Content is King
The more active and engaged you are on LinkedIn, the more visible you'll be on the timelines of your connections.
Content could include links to your website, articles about the property you’re managing, virtual tours, and much more. Video content - such as simple videos recorded on your smartphone - are a great way to engage with your connections and one of the most shared formats of social content to date.
