How to use LinkedIn to get more leads and sales with Janine Coombes 

How can you use LinkedIn to get more leads and sales? 

Do you know what type of content works specifically for your business and your audience? 

This week on the podcast, I interview small business marketing manager Janine Coombes. Janine helps one-man-band business owners to narrow down the one thing they want to be known for and to promote their business. 

Earlier this year, Janine published a spoof video of herself all dressed up, wearing pearls, and putting on a silly voice. On LinkedIn. The video became so popular with her audience that Janine decided to start her own video series – The Secret Marketing Show. Now in the process of planning the third series of her show, Janine is testing out a new format. But what was the key to the success of her videos? Janine decided to just be herself – to create content that appeals to her personality and her brand. To be bold and brave enough to create content that allows her to attract the right audience and put off people who wouldn’t want to work with her. 

You will learn…

  1. How to find your first clients after leaving your corporate career, even if you decide not to work with corporate clients.   
  2. Why you should use clear calls to action at the end of your LinkedIn posts to attract leads and make sales. 
  3. Why it’s important to have goals when posting content on social media – for example, are you looking to get engagement on your content, or do you want to make sales?
