LinkedIn Company Page Followers
It wasn’t so long back that LinkedIn let you see all the Followers of a company page, it was a great way to do some competitor Intelligence and to get a feel for the reach of that company.
It was also a very good way for recruiters to source some extra people,
It was a very handy Lead Generation tool as well,. Followers of a particular company in your sector could just as easliy be your potential customers.
Then for some reason LinkedIn changed their minds and you now can’t look at anyones Followers..
When you now click on Followers nothing happens, you are left thinking is this going to do something or is that it… well unfortunately that’s it
The annoying thing with this is that LinkedIn rarely if ever let you know what is going on so it’s always a voyage of discovery when it comes to keeping up with what works and what doesn’t.
So many key features have been removed in the last year and so it was no real surprise to see that this feature had also been benn consigned to the bin.
My frustration made me start to look at a way around the problem and after an hour or so the solution presented itself…. LinkedIn company page Followers were revealed.
I am happy to share this with you and hope that you get some use from it…I have of course locked down my own profile so as to stop you looking at my Followers…
This seems to work most of the time so hope it works for you, let me know if it doesn’t and I will tweak the code so that it does in future.
There is no need to have a company either for this to work you can go and look at a company and apply the thinking to the page…read on and all will become clear.
Company Page Followers
Conduct a search for a company or simply type in the name of a company that you want to look at.
In this case I am going to look at the compamny page of a local company to me Iota Media who are a video production company and who are so much more than their name discribes….plug over with and fingers crossed my next videos will be at a discounted rate…
In the top search bar you will see a line of code that is the address of the company page that you are looking at
This code looks like this and it’s important to make sure that you only change the second part of the code.
The main code looks like this…
The interesting thing is that this code is not always the same and changes dependent upon the route into the company page so it may look like this
Now here comes the sicence bit….
When you see that line of code you need to DELETE the line of code from the question mark onwards, see below.
This holds true for which ever version of code is presented when you look at a company page. Lets take the bottom of the two examples and delete the last part of the code…you should then have something tha looks like this
To get to see the Followers of any page simply add this line of code after inserting a backslash /
The full line of code should now look like this
Now that we have the code in place the only thing to do is hit return and as if by magic the full list of Iota Media’s 12 Followers is revealed.
The great thing about this is if anyone who comes up with First name and the initial for the surname when you click on their name it reveals their full name…how good is that?
This little LinkedIn hack will probably be discovered and taken down as fast as I discovered it and doubtless there will be loads of people who will be very cross when it is removed.
My advice is to save the code to note pad or the Mac equivalent just in case the trick is removed.
I am no expert in using code but what we deliver at Customeyes Media are common sense approaches to sourcing people and opportunities using techniques like this one.
Lead Generation using simple methods gets huge results especially when combined with sound Telemarketing.
Many of you may have noticed that you can no longer see your own Followers by sector and industry when you go into your Posts area on LinkedIn
You should see this along with other information
There is a way around this as well and if you would like to know more then please do get in touch.
