LinkedIn Industry Options Update



How long ago did you set up your company's LinkedIn profile?


LinkedIn used to only offer a few industries that companies could use on their business pages, forcing them to choose labels that really didn't fit and made it tough for new clients to find them.


For our clients in the livery industry, their closest option was Truck Transportation, which really doesn't convey luxury, high-end passenger transportation in vehicles spanning sedans, SUVs, limousines, Sprinter vans, buses, and shuttles.


Fortunately, now LinkedIn offers hundreds of options, so if you haven’t updated your profile in a while, now is the time! Our livery clients can choose between Ground Passenger Transportation, Taxi and Limousine Services, Shuttles and Special Needs Transportation Services, and Sightseeing Transportation, depending on the focus of their businesses.


With over 400 categories to choose from, LinkedIn now provides a more organized and streamlined way to target specific industries when searching for candidates or businesses. This is a great tool for those looking to network in niche categories.


A full list of all categories can be found below. Take a look and update yours as needed! The more detailed your industry description, the easier it is to find you! And if you have any questions about using LinkedIn for marketing, contact us at info@lmcspotlight.com.
