Fullscreen, an Otter Media company and a global leader in social-first entertainment, serving both talent and brands, today announced it is launching a LinkedIn platform management and strategy practice. With more than seven years of experience navigating platform algorithms to benefit brands, this audience-first approach will help brands successfully increase their LinkedIn presence through content as the platform becomes one of the most influential social networks for brand communication and engagement.
With 303 million active monthly users, in the last year, LinkedIn has grown at a faster rate compared to any other social platform at +7.2 percent and in Q2 2019, platform sessions grew by 22 percent. It’s now one of the most important platforms for brands who can capitalize on the organic reach and engagement by taking advantage of emerging content formats, an evolving platform purpose, and rapidly expanding capabilities.
Fullscreen’s LinkedIn practice provides brands with a four-pronged approach — including strategy, content development, optimization, and reporting– to provide scalable strategic guidance. This includes how to build page presence indicating when, how often, and what kind of content should be posted. Content will be targeted to drive upper-funnel awareness and provide a runway for more lower-funnel KPIs. With LinkedIn’s recent focus on highlighting video, Fullscreen is in a position to help brands drive higher engagement on the platform. This is in large part due to their expertise within the video realm, deep understanding of platform algorithms, as well as working with hundreds of brands to create, optimize and distribute content across social. Similar to LinkedIn’s own findings, Fullscreen has found that despite videos averaging higher engagement than images (2.25%, 4.4x > images), brands post them at a much lower rate.
“LinkedIn has the highest organic reach rate of any social platform and offers brands a unique way to reach a highly targeted audience. Unlike any other platform, it gives brands a natural opportunity to contribute to their industry and become thought leaders, positioning them as invaluable to their followers. With LinkedIn’s rapid growth, we are seeing emerging content formats — it is no longer just a place for recruiters. The platform has real potential for brands,” said John Holdridge, General Manager of Brand Services at Fullscreen. “At Fullscreen, we know video better than anyone else and what it takes for brands to genuinely connect to their audiences through innovative and engaging content, all while understanding the ever-changing algorithm in a way no else can.”
As a leading full-service social-first company, Fullscreen provides expertise across all social platforms. They are in tune with consumer behavior changes, platform algorithmic shifts, and cultural moments, allowing for a fresh perspective to content. This unique approach balances immediate campaign/initiative KPIs with long-term organic strategies at the speed of social.
Specific to LinkedIn, Fullscreen’s innovative content approach offers brands the following capabilities:
- Strategy and Consulting: Working hand-in-hand with brands, Fullscreen builds a social ecosystem that fuels content success and contributes to real and measurable business objectives.

- Reporting: Fullscreen navigates reporting to best match the brand’s KPIs with the necessary insights to constantly stay nimble and pivot content strategies in real-time. LinkedIn’s unique audience insights dive into demographics by job function, industry, seniority level, and even company size, allowing for actionable insights detailing what content performed well and why.
