Conversations Female Entrepreneurs Can Have On LinkedIn




Female entrepreneurs need to stop sleeping on LinkedIn, especially when almost all business coach for females entrepreneurs swear by it for business-to-business (B2B) interactions.

There are many ways of generating leads on LinkedIn. A few of them are:

  • Organic Leads
  • Paid Advertising
  • Social Selling


To find out more about them, keep reading. I will explain more about them a bit further on.

Before you can start finding leads on LinkedIn, update your profile. Most business coaches for female entrepreneurs think optimizing and upgrading your LinkedIn profile is the first step to generating good quality leads. Here are a few pointers you should consider:

  • Firstly, you need to add a few good keywords throughout your profile to increase visibility.
  • The biggest mistake most B2B marketers commit is thinking that their LinkedIn profile is their CV, which is not the case. Your LinkedIn profile is for addressing the concerns of your ideal clients and giving possible solutions for them.
  • Try to get recommendations of your ideal clients.
  • Add a professional photo to your profile. Your background photo needs to depict what your ideal client is looking for or needs.
  • Make sure people can connect with you. You can add your website link to your profile. If you don’t have a website, at least add your email address.
  • Pin important articles that you have written. This will increase their visibility and your visitors will be able to easily access them.

For reference, check out my LinkedIn profile:



Generating Organic Leads on LinkedIn

This is one of the simplest ways of using LinkedIn for lead generation. This is when someone finds your profile by searching your name or getting it in their recommendations. They can come across your profile by typing related keywords as well.

Networking also comes in handy to generate organic leads. If your ideal clients see one of their connections comment on your post, they might check out your profile. They may also take notice of you when their connection tags them in your post.

Paid Advertising on LinkedIn

When it comes to increasing awareness of your business, paid advertising is always crucial. It is highly advised by any business coach for women to hire a company to do the paid advertising for you.

There are two different types of paid ads. One is advertising your services directly in the inbox of your ideal clients. Another is advertising yourself in the feed of your ideal audience. Both are fairly effective ways of paid advertising and can easily help you generate high-quality leads.
