In this conversation, Stephen and I go beyond creating a LinkedIn profile and discuss how to be more proactive on LinkedIn. By writing articles, creating short videos, or even streaming, you can gain organic attention on LinkedIn that isn’t always as accessible on other social media platforms. We discuss some of the key strategies to start and sustain a presence on LinkedIn.Key Points
- Articles can be used effectively to create content if you’re not yet ready for video, but still interested in building your personal brand.
- Consider a series of articles or other content that highlight your personal brand and speak to your leadership credibility.
- Use short videos (3-5 minutes) to tell a story that leads to a call to action. LinkedIn videos typically get more organic views than other social platforms.
- Live videos or steaming engage real-time conversations to have dialogue that invites relationships to go further.
