, we discuss some of the main mistakes that we see businesses make time and time again.  So, if you would like to know what to avoid doing, you can download it now. 

Here’s the truth …  If a friend told me this report was available to me, I’d be thinking: I need to know what these mistakes are so that I can avoid making them.

I wish you every success and even more profit.

Steve Mills – The Prudent Marketer

“As a small charity it’s not easy competing with the big names on getting social media attention. Not only that, your online visibility is your calling card and a representation of your brand.

Steve made us understand how we could use social media to our benefit even more and, thanks to him, it’s now an integral part of how we communicate and get the message out.

Thanks Steve!”
