💡 What are best practices for formatting Linkedin posts?
LinkedIn doesn't natively support formatting LinkedIn posts. But with AuthoredIn, you can make it happen.
Best practices depend mainly on the type of the post. For example, if you have content that is a listicle, always add bullet points to LinkedIn post. For bullets, you can use emojis, such as squares, checkmarks, stars, rounds, and similar.
If you have a post with longer sentences, use our LinkedIn post preview tool and see how your post will look in the feed. Focus on the mobile preview, as more than 50% of the LinkedIn users are reading the feed via a mobile app.
💡 How to add emojis to a LinkedIn post?
You can use AuthoredIn to add emojis to your LinkedIn post. When you open our editor, you will see an emoji picker where you can search and add them to your post.
There are different ways to use emojis. For example, to emphasize a sentence, increase post readability, and add bullet points to LinkedIn posts.
💡 How can AuthoredIn help me grow my LinkedIn profile?
Via our preview Linkedin post tool, AuthoredIn helps you to optimize your LinkedIn posts and make them stand out. It also helps you with formatting LinkedIn post; for example, you can make text bold in the Linkedin post, add emojis to a Linkedin post, add bullet points to Linkedin posts, etc.
Using AuthoredIn, you can optimize your headline and make readers interested in what you are saying. When someone clicks "see more", LinkedIn's algorithm will see your content as good and relevant. So it will show your post to more people.
Your post optimization shouldn't stop at the opening line. It is crucial how many seconds a person stays reading your content. That is why formatting of the LinkedIn post is crucial. If you emphasize some keywords (put them in bold or italic), write smaller paragraphs, and use emojis and white space to increase readability, more people will continue reading. LinkedIn will see it as compelling content and again put it into more feeds.
💡 Are you affiliated with LinkedIn?
No, AuthoredIn is not affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with the LinkedIn Corporation, registered in the U.S. and other countries. LinkedIn is a trademark of the LinkedIn Corporation.
💡 Is AuthoredIn similar to a LinkedIn POD?
No. Definitely not. We don’t believe in PODs, and we don’t recommend you to be a part of any community that likes and comments on other people’s posts automatically. Not only is it against LinkedIn rules, but you can easily lose credibility with your audience.
💡 I want to get more LinkedIn followers, what should I do?
You need to be consistent in writing posts, and contributing to other people’s posts - comments, comments, comments (not only likes)! You should also connect with people you know or would like to meet. Don’t forget about DMs. Start a direct conversation and get to know the person better.
One thing to keep in mind. Your growth will probably be more challenging than you imagine. You will have LinkedIn posts with low engagement and there will be times when you feel there is no point in LinkedIn content creation. However, to grow your followers, you need to understand what works and what doesn't.
As you can see, we cannot give you a magic wand to growing your LinkedIn audience, but we can always share everything we know on our LinkedIn page. So, make sure you follow us!
