How to Use LinkedIn Publisher to Get More Visibility

By

Do you want more visibility on LinkedIn?

Are you using the new LinkedIn publishing platform?

Publishing content on LinkedIn Publisher can give your content and your reputation a boost.

In this article I’ll share the best practices for publishing your posts to LinkedIn for more visibility.

Why Use Publisher?


Posting articles to LinkedIn with Publisher makes the content searchable by keyword in LinkedIn’s post search box.

What you need to know for more visibility on LinkedIn with Publisher.


It’s a great way to showcase your knowledge and expertise in any given area, and that’s a big part of content marketing!

Beyond visibility in search, both your connections AND your followers see your published posts just like on Facebook.

If your post is viewed enough times, it’ll get picked up by LinkedIn’s newsreader, Pulse. At that point, you’ll get exponential views, comments and shares.

Your Publisher post can be picked up by Pulse.

Here’s a quick example showing just how powerful LinkedIn Publisher can be.

Wendy McClelland wrote an article called, “Why I Say NO to Coffee Meetings.” On LinkedIn Publisher, that single article got almost 60,000 views, 2,100 shares on LinkedIn, 515 comments, 218 Facebook likes and 93 tweets. I don’t know about you—but that’s usually more visibility then I get on my own blog!
