What to Post on LinkedIn
Should you really be posting on Linkedin? In episode 26 called, “Quick Win: Do I REALLY need to publish on LinkedIn for it to work for me?“, we mentioned this stat but only around 3 million users share content on a weekly basis. This means that only about 1% of LinkedIn’s 260 million monthly users share posts, and those 3 million or so users net the 9 billion impressions.
If you’re not used to posting on social media, it can be intimidating. Here are some ideas to get started:
1. Try to avoid sharing healthcare content
2. Share a brand’s blog posts
3. Respond to a brand’s tweet or LinkedIn post
4. Tag a brand on a guest post
5. Start with who is your ideal client
