Company page performance reporting
WE've harvested all data from thousands of company updates
Not by scraping, but using a real API connection
We had over 6.000 updates, but the engagement data of posts older than 12 months was not available through the API. So this report is based on updates posted between November 1st 2019 and November 31st 2020.
We will update this monthly with added data.
and we turned that data into real insights
We learned a lot. We now know a lot of secrets about Company Page performance that were not known or published before.
Continue reading to find out all those secrets, because we love to share them with you.
insights about page visitors
Company Pages are visited mostly on weekdays, using a desktop computer or laptop. Almost equally spread over the days.
In the weekends the number of visitors drops to 40%, but from that visitors, over 75% uses mobile.
Maybe not so surprising, but now it’s proven by data.
overview Page visits
The overview page (where you can read the about section of the page) is mostly visited by desktop users.
It is important to completely fill out all fields for the Company Page.
Keep in mind that you can have multiple languages for the headline and about text, based on the language settings of the visitors!
job Page visits
When you look at the visitor data for the Job Page, we noticed that the percentage of mobile users is higher than the normal page visitors.
One conclusion that we make out of this is that most people visit the job page after working hours.
insights about update behavior
Overall we see that Thursday and Tuesday are the most favorite days to post an update.
Maybe because it’s scheduled that way.
The weekend is really lacking behind and that turns out to be a missed opportunity.
insights about update conversion
Suprisingly Friday, Saturday and Wednesday have the highest conversion rates. While most updates are posted on Tuesday and Thursday.
What we experienced ourselves is that posting an update in the weekends will have better results. First of all because there is not that much competing content and second, on the long term it will still get attention on Mondays.
CTR = Click Through Ratio. The percentage of people that see the post and click on the link.
insights about engagement
Engagement is all about the interaction you get on an update.
We mean likes, comments and shares.
Company Page managers should inform the employees more about the updates, so they can engage with the content.
More engagement means more views.
insights about followers
When people connect their working experience to the right Company Page, they are automatically counted as followers.
Over time the total number of followers should grow organically by posting interesting updates and getting engagement.
What we see in our research results is that posting on a regular base, will also increase the number of followers.
the difference between a native and non-native update
Do you know the difference between native and non-native content on LinkedIn? Well, one thing you must know is that LinkedIn absolutely treats them differently.
The algorithm prefers Native content.
Native content at LinkedIn is all content that is placed directly on LinkedIn.
Images, video, tekst, uploaded documents, polls.
LinkedIn generally gives native content more exposure in the timeline.
So native content is preferred over non-native content.
Links to posts, articles, news websites, youtube video’s etc…
As this content directs people away from LinkedIn it is considered as external, non-native, content.
DID YOU KNOW THAT AN AVERAGE NATIVE POST FROM A COMPANY PAGE REACHES 66% OF THE FOLLOWERS AND A NON-NATIVE POST ONLY 28%?
difference in reach (impressions)
That means that a Native update gets 222% more impressions than a non-native update!
difference in engagement
difference in conversion
so now we have some benchmarks, but this is not the end
