Using LinkedIn Publisher to Promote Your Brand

LinkedIn publisher or posts is a new tool that is slowly being added to everyone’s LinkedIn profiles.

Previously the only people that could publish posts on LinkedIn were its Influencers, celebrities and bloggers who LinkedIn selected personally to be able to post content onto the website.

Once you have access to the long-form publishing on LinkedIn, you can create long posts and blogs, full of rich media, with no character limit. The posts you publish are showcases at the top of your profile and can be searched for on and off LinkedIn.

Members that find your posts but either can’t connect with because you have hit 30k, or they don’t know you, can follow you, to receive your posts and updates on their homepage news feed, but not have to be connected with you.

Posts are a very powerful tool for blogging and advertising without many of the usual constraints LinkedIn has in place for update.

Tough Talk

While LinkedIn is rolling out the access to publishing posts slowly, you can apply for early access. And if you’re really serious about leveraging for profitable business growth, you should do.


Tool Tip

LinkedIn uses the first image that appears in your post as the preview image for it on your profile page. Be strategic with which image you wish to appear on your profile, to represent the entire post.
