Here are the top ten reasons to switch from LinkedIn Elevate for your sharing to Clearview Social:
1. LinkedIn Elevate is Canceled
They are going the way of Google+ and shutting down in December of 2020. Read more about it here. Some of the features of LinkedIn Elevate will live on in Google Pages, but from what LinkedIn themselves have reported, it will be a highly stripped down version of Elevate.
2. Pages will Have No Customer Support
Have a problem with the new pages features? Want help with it? You would have better luck getting the President of the United States on the phone. Pages will have the exact same support (or lack of support) you currently get on LinkedIn.com. With Clearview Social however, you will have an industry best sub-two minute response time using our on-page chat features when your users or marketers need help.
3. Say Goodbye to Analytics
LinkedIn pages will have greatly limited features including great reduced analytics pages. Clearview Social, however will not only provide you with every data point you need, and some you didn't even know you were missing (like Earned Media Value and Social Score), but they will also integrate with your CRM and provide complete data exports via PDF or API.
4. Wait, what happened to the training?
With LinkedIn pages, there will be no live training or hands-on help for your users. With Clearview Social we have custom training and contests to help companies dominate social by getting their employees sharing. Our average organization sees over a 1000% increase in inbound traffic from social media within 90 days of launching thanks to our Social Media Ramp-up training included with our software.
5. Pages will make sharing complicated again
Want your users sharing content in one click? Forget about it. With pages there will be one to two additional steps required for each share an employee chooses. Clearview however pioneered the "one click" share. Your employees simply open the email prompt, click "share" on their article of choice, and in one click the item is scheduled to share at the best time of day, coordinating automatically as to not share at the same time as other employees of the same organization.
6. Pages won't optimize sharing times
At Clearview Social we have developed the most intelligent sharing algorithm on the market. It actually learns using A.I. how to improve the scheduling of your shares every single week. This isn't a one-time-fits-all approach either. Peaktime(TM) constantly looks for the peak traffic windows to optimize the traffic you receive when you share. There are tons of tools that will look for high traffic times, but what really sets Peaktime apart is that it takes into account the same articles being shared by others in your organization and it will stagger out shares across multiple peak moments of time to get the most bang for your buck out of sharing.
7. One Size Fits One
With Pages, you won't have the ability to customize templates and add it graphics and leverage the email queues to be company newsletters. You are stuck with LinkedIn's branding and their idea of what looks best as an internal communication vehicle for your organization. Clearview Social on the other hand gives you complete creative freedom by partnering with you to make sure that messaging your send within your organization is in keeping with your brand guidelines and personality (or lack thereof).
8. No "Share All" Button
With Clearview Social, with each batch of articles you send out for your employees to share, there is an option to "share all." This button schedules out an entire week of social media posts at idea times, loading up your entire week with posts shared at ideal moments to make your look like a social media superstar. Pages won't have anything like this.
9. No Client Success Manager
At Clearview Social, the moment you launch, we have a dedicated Customer Success Manager to guide your through every step of your social media strategy. We understand that having tools people don't know how to use, is almost like having no tools at all. We aren't in the business of selling you software, we are in the business of helping you change key behaviors within your organization. Pages is going to leave you to figure it out for yourself.
10. You are no longer in control
Pages is going to decide how to display the images, headlines, and summaries based on the meta-data and open graph tags on your pages. You will no longer being control of making sure your employees share things the right way. At Cleaview Social, not only can customize every piece of the meta-data, but you can also customize per social network. Want different hashtags for LinkedIn and Twitter? Easy. Different personality in the headlines and comments? Of course you do. With Clearview we give you complete control over all of this so you can make sure people and your company always look great.
