Humans love real conversations. Shocker, right?
Most people use social media for one overarching reason: to drive traffic somewhere. But when it comes to LinkedIn, keeping people on the platform itself can often produce better engagement. While it’s nice to have some clicks on your latest post, it likely isn’t your cash cow tactic.
