Publishing on LinkedIn

LinkedIn: Creating a post or writing an article from the home page.

Publishing gives members the opportunity to share their thoughts and expertise with other members. This helps grow their audience as well as their network.

Creating a post or writing an article (Exhibit 24.5) are the two options to publishing on LinkedIn. Circulation depends on how many followers the user has, whether these followers share the content, the hashtag’s resonance, and LinkedIn’s algorithm.

Typically, due to the high volume of posts and articles, very few get to see a publication. However, if a post or an article achieves high viewership, it is recommended to a much broader group of members, which greatly enhances its impact.

The published content becomes a part of the author’s LinkedIn profile and could boost the author’s reputation as an expert or thought leader.

LinkedIn articles and posts typically consist of the following elements (as shown in Exhibit 24.6, from top to bottom):

  • Author’s profile: This is displayed seamlessly at the top of the article or post. It includes the author’s name, profile picture, and a brief summary of their professional background.
  • Copy: This is the main body of the article or post, where the author shares their thoughts, insights, or experiences. It can include text, images, videos, and links to external sources.
  • Image: This is an optional element that can be included in the article or post to make it more visually appealing or to illustrate a point.
  • Headline: This is a short and catchy title that summarizes the main message of the article or post.
  • Destination URL: If the article or post includes a link to external content, this URL is usually included below the headline.
  • Engagement buttons: These are buttons that allow readers to engage with the article or post by liking, commenting, or sharing it with their network.
  • View count and demographics: This is a link that provides information on the number of views and the demographic breakdown of the viewers. Only the author of the post has access to this information.
