In selecting the "Top 10 Most Engaged Agency Executives on LinkedIn in the U.S.,” LinkedIn measured their engagement using a range of data points collected from our platform over the last three months. We analyzed the number of connections they have, content they shared, brands they followed, groups they belonged to, number of logins on the platform, and visits to multiple sections of the site.

If you’re an agency executive and would like to see your name on next year’s list, here are a few ways to boost your engagement and maybe even your career:

Build a quality network

LinkedIn offers a great way to stay connected and up-to-date with colleagues and clients. If you’re looking to expand your network, start by connecting with colleagues then move on to customers, vendors and industry peers and associates. From fostering business leads to job prospects, the more visible you are on the platform the more you can get out of it.

Polish up your profile

The more complete your LinkedIn profile is, the easier it is to be discovered. Make sure to keep your professional experience up-to-date, post content on the platform, and engage with content shared by your connections. Don’t forget a professional looking photo, since it’s always nice to put a name with the face.

Share, share, share

Share the most relevant content from top publishers with your agency contacts, so you can improve their experience and engage with them directly. This can also help you earn more connections.

Learn from the best

Follow thought leaders from clients/prospects to get their latest updates as well as get an inside scoop on those you may have the opportunity to pitch.
