Attend MarkeTech to Learn How LinkedIn Can Grow Your Business

Many business owners have found success with Facebook and Instagram, but what about LinkedIn? How can LinkedIn help grow your business, and is it worth the time?

Brent Pohlman, CEO of Midwest Laboratories, says yes.

LinkedIn has helped his growing company improve recruiting, increase brand recognition and gain more quality contacts.

“I think LinkedIn is one of the best networking tools,” Pohlman said. “Investing time in LinkedIn is one of the best decisions you will make if you want to grow your business.”

Pohlman will give a presentation on “How LinkedIn Can Work For You and Provide You With a Huge ROI” at GROW Nebraska’s MarkeTech conference on Tuesday, April 3, in Kearney.

He will show attendees how LinkedIn can boost marketing and sales, help recruit quality employees and foster quality network connections.

Pohlman said Linkedin can be a difference maker in a business.

“And the best news is you can do it with limited dollar resources,” he said. “It is really a matter of building the right relationships.”

Pohlman’s company, Midwest Laboratories, is an Omaha-based business that provides lab testing for the agricultural, food and beverage, pet food, feed, environmental and alternative fuel industries. Brent’s father started the company in 1975. Brent has worked at the company since 2005 and became the president and CEO in 2018.

The company employs a team of 167, and part of Pohlman’s goals are to continue to grow the business by attracting and retaining the best employees possible. Brent values his faith-based principles and looks for ways to continue to infuse those principles into his daily operations.
